Toetally Tuesday #5 - Silver and Gold

Aw, it's always a little bittersweet when Christmas is over for the year. I feel like after Thanksgiving so much changes just because it's the "holiday season." Now the season is over and kids start the 365 countdown to next Christmas (which by the way is down to 362 by the way--so I guess not only kids countdown, lol). Anyway, today's Toetally Tuesday is inspired by a specific part of the Christmas movie favorite Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Burl Ives' "Silver and Gold". The movie clip can be seen here if you'd like. On to the nails!
For these I used one of my new Christmas polishes: China Glaze Midnight Kiss. 
I swatched it on my fingernails and will post that maybe tomorrow (unless I forget). I also used Kleancolor Silver Pearl and Color Club Art Club in white.

And some administrative duties:
Yesterday's post (featuring the LA Color Craze Metallic polishes) received a question from Rachel of Rachel's Nails asking how watery they were. Today i went back between manicures and did a layer by layer polish job for you all to see. The green and silver/gray were opaque as my original pictures were in one coat so those aren't included. The pink and purple do change coat by coat. Here are my new swatches:

The pink with one coat (index), two coats (middle) and three coats (ring).
 And the purple with one coat on the middle finger and two on the ring finger.

And one last thing! Rachel (of the linked above Rachel's Nails) is having a 50th follower giveaway! Make sure you go check out her blog for more info but here is a list of just a few of the great things she's giving away this time:
