Prepare for the Thrill of the Chill!

S&M 3 December 2017 AFor Winter 2017 Gelish has introduced the Thrill of the Chill collection, with four dark plus one light wintry colors, and a glitter topper.  I’ve purchased the entire collection, and swatched them for you!

S&M 3 December 2017 C

They are, according to Nails Magazine, “Angling for a Kiss, a deep red cream; Let’s Kiss and Warm Up, a plum cream; Don’t Let the Frost Bite, a grape cream; Caviar On Ice, a taupe cream; My Main Freeze, a pale nude cream; and Ice Cold Gold”, the special effect shade.

If you prefer to see live swatches, please go to the Smoke & Mirrors YouTube Channel to see my swatching video and first impressions of this lovely new collection!

So far I’m most excited about Don’t Let the Frost Bite. But I’m currently wearing My Main Freeze. What about you?

Are you ready for the Thrill of the Chill?

No, really. Are you ready? ‘Cause apparently it’s happening!

I’m not looking forward to winter, but I am looking forward to Gelish’s Winter 2017 collection, called the Thrill of the Chill.

We don’t have any official info from Gelish yet, but I have seen the collection for sale on a couple sites. The colors are:

  • Angling for a Kiss – dark red creme
  • Ice Cold Gold – sparkly gold glitter topper
  • Caviar on Ice – chocolate brown creme
  • Let’s Kiss and Warm Up – deep wine creme
  • My Main Freeze – pastel pink creme
  • Don’t Let the Frost Bite! – very deep purple creme

I’ve noticed that there haven’t been any polishes labeled “Trends” lately, though one from each of the last couple collections seemed to have qualified.  Is the “Trends” line kaput? If you’ve heard, please leave a comment below!

I realize I say this every time, but from what I am seeing so far, I am loving these colors.  What do you think? Will you buy them now, or wait until the holiday rush is over?

My September 2017 Nails Magazine arrived in the mail this week, and inside it is the NailStyle insert for Fall 2017… which has a sneak peek of the Little Miss Nutcracker Holiday 2017 Collection from Gelish!

Gelish Beauty and the Beast Collection Swatches

beauty-and-the-beast-collection-swatches

Here are my swatches of the Gelish spring collection for Beauty and the Beast. They are gorgeous in person, and the photos don’t do them justice!  I have a feeling that people are going to LOVE The Last Petal. These colors are unique within the Gelish lineup, though I think The Last Petal is close to some other reds.  The above swatch of Enchanted Patina is two coats, and you can see that this polish works on its own and as a topper.

What do you think? Which is your favorite?
