I can’t seem to get enough of nail polish lately. I’m going to point the finger directly at my pal Kisten over at Polish Pauper.

Is she my enabler? My polish pusher? Hm it’s a fine line, but one I’m happy to walk with her if it means she continues to turn me on to amazing products.

The latest is the Zoya Ornate Holiday Collection, especially Storm, a black glitter-flecked metallic polish. This is where Kisten and her polish blogger brethren would stop and correct me, pointing out that it’s a holo polish, meaning that is has holographic glitter (and according to the Zoya site, microdiamond glitter too).

I don’t care what it’s called — it’s amazing. I can’t remember a time when I’ve been stopped more often by random people asking about my nails. The entire collection is spectacular — there’s a red, purple, gold, green and silver (with bar-shaped glitter), all jammed with delicious glitter, making it look like you’ve dipped your fingers in sparkly sprinkles.

The polish is crazy easy to take off as well, given the volume of glitter, that’s pretty fantastic. I had all but stopped wearing glittery polish because it was such a pain to take off (the flecks of glitter would laugh at the cotton, acting like sparkly sand paper instead of just sliding off the nail). Not at all the case with the Zoya Ornate Collection.

I’ve been a fan of Zoya for some time, but my love affair has been reignited by Storm and the rest of the Ornate Collection. Me and Z will be sparkling our way through the holidays.
