Polish Haul - OPI, China Glaze & Zoya Holiday Collections

**all items purchased by me

Today I've got a bit of a collective haul to share since it's multiple brands and a few different purchase dates.  A good portion of these are from new holiday collections, but I've also got a few from a fall collection since the supply store was later in getting them in.  I'm including some swatches also.

At the very start of October, I went to the local beauty supply since there was finally an update on their Facebook page that the Fall collection of Zoya's PixieDust polishes were in.  When I got there, I saw that they had restocked the Color Club display as well.
The Uptown, Arabella, Carter, Chita
~The Uptown has already been "hauled" in my Spotted, Hauled & Swatched - Color Club post
~the Zoyas are from the Fall PixieDust collection
~~swatches down by the end of the post~~

Then a couple weeks into October, I found the new Mariah Carey Holiday collection from OPI, as well as the China Glaze Holiday collection (and at that point I hadn't seen anything about it).  I also had to check out the clearance rack and found an older China Glaze for $.99!
OPI I Snow You Love Me - Mariah Carey Holiday 2013
China Glaze Your Present Required, Happy HoliGlaze Holiday 2013
Blonde Bombshell (clearance polish), from the Eye Candy 3D Glitters Winter 2011 collection
 Some swatches:
I Snow You Love Me (dip and swirl the brush in the bottle, then work with the dots for placement)
Your Present Required, Blonde Bombshell, Boo-gie Down (Monsters Ball Halloween collection)
~1 generous coat of Your Present Required, 2 coats Blonde Bombshell and Boo-gie Down

And finally, a few days after the last visit there was another Facebook update that the Zoya Holiday collection was in, which I wanted some I had forgotten to pick up one of the colors of PixieDust that I had wanted.
Sunshine (Fall PixieDust), Dream, Payton, Mosheen
~Zenith Holiday collection 2013
And swatches of all the Zoyas:
Sunshine, Chita, Arabella, Carter, Dream, Payton, Mosheen
~Carter has 3 coats; Sunshine has one coat
~the rest are 2 coats, although Chita and Arabella didn't really need the 2nd
~Dream and Payton look like the perfect companions to 3 from the 2012 Holiday collection (Storm, Aurora, & Blaze)
~Mosheen is definitely a topper - a pretty icy blue baby bar glitter topper

Now I need to get to work on a couple more posts so that I'll have something going up on the days that we'll be gone next I need to dry and straighten my hair and then put some polish on...I need about 4 more hours for today, please.

See any polishes that you like?  Are you ready for the holiday season's mad rush yet?  And of course, let me know if you'd like to see any of these as a regular mani soon!
