For The Love Of Polish December 2015 "Tis The Season" Box

Hey Polished Friends!,

How are you? I'm okay. I received some bad news on boxing day. My uncle died on Christmas and because my dad didn't want to upset me on he decided to tell me boxing day night when he knew I would be home and not out on the road. I'm still in shock. It hasn't hit me yet you know? I guess I'm in denial. 

Anyways...I don't mean to bring anyone down or anything. Today I'll be sharing this months For The Love Of Polish Box. This months theme is Tis The Season and boy do these polishes fit perfectly. For those who don't know this is a monthly box that you have to keep your eyes out for from Polished For Days because once they are gone that's it! Each month you get three polishes with some nail vinyls/stencils and some goodies. Two of the main polishes are from Polished For Days and Illyrian Polish. The third one is always a guest polish. This months guest polish was Delush Polish! Enough of my blabber let's get started!

Hiya!,

How goes it? There's this station in Toronto that plays Christmas music right from when the Santa Claus parade starts until 11:59pm on Boxing Day. Each year they have "Santa" come into the studios and you can call in and your child gets to speak with him. So that's what I'm going to be doing later. TRYING to get through so my daughter can speak with " Santa" lol. 

Anyways today I have this really cool effect to share with you. I've seen people doing Textured Stamping before and I always wanted to attempt it. I finally got around to giving it a try! See more after the jump!
