Gelish Limited Edition Holiday Colors from 2013

I just got home from a fabulous family vacation at Reddington Beach in Florida for Christmas!  Ahhhhh, I feel refreshed and ready to kick off the new year!  I intended to blog while I was away, but once I got there I really just wanted to relax and take a true vacation and not worry about anything blog or work-related… so that’s what I did! (The Christmas post that went up last week was written and scheduled before I left.)

Today I have a few swatches from limited edition Gelish collections that were released LAST year for the holidays. I realized as I was looking at my stash spreadsheet that I never swatched these colors on my nails, and for the sake of swatching ALL of the Gelish colors I had to do them. LOL I wrote about these colors last year along with a few comparison photos (see that post here).

Since these colors are from last year, I don’t know what the availability is.  I found all three on Amazon and have linked to the listings below.

This is Gelish Kick Off the New Year from the Year of the Horse Collection.  It’s a really gorgeous holographic glitter polish that has great coverage all on its own.  The swatch below is two coats with no base color.  It reminds me very much of LeChat Hologram Diamond in terms of coverage and sparkle.  Kick Off the New Year has holo glitters of all different shapes and sizes, including some bar glitters.  This is a really fabulous glitter polish for New Years Eve or a festive party!

Gelish Kick Off the New Year swatch by Chickettes.comRed-y For the Festival is also from the Year of the Horse Collection.  It’s a classic red cream with great coverage in just two coats.

    Sweet and lovely nails, I was so impressed with your new pics, had seen your old pics, as I was following your site at all time……………..YOU ARE THE MOST FANTASTIC, and the BEST! I ordered 3 bottles of Kick Off The New Year, 1 for me, and 2 for friends. So unfortunately, it is not at all as shown on your nails. Glitter, yes, I would compare to Vegas Nights, no bars, not a one found doing 10 nails. I believe, very seriously, that this product, purchased through Amazon, was made in China as a “knock – off”. I own many Gelish Harmony, and many bottles of “gelish” from 3 different stores from China with the “same Gelish colors”. I would like to e-mail you privately, so we can speak of this. You are welcome to contact me via my e-mail. You are such a lovely woman, and I just absolutely love your entire site. Much praise from me to you. Thank-you so much, your friend, Renee

      That is extremely disappointing. Amazon is great about returns and protecting customers, so I would definitely try to get a refund. As a seller on Amazon I can tell you that they put me through the ringer to prove that I was purchasing my products legitimately from the manufacturer. I had to provide packing slips, invoices, etc. It made me feel pretty confident in their efforts to only sell legitimate products. I purchase much of my own personal collection via Amazon and I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a knock-off.
