Pine-ing For Yule – 2014 Toys For Tots ® Charity Polish

Pineing For Yule

Pine-ing For Yule is the 2014 Toys For Tots ® charity polish. All over the world the evergreen, triangle shaped pine tree has become a symbol of the holiday season. This year, KBShimmer pays homage to the Christmas Tree with the 2014 charity polish, Pine-ing For Yule. Holographic evergreen triangle “trees” swim among red mini star “tree toppers.” Holographic glitters in red and sliver light up this Christmas polish with their rainbow sparkle.  Micro holographic glitters complete this wintery polish.

I used 1 coat over KBShimmer Shore Thing.
