Polish 'M Gingerbread Cookies

After a brief break for a green St. Patty's manicure, I am back with another neutral! And a new to me brand! Today I have a holiday polish from Polish 'M (formerly known as Laquerlicious). I'm not sure how I stumbled across Polish 'M (probably saw swatches on Instagram) but I saw several polishes I liked and decided to take the plunge. Today I have polish from her winter/Christmas collection called Gingerbread Cookies!

Gingerbread Cookies is a very pretty taupe grey that is loaded with blue/pink shimmer and duochrome flakies (to my eyes they seem to shift bronze/green). The taupe base is a tad on the sheer side-- I used three coats and there was maybe a hint of visible nail line though nothing very obvious. The formula was good, perhaps leaning a bit thicker depending on how you prefer your polishes, but I didn't have any problems while applying it. The only issue is that some the larger flakie pieces may want to stick out from your free edge, but that's pretty easy to fix.

This neutral is really lovely and unique! And even though the name is holiday themed, I think this polish is one that can be worn at any time of year! I was impressed with the polish, which is good, because I bought several others when I purchased this one. I can't wait to try them!

Do you like color theme weeks? Thought I'd try something different this time around!


  1. That totally looks like something I would wear. It's beautiful!

  2. This neutral is simply gorgeous! I would totally wear it.

  3. I love neutrals with flakies! I have at least 5 versions :) They are some of my favorites! I didn't know that Polish M had one, so now I need to keep an eye out.

  4. This is gorgeous! Totally my kind of polish.

  5. I love how this is a neutral color but still a very interesting polish :) it's gorgeous and wearable all year round!
