Good afternoon, dear readers! I hope you are having a wonderful week! For today's blog post, I have the pleasure of sharing the December Monthly Mystery Bag from le polish. If you love getting a surprise every month, this bag is for you! Each month you purchase, you will be sent a full sized seasonally appropriate polish in addition to a hand-care or beauty item. Monthly bags ship on the 3rd of the month, and in order to be eligible, you have to purchase your subscription by the end of the previous month. Subscription choices include 1 month, 3 month and 6 month options with more savings the larger the subscription. Now that I have filled you in on the details, let's check out what will be in December's Monthly Mystery Bag! My lucky readers are getting a peek into the bag, so if you prefer a mystery, read no further!

The December le polish Monthly Mystery Bag is about preparation for the upcoming New Year festivities. Each bag will include a polish and a glitter nail mani fizzy. 

Glitter Nail Mani Fizzy
After a tough day, you deserve a little relaxation time. Fizzies are the perfect way to do just that. Drop the fizzy in a sink or bowl full of warm water and watch it spring into action! The fizzing action will delight you as the moisturizing oils soften and soothe your dry skin and cuticles. A dazzling finger shaped fizzy to match your New Year's Eve manicure in Sweet Honeysuckle scent. Perfect to prep for your big night out!

I managed to break my mani fizzy into tiny pieces after snapping this photo. I *could* place the blame on my toddler and cat, but I'll take responsibility for it this time. At least I was able to get a cute photo of it in the previous picture! It certainly does look like a finger, and I love the sparkled flakies at the "nail"! I'm a big fan of soaking my hands to give them some tlc, and I do like that even if a fizzy breaks, it is still perfectly useable. My toddler actually LOVES soaking his hands with me so I use a fairly large tupperware for both our sets of hands. This one is nicely moisturizing and I enjoy the honeysuckle scent. While I don't like most floral scents, honeysuckle is one I do love and reminds me of when I used to pick them when I was a little girl.

Polish
10, 9, 8...
A New Year's Eve Celebration in a bottle! A black crelly packed with shimmer and gold confetti glitter. It's like being there when the ball drops!
When I think of New Year's Eve celebrations, I usually think of the classy black, gold and silver decorations, and I am happy that Allison, the mastermind behind le polish, decided to stick with this colour palette. 10, 9. 8... is a pretty black polish filled with these amazing gold glitter pieces. The gold pieces do get a little lost on the nails slightly if the black polish base covers them, but it does make for an interesting manicure. The gold glitter pieces are a little bulky so I needed a few coats of top coat to help smooth my nail down. The polish went on pretty easily for me although you do need a little extra patience with the gold glitters. They can stick off of the nails depending on your application technique, but it is easy to either push them back up onto the nail or just remove the strays that stick off. I have it shown here with two coats of polish plus a two coats of topcoat.
I like the overall look of this polish, although it was a little sad to see the gold confetti glitters covered up so much. I think this would probably look better if I layered a single coat over a black base to really let the golden glitters and shimmer shine. Even in the slightly muted state, I still got a lot of compliments on my nails when I wore this out, and it is a fabulous choice to wear while you ring in the new year.

If you are interested in the December Monthly Mystery Bag, now is the time to get your subscription order in*! One month is only $13 and comes with two products to pamper yourself with to end out this year. The mystery bags ship out on the 3rd of the month. If surprises aren't for you, over pours of the products from the bags are listed on the le polish website on the 12th of the month to allow subscribers ample time to receive their products. Overpours of polish and excess bath and body products are in separate listings when they are available.

I am really excited to be introduced to a new indie brand, and I like that there are full mystery bags* that are affordable for a nice treat for yourself or your loved ones. I'm eager to see what all else Allison creates for le polish!

What do you think of monthly mysteries? Do you like surprises?

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!

*Update: After this month's mystery bag, le polish will be taking a break from creating mystery bags. There may be more in the future, but December will be the last for the time being.

  1. Those gold flecks are excellent! I'm not usually a gold person, but they look nice surrounded in black.

  2. I agree I wish the gold would stand out more against the black. The combination though is lovely and so perfect for New Years.
