Greetings, dear readers! I hope you've been having a wonderful week so far! I had the pleasure of participating in the 12 Days of Polish Project orchestrated by Allison of Le Polish. If you're not familiar with this project, let me fill you in! Allison partnered up with 12 different bloggers and swatchers, and we each provided an inspiration photo showcasing something special about what winter meant to each of us. If you recall, Allison and I worked together once before for my Made for Me Monday Series (which sort of fizzled out on me after several months, unfortunately) to create A Secret Garden, and I was eager to work with Le Polish again for this project.

One of my favorite things about the winter are the holiday lights, and because I live in wine country, I wanted a photo that incorporated both these ideas. I stumbled across this gorgeous photo by Michael Regnier, titled "Holiday Lights in the Vineyard". I passed this photo along to Le Polish and let Allison work her magic in creating my shade for the 12 Days of Polish Project.
Allison initially focused on the green for the base shade and pulled in other colours to wrap up the polish design.
On the 11th Day of Polish, my true love gave to me .... Olive More Wine, Please!
Three coats plus top coat
Olive More Wine, Please! is an olive green crelly with gold holo glitters and blue shimmer and flakes.
Allison has a knack for creating crelly shades with sublime formulas! In true Le Polish fashion, Olive More Wine, Please! applied like a dream. I actually only needed two coats for opacity but added a third because I wanted a larger blue flake for this closeup photo. I know, it's totally crazy, but you guys love me in spite of it, right? I like that this shade is a little unusual and not a particular colour you see often, but I know there are plenty of green fans that would be happy to sport this polish this winter!
Olive More Wine, Please! and the rest of the shades from the 12 Days of Polish Project will be available for purchase from the Le Polish website located here starting November 25th at midnight EST. All shades will be available in full size only (15mL) and will retail for $10 each.

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