Silly Bee's Chickadees Gift of Melly 2014: Ida's Electric Snow (plus Giveaway!)

Provided for Review 
Sponsored Giveaway

Hello again! To make today even more festive, I have a new collaboration holiday polish from Silly Bee's Chickadees to share with you guys. Earlier this year Melly asked if I would like to take part in her Silly Bee's Chickadees Gift of Melly and I am excited to show off what we came up with. The Gift of Melly is a collection of collaboration polishes inspired by favorite holiday movies and $2 from each polish will go the charity chosen by each of the participating bloggers.

I chose Hospice Austin as the charity to support. While there are a number of wonderful national charities and awareness organizations, I feel that giving support to a local charity or service makes a huge impact in your own home base. Hospice Austin is a a non-profit organization that provides a enormous service to families and patients in their time of need and for each bottle of Ida's Electric Snow purchased, $2 will go to them.

I chose The Nightmare Before Christmas as my holiday movie. It's definitely something I watch every December (as well as October) and I especially love the scene where Jack Skellington discovers Christmas Town. I have been know to sing What's This? way too much, so I chose that particular scene as my inspiration. 
Ida's Electric Snow is a clear based topper polish with matte white glitter, various colored metallic glitter and a touch of blue iridescent shimmer/glitter. 
I can not tell you just how much I love this polish! You can totally see the inspiration behind this, the white snow, the holiday lights, the sparkle in the air, so so fun!

Here is another layered look, this time over a dark base to show off those iridescent glitter. 
For each photo, I applied just one coat over the base color. 

What do you think? I hope you like it as much as I do.
