What’s Your Point-settia (two coats) is a red crème with a touch of orange.

Overall, I was impressed by the glitter toppers.  I worried they might be a bit too chunky and gloppy but the application was easier than expected.  I was a bit dismayed at the sheer amount of reds, but Fashion A Bow was the stand out for me.  I adore the orange-red jelly, a bright color that’ll take us right into spring.

OPI has also released Don’t Speak, an 18K gold top coat as an accompanying polish.  It’s a bit pricey for me at $30, but it looks pretty spectacular!

Will you be picking up any of these as stocking stuffers?  Maybe I can talk my husband into getting me Don’t Speak as a stocking stuffer…
