I know, I've been away for weeks, but there are reasons. REASONS! I had family in for the holidays and just didn't have time to post. As soon as they left I went and visited my parents in Knoxville where my mom proceeded to get me sick. Thanks, mom! I'm still sick, but I'll deal. Did you have a good New Year's Eve and day? How are your resolutions going? My resolution is to keep the blog going for another year. You may have noticed that a ton of great bloggers have recently decided to quit. I get it, I really do. Of course I've considered quitting, but I'm just not there yet. On that note, shall we get to the review for today?

Freshly Fallen Snow comes from the My Winter Survival Collection from Great Lakes Lacquer. It's a silver metallic with loads of silver flakes and a holo finish. If you love that silver tinsel you put on trees, then you will love this polish. I wasn't sure if 2 or 3 coats would be needed, but I easily got away with 2. The formula was a tad thicker than some of my other GLL polishes, but I'm sure that it's from all of the flakes in here. In no way was it was hard to apply though. 

Freshly Fallen Snow is still still available for purchase on the Great Lakes Lacquer website (which is no longer on Etsy) for $11. I love it and wholeheartedly recommend Mariah's polishes to any nail enthusiast. Make sure to check out what Great Lakes Lacquer is up to on their Facebook and Instagram pages as well.

*These polishes were provided by the brand at a discounted price. All reviews are based solely on my opinion. For more information, please see my full disclosure at the bottom of the site.
