Mary Kay At Play Hail to the Nails Mini Nail Lacquer Trio

Today might be Halloween, but I'm personally already looking forward to Christmas. There are a ton of holiday sets that have already captured my attention, and today I have an adorable little nail polish trio to share with you! Mary Kay At Play's Hail to the Nails Mini Nail Lacquer Trio* ($18 CAD) would make a great stocking stuffer, or a fun set to "treat yo self" to!

"Nail art is all the rage! Now the fashionistas on your list can enjoy hours of holiday fun creating their own festive designs. This dream trio features three of the must-have shades of the season, each vibrant and sparkly. There’s fun fuchsia, bold blue and shimmering silver. These party colours can be worn alone or mixed together to create endless style statements. Makes a cute stocking stuffer too!
Set includes: Inky Blue, Silver Sparkle and Pink Hottie" - Mary Kay

This set includes three mini polishes - a navy, magenta, and silver shimmer top coat. These polishes are small, but the brushes are still a very good size! Pink Hottie has a slightly sheer formula, and I found it a bit hard to work with. The colour didn't dry evenly, as you can see in the photo below.

I had similar issues with the shade Inky Blue - even with two coats the colour didn't apply evenly. This polish dried quickly, to a semi-matte finish. I did get pretty severe chipping after a single day of wear with this polish.

My favourite polish from this trio is definitely Silver Sparkle! This is a beautiful shimmery top coat. This definitely won't ever build up to an opaque colour, but I think that it would look great over most dark polishes. One coat gave me a nice dusting of sparkle!

Mary Kay At Play's Hail to the Nails Mini Nail Lacquer Trio is a cute set, but the formula of the polishes just didn't wow me. I do appreciate Mary Kay giving us something different than the typical red and green holiday colours, but there are so many amazing polishes formulas out there. Have you tried any of Mary Kay At Play's polishes before? What did you think of the formula?
