Today I will present swatches of three champagne-themed nail polishes: Mavala's Oslo (not officially a champagne polish, but the colour is too perfect), China Glaze's Champagne Bubbles (from the 2011 Holiday collection), and of course, Julep's Vivien.
Here they are side by side. I have posted more pictured of the individual polishes further down.
And here's a sneak peak at my favourite combo, pictured at the bottom of the post:
First, here's Mavala's Oslo. I don't think it's meant to be a christmassy nail polish, but then again who knows? This colour is my go-to champagne colour. I really think it looks fantastic. It's a sheer polish though so I had to put on 3 coats to get to this opacity.

Next up is China Glaze's Champagne Bubbles. Another sheer 3-coater. When I ordered this one I had high hopes for it, but when I got it I felt a bit disappointed. It's obvious that they tried to make Champagne Bubbles really gold-coloured, and I really love the tiny little silver flecks that act as bubbles, but the colour is just too... mustardy... for me.

Julep - Vivien (2 coats):
Here is Vivien over Champagne Bubbles. I don't hate it, but meh... still too mustardy.

And finally, my very favourite of them all!!!! I love love love this combo! Makes me want to drink a whole bottle of champagne all on my own! Muahaha!

I'm so happy with this wonderful, luscious, New Year's Eve-y glitter! If you're as excited as I am, you can order Vivien on the Julep Store.
That's it... hope you enjoyed! :)
