Frances Five holiday collection by Empressmm swatch & review

I have a new collection from Empress by Mya Michele to show you today. The Frances Five holiday collection. This collection consists of five polishes; Hot Cocoa, Shimmery Candy Cane, Golden Carols, By the Fireplace and Midnight Kiss. These polishes are meant to be worn over a black base or similar dark colored base to make the color stand out more.

Let's get started.

Hot Cocoa:

Midnight Kiss is a darkened green with black undertones. Swatch shows two thin coats over a black base.

Golden Carols:

Golden Carols is a golden shimmery polish. Swatch shows two thin coats over a black base. I'm sure this one could be sponged on to make it opaque. Would also look great over red or green.

Shimmery Candy Cane:

Shimmery Candy Cane is a pink shimmery polish with pink scattered pink micro glitter. Swatch shows two thin coats over a similar base. 

It's a beautiful collection and the only downside is that they have to be used over a dark base. I'm sure some people don't mind doing that. They could be used on their own if you don't mind visible nail line. I think they would be great for pond manis and stampwhiches too. I'll have to do some looks with these soon.

What do you guys think of this collection?

The Frances Five holiday collection will be available at for $4 each (15ml). They are discounted for the reason that they need to be layered.

Thank you for reading and happy painting :)
