Gelish MINI The Big Chill Collection Swatches and Review

Hey there! More swatches today. I haven't featured gel polish on the blog for awhile. I love gel and if I didn't change my polish so much, I'd definitely wear it more often. The Gelish MINI The Big Chill Collection includes five cool shades with shimmery finishes and one warm coppery glitter. I'm obsessed with two of these so let's get started.

Call Me Jill Frost is an intense purple. The shimmery pearl finish gives the color so much depth. It is seriously gorgeous and I'm crazy about it.

Snowflakes & Skyscrapers is a medium taupe with a blanket of fine coppery glitters. Awesome for work, but definitely not boring.

The Big Chill is a soft gray pearl.  It's perfectly cool for winter, but will be equally soft and delicate for spring.

I'm Snow Angel is a deep burgundy red with a slight golden shimmer. I always cap my tips (especially with gel) but this one pulled a bit. The combination of red and gold is really pretty.

My Jewels Keep Me Warm is a mix of pink and copper glitters in a orangey-pink-tinted base. I used three thin coats of color and couldn't quite get it opaque. But it's still pretty and would make an great topper.

And last, but certainly not least, is my absolute favorite. I Skate, You Skate, We All Skate is a dark and dusty green with a beautiful blue shimmer. I didn't expect to like this one so much, but I'm obsessed. You have to see this one in person to fully appreciate it.

All swatches are applied exactly as prescribed with the Gelish Foundation base coat (I used Elmer's glue underneath so I could remove the swatch without soaking) and Top It Off top coat. I cured between each step with the Gelish Pro 45 lamp for 45 seconds and removed the sticky residue with Gelish Nail Surface Cleanse. I love how shiny and long-lasting Gelish is!
