Now I know you’re probably thinking I’m a bit crazy writing about a Christmas collection when it’s the middle of August (mind you the weather is borderline Christmas-like!), but AndyLou and I were invited along to a preview of all of the Boots Christmas collections ages ago and we’ve been itching to tell you about it ever since!

There were all sorts of fabulous goodies there and we’ll make sure to write about them all soon, but of course, the first thing I want to tell you about is the Boots No7 Christmas Collection 2010 nail polish.

Boots No7 have released two gorgeous mini nail polish collections for the party season, both inspired by precious metals and gemstones – the sets are called ‘Smoky Jewels Mini Nail Kit’ and ‘Precious Metals Mini Nail Kit’. I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Precious Metals Mini nail kit nail polish collection.

Each of the kits is made up of 4 limited edition mini nail polishes and are both a complete bargain at only £8.50 each.

I loved all 4 of these nail polishes which is almost unheard of with any sort of make up collection, there’s always at least one dud!

The gold nail polish is very similar to Chanel Le Vernis Gold Lame nail polish from the Chanel Orient Extreme collection and the bronze nail polish is really similar to Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess nail polish (obviously at a much cheaper price!)

The theme for the Boots No7 Christmas Collection 2010 is ‘Sparkle & Shine’ and the whole make-up collection is built around metalics – that’s not to say it’s glitter-central, don’t worry you won’t end up looking like a 5 year old who’s been let loose with the craft supplies!

The collection concentrates instead on a little bit of glitter and a lot of gorgeous shimmer! I will make sure to tell you all about the other make-up in the Boots No7 Sparkle & Shine Christmas Collection as soon as I can!

*Update* The No7 Christmas Collection nail polishes are available to buy instore and online at boots.com now for just £8
