Tinsel is from the Festive collection, and it's a stunning royal purple with hot pink shimmer. This picture hardly does justice to the shimmer effect; in real life it looks like a very expensive car paint job (Mr London reliably informs me that this polish looks like the paint job on a TVR, whatever one of those is) crossed with a sweetie wrapper. The polish is on the thin side rather than the thick so it applies very smoothly, but I did get complete coverage with three coats. It dried quickly, and the picture is without a top coat. Wear is also very good; I applied this on Thursday evening, we had a huge clean-up of the house yesterday, and I am chip-free with almost no tip-wear on Sunday morning.
One thing I really like about this line is that selected polishes are available in 5ml sizes for £3.50. I have short nails and I like to change nail polish regularly, so I appreciate the option to buy a smaller size for less; I rarely use up a standard 15ml nail polish. I didn't find the smaller brush problematic to apply at all; the brush itself is a decent size, but if you have really long nails you'd probably be best with the standard bottle.
Here's a picture of the polishes I was sent next to a standard OPI - aren't they cute and dinky? From left to right - OPI Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow, HJ Manicure Blizzard, Tinsel and Midnight. Blizzard and Midnight are from the Snow collection, and I'll be posting nail pictures of those in due course.
Here's a shade chart (all pictures are clickable for a closer look):
HJ Manicure polishes are available from HJManicure.com and cost £8.50 for 15ml, and £3.50 for 5ml.
