I'm back. I'm trying to get into a routine Sunday blog break, but this weekend we were busy with household projects (including The Mani Cave) so I took Saturday off too. Speaking of the TMC, I hope I have a decent update ready for you on Wednesday. As of today, my quest for the perfect polish rack system is losing altitude and airspeed. But fortunately hubs and I may have discovered a solution. Okay...more on that Wednesday. For today I have a Color Club Winter Affair Duo mani to show you. These polishes are part of the 2012 Holiday Collection.
I'm not quite riding the Color Club train yet. They aren't really sold in my area and my brief experience with their polishes hasn't been stellar. But put something on the end cap at TJ Maxx and tell me I'm getting a discount...and suddenly I MUST have it. The polishes in this pack didn't have names on them (why oh why??) but a quick google search solved that problem...sorta. Glitter Wonderland is a beautiful shimmery purple that glitters with fuschia and blue. Application was great and it was opaque in two coats.
On my accent finger, I have one generous coat of the second polish in the duo. Online, the topcoat in the full collection is a flakie called Snow Flakes. But my polish isn't a flakie. It's still an iridescent topcoat...but it's small round glitters...not flakes. I know there were a few versions of this set roaming the interwebs, but no one mentioned round glitters instead of flakes. Personally, I prefer non-flakies anyway.
If you have any intel on this polish, let me know. I won't sleep at night until I get it sorted out! :)
