I C U and a Little Treat

Quick design today since I spent the better part of two hours fighting my computer…. dealing with lots of programming mumbo jumbo- I won’t bore you but if you’re interested jot me an email. This is (obviously? Not so obviously?) supposed to be scary monster eyes staring out from the dark at you… ready to make you scream!

  C U
Haha, get it? I see you? Yeah well, I thought it was funny. For this (very) quick manicure, I started out with two coats of Color Club’s Smooth Operator and one coat of Illamasqua’s Boosh as a base. I then used OPI’s The IT Color, Zoya’s America, OPI’s On Collin’s Ave, Nina Ultra Pro’s Bossa Nova, Nina Ultra Pro’s Salsa, and OPI’s Chop-Sticking To My Story for the eyes, putting another dab of Boosh for the pupils of most. The pupils of the big eyes are just Boosh and another dot of America. I topped off with one coat of Color Club’s 0-60 Speedy Top Coat.
The reason for my rush today is that I REALLY wanted to show you these fantabulous glitters from Color Club’s Enchanted Holiday Mini Set. I saved the decals, star glitters, and rhinestones for when I wear them as actual nail art- I didn’t want to waste them on just a quick swatch post! I promise I’ll do a neat-o design with these shades and their nail art accessory counterparts closer to the holidays.
Color Club’s Enchanted Holiday Collection

I LOVE Color Club because it is the company with the most one coat wonders for me. I used one slightly medium/thicker coat just because that’s how I roll, but you could definitely use two super (emphasis on SUPER) thin coats and get full coverage and long lasting wear. These shades are SO glitter dense- packed with sparkly goodness! Whoooieee!! I love them!

From L-R (coats) Wishlist Red (1), Magic Elf (1), Enchanted Holiday (1), Snowflakes (1)
Wishlist Red is a red jelly with red glitter and its so scrumptuous that in person, its so hot you might start a fire!

Magic Elf is a green shimmer with a gold flash. The formula on both Magic Elf and Wishlist Red were extremely smooth with even coverage and fast drying time.

Enchanted Holiday is a dense gold glitter in a clear base. THIS IS ONE COAT!!!! I couldn’t believe it!!! You’ll want to use a top coat since its all glitter so it dries slightly bumpy.

Snowflakes looks like that iridescent sparkle that you see right after a night of heavy snow, where the sun reflects off of the ground and blinds you (in a good way). It’s a translucent white polish that is so glitter packed that it dries super quick and tends to be on the thick side- but not in a bad way. You can place it wherever you like and it dries rock hard. You’ll want a top coat again here because it’s a bit bumpy.

You’d think that cleanup would be a bit…. difficult, but to be honest, I let these dry completely and after five seconds of holding a cotton ball on top, they slid right off! Such easy cleanup; these definitely are some of my favorite glitters this season.

This mini collection is already available at etailers like www.transdesign.com and www.victoriasnailsupply.com as well as Bed Bath and Beyond, Duane Reade and Harmons.

Some of the products in this post were sent to me for consideration and review by the manufacturer. For more information, please read my disclosure statement.
