Hello lovelies! Sorry for the lack of posting over the last couple of days… I’ve had a horrible tonsilitis which is starting to get a little better with antibiotics but it’s had me bedbound since Tuesday! Anyway, today I have an irresistible polish from Color Club, who have a brand new official UK stockist, at colorclubuk.com. They do in fact have both the Ruby Wing polishes (change colour in the sun!) and the Halo Hues collection arriving at their site next week so keep an eye out – the Halo Hues is a collection of holos! I already have my eye on Angel Kiss.
Anyway, today I have Gift of Sparkle for you to see – this was released as part of the Winter Affair collection which was Color Club’s Holiday 2012 collection.
Gift of Sparkle is a gorgeous mix of purple, magenta and holographic glitter. The pictures don’t really show how amazingly reflective the holographic glitter is – it’s really eyecatching! It dries matte, and I also noticed that it dries more pink-toned but when you add topcoat it takes on a thoroughly purple appearance. Which is quite awesome, so you almost have a choice of shade for your polish! I absolutely love this polish, it has all you need for the perfect party polish!
Gift of Sparkle applied really smoothly – I had no problems with patchiness or dragging and it was totally opaque at 2 coats. As with most glitters, it dried quickly, and to a matte finish. I did add a topcoat but this made little effect on the finish until I added a 2nd coat of topcoat – as shown in the photos. The 2nd coat of topcoat gives it a really glassy effect, which is very pretty.
Overall I am thoroughly taken with this polish – it’s so so pretty! Gift of Sparkle is priced at a very affordable £5 at colorclubuk.com, where they are selling other polishes from the Winter Affair collection, and other more hard to find polishes such as Fashion Addict and Revvvolution! What do you think? Will you be picking Gift of Sparkle up? Are you as excited as I am that Color Club have made their way to the UK?! Let me know in the comments!
Gift of Sparkle was sent to me by Color Club UK for unbiased review consideration.
