Christmas has come and gone, and the holiday season has long passed. Spring is about a week away here in the northern hemisphere and the last of February's snow has just about melted from my yard. Yet, here I am, posing a Christmas/holiday collection. Truth be told, it doesn't really scream 'holiday' to me apart from the obvious paring of red and green, so no worries about wearing out-of-season color. (Like I ever worry about that, hah!)
Anyone else have a really weird winter? I know I mentioned it before, but it didn't even feel like Christmas happened this year. Maybe it's because there wasn't any snow, but, man... So weird. At least I bought an ugly sweater. It's so horrible, I love it so much, you'd be proud of me.
ANYWAY. Color Club Winter Affair!
Color Club Winter Affair. I love this type of color. A dark base with lighter duochrome shimmer. The base of this one is a very dark purple. It has an earthy, brown-toned softness to it and it's nearly black. The shimmer is a tiny glass fleck type that reflects several different colors. I see wine purple mainly, but there's also red, gold/yellow and orange.

Color Club Snowflakes over Winter Affair.
(Multi-color effect strongest over this one.)
The formula on all of these was good. Nothing note-worthy. Standard Color Club quality. The only qualm I had was that Glitter Wonderland was a three-coated while the rest were opaque at two. Dry time was quick, the brushes were good, really not much else to add!
Great collection. Gift of Sparkle is the must-have, in my opinion. It's the only color that actually looks new to me. Different. Unique. They're all super pretty, but that one's just... wow. Even if it does need extra topcoat.
