Color Club, Beyond The Mistletoe - Full Collection Swatches

All are 3 coats except Jingle Jangle. Over all this is a great collection, many of the colors were prettier on the nail than I thought they would be based on how they looked in the bottles. My only complaint is that besides Holiday Splendor, the glitters should have had a tinted base. I think the ones with clear bases need underpants. Holiday Splendor is awesome though. With a thick top coat these are pretty smooth but not totally. Holiday Splendor is though because it has less glitter than the others.

By the way, you can find the whole collection from Ross or DD's for $8.

Candy Cane - light rose pink with some other pink glitters, no holo

Sugarplum Fairy - very light purple with holo glitters, very pretty, reminds me of a franken I made called Unicorn Vomit

Jingle Jangle - this is 4 coats. It has periwinkle glitter, soft purple glitter, and aqua glitter that looks green under artificial light.

Gingerbread - light gold with some green and holo glitters

Beyond The Mistletoe - light green glitter with holo glitter, this is the only one I'm slightly bored by, it's not very exciting but it's still very pretty

Holiday Splenor - I saved the best for last, this is a very bright kelly/grass green with lots of delicious holo glitter, my camera could not properly capture the amazingness of this color

NOTD: Orly Hally's Comet

This has been my top lemming for ages and now it's miiiiiiine!!!! Allyson from Ali's Nail News sent it to me. (thanks secret pumpkin goddess!!!)

Putting this on was like a spiritual experience. It's even more beautiful than I imagined!

Here it is with 3 coats. The formula was great, no application problems at all. It really glows!

ELF Desert Haze, Pure Ice Oh Baby

I'm not into neutral polishes at all but I loved this color! ELF's Desert Haze is a lovely cream light taupe. The formula is good, I didn't have any problems with application. I topped it with Pure Ice's Oh Baby for a little extra sparkle.

Here it is with Oh Baby over it.
