Katie knows me well.
This polish was one of the few still hanging out in my magical bag of polish Katie sent home with me when I went to visit her in Richmond. I haven’t been into glitter as of late but Wink, Wink, Twinkle looked so lovely in the bottle I finally decided to try it. To say this least, Wink, Wink, Twinkle has won me over!
Wink, Wink, Twinkles is from Color Club’s summer 2011 Starry Temptress collection and is a red based purple neon with silver glitter. I thought the glitter might be a bit holographic but I didn’t pick up much (if any) of that on the nail.
The formula is very good. I used just two coats in my swatches and it went on smooth and opaque. Because Wink, Wink, Twinkle is a neon it does, of course, dry to a semi-matte finish. Due to the glitter the finish can also be a bit bumpy. A nice, thick coat of the Barielle Gel Top Coat.
I ended up just loving this polish (I’m sure Katie is anything but shocked) plus it matched my phone case and that always makes me happy. Even though Wink, Wink, Twinkle is from a 2011 collection no worries! It is still available on Amazon (with free shipping!) and from the Color Club website.
Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump. I included a picture I took in the sun!

Ok. So I just want to say that I really did think I was going to love this nail polish. My love of chartreuse nail polish is well documented on this blog. Every spring when the pollen is EVERYWHERE I get the chartreuse nail polish itch. Plus, I pretty much lived in OPI Life Gave […] Continue reading →
You know what I could use right now? A frozen daiquiri. Ok, probably not because it’s freezing outside and well before noon. But hey, technicalities. I do, however, like a good frozen daiquiri once in a while. Especially at the beach. Mmm, the beach. Anyway. Frozen Daiquiri is from Color Club’s Ticket to Paradise collection. […] Continue reading →
Ok, let me just say, I ordered this polish assuming I would hate it. But I found the color to be so fascinating I just had to try it. Entirely irrational but so is my entire obsession with nail polish so I think we can let this slide. Maybe? Anyway. Je Ne Sais Quoi is […] Continue reading →
Oh hey, Color Club! It’s been awhile. And by awhile I mean since I wore Gift of Sparkle back in February…of 2013. Color Club for the most part just isn’t on my radar. It’s not readily available in my area and none of the collections excited me all that much. Until now! For fall 2014 […] Continue reading →
Okay! I did it…. remember last week when I said I might order another Color Club holo? Well… here she is: Cherubic. Cherubic is from the 2012 Halo Hues release. The 2012 polishes are a little softer and lighter than their bolder 2013 cousins. I am head over heels for holo polish lately. I spend […] Continue reading →
Sometimes I think nail polish companies enjoy confusing the consumer! Color Club released it’s winter 2013 Winter Affair collection with 2 polishes exclusive to Sally Beauty Supply. Ok, that’s fine. Except the Sally exclusive polishes have the same names as polishes in the original collection. Oh, and to make things even MORE confusing. The Sally […] Continue reading →
Oh goodness. I keep convincing myself that eventually I will find a polish from Color Club’s Rebel Debutante collection that I’ll actually like. High Society was my latest attempt and while I do quite like the color, the formula was a nightmare! High Society is a muddy light gray taupe creme that can pull just […] Continue reading →
Sigh. Every time I try a different polish from Color Club’s Spring 2010 Rebel Dubutante collection I become just a little bit more disappointed in the collection as a whole. Unfortunately I found myself, yet again, having to fight a traffic ticket. I have a speeding problem. Anyway, if I learned anything in law school […] Continue reading →
Are you ready for some football!? I’m sorry…I couldn’t help it! Both the college and pro football seasons are right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited. To celebrate the occasion it only seemed right to do a little nail art. To create this manicure I did the same DIY Velvet Manicure as I […] Continue reading →
