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 exclusive polishes are scented. What?
This version of Gift of Sparkle is the Sally Beauty Supply version. It is a lovely deep blue shimmery metallic. It’s like a more subdued version of OPI Swimsuit….Nailed It!. I love it!
The formula is fantastic. I used just 2 coats in my swatches.
As far as the scent goes…I can’t quite put my finger on it. It smells just kind of sweet. It didn’t bother me but I’m not quite sure there’s a point to this polish being scented.
Anyway. After wearing this a day or two I (again) was dying to use Revlon Celestial FX. I topped Gift of Sparkle with 1 coat of Celestial FX and manually placed the diamond glitter on each nail. The boy dubbed the result as my “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” manicure. He’s just so clever (insert eye roll here).
There is a picture of my diamonds manicure along with additional swatches of Gift of Sparkle below the jump!

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 →
Unless you’ve been living under the proverbial fashion rock then you are well aware that the Pantone color of the year is Tangerine Tango. Tangerine is literally EVERYWHERE. It was my number 1 must have polish color for Summer 2012 and it’s still going strong! Tangerine Scream is from Color Club’s Summer 2009 Electro Candy collection, […] Continue reading →
If you saw my tweet yesterday surely you realized something must be amiss. Me? Playing around with neons? Well, a few days ago Alli sent me this picture of Duccio Venturi’s Neon Pumps. I decided to use it as some nailspiration and break out my Electrocandy and Poptastic Color Club collections that I purchased from […] Continue reading →
I’m going to say it one more time in case you missed me blabbing out it on Twitter and Facebook and over on The Daily Varnish Extra…..Rite Aid now has Color Club! I don’t know when that happened but Color Club displays seem to be popping up in Rite Aid’s all over the country. The […] Continue reading →
Today the nail blogging community really united against the ridiculousness of Ciate – it’s probably been one of the most entertaining and hilarious days I’ve seen since we started The Daily Varnish almost 2 and a half years ago. I’m sure by now that you’re all aware that Ciate has contacted some bloggers over their […] Continue reading →
Oh my. Sometimes I don’t know what I’m thinking when choosing polish colors. I used this polish as part of my Easter egg manicure and at the time, didn’t think it was so bad. After wearing this polish on all 10 nails I am singing a different tune. She’s sooo Glam is from Color Club’s […] Continue reading →
Alli & I are both HUGE college basketball fans… though we’re quite divided. She’s a UNC fan and I’m a Duke fan. Since Duke is out, I’m obviously cheering for the home team (Richmond, VA) – VCU and well their colors are… you got it – Black & Yellow (or Gold…) When I painted my […] Continue reading →
