Today I am wearing Under the Mistletoe from the Color Club Wonderland mini kit. I am delighted with this polish! The formula is similar to last year's Glitter Vixen collection. Under the Mistletoe features light green and gold glitter in a sheer base. I am impressed that Color Club offered a peridot green instead of a more traditional emerald to help us get festive.
To achieve bottle color, I layered Under the Mistletoe over Sally Hansen X-Treme Wear in Ivy League. Layering is one of my favorite ways to wear Color Club glitter polishes. I try to match the color of the glitter with the base to create an opaque background. My apologies for not having a picture of Ivy League to share. It's a light green with gold shimmer very similar to Zoya Midori.
A faery aloft!
Inside Wonderland: clear topcoat, Wonderland (silver), Yule Love It (red), Under the Mistletoe (green).
I applied two coats of Under the Mistletoe over two coats of Ivy League. Under the Mistletoe was the perfect consistency for a glitter polish. It spread evenly and was able to be sealed with one layer of CND Air Dry with almost no texture remaining. I love that the formula is sheer. I will be able to use Under the Mistletoe for funky frenches or as a dramatic glitter topping over darker greens.
I am excited to try the other two glitter polishes in this collection. I do wish the topcoat had been swapped out with a pale blue glitter. I usually end up using mini size top coats exclusively for pedicures. Color Club produces my favorite mini bottles. The square shape feels substantial and the brushes are a decent size to work with comfortably.
The packaging is adorable. The font for Wonderland is stylish and creates the sense of icy air and a winter fantasy. The snowflakes on the bright red, green, pink and purple background make me think of decorative papers hanging on wooden slats at the local art store. Such attention was put forth to make this set gift worthy.
I am happy Color Club sent me the Wonderland mini set for review. Color Club is available for purchase at victorianailsupply.com. At the time of this post, VNS has the Wonderland kit in stock. They also have full size bottles of Under the Mistletoe with their limited edition Color Club glitter polishes.
Happy painting, ladies!
