Now, you would have believed me to try the green one out first, right? Wrong! I decided on another favourite as of late, with these:
Snowflakes and Wish List Red. And you know what I'm into right now..? Right? Sure you do.
Glitter gradient! This time with one glitter on op of another. Oooooooh la la.
Snowflakes is a cute mix of varied sized glitters. A little gold, a little iridescent, a little bit of everything, but crispy cute.
And just because I can:
I made this one just like the prior. Just dragging the glitter out from a french line, towards the cuticle. It usually evens out just perfectly once you add a thick topcoat.
However, when I first started examine the bottles in person, I immediately believed Wish List Red might be a re-promote of Ruby Slippers, which is now in the core line, but also appeared in a previous holiday set. I dragged my bottle out and painted one coat each on a wheel. Take a look.
Wish List red to the left and to the right Ruby Slippers. Click to enlarge. They have the same glitter, and the only difference really is the density of the polishes. I have examined these closely to try to figure out if the visible differences are because I painted one thicker than the other, but I believe I did them basically the same. Built up to opacity, Wish List Red may be a tad cooler, but it's not really noticable.
Still. Do we really care? The Color Club sets are cute and cheap. We can afford a dupe or two.

I hope they stay away a little longer...
