Christmas Glitter + Christmas present for myself :D



Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! I found the perfect Christmas glitter a few days ago... unfortunately the bottle is unlabeled... if you can identify the polish please let me know!

This is a clear base with red, green, and white hex glitter. The red glitters ended up looking orange the way the light hits. This is pretty densely packed with glitter... I had to make sure I wiped off half the brush first or I would end up with a clump of glitter. Base color is Essie Mojito Madness (2 coats).

I went to Winners (discount store) to try to buy some last minute Christmas presents and ended up with this crazy haul as a Christmas present to myself instead LOL

I always check Winners for Color Club sets and found these sets which look like Color Club but aren't... I'm not sure what's up with these sets... the bottle is shaped like Color Club, it says Color Club on the sides of the plastic box... But it says Cosmetic Arts on the bottles even though the shape is completely different from the Cosmetic Arts bottles...? Both brands are under Forsythe Cosmetics Group so maybe they just had some old design Color Club bottles and extra polish they wanted to get rid of? All the shades are unlabeled too which is pretty annoying. 

But each set was only $10 Canadian (about $7-8 USD) which is a great deal for 7 full size bottles of polish! I was also glad to see that all 7 bottles are polish now instead of 6 polishes + 1 top coat. And then I got home and noticed that I got the same silver in 3 of the packs... and I think I have the exact same silver from Color Club already... blah! The polishes seem to have the same great formula that I've come to expect from Color Club so I can't complain too much though!




Hope everyone enjoys some time off for the holidays! Do you spoil yourself at Christmas too?

  1. That glitter is so festive and very Christmasy. Hopefully someone can help you out to identify the name of it. What a deal you got with those nail polish sets! $10 for 7 polishes is a total score too. Happy holidays to you as well! :)

  4. I've seen Cosmetic Arts at Meijer, but not this glitter. It is a separate brand under the Forsythe umbrella, not just one of those odd brands that only shows up in gift sets for the holidays.

    Speaking of holidays, Merry Christmas!
