Color Club: 2012 Winter Affair Collection Review & Swatches

Hey beauties!

Here's the first of a few scheduled posts I have lined up. Enjoy! 

Looks like Winter's arrived a little earlier than expected here at the Deuce Beauties headquarters. By that I mean, the release of Color Club's new Winter Affair Collection! Feast your eyes on the Limited Edition, six piece set. :)

First up, Ho Ho Holly. It's a mermaid green foil packed with golden shimmers. This was hands down my favorite from this collection. Application was smooth and required two coats for opacity. It also dried rather quickly.

Next up, Berry and Bright. It's a bright, red shimmer. I could not capture the color for the life of me! It's so much more intensely rich in person. Formula was good and required two coats for opacity. Definitely Holiday appropriate! ;)

Winter Affair, the namesake of the collection, is a vampy, wine packed with violet and burnt orange flecks/shimmers. This was my third favorite from the collection and is my current mani! The image below required two coats for opacity. 

Gift of Sparkle is a murky, purple glitter bomb! It's definitely stunner in the bottle and on the nails. Application was good, but required three coats for opacity; however, dry time was rather quick between each coat. This dries to a semi matte, gritty finish, so I definitely recommend a good, thick top coat. 

Glitter Wonderland is a vivid, purple shimmer packed with violet, pink, and blue glitters. I tend to stray away from these colors making this my least favorite from the collection. I will give it this-- easy application and required two generous coats for opacity. 

Lastly, Snow-Flakes. Your typical red/orange/green/yellow flakie topper. Nothing special, but I love how dense the outcome is after one coat! Formula was perfect because we all know that no one likes a thick, flakie polish! ;)

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this collection. I feel that the collection as a whole is perfect for transitioning into Winter. The formula on these were superb, requiring a maximum of two coats for complete opacity. 

This Limited Edition collection is now available and can be purchased from

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

Will you be picking up any of these colors? What are your thoughts?! I'd love to know down below!

  1. I love them all, but I think I'll give the flakie a miss since it looks like some I've already got :)
