Color Club Beyond The Mistletoe swatches

Good evening! Is anyone else watching the Real Housewives of NJ reunion? OMG. It's insane and I think it's the best episode of the season! LOL. Tonight I have 5 of the 6 Color Club Beyond The Mistletoe collection, which may just be the best winter collection to come out this year. I picked these up at 8ty8 Beauty on Saturday and couldn't wait to swatch them. I actually sat in the parking lot staring at these babies for a few minutes, they are that amazing. I'm missing Gingerbread, it wasn't on the racks but I'm going back in 2 weeks anyway so I plan on picking it up then.

All of the photos shown here are 2 coats without base/top coats. They are all pretty opaque. The formulas were easy to work with as far as glitters go and dry time was good. I took photos in different lighting to show the holographic effects as best as possible. As mentioned before in other posts, my camera hates holos :(

Sugarplum Fairy

Sugarplum Fairy has lilac and holographic glitter in a clear base. This is one of the most holographic in the collection. It's truly gorgeous.

Candy Cane

Candy Cane has red, pink and silver glitter in a clear base. This one holographic but it really is pretty. It definitely reminds me of Candy Canes and it's so girly.

Holiday Splendor

Holiday Splendor is holographic glitter in a teal base. This is the only polish from the collection that's not in clear base. This really surprised me, it's so beautiful. It's similar to Untamed Luxury and reminds me of China Glaze Atlantis (which happens to be my all time favorite polish).

Jingle Jangle

Jingle Jangle is blue, lilac/pink, and light green (possibly blue?) in a clear base. Another stunner. Like Candy Cane, this polish is not holographic.

Beyond The Mistletoe

Beyond The Mistletoe is light blue and holographic glitter in a clear base. This is the most holographic of the bunch (with Sugarplum Fairy coming in a close second).

If you have a chance to pick up a this collection, don't pass it up. Seriously. I know from blogs and MUA that a lot of people get the sets at Ross for $7.99 but I would definitely pay full price for these again. I know these are a holiday collection, but I would wear them 365 days a year. They are G-R-E-A-T!

What do you guys think of these? Will you be picking them up?


  1. I'm loooving this collection! nice swatches :)

  2. I love this collection! :D And omgosh you got that blue-green/greenish glitter to show up in your pic of Jingle Jangle! I was going crazy squinting my eyes staring at it wondering if it was really there of if I was just seeing things, lol! XD Lovely glittery pics!

  3. Thank you!

    I still can't tell if that glitter is light blue or green, its TINY! lol
