What’s On My Nails: Color Club Mamba

Color Club Mamba Nail Polish

I’m feeling very festive this week so I went for a nice bright red cream shade for my nail polish.  Color Club’s Mamba is a mini bottle I received in my February 2013 Birchbox.

Not much to say about this one.  It gave me opaque coverage in two thin coats.  Color Club nail polish goes on so smoothly too, I really love their formula.

Birchbox – February 2013

birchbox february 2013

It’s time for another Birchbox and I’m sad to say that I’m officially pulling the plug.  This in fact will be my last Birchbox post.  I haven’t been thrilled with the samples over the last few months so I’m making the decision to cancel.

I’ve lost the excitement that I used to have when I’d see the pink box in my mailbox.  And If I’m not excited enough about it anymore, it’s not worth me paying for unwanted samples that most often go unused.

So let’s take a look at what’s in my final February 2013 Birchbox:

What’s On My Nails – Color Club Glitter Wonderland

About a week ago I spotted some Color Club nail polish duos at Marshalls for only $3.99!  The shades in these duos were from the Winter Affair 2012 collection.  I picked up the set that contained a gorgeous purple shimmer shade and a flakie top coat.

Today I’m wearing Glitter Wonderland nail polish on my nails.  It’s a deep purple color with very fine glittery specks of blue and pink in it.  It’s a beautiful color that looks different depending on how the light’s hitting it and reflecting off the glittery shimmer.

What’s On My Nails – Color Club Blue-Ming and Nicole by OPI Rainbow In The S-Kylie

Color Club Blue-Ming

I loved the nail polish sample I received in July’s Glamour Birchbox so much that I wanted to use it right away.  Color Club Blue-Ming is a pastel turquoise cream color.  I’ve never tried Color Club polish before but it’s really good quality.  It was a nice consistency and very opaque in two coats.

To give it a little extra something, I added two coats of glitter polish to each ring finger.  I used the Nicole by OPI multi-colored glitter polish Rainbow In The S-Kylie.
