EDIT: I contacted Angie and she said this secret package wasn't sent by her. And I was absolutely positive I saw her handwriting on the package... Who was it then? I don't have the envelope anymore, so I can't check. Darn. Come out, come out...whoever you are! =) Reveal yourself! And thank you! ***
I got 5 Color Club polishes and Orly Snowcone.
Snowcone has been on my wishlist from the moment I first saw it. And it is just as beautiful in real life as it is on photos.
Color Club's Gossip Column reminded me of another polish in my collection - American Apparel's Peacock. And look, they do look quite similar in bottles.
Here they are on my nails.
Gossip Column looks a ''micro shade'' lighter (yes, I just invented my own word) than Peacock. Other than the obvious color similarity: the application is great with both of them, coverage of Peacock is a bit better (I could apply only one slightly thicker coat), but I applied two coats of each anyway. I like the brush and handle of Gossip Column better, but Peacock, on the other hand, looks glossier to my untrained eye. I guess they're both equaly awesome.
I'd advise you to wear a base coat with these colors, 'cause they might stain your nails. Just as a precaution. =)
So, which one would you choose?
Thanks for looking!
