Color Club Berry And Bright

Berry and Bright was released by Color Club as part of its six-polish Winter Affair collection for holiday 2012. The collection was really great, beautiful unusual polishes with nice formulas, probably my favorite holiday collection ever. There were two versions of it, one that sold at Sally's and included two re-promoted colors, and one with six new polishes that sold everywhere else. Berry and Bright was part of both. It has a scented blue-based medium red jelly base packed with metallic flaky shimmers, dimensional, luminous and bold. It's the kind of polish that's guaranteed to make your nails look like a million bucks!

Application was great. The consistency of my bottle was fluid and smooth and laid down evenly over the nail. Pigmentation was also great -- Berry and Bright is for all practical purposes a one coater. The scent is very light, sweet and fruity with a touch of bayberry to it, and is just barely perceptible on the nail as a whiff of sweetness once the polish has dried. I did a less than stellar job with cleanup, but it was easy to do and left no staining. Berry and Bright dries in average time to a smooth satiny finish that wants a good topcoat to look its best.

Berry and Bright is what I call a gift wrap ribbon polish, a bright near metallic with a high shine. It also has that lovely, prized lit from within quality. The shimmers interact with the pinkish red base and give the polish subtle color shifts in sunlight, with the red giving way to flashes of blood orange or purple. Very unusual and really beautiful. The finish is very much like a glass fleck with fiery speckles of red and orange glowing from within the layers of base.

I can see this being fabulous for the holidays but it is pretty enough to wear anytime you want a manicure that will stand out. It's got a gregarious quality that can't help but attract attention!

love,
