A short summary of the Winter Affair Collection:
Colours: A good variety of colours. All pretty dark and vampy but I think that's suitable for a winter/holiday collection. Most christmassy is Ho-Ho-Holy and Berry and Bright.
Opacity: Very good actually. All polishes are two coats. With Winter Affair and Berry and Bright you can get away with one coat :)
Drying time: All normal except for Gift of Sparkle which was a bit on the slow side.
Formula: Very varied. Some thin, some excellent some thick. Berry and Bright had the best formula.
Brush: Also very varied. Some thick, some thin. Best brush goes to Berry and Bright :)
Shine: All very shiny without a top coat except for Gift of Sparkle that dried a bit matte.
I really enjoyed trying this collection! It's a really unique and sparkly and glowing collection!
My only concern was that the effect fleck polish just made the other (otherwise gorgeous) polishes look bad... I wish they could have made a sixth shimmer polish instead... maybe gold or silver...? :)
Which one is your favourite polish from this collection?
Will you get some or will you just be window shopping on these ones? ;)
