Color Club Snow-flakes - swatches and review

After my prevoius Color Club Winter-Affair-o-rama ;) I guess you're probably tired of swatches of polishes from this collection, but I thought Snow-flakes deserved a post of its own too :) So here is a short summary and review of it!
Gelic', this one is for you! ;)

Type of polish: Flakes.

Colour: Lots and lots of flakes in a clear base. The flakes go from yellow, to orange, to red and to green depending on the light

Collection: Color Club Winter Affair Holiday Collection 2012.

Possible dupe: Nubar 2010 (and probably a bunch of others...!)
Drying time: A bit faster than normal.

Formula: Quite thick, but still easy to work with. The flakes spread out evenly on the nails without any effort.

Brush: Nice, thick and firm! No complaints! ;)

Shine: Shiny on its own. No top coat on these pictures. This is after all a top coat... ;)

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: This polish changes a lot depending on the light. In other lighing than mine it could look very different. You'll have to experiment with it ;)

: 3/5 :)

I'm not that big of a fan of flake polishes but I still wanted to try this one.
Some of the combinations did turn out quite nice, but over all I have to say that the polishes looked better without Snow-flakes...
But over a black creme or another really dark creme polish I think it could look quite nice actually.

Which combination of the above do you like best?
Do you like flake polishes?


  1. mmm, they're all pretty, but I prefer winter affair and gift of sparkle.

  2. I agree! :) I was actually surprised that Snow-flakes looked so good over Gift of Sparkle since that is a holo glitter polish?! But it did!! :D
    Take care! xoxo

  3. OOOH! Jag gillade det bäst med glitter wonderland och winter affair bäst. Tror det är som du säger bäst med tex svart eller mörka lacker. :) Har två paket på posten nu som jag ska hämta ut, kanske finns det där... fast det är nog lite för tidigt iofs.. :D

    1. Åh! Två paket!! Niiiiice! :D
      Du får visa sen om det är nagellacksrelaterat! ;)
      Hoppas du kommer gilla Snow-flakes sen när du får det... Kommer känna mig skyldig om du hatar det... :/

  4. Vad jag ångrar att jag inte klickade hem det här lacket... Suck :( Måste leta reda på det nu dock!
    Kom till mamma! Komsi komsi..!

    1. Hahaha! :D
      Jag har redan Nubar 2010 som är lika detta så om du vill göra ett byte är jag öppen för förslag...
      Maila mig privat isf! :D

    2. Ja, ett byte! Lägg upp den i Lacka - Byt så kan vi snacka på FB? :)

    3. Hm... jag mailar dej direkt istället :) För tänk om nån annan ser bilden förre mej = katastrof! ;)

  5. I love flakes but I've got a similar one from Nfu-Oh. It's very pretty though

    1. Many brands has got flakes now! :)
      I've got Nubar 2010 which is very similar to Snow-flakes.
