Happy Boxing Day! I personally don’t celebrate boxing day so please excuse my ignorance for all of you who do. Today I was trapped inside my house all day long. For all of you in the mid-west and north east, as well as y’all north of the border in Ontario, we get to ride out Winter Storm Euclid. I’m laughing as I type that because when the hell did we start naming our winter storms like hurricanes?! And the fact that we’ve been in a blizzard warning for over 18 hours now and the blizzard shares a name with the street around the corner from me just seems ironic. Now that Christmas is over and there is roughly 18 inches of snow on the ground, I’m starting to bust out all of my super dark shades. There is something about the shorter days, the persistent grey sky, the cold and the snow that makes me want to wear dark nails. So today, I’m showing you another polish that Zenorah sent me in our swap last year that never should have taken me so long to review!
Color Club “With Abandon” is an oldie for Color Club. It came out in the Wild at Heart collection in the fall of 2009 and I believe it is apart of their permanent line. With Abandon is a dark brown with copper flecks and totally unique from any other polish that I own. Its one of those polishes that is so dark that it looks black in almost every light except for sunlight. But even in the lowest light you can still see the copper flecks, which makes it seem to just glow.
The formula on this polish is really nice. The consistency was really nice and creamy, not to thick and not too watery. I also really like the brushes with Color Club polishes so it was a dream to apply. The dry time is alright and it was completely opaque in 2 coats. Overall, this is a really nice polish and if you’re looking for a great dark brown then this might be a great option!
