Color Club Charity Ball Stamped

This is one of the polishes I won in a giveaway hosted by Paillette! It's Color Club Charity Ball, three coats.

Sunlight (the sun came out after hiding for a week, yarr!):

I stamped with Revlon Copper Penny and plate m64, rotating the design for each finger as I went. Also, I scraped the plate for the pinkie using a metal scraper but with all the other fingers I used a plastic scraper. It made for a cleaner image. I'm mentioning this because usually a metal scraper usually works better for me. Odd.

Under the lamp:

Something I didn't notice until I was editing the pictures is how orange-brown Charity Ball leans on me than everyone else. Here's a link to Johanna's swatch, hers looks much redder. If I'm not mistaken, this is the exact bottle that she swatched with. Since that made me feel crazy, I took a picture of me holding something else orange-brown to show you (and I'm not trying to hide my pinkie, it's just hard holding a full bottle with four fingers)

Vaseline bottle photo courtesy of See? More orange-brown, not very much red. It's this color in real life as well. So bizarre.

Based on swatches I saw online, I didn't think I would like Charity Ball. It turns out I absolutely love it!  It's really perfect for fall. And it's not a color I would buy for myself so thank you


  1. Yes, colors look so different against each skin tone - this looks fabulous on you, and is one of my favorite colors!
