Now Color Club is new to me. I’d never heard of this brand before about February this year when I discovered the lacquerhead blog world. Essentially all the blogs I read had good things to say about Color Club formula-wise and so I naturally started a wee wish-list for myself.
For me, living in Australia, Color Club is really rather cheap, even with the cost of postage to here from the US. I can buy these polishes for about AUD$6 each including postage from Trans Design if I buy about seven at a time, otherwise there is a seller on eBay that sells them for between USD$2.50-$3.00 with postage to Australia of USD$4.450 for the first polish and $2.50 each bottle thereafter. The AUD is basically on par with the USD at the moment so it makes buying polish from the US really rather affordable compared to the retail prices we pay for polish here is Australia.
So, having discovered this particular eBay seller, I recently decided to do a big order and, bar a handful of colours that the seller didn’t have in stock at the time, I’ve fulfilled my wish-list of Color Clubs.
Amongst that wish-list was Revvvolution and Wild at Heart, being two of five holographic polishes that Color Club bought out sometime ago. Of course, for completeness I had to get the remaining holographic polishes didn’t I? Unfortunately Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em was one of the few this seller didn’t stock so I only ended up getting four of the five but I thought I’d show those four here today.
First off is Revvvolution, a charcoal holo. I gather that this one is a very popular Color Club polish. It’s not the strongest holo but has a lovely sheen.
Next is Fashion Addict, a pale pink holo.
Next is Worth the Risque, a silver holo.
And last of all, Wild at Heart.
Wild at Heart is my pick, followed by Revvvolution. I guess I tend to have a thing for darker colours and especially purples. The one I don’t have – Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em is a beige or pale coffee coloured holo. I’ve got a few silver holos and one other pale pink holo, all of which have a stronger holographic appearance than these Color Club ones. Notwithstanding that the holographic effect in these isn’t stong, I still love Wild at Heart and Revvvolution.
Formula-wise, these applied really well. Worth the Risque and Fashion Addict were sheerer than the other two and really could have done with three coats, particularly Worth the Risque. But these pics are two coats for all of the polishes and you can see a wee bald spot on my ring fingernail with Worth the Risque. Drying time was also really good.
I’m really pleased with the quality of these polishes, given that they are relatively inexpensive and that I’ve bought over 40 Color Club polishes. I’m looking forward to trying more of them:)
Have you tried any of these polishes? What do you think of Color Clubs generally?
