Introducing Holographic gel from Color Club

Introducing Holographic gel from Color Club 0

I hope everyone has had a great week so far.

I am so beyond excited to introduce a revolutionary product from Color Club- Holographic Gel Polish.  No other brands in the US market have made a holographic gel polish, and I am so grateful Color Club has done so, and man is it perfection.

The Color Club Holographic's I have to share with you here include-

Harp On It: a holographic silver.

Eternal Beauty: a holographic purple.

Blue Heaven: a holographic icy blue.

(all swatches shown here are two coats, cured each for 30 seconds in an LED light, and are taken outdoors in natural sunlight).

With the introduction of their gel polish line, Color Club has done a few things differently.  All of their gel polishes are packaged in a duo pack, meaning you get both the gel polish color and its comparable nail lacquer, so for customers who want matching toes this is perfect! Also, Color Club paints the cap on the gel polish bottles, so not only do you know exactly what color is inside the bottle, but you can locate the color very easily, especially if you store it in a drawer. 

I am absolutely OBSESSED with these.  They are so beyond cool and very easy to use.  I was under the impression I would have to wait a little bit to let the gel polish settle before curing it in order to achieve a strong holographic effect, but that was not the case.  After painting it on, I was able to cure it essentially right away and still had an amazing holographic effect.  

I was very impressed with the quality.  The gel polish applied very smoothly and evenly, without any brush strokes, or any problems. 

The Color Club Holographic duo packs retail for $29.95 each, and contain 15 mL (0.5 fl oz) bottles of both the gel polish and nail lacquer. 

I highly recommend you give these a try! Your customers will go bananas for them! I promise 🙂

Color Club Fiber Optics set swatches

Color Club Fiber Optics set swatches 0

Hi Everyone.  Today I have the latest limited edition mini set from Color Club, "Fiber Optics" to share with you.  

According to their press release, the kit includes "4 unique glitters that'll make heads turn."

The set contains four 0.25 fl oz bottles.

The Fiber Optics set includes:

Neon Static: a mix of neon pink, blue, white, black, and yellow glitter bar particles in a clear base.

Watt's Up: shiny silver glitter bar particles in a clear base.

Electric Spark: gilded yellow gold glitter bar particles in a clear base.

Wired: black and white glitter bar particles in a clear base.

(all swatches shown here are two coats.) 

In general I did not think I was going to like this collection at all.  I have come across similar "bar glitter polishes" in the recent past, with different companies calling them things like "feathered nails" or "fuzzy coat", but I just ignored them.  

These however, despite their diminutive size, pack a punch.  They remind me of a Jackson Pollock painting.  

I was particularly surprised as to how densely packed they were with glitter.  I got excellent coverage with even a single coat, and with two coats, I achieved complete coverage.  

I feel there's a few different ways you can wear or use these polishes as well. You could paint the entire nail, you could do a funky take on a French manicure, or you could do an interesting gradation fade.  Nonetheless, the artistic freedom is totally up to you. 

 I also found the removal to be very easy, which is always a major plus with glitters.

I believe the Fiber Optics set will retail for around $12.95, and should be available soon for purchase on Color Club's website.

Color Club “Made in NY” Holiday 2014 Swatches

Color Club “Made in NY” Holiday 2014 Swatches 0

Hi Everyone.

Today I've got an exclusive first look at the latest collection from Color Club, "Made in NY" for Holiday 2014.  The collection is comprised of "4 shimmers and 3 cremes to twinkle and shine like the city that never sleeps," according to the press release.

The "Made in NY" collection includes:

Shimmers:

Lady Liberty: a pale icy blue/green iridescent shimmer in a clear base.  The polish looks very pale blue in the bottle, but on the nail it looks virtually clear.  Reminds me of an iridescent icicle.  

Million Dollar Listing: a shimmering ultra fine white pearlescent glitter in a clear base.

Bright Kights Big City: an ultra fine cotton candy pink glitter in a clear base.

Concrete Jungle: a pale purple/blue/pink glittery shimmer iridescence in a clear base.  This shade also looks like a pale icy blue in the bottle, but on the nail it translates to almost an iridescent pearly white shimmer.

In general, I am not a huge fan of the shimmers.  They were not build able and you could see visible nail line.  I personally would only recommend using them as a top coat over another color to add dimension.  On the bright side, they did remove easily.  Concrete Jungle was the only one I particularly cared for. 

Cremes:

Off Duty: a coppery rusted bronze.

Apple of my Eve: a deep jeweled magenta wine.

Night at the Met: a strong shimmering medium blue with grey undertones.

(all swatches shown here are two coats.)

Overall I think this was an okay collection.  I definitely prefer the cremes over the shimmers.  Like I mentioned earlier I wouldn't use or recommend the shimmers on their own.  I would only suggest one use them as a top coat over another solid color.  As far as consistency and application is concerned I didn't experience any issues.  

The "Made in NY" collection from Color Club will be available soon.

Color Club Seven Deadly Sins- Fall 2014 Swatches

Color Club Seven Deadly Sins- Fall 2014 Swatches 0

Good afternoon all.  I hope everyone had a great start to their week!

Today I've got the Fall 2014 collection from Color Club to share with you all, "Seven Deadly Sins."  According to the press release, "7 matte, textured glitters. Each of the deep, sexy hues was created to bring out the bad girl in all of us. Being sinful never felt so glamorous"

The Seven Deadly Sins collection includes:

Friends with Benefits: a light lavender with silver undertones.

Fierce: a scintillating medium toned purple with brown cafe undertones.

Obsessed: a midnight peacock teal.

Under Your Spell: a purple glitter with flashes of green and gold shimmer depending on the light's reflection.

Indulge Me: a coppery bronze.

Dirty Money: a light blonde yellow gold.

You're So Vain: a multi-faceted deep dark purple.

(each swatch shown here was two coats for full opacity, with NO base or top coat.)

Overall I was very impressed with the collection.  What I love Most about matte textured glitter polishes is that they do not require a base or top coat.  Not only does that save product being used, but more importantly it saves a tremendous amount of time.  I found each of the polishes removed very easily, which is usually a major struggle removing glitter.  The polishes all dried incredibly fast, which is always a huge Plus in my book.  And I found each of the colors to be highly saturated in pigment.  With two coats I got complete coverage.      

My personal favorite from this collection include: You're so Vain, Under Your Spell, and Obsessed.

 The Seven Deadly Sins polishes retail for $8.50 each.
