Color Club – The Uptown

The Uptown by Color Club is another polish that was on my wish list for a long time. Thanks so much @ Gimme All The Polish for adding this one to out massive nail swap. color club - the uptownI layered one easy coat of the Uptown over my favorite black polish (Liquid Leather by China Glaze). This is absolutely stunning! color club - the uptown1And just because I need to mattify all flakies: color club - the uptown matteAwesome, ha!color club - the uptown matte1

I just LOVE this collection. Mostly because all of the shades look gorgeous in natural lightning too. Especially Over the moon and Eternal beauty. And I really love how charcoal Beyond is in daylight. These aren’t just your ‘regular’ shades of holo’s, these are darker and therefore stunning. The formula is fantastic. I used two coats for the swatches without base- and topcoat. I’ve read that topcoat doesn’t ruin the holo effect though! That’s a big plus because that way the wearing time is way longer. As with all holo’s, if you don’t use topcoat you’re gonna have tipwear in no time. So if you are a fan of holographic polish, these are really meant for you! Besides the fact that they are more expensive than regular Color Club polishes (double priced!), I have nothing to complain about this collection. I bought this collection on Ebay (here) for $6.95 each.

What do you think of this collection? Any favorites?

Color Club – Halo Hues 2012

There’s something that caught my attention around the web lately. I’ve read that Color Club has released their Halo Hues 2013 Collection. Since I absolutely love everything holo I knew I need to have that collection. But hey, Color Club also has a Halo Hues 2012 collection. What’s a 2013 collection without the one that was released last year? 😀 Right? So, here’s their Halo Hues 2012 collection:color club halo hues 2012Warning: this post is picture heavy 😀

All swatches have two coats without base- and top coat. Every first picture is taken under artificial lightning and the second ones are taken in daylight.

I think this collection isn’t very unique though. So here’s a comparison with the holo’s by Nfu Oh. Since this post is already picture heavy I kept this comparison simple 😉
Let’s see if there are any dupes:color club vs nfu oh
