WHOOPS, long time no post! Definitely didn’t mean to “abandon” the blog, but here we are again, and let’s catch up on some posts, shall we? No matter what I’m always posting on my Instagram regularly, so I recommend that if you want to keep up with posts and see swatches right away. And obviously, I know these have already been up on Instagram for a while, but I do still like to get them up on the blog no matter how long it’s been. I know it’s helpful to others, and since these aren’t limited edition, they can be a resource for a long while! And it can be easier to find than sifting through my Instagram. OKAY.
Alright, let’s just get right into it since it’s been long enough, shall we!
Of course, we have some more Color Club to talk about! If you’ve been around this blog for any length of time, you’ll know I absolutely love Color Club, and I basically automatically buy whatever they come out, okay. They drop a lot of collections, so I like to imagine I’m your guide, taking your hand through all of the Color Club releases.
The release we’re talking about today is the ‘Juice Boost’ collection. It’s a collection of 6 bright, saturated colorful cream shades, perfect for summer. And as I always say, Color Club does a lot of sales giving anywhere from 30-50% off, so be sure to follow their Instagram or sign up for their mailing list to get notified of these. It was during a sale that I grabbed these bad boys, and we always love deals.
So let’s get right into the swatches!
As always, we’re going in rainbow order, so let’s start with the red!
‘Berry Beautiful’ is a bright, cool-toned strawberry red cream. This almost has some jelly-ness to it, so it’s a little more squishy on the nails. Because of that it’s a little more sheer on the 1st coat, with some nail line peeking through. It builds up and is fully opaque in 2 easy coats.
As always, I have live swatches on my Instagram, so feel free to click the links to see the formula in action!
Next up we have the 1st of our two oranges. This is ‘One in a Melon’ and it’s more cool-toned and leans more peachy-coral. I absolutely love these tones of oranges so much.
This was a thicker formula, so it’s easy to control on the nails if you choose to do thicker coats. I did have a streaky 1st coat, and it pretty well builds up in 2 coat. Depending on your nails and application, you might want to throw on a 3rd to cover any last patches.
The other orange is ‘Mean Tangerine’. This one is lighter and a more yellow-toned cream. Truly a bright little tangerine.
This had a somewhat streaky 1st coat, but it easily covers and is fully opaque with a 2nd coat. A super smooth and lovely formula! And another gorgeous orange – I’ve truly fallen in love with oranges over these years!
And well of course, I’m always here for a bright lime green shade, so I was excited to get this onto my nails.
This is ‘Meet Your Matcha’, and it’s a bright, basically neon, yellow-leaning green cream shade. This had a more sheer 1st coat, and I still had a touch of that sheer-ness and nail line peeking through after a 2nd, so I ended up doing 3 coats for it. But that color is just stunning!
Now we have one of those teal shades that just annoy my camera to no end.
This is ‘Whey to Go’, and it’s a bright, teal-toned blue shade. Idk why these shades are the absolute bane of my camera’s existence, but they never photograph quite right, and I tried to color correct as best as I could. Overall I wanted to make sure it showed that there’s definitely teal there, and it’s not a straight up blue. In real life it’s even brighter and more saturated as well, so this is to give an idea of the base color!
This had a wonderful formula as well, and was almost opaque in just 1 coat. 2 easy and smooth coats here for the photo!
And it’s harder to color correct videos – so in this live swatch it pulls way more blue. This is just to show the formula in action. Whey to Go Live Swatch
And last but certainly not least, we have ‘Up Beet’. And come on, of course I immediately think of the Office with any mention of beets okay.
ANYWAYS, this is a bright fuchsia pink cream shade. Another gorgeous formula here, another that was almost opaque in just 1 coat. 2 easy coats here for the photo.
And that’s the collection! I loved the grouping of bright and fun summery shades, and all of these are so fun for warmer weather. ‘Meet Your Matcha’ was the only shade that was a little more sheer and required 3 coats for sure. Otherwise, there were some almost one coaters with the deeper shades. Overall, I do love Color Club’s brights formulas, and these were no exceptions!
