Happy first day of Spring everyone! The sun is shining, and I’m soaking in all of the daylight, by taking a 2 hour nap this morning after I got back from an 8am dentist appointment. Listen, I may be 26 but I’m not full adult yet, and I won’t apologize alright. But I can still enjoy this sunlight and warmer temperatures while I’m inside blogging. Talking about nail polish is great for every season.
I’ve mentioned it in all of my other reviews as well, but Color Club is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands, and I’m just slowly transforming this blog into a Color Club fan page if that’s alright with you. I just consistently love their collections, and they’re always dropping creative themed color stories! Overall, it’s just always fun and I’m always looking out for what they’re releasing next.
I grabbed this set off of their website during a 50% off sale! As I always say, they’re always running sales, so definitely follow their Instagram, or their email newsletter to be notified of the next deal! Otherwise, they retail for $8.50 each.
Today’s collection that we’re looking at is the Parisian Garden collection! I believe this is technically their Spring 2021 release, but Color Club releases so many collections throughout the year so they’re not always on the “traditional” seasonal schedule like other brands. But this collection is definitely very fitting for spring. It’s an 8 piece collection, with some light, almost pastel tones, and richer greens and blues. Super fun, and let’s just get right into the swatches!
If you scroll back through my feed of blog posts, you’ll see a sudden uptick of posts all about Color Club starting in the summer. I can’t explain it, but they’ve fully taken over my heart this year (and my wallet). I just can’t resist, as they’re always coming out with new and interesting collections and finishes! I love their curated themes, and there’s a color story out there for everyone!
This time we’re looking at the ‘Golden State’ collection. This is their traditional 6 bottle release of shades of metallics, spanning from a copper, various shades of gold, and silvers. It definitely intrigued me as a nice little curated release, so during a sale I snatched it up to try out. (As I always say, follow their Instagram or email newsletter, as they’re always posting about sales, and you don’t often have to wait too long for 40-50%).
They retail for $8.50 otherwise if you pick them up full price, on the Color Club website. They are closed for the holidays through the 4th of January, so orders will ship out after that time – keep that in mind if you order during this holiday period!
Y’all have heard me sing the praises of Color Club a lot recently, especially this past year. I’ve just fallen in love with them, and I think they’re highly underrated! They definitely release a lot of collections in a year, so I understand it can feel a little overwhelming, but I’ve been enjoying the different themes and finishes they’ve been coming out with. And of course, I’m here to post reviews to help make any decisions easier! Their collections are never limited edition, and are always available on their website after releasing, so you never need to hurry and rush and grab a polish before it’s gone.
Now, I don’t like to pay full price for polish when I don’t have to (that definitely helps me buy so many), and I always say for Color Club you rarely have to do that. Follow their Instagram page, or sign up for their email list – they have so many sales throughout the year, you won’t ever have to wait too long for a 40%-50% sale to grab up some new polishes. (And as mentioned, their shades won’t disappear, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on them while waiting for a sale).
So in my last purchase during a sale, I grabbed 2 of their newest collections! Today we’re looking at the ‘Halo Jewels’ collection. This is 6 shades of more jewel-toned linear holographic shades. I mean, they’re so beautiful, I knew I wanted them as soon as they posted pictures of them.
These shades retail for $12 each on the Color Club website, more than their normal price of $8.50 since they are holographic polishes. I picked these up during a 50% off sale, so I paid $6 each. I also highly recommend signing up for the rewards on their website! You get points for each purchase, and can earn $5 and $10 rewards pretty easily. We love deals around here.
Alright enough about savings, let’s get into the swatches!
ALRIGHT, I’ve had coffee; I’m set up in the middle of my floor; it’s a dreary, rainy day; I’ve got a fall candle burning; I’ve got my big headphones on playing some upbeat music, IT’S TIME TO WRITE SOME BLOG POSTS.
The temperatures have finally settled over here, and it’s my favorite time of the year, and I just love it. Holiday collections may already be releasing (I know, a crazy thing to think about) but we still have plenty of fall shades to look at!
So today’s post features a selection of more traditional “fall” cream shades. It’s the ‘Social Status’ collection from a brand that’s slowly becoming one of my favorites, Color Club. They don’t release collections on a typical seasonal schedule, aka 4 collections a year. Rather they release a few at a time every couple of months, so there’s always so many new shades to choose from.
I grabbed these from the Color Club website. I always highly recommend following them on their Instagram, or signing up for their email list as they’ll notify you when they’re having sales! I grabbed these on a 50% off sale, which happens pretty frequently, and I’m here to help you all save money while simultaneously showing you some beautiful polish. You can also sign up for their rewards, which gives you points anytime you buy polish and adds up to money off of purchases!
Honestly I’ve really gotten in Color Club this past year, and that’s DANGEROUS for my wallet. I’ve realized they’re really underrated, and they’re constantly posting such fun collections and color stories. My collection of their polishes has grown EXPONENTIALLY this year, and I’m not mad about it.
And when they released this one, there was just something about this collection that snagged my attention. Did I need any of these shades? No. But you can say that about any polish and all that matter is that I WANTED them, okay.
This is the Fresh Picked collection, and it features 6 shades with some sort of peachy/orange undertones. I loved the theme and the whole color story with this collection, they went together so well, and I think they nailed it. I hope we get more curated, almost monochromatic collections like this!
I purchased this from the Color Club website. (One thing that helps build up a stash of their polishes is that they’re always doing sales, I got these for half off! So I say always wait for a sale! Follow them on Instagram or sign up for their emails).
Whew, it’s been a little bit since I’ve put up a post! If you didn’t see in my last one, my computer had some keyboard issues, so there were extra spaces all over the place, and it was just a pain to type up posts! But it’s all fixed up, I have a lot of swatches and posts to get up, so August will be full of reviews! I don’t want to ramble too much, so let’s get right into it!
Color Club recently has had a lot of sales, including a BOGO, on their website, so I chose that time to stock up on some neons, as well as some of their newer collections. (Color Club likes to release like 9 collections at once, so I didn’t grab them all). But they have some beautiful shades, and I think they’re truly underrated! So you’re about to get a whole lot of Color Club action.
This first collection we’ll be looking at today is the Pride & Joy collection! I believe it was released for Pride month, but of course, we accept LGBTQIA+ all months of the year, and these are just beautiful colors for anytime of the year (or the warmer months if you’re feeling more seasonal). It has 6 cream shades, some with shimmer throughout them as well.
These retail for $8.50 each on the Color Club website, but as mentioned they have a ton of sales, so I don’t think I’ve ever grabbed them at full price! Be sure to follow their Instagram or mailing list to be notified of different sales!
Whew! It’s been a while! Well, a while to me. Maybe you haven’t noticed, maybe you don’t care. But it’s been a WHILE. Couple quick life updates because as always, this is my blog and I can talk about what I want. (I promise we’ll get into the polish).
ANYWAYS. Firstly, I was wrapped up in a project! My old boss puts on art shows once a year, and he messaged me saying to submit a piece! (I graduated with a degree in design and am in the art field for my real job). As I haven’t at all changed, I procrastinated and then my whole weekend before this past one was a full one of just madly finishing a piece and getting it sent out. And it was sent out early because I had a family wedding this weekend in Tennessee! It ended up being so much fun and I was so glad to see family members that I hadn’t seen in so long. All good things all around, but of course, all things that took up my time! Now I’m back and getting my shit together and getting back on schedule.
And that schedule includes lots of polish to talk about and lots of reviews on their way!
Now this lovely collection, I posted about it quite a while ago – and then life got in the way, see above – and these beautiful swatches were just sitting and waiting for me in all their beauty. It’s finally time to get them on out.
This is the Color Club Matte-ified Metallics collection, and as you can tell, it contains 6 shades of matte metallic finishes. I grabbed these from the Color Club website when they were 50% off. They’re $8.50 each normally, but Color Club is always having sales, so definitely watch their Instagram, and you can always grab the polishes for at least 30% off pretty regularly.
Let’s get on into the swatches and let them talk for themselves! Also, can we talk about those frosted bottles? You wanna sell me something, put it in a frosted bottle. *drools*
