Color Club ‘Pride & Joy’ Collection – Swatches & Review

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!

Let’s get into swatches already.

Sinful Colors Pride Collection 2019

Happy Pride month everyone! Pride Fest is this weekend in Chicago! I live right next to Boystown as well, and I went over to the festival with friends yesterday and had a blast. There were people everywhere, tons of entertainment and food, and a lovely space for everyone to just have fun and be themselves. Loved it! The Pride parade is next weekend as well – Chicago’s is always a huge event, but unfortunately I’ll be out of town visiting friends. I hope I can see it next year, and hope it’s an amazing day for everyone and the community! Are you going to any Pride events this month?

And with that, I have the Sinful Colors Pride 2019 collection to talk about today!

This collection makes me a little sentimental. I purchased one of the Sinful Colors Pride collections way back in the day (like 2017) – the one of all creams. And it was one of the first collections I reviewed on this blog! It was even before I did full nail swatches – I just showed the shades over my swatch wheel in natural daylight coming in through the window! I had barely figured out focus, lighting or blogging, but I just wanted to talk about polish. I thought the post was still up to link to it, but I can’t find it unfortunately, I must have taken it down. But I remember typing it on up! Crazy how much has changed in the 2 years of the blog (and my life) since then – my nails, lighting and posting have all gotten better!

There has been released at least one other Pride collection in between this, with similar sparkly shades in different colors, but I wasn’t at a point where I was buying as much polish then. So this is my first Pride collection from Sinful in a while, and I’m so glad to have another! They’re always so fun. They’ve also been posting work in collaboration with different LGBTQIA+ on their Instagram to celebrate! Happy Pride!

Now for the collection. As always, it’s a 6 piece collection. It features a rainbow of glittery shades, and they all have a #Pride sticker on their caps. These have been available since before June, and I’ve read that it’s a permanent collection you’ll be able to purchase long after Pride month. I got these off of Amazon. They’re currently $16 for all 6 shades + a highlighter (which I’ll talk about before the shades). I have not seen these available for purchase individually, and haven’t heard of them being available in stores – but Walmart has had other collections so it’s possible they’ll show up there.
