Color Club – Uptown Girl NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 19 - 2010

My first Color Club polish!

Color Club are a cheapie US brand that don’t seem to be afraid to manufacture some truly fashion forward shades!  I picked Uptown Girl from the Spring 2010 collection ‘cos I’m a sucker for purples… and even more of a sucker for dusty purples!

The brush is neatly cut, but one of those older fashioned small round shaped ones that take 5748957894 strokes to cover your nail.  If I ruled the world… all nail brushes would be flat and wide.  Because of the brush it did mean that I had to be careful of streaking… 3 thin layers of polish ensured a smooth, even finish.

I’ll definitely be heading back to eBay to pick up some more Color Club shades, but there’s so many to choose from – I’m a little bit overwhelmed!

Do you have any CC favourites?

    I LOVE Colour Club! Their polishes seem to apply opaque and have an incredibly smooth and thin texture that dries quickly. Cheapie but a goodie.

    I like Revvvolution by CC, it’s a charcoal with major holo shimmer that’s quite large but not gritty at all. The shimmer reflects a neon green rainbow.

    I love CC :) only got a handful but definitely want a whole lot more, they have so much variety especially for a cheapy brand. Like Kristen said, Revvvolution and Wild at Heart are lovely but I don’t know how much you like holos!

    I LOVE Color Club!! Their polishes are cheap and the quality is fantastic! Gossip Column is my favorite, it’s a deep teal creme.

    Very, very nice! I’ve never heard of this brand, but I’ll have a look as I’ve recently had a clear-out of old polishes and I’m missing many many colours now!!
