Hi guys! Today I'm going to show you some Color Club swatches!
Ah, Color Club. One of my faves.
I just love the 7-piece sets. I want them all!
Today I'm going to show you half of the Back To Boho collection.
My mom bought me this set at Ross in Las Vegas for $7.99! 7 polishes for $7.99!
That is $6 cheaper than what I pay when they happen to show up here at Winners.
This is the all-creme set, or Set A.
This set includes 6 creme shades and Stuck On You Basecoat but I'm not absolutely sure if the bottle included is a base coat. It's clear so it seems like it could be just a regular clear coat or topcoat but I did try it as a topcoat and it did not dry very quickly, so maybe it is a basecoat. I'm not sure!
Time for pretty colors!
Nomadic In Nude is the first shade in the set and it is absolutely lovely. Nude colors aren't for everyone but this is a gray-toned nude and I love it!
This takes 3 coats for full coverage.
Deborah Lippmann's Waking Up In Vegas is quite similar to this color in the bottle but once on the nail, the Lippmann dries much darker.
This is Earthy Angel and she ain't no angel. I hate this color. I don't even know how to describe it.
Orangey brown? Light terracotta? Yuck.
Up next is New Bohemian. And there is nothing new about this color...
I feel as if it is somewhere right between Essie Turquoise and Caicos and China Glaze For Audrey.
But, my girl Dori did a nail comparison of the CC, CG, and an Orly, and they look identical.
If you have For Audrey, you don't need this color.
But if you are like me and you use For Audrey a lot (note where the polish is in the bottle...) maybe you do need it...
New Bohemian takes 3 coats for perfect opacity.
This is 3 coats of Shabby Drab. This is a lovely color and it is so flattering and wait... hold on... don't I know you already?
Oh yeah, Zoya Caitlin. Yet another dupe in this collection.
If you have Caitlin, you don't need Shabby Drab.
But again, like the case of New Bohemian/For Audrey, I freakin' LOVE this color and I don't mind that I now have 2 bottles of it.
But this is a bit frustrating, isn't it?
This is 2 coats of Rad Nomad. This color sure is rad and even more rad is the fact that I don't think I have a dupe. Deep purple-toned gray.
It's much deeper than any other similar color I have. (I think. I could be forgetting something. You know how it is.)
Muy beuno. Me gusta. (Do you like my Spanish?)
Red-ical Gypsy. Boring! When swatching this color I realized I don't own any red polish by Color Club and I think that is because red is boring and CC is not usually boring. But this color is boring.
It's a perfect blood red I guess but in no way is it unique. I'm sure every polish brand has the same red!
4/6 of these colors are not original. However, with the exception of the red, the colors are very trendy and awesome and would be great for someone who doesn't own the color already.
One color is just ugly. I'm sorry. It's ugly.
And one color is lovely and not a dupe!
Overall I do really like the colors in this set and I think you should buy it - only if you don't have the dupes.
