Color Club - Back To Boho Collection B - swatches and review

Good afternoon!
I have yet another Color Club collection to show you today.
I should be Color Club's spokesperson. I own so many!

Today I'll be showing you the Back To Boho Collection B.
(See the other half here.)

This set consists of some really interesting shades, most of which are very dark.
Let's get right to it!

Boho Mojo. Unfortunately this set starts of with a really gross polish.
This is a taupe pearl frost... Just yucky. Not sure what Color Club was thinking with this one.
3 streaky coats.

Nouveau Vintage. This is a very interesting, reddish brown with green and gold shimmer. Totally unique.
Not the sort of color I like to wear but I can respect how pretty it is. Does that even make sense?
3 coats, it's a bit sheer but builds well.

Dark blue-gray shimmer that is borderline frosty but not in a gross way. I really like this one. 2 coats.

Artsy Crafty. Dark blue-toned green creme. Love this so much. Not like anything else in my collection. 2 coats!

Blue-topia. This is a deep inky blue jelly with shimmer. If any polish should be called "Ink" - this is the one.
Here's where I am a little confused. My polish clearly has shimmer. Every other swatch I have seen was straight up jelly - no shimmer. Where did this shimmer come from?
I used 2 coats for these photos but I should have done 3, as you can see.

That's one coat vs 2 coats. It really builds quickly.
Mystery shimmer, where did you come from?
I think I like that it has the shimmer though.

Rebel Spirit. Deep brown creme. Probably a bit darker than chocolate. 2 coats for full opacity. Not something I would wear alone but I am happy to have it for nail art and stuff that would require this color!

Overall, this collection is not the most "me" out of all the collections I own - but I still like having it.
Boho Mojo is not worth anyone's time, but the rest of them are!
Artsy Crafty is my overall favorite - I love it!

If you own this collection, does your Blue-topia have mystery shimmer? Let me know!


  1. Haha, you should be Color Club's Canadian spokesperson and I should be their United States one! I am such a big CC fangirl.

    Anyway, what is up with Boho Mojo? I cannot figure it out. Why so bad!?!?

    That is strange that your Blue-Topia has shimmer, but I like it!

  2. great review and lovely swatches

  3. So pretty overall. I want to like that Boho Mojo, but oy. I have never seen it work on ANYONE!

  4. some really nice subtle shades :)
    I love your blog so I've nominated you for the versatile blogger award :)
    check it out

  5. I have this set too and my blue one doesn't have any shimmer in it! I like Boho Mojo, I should swatch it soon!

  6. These look great! I especially like Artsy Crafty!

  7. I love the Nouveau Vintage and Artsy Crafty.

  8. this is my favorite set from the back to boho. love it on you cakes :)

  9. lovely set, like boho and Blue topia :)

  10. I wonder if OPI Warm & Fozzie is a dupe for Nouveau Vintage?

  11. I found 2 of these sets at Ross. One set had a shimmery Blue-topia and the other one wasn't shimmery. Interesting...
