Color Club ~ Trippie Hippie


Color Club ~ Trippie Hippie
Electric blue with microshimmer


This blue beauty is from the Poptastic Collection from Summer 2010, but I bought it online only recently so it’s still around. I’ve some people have written that it’s a one coater, but that wasn’t the case for me. I don’t know if it’s because I didn’t apply the polish thickly enough - I don’t think so, because this polish’ formula doesn’t invite putting it on in thick coats. It’s pretty easy to apply though, and it took two coats to reach full opacity.

I love Color Club polishes. It’s so seldom they let me down. There was one thing that made me wonder – and that was the smell of this. It doesn’t smell particularly bad, just really weird! In fact I went online to check if it happened to be one of these scented polishes, but it isn’t. So I don’t know what’s up with this, but it definitely smells different to the other Color Clubs I own – and I do own quite a few. :)

Anyway – let’s move to the pic. Here it is!


I don’t wear any top coat on that pic, because I already knew that I wanted to stamp on the Trippie Hippie. I chose a star design from a fauxnad plate called KD3, and I used Essence’s stampy polish “Stamp me! Silver”.

After a coat of Seche Vite top coat I was ready to go.


I love stars, so this mani is *so* me!!

  2. That blue is SO gorgeous! I love it with the stars too. I always forget to use my color clubs because I keep most of them in the boxes I bought them in. I should take them out and make them more accessible.

    1. I was amazed over how beautiful this blue was on the nails!
      In the beginning of my "nail polish career" I used to keep my China Glazes in boxes, but I had the same problem as you have with your Color Clubs - I didn't use them very much. So now they're all out of the boxes. :)

    1. Tark! Jeg var også meget tilfreds med, hvordan det endte med at se ud. Jeg fik næsten lyst til at lave det amerikanske flag. :)
