Color Club Poptastic Neon 2014 collection



Color Club Poptastic Neon 2014 collection
swatches

I was happy to see Color Club release a neon collection, because I think there’s been quite a few misses in Color Club’s collection recently. I’m a fan and there are so many collections I have given a miss to because I didn’t find them interesting enough. But neons? Yes please. There are six polishes in the collection and I bought four of them.

I started out with the neon yellow, Not-So-Mellow Yellow. I’m usually not into yellows, but I had to try out this highlighter yellow. Application was difficult and I applied three coats before I was just vaguely satisfied. The polish is pretty self levelling though so it looked better and better as it dried up.

The sun wasn’t out for this one, so here’s a daylight pic on a cloudy day:


This is like, wow!

And this picture will reveal which colour we’ll be moving on to shortly:



Next one up is Foxy Mama, a traffic cone coloured orange. The formula in Foxy Mama is perfect. I used two easy and self-levelling coats for my swatches.
The sun came out to play, yay!

Two coats, no topcoat:


The shimmer in this one is just amazing!


I love oranges like this one!


Try and guess which colour we’re moving on to :D



Kapow! is a neon pink with a slight purple shimmer. Same great formula as Foxy Mama, and again, two coats for the swatches.


Oooh yes, what a lovely pink!


I’m impressed, really impressed.


Another hint to which polish I’m moving on to:


Right On, which is a bright purple with purple/blue shimmer. Great formula, self-levelling and nice to work with. And again, two coats here.


It’s hard to pick a favourite of this bunch, but this on might be it.


Mmm… I love the fact that there’s shimmer in them all.


And since this is the last of four polishes I bought, this is not a hint to what we’re moving on to, but simply a picture that completes the circle.



Verdict:
This is a great neon collection and I’ll definitely recommend you to buy it if you’re into neons! They have great formulas, the only one that was a bit difficult to work with was the yellow. It’s definitely workable though and that shouldn’t hold you back. It is a yellow after all!

Polished thumbs up from me!


The two polishes I didn’t buy are Bell Bottom Babe which is cobalt blue (my musicologist BF points out that this is a nice reference to Eric Clapton’s ‘Bell Bottom Blues’, flip side of the original ‘Layla’ single. I think he’s just too smart, and they don’t even know that song exists haha) -  and Peace, Love & Polish which is pink with a coral tone.

  7. Oh my lord these are so neon!!! You could probably direct traffic with these nails! I'm not normally into neons but I love these, maybe its the shimmer. I really love them all which is odd cause yellow, orange and pink are not my colour but I love them here.
