Color Club ~ We’ll never be royals vs. CrowsToes ~ Indian Summer



Color Club ~ We’ll never be royals vs. CrowsToes ~ Indian Summer
- A comparison

First time I saw pictures of We’ll Never Be Royals from Color Club I thought of Indian Summer from CrowsToes. I knew I had to make a comparison once I got my hands on the Color Club.

They’re both duochromatic that changes from purple to red and a bit of orange.

Here is what they look like in their bottles:


I applied two coats on each nail. None of the two polishes require underwear to do their magic.
Aren’t they just pretty?


The formula isn’t the same. The Color Club is more opaque and does almost cover in one coat. CT needs two coats, there’s no way that could be a one coater. The drying time is good – that goes for both bottles.
The colour shift is equally nice in both polishes.


I decided to do a blind test. I showed my nails to my boyfriend and told him that I was wearing two different polishes. He’s very supportive of my crazy polish hobby and even though he doesn’t wear polish himself, he does know a lot about coverage, finishes, similarities and suchlike. I often ask him about advice about colours and do respect his opinion. 

Anyway, back to the comparison. He looked at my nails and determined that the pointer and the pinkie had the same polish on and the middle and the ring finger had the same polish on. Conclusion: These are not dupes.
I asked him how he could tell and he pointed at the nails with CrowsToes on them and stated that these two are bluer than the other two. And he is right: Even though the difference isn’t huge, CrowsToes has definitely got more blue in it. Perhaps you can even see it if you compare the pinkie with the ring finger on this picture.


The blue shimmer is also visible on this picture.


But all in all it’s two good polishes and I could easily wear them together like this without anybody noticing but my boyfriend ;)


Conclusion: Not the same but very similar.

Prices:
CC: US$7 on ebay

I am going to keep both my bottles, because they’re so beautiful!

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Very good
Finish: Duochromes
Overall impression: Wow, these two are amazing
Buy again: Yes to both!
