Color Club ~ Pure Energy



Color Club ~ Pure Energy
Neon blue with green shimmer

I’m on a Color Club roll at the moment! Color Club was one of the first brands that kicked off this entire tour down Polish Lane, and it will always have a special place in my shimmery heart. I’ve still got a few untried Color Clubs I bought recently, and I might wear another one tomorrow, who knows.

Pure Energy is from the Electro Candy collection from summer 2009.

The formula seem a bit sheer, which is a bit unusual for a neon. It’s easy to work with though and it builds up fast. I used two coats for my mani. Girls with longer and/or bigger nails than mine might want to add a third coat for full opacity. The drying time is good, I had no issues with that either.

This is my final mani:

 
The stamp is from a Fauxnad plate called QA24 and I stamped with my faithful purple fake OPI “Suzy skis in the Pyrenees”. When that was dry I applied a layer of topcoat. I’m holding the fake OPI in my hand here – it’s so fake they even put it in a NOPI shaped bottle, haha!


This is two coats of Pure Energy on its own. It’s a really nice blue.


Oh yes, I still love Color Club.
Which brand started it all for you? :)


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Shimmer
Overall impression: Nice colour, good polish, although a bit on the sheer side
Buy again: I think I would, yes

  4. Beautiful color and great stamping! I too love Color Club even if I don't wear it that often...

    It wasn't really a brand, it was the discovery that I could order lots of polishes from the US to much lower prices than I could get them in Sweden lol. I think I went from 2-3 polishes in my stash to 20 in about a two-three weeks :p
