Color Club Starry Temptress Collection Review



Hello!  I have been avoiding posting lately due to the sorry state my nails have been in....peeling and breaking so I said "screw it" and cut them all down....they are so short!  But I picked up this new Color Club "Starry Temptress" collection and had to break my silence.

Let me start by saying that this was my first "Color Club" purchase so I had no idea what to expect. Like I've said before, I have been a professional nail tech for 12 years and I cannot believe that I am only now discovering some of these brands!  I really was pleased with the consistency of the colors.  This collection is comprised of 6 neon-glitter polishes and one glitter top coat.  Why would you need a glitter topcoat over already glittery nail polishes, you may ask?  Well the glitter in the colored polishes is different...it is not super sparkly, but definitely adds dimension.  Once you add the "Starry Temptress" Glitter Top coat, the color sparks up with multi-dimensional wonderment.  The overall effect is really stunning and full of depth.  These are not colors that I would typically go for, but I think they are awesome for Summer, especially for pedicures!
Here we go:

First up is "Space Case", a neon, Barbie-worthy pink!
And here is the same color with the topcoat:

Next: "Ultra-Astral", an unbelievably awesome neon fuchsia! (This is my fav...click on it to see it closer....almost a bluey effect in the glitter)



Here we have "Wink, Wink, Twinkle", a super saturated neon purple:


Next: "You Got Soul-ar", a neon orange that I thought would scare the $h!t out of me, but is actually very wearable:



Here is "Glitter Envy", a neon green that seems like it would be perfect holding a can of Mountain Dew for an ad:


And lastly but not leastly, "Otherwordly", neon blue.  This one reminds me of my favorite movie, "Coraline"....she has blue nails ;)


I am very pleased with this collection, plus I was able to find it SUPER cheap ($7.99 for the collection) at my local "Ross" store.  Side note: I am from the east coast and had never heard of this store until I moved here to the west coast a few months back!

Now I can't wait to try other Color Club stuff!

  1. I love Color Club! It is one of my favorite brands. They make some really great neons. If you're ever carving more neons you should look into Colo Club's Electro Candy collection from a couple years ago. Scrangie has awesome swatches as always!

    My favorite place to buy Color Club is from Transdesign.com . I really recommend them. I've place several $100+ orders with them over the years! (Shh... don't tell my boyfriend, haha!) They have OPI, China Glaze, Color Club, Orly, Essie, and more that I can't think of. Plus, the prices are pretty much the lowest I've seen.

    Thank you for the swatches and for letting us know you found them at Ross. I have a Ross near me and I'm seriously about to leave right now to go look for them!
