Manicure of The Day: Color Club Ultra Astral Pictures and Review

So, I swatched this color quickly back when Color Club released the Starry Temptress Collection in early Spring.  I never did a full manicure with any of the colors, and they kind of just got lost in the shuffle over the past few months.  I was going through my blog photo album, and the sight of "Ultra Astral" made me swoon.  I immediatley needed to put it on!  Back when I first swatched this, my nails were painfully short too, so I wanted to see how it would look on my now more grown out length.

Here is Ultra Astral all by itself, 2 coats and no topcoat.  It dries VERY quickly and is not shiny and has a rough texture because of the type of glitter that is in it.  The glitter is not really sparkly, per se, but still glows somehow.  It is quite neon but in a nice way:

I gave away my "Starry Temptress" topcoat that came with this collection because I had Nubar's "Dewdrop" Glitter and it was close.  I used one coat of this glitter over Ultra Astral  and one coat of my Nail Tek Sensitive Nail top coat:

I really like this complete combo.  Even with topcoat, however, the polish still has a bumpy texture, but nothing too bad.  My husband saw the bottle before I put it on and said something to the effect of , "whoa, 80's color!!".  :)  I love it for summer though!

  1. Ohhh that is so so pretty, I need some more color club shades. Neon and glittery = yes please!

  2. THanks Lillian! Neons are something I was afraid of before, but they are really quite pretty!

  3. Oooh, hot pink. I think I've said it a million times, but I've been obsessing over pink lately. And the brighter, the better!

  4. The shimmer really makes it pop!
