Color Club Wicked Sweet Collection Swatches

Good Morning guys!  Hope you all had a good weekend, mine was boring...I guess that's good? haha

Today I have for you guys swatches of the first of 2 summer collections Color Club has put for this year. This one is called Wicked Sweet. All of the polishes in this collection are scented, and there are a couple interesting combos, color wise. I have heard that this set is already popping up at Ross and is also available on some etailers like Transdesign.com and VictoriasNailSupply.com (my 2 favorites!)

First up Is Get Your Lem-On. This one was pretty sheer, but the color is fab. I don't have anything dupey in my stash. It's a bright highlighter yellow with a green shimmer. On it's own I needed 4 coats for okay opacity, I could have used another but I'm not down with doing 5 coats of polish lol. I also have it layered over white on my ring finger in the pictures below. Over white I only needed 2 coats, awesome! The only downside to layering it over the white is that it seemed to kill that awesome shimmer, you could still see it but it wasn't very noticeable :( Get Your Lem-On smells like....you guessed it, Lemon Candy.

Macro Shimmer mmmm

Shade

The Lime Starts Here is a bright neon green, I do like this color but it's nothing new we haven't seen before.  The formula was just okay, for a neon it did well, no dragging bald spots. I used 3 coats on it's own and 2 coats over white (on my ring finger) for full opacity. This one smelled like fruity candy, not overly lime like I thought it would.

 I Always Get My Man-Darin is a bright orange packed with shimmer! I have a lot of orange in my stash, but again nothing like this one. The formula on this was pretty much exactly the same as Get Your Lem-On, very sheer. On it's own I used 4 coats and 2 coats over white on my ring finger. Much like Get Your Lem-On, over white it killed the shimmer a little. This one smelled like orange Pez!

Shimmah!!

Shade

Yum Gum is a light highlighter pink. Not very unique color wise, but one of the better formulated polishes in this set. It's was pretty opaque! I only needed 2 coats on it's own for full opacity. Yum Gum smells like bubble gum, kinda like that Bubble Yum stuff I use to get when I was a kid on Halloween. I really did not personally enjoy the scent on this one, it was over powering to the point that I needed to take it off because it was giving me a headache.


Raspberry Rush is a darker more fuschia pink. The formula on this one of the better ones I only needed 2 coats on it's own. I really like this one, it smelled like raspberry pez!


Gimme a Grape Big Kiss is a red toned purple. Of the non-shimmery ones this one was my favorite. It was a bit sheer but SO shiny when it dried, I love it! I used 3 coats for full opacity and it smelled like grape candy and wasn't over powering! (sorry for the shorter nails in this one, I wasn't happy w/my original swatch and re-did it a few days later after filing down my nails!)


Last up is the collection namesake, Wicked Sweet which is a light shimmery blue. When I saw this in the bottle I was afraid it was going to be sheer like Get Your Lem-On but it wasn't as sheer as I had expected! I needed 3 coats for full opacity and there was no need to layer it over white. Wicked Sweet smells kinda like blueberry candy but it's not too strong.


Overall, I'm so-so about this collection. I really love Wicked Sweet, Get Your Lem-On and I Always Get My Man-Darin however I wish the last 2 were more opaque. If you don't mind doing a lot of coats I think they are worth picking up. My other pick is Gimme a Grape Big Kiss, I have a lot of purple but I really love that one! The rest I would probably pass on since I already own something similar.

    do they? I never picked up Electro Candy. I keep waiting to see it at Ross one day but it hasn't shown up at any of mine when I've been there yet. If this is what Electro Candy looks like then I want it!

  16. Jen, what polish do you use as underwear with neons? All of the whites I own are too sheer, so I was wondering if you knew of any drugstore whites that would do the job? Thanks <3!

    In this post I used Nubar White Peony, but I usually use American Apparel Cotton. I really like Sinful Color's Snow White (I think that's the name) It's great for the price!
