Color Club Spring 2012 Blossoming Collection Swatches!

Good morning, hope you all have fun plans for this weekend! I'm not doing much, just relaxing. I'm still trying to get rid of this stupid cold that started all my other sicknesses last week. Today I have the Spring 2012 collection from Color Club to show you guys, it's called the Blossoming Collection! It bring us 5 pretty creme shades and a glittery top coat. It's not the most exciting collection ever but it's nice, I enjoy the pastel shades and I'm always happy to add more to my collection!


Check out reviews for each shade and bigger photos after the jump!



Formula wise all 5 cremes were pretty much the same so I'll just talk about it up here instead of repeating myself :) The formulas on these were all a bit on the thin and watery side, they were a bit streaky and took some patience to apply. I used 3 coats for all of the cremes. They weren't the easiest polishes ever to apply but I had no major issues with them, they all leveled out nicely and looked great once on the nail!

Blue-ming is a light turquoise pastel creme. I love that this is a pastel but its still bright, so beautiful for spring! It doesn't feel like the most unique shade ever but it's still pretty!



Blushing Rose is a pastel baby pink creme.  I'm pretty burn out on light pinks for this spring but it's a nice one, I feel like I probably would have liked it more had I not already been there done it with all the other collections for Spring 2012. One thing I do like, this pink makes me look tan...I appreciate a polish that does that haha



Shade

Diamond Drops is a shredded silver glittery top coat, there are also some rainbow-y holographic shreds of glitter in there also.  This gets a big meh from me, I wanted so bad to like it but I think it's just another thing I'm burnt out on. I feel like we just got this glitter in another form from Color Club in the Backstage Pass Collection. If you get this it's best to apply it by dabbing on the glitter where you want it, applying it like regular polish doesn't work very well. You will also need a couple coats of top coat if you don't want to feel the texture of the glitter. I have Diamond Drops over Sweet Pea for the photos below.

Hydrangea Kiss is a dusty periwinkle blue creme. I think this is probably my favorite from the collection, I'm a super for periwinkle and this one is pretty.



Lavendarling is a dusty purple creme. It reminds me of China Glaze Grape Pop which is one of my favorite polishes, it's more dusty than Grape Pop but it's got the same nice reddish tone to it. So sorry about my cuticle in these photos, I swatched this in the middle of my sickness last week and you can tell lol...even my skin looks like it wanted to die.



Sweet Pea is a rosy purple creme. I like this one, I do feel like I have polishes like it...it reminds me of one of the polishes in SpaRitual's Spring Collection for this year. I'm not sure if it's even close to it but it was the first thing I thought of when I saw this.

Overall this collection is okay, nothing crazy amazing here but it's nice. I don't love it but I don't dislike it either, it's just average. I feel like it's so similar to other things we've seen this Spring. I love pastels and soft shades like this but we've gotten so many of them this year that I'm a little tired of them. I think this is a collection I'll appreciate more during the summer...I can see a lot of these being nice pedicure colors!

The Blossoming Collection is available now, you can buy it on Color Club's Official Website and also on several etailers like Transdesign and Victorias Nail Supply.

  3. pretty, but I don't think anything terribly unique. I am kind of loving diamond drops though.

    Sweet Pea reminds me a little of Essie Splash of Grenadine.  :)

  6. These are gorgeous, but I don't see myself going out of my way to own them. I don't know why, I don't own anything like them but I feel like I've seen them before. If they show up at my Ross, then maybeeee. Blue-Ming and Blushing Rose are my favorites though.

  16. I love nail polish, I went to the drug store for cold meds, I looked at the nail polish, bought five new colors and forgot the cold meds, I have found that nail polish cures the common cold
