Color Club Glitter Vixen Collection Swatches

Posted in Color Club, Glitter tagged at 11:24 pm by pretear

The Fall Blitzkrieg continues, this time with Color Club’s Glitter Vixen Collection. I was already pretty excited for this collection when I saw the promo pictures, but in person, they’re even more impressive. All 7 of these are made up of multi-sized glitter suspended in clear polish. Some of the Glitter Vixens appear to be slightly tinted but I think that’s a result of the glitter shedding pigmentation, it’s not intentional pigmentation in the color design. Most glitter polishes apply sparsely – these are the complete opposite of sparse. The multi-sized chunky glitter creates a base on which to build opacity. Believe it or not, all these swatches are 2, albeit somewhat thick, coats. Basically, Glitter Vixen gives you full coverage ultra bling. The formula is a bit thick, but they are fairly easy to apply. These swatches are taken in indoor lighting (my new home-made light box oooh hoo hoo) with no top coat. Like all glitter polishes, these were a pain in the butt to remove – I used Remove+ and felt.

Color Club Object of Envy is emerald green. I want to see this next to China Glaze’s upcoming Emerald. I hope they aren’t dupes – I love green and I love glitter so this is the culmination of all my favorite polish attributes.

I know what everyone is thinking, Art of Seduction is China Glaze Ruby Pumps or Milani Garnet Gems. I say no, only because both the Milani and China Glaze are fine-ish glitter suspended in red tinted polish. The Glitter Vixens are chunkier glitter in clear polish. Most people don’t have the need to own both, for nail board addicts, I think these are sufficiently different to justify owning both.

Color Club Sultry reminds me of a denser version of the hard-to-find OPI Glim-merry Gold which I recently admired at a dusty but did not purchase, now I’m glad I didn’t. Sultry is also similar to Misa Disco Queen, which has slightly darker more yellow-gold finer glitter and applies a bit more sparsely.

Color Club Sex Symbol is foil-y multi-sized silver glitter. I’m curious to see how this one stacks up next to the mysterious China Glaze Tinsel that we all have yet to see. All my favorite brands seem to have jumped onto the bling wagon, I’m loving every minute of it.

Color Club Magic Attraction is my favorite from this collection. Chunky holographic glitter? Um…. please, sir, can I have some more? I don’t have anything else quite like it. I suppose the closest thing would be China Glaze Let’s Do it in 3-D but the difference in glitter size creates a completely different holographic effect. Let’s Do it in 3-D is a traditional holographic with the full spectrum of color collectively flashing on the nail, while Magic Attraction has the full spectrum twinkling individually through the flecks of glitter.

My camera refused to photograph Color Club Tru Passion (below) and Sexy Siren (above) accurately. The image of Sexy Siren looks suspiciously like China Glaze Blue Sparrow but they are not similar at all. Sexy Siren is more of a turquoise blue with a touch of green.

Color Club Tru Passion is my second favorite. It’s not a mid-range purple as shown above, it’s more of amethyst or violet. Sorry for the inaccuracy, I’m still working out my photography kinks.

Special thanks to Color Club.

    I absolutely love Color Club polishes. They’re really top-notch.

  11. pretear said,

    Gymnastgirly – You’re welcome and sorry about the growing WL, I know how that is. : )

    Sanna – Tru Passion is amazing. Really. I love this collection I really wish it was more socially acceptable to live the blinged out life.

    Jessica – lol I was wondering if anyone would be amused by that : D.

    Firepail – I can do over black swatches with one coat for you. : )

    Threadtrend – I completely agree.

    Scrangie – Oh man. I know.

    Steph, you mention CG “Let’s Do It In 3D” as a possible comparison with CC “Magic Attraction”, but what about CG “Sexagon”? That is another bold holo that radiates the entire rainbow. A little too ‘bling’ for me, but still a pretty awesome color!

  13. pretear said,

    Sexagon has the same kind of bling that Let’s Do it in 3D has so it won’t be similar either. : )

  14. Sminkan said,

    Glitter is always fun!!! Wonderful pictures!

  15. Steph said,

    Gorgeous colors! I’m totally drawn to the red. Brings back memories of the wizard of oz days.

  16. pretear said,

    Sminkan – Thank you : )

    Steph – Yes definitely, these pictures are without top coat, but with it, these look really glossy, soooo Wizard of Oz.

  17. rocketqueen said,

    WHAAAH!! Amazing! When can we buy them? Whaah…aa… *joins Scrangie in death*

  18. pretear said,

    lol – I’m going to email CC and ask what’s up with these.

  19. OMG I might have to actually get a few. I never like CC but ya gotta love that bling!

  20. Rubbing Alcohol said,
