Color Club Wicked Sweet Collection 2011 - Swatches and Review

The first time in my nail polish life I got the chance to try scented polish. I was excited about it and scared at the same time :) I usually don´t have problems with scented cosmetics, but nail polish? I couldn't believe that it could work. And guess what? It does. Here they are one by one (some of the bottles are stained with a green nail polish that broke in the package, sorry about that).

GET YOUR LEM-ON
This is a very bright sheer yellow with shimmer. On the picture are three coats and still very visible nail line. I think it would be better layered over white.

THE LIME STARTS HERE
Wow, such a beautiful neon green. And you really don´t hear me say "beautiful green" very often. Three coats.

I ALWAYS GET MY MAN-DARIN
This is maybe my least favourite, I think it didn't work very well with my skin tone. Still the formula was great, a bit sheer but not runny. Three coats.

YUM GUM
This smells so nice! Like bubble gum. I love it! This polish is fun and so summery. It had great coverage, this was two coats. Must have for pink lovers that like bubble gum :)

RASPBERRY RUSH
Another beautiful vibrant shade. This was again three coats.

GIMME A GRAPE BIG KISS
Great to see a purple in this collection and I liked its scent too. There is some VNL on the pictures after three coats but wasn't noticeable in real life.

WICKED SWEET
I love this color. I think it is a dupe to Color Club Pure Energy which I wear a lot so I am happy to have it in a version with a nice scent. Three coats again. Just look at the shimmer, don´t you love it?

Overall a great collection. But beware, the polishes really have a scent, if you don´t like scented cosmetics, you might not like these. I liked it :) I also liked the choice of colors. Nothing unique here, they are the safe summer colors but I don´t mind. I love wearing neons and brights in summer. The Lime Starts Here would be a great pedi color, I can´t wait to try that.
As I already wrote, the formula was great. Some of these are sheer, so you would maybe like to use a white polish under, but they are not runny or streaky.
So what do you think? Are you going to get any or you don´t like scented nail polish?

  1. If the Revlon scented collection is any indication, I'm not nuts about scented polishes. When it's strong enough to permeate the topcoat, that's a bit much in my opinion.

  2. Ty růžovky jsou šťavnatý a uplně kouzelný <3 Voňavej lak mám jeden a voní jen první den :( Ale je to skvělej nápad.

  5. Raspberry Rush není neonka? Jestli ne, tak se mi asi moc líbí!

  7. Krásné barvy, mě se líbí ten fialový a fuchsiový (jako by to bylo překvapení).
    Smím se zeptat copak se to roztřískalo cestou?

  8. viennettka: já bych neřekla, že je to úplná neonka. Spíš opravdu hodně výrazná barvička :)

    Day: rozflákal se zelený ze Starry Temptress. Toho mi tak moc líto není, kdyby to byla nějaká fialka, bylo by to horší :(

  9. a jak voněj? já si pamatuju, před mnoha lety měl oriflame hitový laky s vůní žvýkaček..tak je to tu zas:)

  10. Tak to zas až tak nevadí, na ty starry laky jsem poměrně zvědavá. Moc se těším.

  11. Yum Gum is so gorgeous! I don't care for the scent, it's the color I want!

  12. Moi.Péťa: každý trošku jinak. Třeba ten žlutý voní jako citrón, ten růžový jako žvýkačka a ten fialový jako hrozny. U ostatních to nebylo tak jednoznačné, ale žádná z těch vůní mi nevadila. Myslím, že na léto je to super :)

  19. I don't think I'll order any of these. I'm trying to just buy colors that I don't have. These are a pretty collection.

  20. I hate scented cosmetics, because I hate the kind of scent they put in (ie: vanilla -_-' ), so I think I'll totally skip these.

  22. I've never even heard of the concept of scented polishes before. Would really like to try but unfortunately, am slightly scared of the neon colours. Haha! Keep up the great blog (: Love it.

  23. I love these colors. Where can they be found?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Bubble Yum, raspberry crush and wicked sweet are soooooo pretty!!!! I wanna go out and rush to buy these colors! They are safe colors but It's nice when brands come out with colors like these so you can go out and buy a fresh one so you don't keep the same color around for years!
