Color Club Back To Boho Fall 2011 Collection - Swatches and Review

I got these yesterday and I couldn´t wait to share them with you! Today is the first day that actually has fall weather, so it is just in time for this beautiful collection from Color Club. There are twelve polishes divided into two sets as usual. The first six swatches are the A and the rest is the B set. Here they are:

NOMADIC IN NUDE
A perfect beige that goes well with my skin tone. This is a great work-safe colour. Two coats.

EARTHY ANGEL
On the other hand, this colour does not go well with my skin tone. It looked nice in the bottle but not on my nails. Two coats.

NEW BOHEMIAN
I love these minty greens, never enough of them. This is nothing new though. I might do a comparison if you would like to. The formula was a bit thicker than on the rest and I had some streaks so don´t do very thick coats otherwise you might have some application problems. Nothing serious though. Two coats.

SHABBY DRAB
A dusty light periwinkle. Beautiful shade. Two coats.

RAD NOMAD
Love! This is one of my favourites! I don´t know why but I fell in love with these kinds of colours lately. They are absolutely perfect for fall. I also loved the formula on this one, it was just perfect. Two coats.

RED-ICAL GYPSY
A darker bloody red. Not that kind of bright reds that we see in winter collections. Great coverage. Two coats.

BOHO MOJO
For me the problem child of the collection. The colour is pretty but that is about everything. The brushstrokes are so visible, no matter how hard I tried to apply the polish carefully. Three coats.

NOUVEAU VINTAGE
Another beauty that makes up for the previous one :) I would describe it as a red toned bronze with green shimmer, but I think it is the best if you look at the close-up picture (talking about that I have a little poll in the top right corner, would love to know what you think). I don´t think I have anything like this in my nail polish collection. Very special polish and absolutely perfect for fall. Two coats.

VOODOO YOU DO
Another winner for me. Looks beautiful on nails. Two coats.

ARTSY CRAFTY
A dark green but not so much to look like black.Two coats.

BLUE-TOPIA
Beautiful dark blue jelly. It looks almost black most of the time. What is great about this one is its formula and coverage. It is perfect. However I have to warn you that it does stain, so remove carefully. Two coats.

REBEL SPIRIT
This looked black to me in the bottle but one you apply it on the nail you see the brown base. I think this is my darkest brown polish. Two coats again.

I don´t know why but I seem to underestimate a lot of collections lately. They don´t appeal to me from the promo pictures but once I have the chance to try them out I totally change my opinion. This collection is the same case. Of course even after swatching them I know that it is not super unique but I don´t mind at all. It is a typical fall collection with some amazing shades that I already fell in love with. I also want to point out the great formula which was on most of these. I had problems only with Boho Mojo and that is also the only three coater of the collection. My favourites are Noveau Vintage, Rad Nomad, Blue-Topia and New Bohemian. Which are yours and what are your thoughts about this collection? Would love to hear!

  2. Pro mě vyhrává Rad nomad a New bohemian-Přesně takovou hledám už dlouho, vždycky je buď hodně sytá, nebo "vyblitá" :D

  6. Like you said, they are not the most unique colors, but I actually love the collection as a whole. I think it's a solid fall set. I must admit I love Boho Mojo, even with the brushstrokes.

  15. I don't like all polishes from this collection. My favorites are Nouveau Vintage, Voodoo You Do and Artsy Crafty. Think I'll be getting those 3. Nice pictures!

  16. Není to špatná kolekce. Určitě si pořídím NOUVEAU VINTAGE a možná 1 - 2 další.

  17. I have a question for you. I have been admiring the quality of your pictures, your beautiful nails which seem always so perfect. Are these your natural nails or some form of art?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Boho Mojo is honestly the only one I don't like out of this collection, I love all the rest of them! Your swatches are beautiful.

  19. 3 of these must be mine at least! Mint, red and the nomad. Gotta love me some CC.

  20. Viki: thank you *blushing* Yes, these are my natural nails, on all pictures. I never had artificial nails and never will :)

  21. Překvapivě povedená kolekce a to srovnání mentolek by mě určitě zajímalo;-)

  22. I love them all, except Boho Mojo which makes me think of a polish from the 80's ^^
    Shabby Drab, New Bohemian and Red-ical are my faves <3

  25. I don't know what is happening but these fall collections are so amazing. I felt in love with OPI fall collection and now I'm in love with that one. I love Shabbu drap - that color just take me breath away. And also Rad nomad and Nomadic in nude, they're just amazing.

  26. Blanche: you are absolutely right! And you know what is the worst part? Before I actually tried these I thought they were all boring!
