Today's polish for Monday Blues is very very special to me! I won it in @colorclubnaillacquer 's Instagram giveaway! :) I feel a bit bad showing off these pretties when no one else can get them but... I'm going to show them anyway! hehe
This collection was a partnership between Color Club and Yahoo! creating 7 exclusive shades for SXSW (South by Southwest festival). You can read more about the collection here
The unboxing... there were 7 polishes so 6 of them were in that cube box... 1 polish was in that random box on the side... all within a larger box... I didn't really take proper pictures because I was too excited to open it up and see the colors!
In terms of color, it's not that unique, but it is still a pretty color! I used 2 coats here. In terms of formula, it was a bit thinner than what I am used to from Color Club (although up to now I only have their older polishes). It was not runny or hard to control though, and was still very pigmented! I think I actually prefer this consistency to the slightly thicker consistency of the other Color Club polishes I own. This polish dried to a semi matte finish but that was easily fixed with some Color Club top coat! :)
I also noticed that Color Club has changed their caps. The cap is heavier than the black plastic caps on the older polishes I own. It was heavy in a good way though. It made it feel like it was good quality. I also felt that the weight made it easier and more comfortable to hold and polish with than other polishes.
I'll try to post the other polishes soon! Although I feel like it is a bit of a waste to put on polishes just for swatching, unless of course you receive them for review purposes.
Do you feel like you're wasting polish if you just swatch it, but don't wear it out as an actual mani?
