Color Club Back to Boho Collection for Fall 2011 Swatches & Review – Part II

Hello! Here we are with part two of the Color Club Back to Boho fall 2011 collection.

Most of the colors today I like better than the previous post (except Nouveau Vintage). I also found that the formula was better with most of these as well. Still a little sheer with some of them but they built up decently.

Color Club Rad Nomad
Rad Nomad

Rad Nomad is a deep smokey grey/purple/taupe creme. It’s along the same lines as Zoya Kelly or Misa Office-Polishtics, but not the same at all. This has more of a brown color to it and those are more purple/blue. It’s like a dark moth brown. Whatever that means. At first I was VERY disappointed because it was super sheer. I didn’t imagine after three coats it would be this color and this opaque. I really love it!

Color Club  Voodoo You Do
Voodoo You Do

Voodoo You Do is a medium deep evergreen/grey metallic shimmer. This has a frosty look to it but not too bad. Considering the frost it wasn’t that streaky, which was nice. Nice color and three coats.

Color Club Artsy Crafty
Artsy Crafty

Artsy Crafty is a dark military green creme. Reminds me of a blackboard. I know I have said that before, but this color always makes me associate with blackboards or pool table felt :) I really like this green, though I’m not sure it’s unlike anything else out there. This started off a little sheer so it needs three coats for opacity.

Color Club Rebel Spirit
Rebel Spirit

Rebel Spirit is a very dark chocolate brown creme. So dark it pretty much looks black, but not quite. I love it actually. I am a huge fan of brown nail polish and I think this one is deep and shiny. This was three coats.

Color Club Red ical Gypsy
Red-cial Gypsy

Red-ical Gypsy is a shiny blood red creme. Very pretty actually! This reminds me of a classic 1950’s red. It needed three coats to get it completely even.

Color Club Blue topia

Blue-topia is a super dark inky blue creme. Hmm. In theory I like this color. It is very dark but doesn’t look black. What I didn’t love was it’s really hard to get the color even all over your nail because the first coat (or two) is so bright. So as you can see around the edges of my nails, it’s not totally even. This was three coats.


Well I can safely say I liked most of these colors much better than the other six I showed the other day. I still think Nouveau Vintage is the star of the collection and wish more had been like that. The ones here I think are worth getting are Rad Nomad, Artsy Craftsy and if you like dark brown cremes, Rebel Spirit.

Availability: September 2011

What do you about these ones compared to the others?

    Wow, I’m kinda disappointed. Color Club is usually one of my favorites for being original and interesting, and this has to be one of the most random and boring collections I’ve seen for this fall.

    Pretty, but nothing too spectacular. How was the staining from Blue-topia?

    • August 20, 2011

      Hi Tamika,

      I only had it on for about 2-3 minutes so hard to tell. I would wager it stains though since most dark blues do on me.

    For me, the standout is Voodoo You Do.

    I really enjoyed Blue Topia (kinda killed my lemming for Nars Midnight Express, do u have both? and if so would u compare them for me if you have the time:)?) and Artsy Crafty. I really liked Rad nomad until I realized it was a dead on dupe for Zoya’s Petra (who has a better formula) so I ended up sending Rad Nomad to my cousin. What’s with the frost this season too? Do not want :(.

      Hi Let them have Polish,

      I don’t have Midnight Express sorry!

  • August 20, 2011

    I actually love Blue-topia, I don’t mind when the colors of jellies look a little uneven.

    Out of this half, I really like “Voodoo..” even though I am afraid of the frostiness. I will just have to give it a try :)

    Is Voodoo You Do similar to Masquerade from one of the CC’s previous collections?

  • August 20, 2011

    Sounds like the sheer ones are jellies/jelly-creams, no? That seems to be a popular finish lately.

  • August 20, 2011

    I do like the dark creme colors with this set. I thought I’d like Voodoo but it lends a bit too much into a frost for me.

    I think Artsy Crafty is pretty cool. I gotta say that I never thought to try these when I see them but come Fall I just may try one or two. Thanks for the reviews!

    aaminahs mom

    love them all! nice post vv! :)

  • August 20, 2011

    Like Rad Nomad. Who gets this brand were? I live in the boonies and only now that CC sells on their web site, never see this anywhere but on eBay.

  • August 21, 2011

    No, these colors are not getting me excited…

  • August 21, 2011

    I *LOVE* Voodoo! So pretty, I’m into this shade like mad for some reason. Any dupes in the Mirror collection from Zoya? I’m thinking no….

    Thank you for another lemming 😉

    Hi Kelly, do you think Artsy Crafty is similar to RBL ONS? I was also going to ask you about Blue-topia and Nars Midnight Express but I see you don’t have that one

    • August 22, 2011

      Hi Kristel,

      I think they are pretty different actually…

  • August 21, 2011

    Artsy Crafty is for me! Love my greens.

  • August 21, 2011

    Even though you said it was hard to get it even, I still love Blue-topia! Gorgeous on you, Kelly.

    How does Voodoo You Do compare to China Glaze Watermelon Rind? It looks like the base colors would be very similar with just a different finish. I’d love to see a side by side comparison!
