Happy Presidents’ Day! It’s not a holiday for me but I did take the day off as a vacation day, so it kinda counts!

Color Club Take Wing is a new summer collection. It features six bright mega-shimmery polishes. It’s a little reminiscent of Misa Paradise Shore from last year, as someone reminded me on Twitter.

The formula with all of these was good. They were on the thinner side, a little sheer but built up completely opaque in three coats. You could do two thicker ones most likely, but I’m a three-coat kinda lady. A few of these look a little duochrome-esque in the bottle but it doesn’t really show much on the nail, sadly.

Color Club Daisy Does It
Daisy Does It

Daisy Does It is a warm yellow/gold shimmer. It’s a much more wearable yellow than Under My Sunbrella from Misa for me. More gold, less orange. Pretty!

Color Club Fly With Me
Fly With Me

Fly With Me is a grass green with green and yellow shimmer. It reminds me a little bit of China Glaze Zombie Zest, but a lighter more spring-like green base. It’s also in the same green/yellow shimmery kind of family as Orly It’s Not Rocket Science, but again, not a dupe. It’s definitely my favorite in the collection.

Color Club Sparkle and Soar
Sparkle and Soar

Sparkle and Soar is a medium orange with heavy yellow and orange shimmer. Super rich and gorgeous. It reminds me a little of Milani Brisk Orange but not an exact dupe.

Color Club Wing Fling
Wing Fling

Wing Fling is a bright fuchsia pink with pink shimmer. Pretty but not that unique. Very similar to Milani Hot Pink Frenzy or Kat Von D No Regrets, to name a couple.

Color Club Sky High
Sky High

Sky High is a medium blue with light blue shimmer. I was a bit disappointed with this one because it’s kind of just ok looking, and in the bottle it looked like maybe there would be a purple duochrome effect. It’s there but very subtle. It’s very similar to Kat Von D Mad Max except Mad Max has a very cool strong duochrome effect in person that this one doesn’t have.

Color Club Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis is a sea-green with light green shimmer. In the bottle there are hints of purple/blue but it’s definitely not apparent on the nail. Still it’s a nice shimmery green and I don’t think I have a dupe for it. Wet n Wild Caribbean Frost is a similar green, but not the same finish.

Availability: April 2012.

What do you think about Take Wing? Interesting or too many colors you’ve seen before?
