Color Club Reveal Your Mystery is the lighter and more subtle side of their 12 piece collection called Alter Ego.
Yesterday I showed you Keep It Undercover, which I think is definitely the stronger and more fun half.
The formula on these was a bit better in terms of thickness and stickiness. These flowed better and were nicer, though on the negative side, they were extremely sheer and didn’t build up as much as I hoped.
This collection comes with a milky white base coat, which is pretty sheer in itself, but I didn’t use it in these swatches. Maybe that would have helped with the streakiness though…
Incognito is a super sheer nude. Basically it has barely any color, it just gives a very nude and shiny look to your nails. This was two coats.
Get A Clue
Get A Clue is a pale cotton candy pink. This was a little less sheer than the previous one and covered pretty decently with three coats. I think it’s a very pretty pink actually.
Revealed is a pale peachy pink with subtle pink shimmer. This is the only one in the collection with shimmer in fact. I really like the color, but the formula was a bit streaky as you can see. This was on the thicker side compared to the rest in this half of the collection and was two coats.
Sweet Rendezvous is a pale almost pastel-like lavender. I love this color, so pretty and feminine! The formula was sheer though and I did have issues with streakiness. This was three coats.
Sheer Disguise is a light dusty grey/blue color. Very unique and interesting I think. It’s not the typical sky blue you see for spring, it definitely has a greyish/greenish cast to it. This was a little more opaque than most of the others, but again, streaks! This was three coats.
Give Me A Hint
Give Me A Hint is a purple/taupe color. Of all the ones here, you get the most saturation with this one. It does start off very sheer and almost watery, but after three coats builds up nicely. I do have a million other taupes similar though.
For those who love pale, sheer colors I think this collection would suit them. But for those looking for *wow* colors and saturation, skip it. I think the colors that are most interesting are Sheer Disguise and Secret Rendezvous.
Pricing: $3-6 depending on where you purchase
What do you think of this half compared to the other half?
Have you seen Black Swan yet? If not, RUN DON’T WALK to theaters! No really, it was hands down the best movie I had seen all year in 2010, I loved it. But why am I mentioning this movie in a post about Zoya nail polish? Why because this little baby was in the movie!
There is a scene where Natalie Portman is backstage in the dressing room (it’s about the Swan Lake ballet people, get with the times) and there on the table sits Zoya Bela, basking in her ballet-pink glow. 🙂
Yes indeed, she is a light pink/nude color. She’s on the sheer side, but you can build her up decently in three coats. There is a wee bit of streaking also, but nothing to go all cray cray over. *Wink wink*
If this picture below isn’t enough to get you to the theater (MAC did the makeup by the way) then I don’t know what is!

After today we are more than halfway through the week, yay! Actually I am off work the rest of this week because of A. Carpet installation Thursday (aka Hell Day) and B. My bday Friday (aka Fun Day). 🙂
Aaaaaannnnnyyywaaaayyyy, I have some colors I think 99.9% of earth has already seen at this point, but hey, I have ’em, why not show ’em?
These are some new (ish) Sally Hansen’s from the Salon Manicure line. I believe these are classified as a summer collection. Either way I’M classifying them that way because they came out in time for summer.
Without further adieu, here goes.
Silver Lining is a light silver with multi-colored shimmer. I dunno, my socks weren’t knocked off here. It was a little too sheer and didn’t wow me as much on the nail as it did in the bottle. This was three coats.
Hidden Treasure is a clear base with holographic flake glitter. You have seen this a zillion times on a zillion websites and here it is for the zillionth and one time. It’s obviously a color you have to layer otherwise it’s a wee bit boring. This was 3 coats for maximum flake-ocity. 🙂
Here we have Midnight in NY with Hidden Treasure over it. And you’ve seen this a zillion times as well, I’m sure. It is pretty damn stunning though; I love it. This is two coats Midnight In NY and two coats Hidden Treasure.
Midnight In NY is a black with multi-colored micro-glitter. This is really nice, I like the jet black-ness of it and the colored glitter. I do kind of wish there was a little more of the glitter and it was better dispersed. It’s kind of sparse. This was only two coats though, so bonus!
How ya feelin’ these ones?
So it’s Tuesday and the beginning of the work week for me. Yay for four day work weeks; why aren’t they ALL this way? 🙂
Eyeko Makeup has a new collection of nail colors for summer and I’ve got them for you today.
I have reviewed some of their polish in the past here and here and had issues with the thickness and streakiness of the formula. I am pleased to say that this collection was MUCH better. The newer bottle shape is loads better (though the original shape was cute) and the light colors here are better than the previous pastel colors.
Peep ’em out below.
Petite Polish is a super pale, almost nude ballerina pink. It’s extremely sheer even after three coats, so it’s not my favorite. But it would work well in a very conservative setting or if you just wanted a clean shiny look to your nails.
Tea Rose Polish is a dusty rose pink creme. This totally didn’t appeal to me in the bottle but I really liked it once it was on. I don’t think I have a single other pink close to this color. It reminds me of “days of yore”. Whatever that means. 🙂 This was two coats.
Posh Polish is a medium taupe creme. Yep, you knew they would have one because every single company nowadays seems to have a taupe! This one was nice, but not my favorite out of all the ones I have. I tend to like deeper ones and maybe even ones with a little sparkle to make them more unique. This was two coats.
Coral Polish is a “coral” creme. This actually looks more like a tomato red with a hint of pink and coral on me than I would expect from the name. It’s nice though. This was two coats.
Vampira Polish is a black with tons of red glitter. This is the stunner in the bunch and doesn’t really “go” with the others, which is just fine by me! It’s ten million times more cool in person than this picture shows. This was three coats.
Overall I think this is a nice collection with a couple unique colors. The ones I would classify as unique to me are Tea Rose and Vampira. If you don’t already own a ton of taupes then Posh is a great one. I would say skip Petite unless you like SUPER sheer ones and Coral isn’t all that unique, if you have a lot of reds/oranges.
You can find these on Eyeko’s website now.
