Holy brightness Batman! Color Club’s new collection for summer 2009 is a very vivid one called Electro Candy. These colors are definitely in the “neon” category (with shimmer!) though my pictures don’t necessarily show that. Neon’s are really hard to photograph, at least for me, so trust me when I say these are even brighter in person. Pics taken in sun with their color enhancing top coat.
The namesake of the bunch Electro Candy is a bright candy colored pink. It leans towards a blue/pink with the undertones. This one is definitely brighter than the picture leads you to believe. This is three coats.
Can you imagine this is WAYYY brighter in person? It is! Volt Of Light is an UBER bright yellow neon shimmer that practically glows. I loved it actually, I really thought it flattered my skin tone since the yellow is a lemon yellow. It was a little streaky at first, as all yellows seem to be, but after 3 coats it was fabulous.
What A Shock! is also a lot brighter in person than the pics show. It’s an apple green color and again looks really great with my cool skin tone. This was also three coats.
Tangerine Scream is a tangerine, almost coral, colored polish. This was also bright but not as shocking as the two previous ones. I liked it on me, but think it would look better on warmer toned skin. This was three coats.
Ultra Violet surprised me in that I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. I like it, but don’t LOVE it for some reason. The color is a lavender/ light grape and is a little more tame than the other colors in terms of brightness. It flattered fair skin, but just didn’t totally *wow* me. This was three coats.
I think Pure Energy was either my fav or second fav (to Volt Of Light) of this collection. The blue is a sky blue and it’s bright but not as bright as some blues that aren’t billed as “electro” or neons. The base of blue may be very similar to a lot of blues out there right now, but the shimmer to it definitely makes it not like any others. Again, super flattering on cooler skin and this was three coats.
I really like this collection and am surprised at how easy it is to wear these colors. I don’t really go for neons normally but these weren’t “Day Glo” colors really so I found them to be very wearable. You can find these here and they retail for $2.50 each.
Which are your favs? Are you an “Electro” kinda person?
