Color Club has two new 7-piece collections out for summer and I’ve got Wicked Sweet covered today.
Wicked Sweet features 7 bright colors that are also scented once dry. I personally don’t really “get” the scented nail polish trend, it seems very gimmicky to me and I don’t really understand the point of it. I think it’s kinda cool that they really do smell like something, but I don’t have any need to smell my nails. The only one I even remembered to smell once it was dry was Get Your Lem-on, and it really did smell lemon-y, but not TOO much.
The formula was a little sheer for this collection for most of them. A few stayed see-through even after three coats.
L to R: Yum Gum, I Always Get My Man-Darin, The Lime Starts Here, Get Your Lem-On
Yum Gum is a cotton candy pink creme. This one was actually pretty thick but didn’t go on very evenly. I wound up having to do three coats for total coverage.
I Always Get My Man-Darin is a tangerine (or mandarin) orange with yellow/green shimmer. I love that it had the shimmer, that made it more fun for me. It was a bit sheer, but did cover quite nicely after three coats.
The Lime Starts Here is a bright lime green. This baby is very sheer, I used three coats here and was nowhere near getting my nail line covered.
Get Your Lem-on is a neon yellow with blue/green shimmer. Again I loved the shimmer in this, but it was also extremely sheer. I used three coats and couldn’t get complete coverage.
L to R: Wicked Sweet, Gimmie A Grape Big Kiss, Raspberry Rush
Wicked Sweet is a medium shimmery blue. Once again I had issues of sheerness, and after three coats it still wasn’t opaque.
Gimmie A Grape Big Kiss is a bright purple pink. This was on the thinner, more easy to control side, but again too sheer for me! This was three coats.
Raspberry Rush is a bright poppy pink creme. This is the star of the collection for me, which is kind of odd. I loved this pink shade, loved how shiny it looks, and it had really nice opaque formula. This is the only one that was two coats.
I’m not bowled over by this collection at all. I liked I Always Get My Man-Darin and Raspberry Rush, but wasn’t thrilled with the formula of the others. I felt all the colors themselves were nice, but I just want total coverage in a polish. Always.
Pricing: $3.00 and up
So what do we think about these?
