Color Club Back To Boho Collection for fall 2011 features twelve new colors with a very 70’s vibe.
Most of the collection consists of creme polishes, but there are a few that give us more sparkle.
Today I’ve got the first half of the collection. I didn’t have any issues per-se with the formula, but some are super thin and sheer and take time to build up. One was a streaky nightmare and one was perfection.
Nomadic in Nude
Nomadic in Nude is a beige nude creme. Reminds me of putty. This was extremely sheer and thin and I didn’t really think it would even show up at first. But after three coats its opaque.
Earthy Angel is a very odd orange/camel colored creme. This one too was super thin and I wasn’t sure how the end result would be but after three coats it was opaque.
Shabby Drab is a greyed out cornflower blue/lavender creme. This was a little less sheer than the previous two but still pretty thin. It took three coats. I want to love it, but I wish the color was thicker somehow. Hard to explain, but it’s too delicate looking to me.
New Bohemian is a green/blue creme. They called it a 70’s take on Tiffany Blue, which I can kinda see. This one was much thicker and opaque. I only needed two coats.
Nouveau Vintage is a brown with heavy gold and multi-colored shimmery metallic. This is what the entire collection should have been more like! This is a really unique color and the formula was perfection. It was thick and smooth and perfect in two coats. It’s definitely the best one by FAR in the whole 12 piece collection in my eyes.
Bojo Mojo is a frosty silvery beige color. The formula was so bad with this one I can barely comment on the color (which I find rather dull). This was a hot streaky mess and two coats.
If I am being totally honest I am very “meh” about this collection. I don’t think the formula was very good with most of the colors, and I found them to be predictable and kind of dull (except Nouveau Vintage). I love Color Club and LOVE many of their collections from the past. I hope they get back to doing more interesting unique colors and finishes soon.
