Color Club Blossoming is a spring 2012 collection that reflects the colors of budding flowers. It also includes a polish called Diamond Drops, meant to mimic the look of dewy rain drops on petals.
Aside from Diamond Drops, which is a silver holographic flake, the five shades are all creme finishes. I did have some minor issues with streakiness with a few of these and most took three coats to get completely even and covered.
Blushing Rose is a pale pink shade. Not quite a pastel, but close. It’s a really pretty shiny color, but not without some problems. It applied very streaky at first, and even with three coats there are some spots not completely covered as much as I would like.
Hydrangea Kiss is a slightly muted cornflower blue color. I love these colors, they are *so* me. This was a much better formula than Blushing Rose but slightly thin, so I still used three coats.

Diamond Drops (not pictured by itself here) is a silver polish with holographic flake glitter. The flakes are all various sizes and it has a good strong holographic effect. It is thick though, and not so easy to get the glitter to stay where you want it. Typical of these kinds of polishes.
You can see it in macro form right here in my Weekly Macro also.
Sweetpea is a medium rose pink shade. A cooler tone, with a lot of purple in it. Pretty, not really streaky at all, and covered nicely in two coats.
Blue-ming is a mostly green with slight blue tone creme. It’s not a dusty hue, more bright and light. Crisp. It was fairly streaky though, and I needed three coats. It’s still not as even as I would prefer.

Lavendarling is a dusty lavender creme. This picture actually shows it a little brighter than it really looks. Pretty color for spring and good formula with no streaks. This was two coats.
I’m not really bowled over by this collection, though there is nothing here I didn’t like. It’s all pretty and nice, but doesn’t feel new or that interesting. If you are lacking any of these colors I would say the best ones were Hydrangea Kiss and Lavendarling.
