Color Club Safari Club swatches, nail art

Monday, February 24, 2014


I have the fun new Color Club Safari Garden Collection to share with you today.

Color Club polishes have long been a favorite of mine. The colors in this collection are no exception. The formula is wonderful. Most only took two coats and they dried to a high gloss shine. I even created a couple of nail art looks with them.

Let's take a look!

Nail Robi is a gorgeous deep navy blue cream polish. This is two coats. I am not wearing the top coat and look at that shine! It's a very classy color.

Safari Sunset is a peachy nude shade with a subtle shimmer. This is two coats.

Tribe and True is a deep murky fern green shade. I really like this shade. It is different than most greens out there. This is two coats.

Swooshes and dots are something I do a lot. It's a random, abstract look. I like how this one looks like wet paint. I used Look Don't Tusk for the base color and Nail Robi, Lion's Den and In De-Nile for the accent colors.

Another look I created to represent leopard spots. I used Tribe and True for the base color and Nail Robi and Lions Den for the leopard spots.

In De-Nile is a wonderful pale blue cream polish. It is a perfect soft sky blue with a high gloss shine. This is two coats.

Lion's Den is a gorgeous shimmery gold shade. The shimmer of gold is strong and is stunning. This is three coats. It could be worn by itself, but I applied it over Look Don't Tusk because white brightens gold polish to the point that it looks like real gold.

Look, Don't Tusk is an amazing soft white shade. I love white polishes... especially as a base for nail art. This is three coats.

This collection has something for everyone. The high gloss shine makes it extra gorgeous. You wouldn't have to wear a top coat unless you wanted to. Although I always wear a top coat.

Spider and web Halloween nail art tutorial

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

I love holiday nail art. Halloween is no different and it allows for so much creativity. I wanted something glitzy - yet in the spirit of Halloween it had to have a little bit of creepiness to it.

So how about a holographic spider web on your nails? 

I want to show you step by step how I did this and then you have the option to change it up if you want. 

I used Color Club Rad Nomad for a base color. It is a deep, dark gray shade that works quite as a canvas for this nail art.

Step one: apply the base color.
Step one: apply the base color.
Then using a striping brush and Color Club Harp On It I added diagonal lines from the corner of my nail. Harp On It is an amazing silver holographic polish.

Step two: add diagonal lines from corner of the nail.
Step two: add diagonal lines from corner of the nail.
Then I continued with Harp on it and painted the radiating lines of the spiderweb. I almost left it just like this I liked it so much!
Step three - paint connecting lines.
Step three - paint connecting lines.
Then I used a dotting tool and dotted a large dot for the spider's body and a smaller one for the head. I used Color Club Cosmic Fate. You can see that I actually started by using the black holographic Color Club polish Beyond. But there just wasn't enough contrast for it to show well. So I dotted over it with Cosmic Fate.
 
Step four - make a large dot for the spider's body and a smaller one for the head.
Step four - make a large dot for the spider's body and a smaller one for the head.
Then I added the legs. Okay, I admit my spider looks a little squished. But I have to say that is exactly how I like any spider that is around me to be - squished. I am not a fan of spiders!

Step five - paint the legs
Step five - paint the legs
 I added a top coat of Seche Vite and I had a sparkling spiderweb on my nails!

I love the way the holographic web shines. 

What's going to be on your nails for Halloween? Are you going to include a holographic element?

Color Club - Girl About Town collection

Sunday, August 18, 2013


I have two polishes from the Color Club Girl About Town Collection for you today.

Color Club polishes have long been a favorite of mine. The colors in this collection are no exception. Let's move on to the swatches and descriptions.

East Austin - is a gorgeous peach cream shade. Bright and cheery - this polish will be great to banish the doldrums or to enjoy a day about town. The first coat went on a bit streaky. But the second seemed to pull it all together. A few swipes over a couple of areas after that and it was good. The color of this polish is worth a little extra effort.

The Uptown - is a blue/purple jelly base with golden flakes. The flakes shift color from gold to red in the light. The formula is thick because of the flakes but other than that it applied well.

Color Club Pearl-Spective adds flair to any polish

Thursday, June 27, 2013


I have a great Color Club polish to share with you today. It is from the Kaleidoscope Collection.

Color Club polishes have long been one of my favorites. Lots of colors and choices of finishes from which to choose. Pearl-Spective is a shimmery flake/glitter polish that is iridescent. It will quickly transform any polish from plain to fantastic with a couple of swipes of the brush. The primary colors of the color shift are pink and purple.

I applied it over Ruby Wing Crowd Surf. This combination has an awesome pizzazz factor. A deep magenta shade with pink and purple shifts.

NOTD - Color Club Harp On It

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I wasn't going to post anything tonight but I had to share my NOTD with you. I normally wear nail art but it's polishes like this that make me occasionally go with a single color.

Color Club Halo Hues "Harp On It" - is a linear silver holographic polish. I have the whole collection swatched and you can find those swatches here.

But look at the holo goodness that comes from this bottle. It is definitely one of my favorites. This is a short post just to show you the heavenly Halo Hues. This is two coats.

Springtime blues - rose nail art

Saturday, May 4, 2013


Springtime is finally making an appearance in Wyoming. The snow is almost gone except for a few drift remaining around to remind me that Mother Nature is the boss around here. The grass is turning green and the sun is shining. So of course I had to had to create some Spring nail art.

I received a couple of Color Club polishes to share with you. I used  Color Club Evolution as the base for my nail art. It is a wonderful sky blue. It did require three coats to bring it to the opacity I wanted. If I were careful I am sure I could have gotten away with two coats. It dries to a high gloss shine relatively fast.

Then I used acrylic paints to create the roses. The roses really weren't hard. Just paint a circle with some rough edges. Then using darker and lighter shades paint lines. These lines will add to the dimension of the roses. Then I used a green acrylic paint to add stems for the rosebuds and leaves around the roses. Finish with a high gloss top coat and your finished. I used the new Sinful Colors Over the Top topcoat.

Color Club Flamingo and Wild Cactus swatches

Monday, March 11, 2013

I have two great Color Club swatches for you today - Flamingo and Wild Cactus. These colors are from the Fiesta Collection.


Color Club does color and does it well. These polishes applied smoothly and dried to a high gloss shine quickly. The shades are vibrant and truly rich in color and personality.

Flamingo - is a gorgeous, bold and bright pink shade. This gorgeous cream will be a great addition to your polish collection and will be great for nail art - either the base color or as the art itself. I envision summer flowers and bold stripes and dots. This is two coats.

Wild Cactus - is a wonderful shade of green that leans slightly toward a blue shade. This phenomenal cream polish would be great for a St Patrick's Day mani. This is two coats.

I have always been a fan of Color Club polishes. These polishes can be purchased on their website for $8.

Valentine's Day mani - holo hearts

Monday, February 11, 2013

I hope you are enjoying the Valentine's Day posts. I hope these are giving you some ideas for you Valentine's Day mani.

For this mani I used a base color of OPI Chick Flick Cherry. I let it dry and then used a dotting tool, a MASH Nail art brush (I used the angled brush and honestly don't know how I ever made it without it.) and Color Club Halo Hues Harp On It holographic polish to apply the hearts.

Hearts are relatively easy to paint. Use a dotting tool to make two dots next to each other. This forms the top of the heart. Use a nail art brush to paint from the sides of the dots to a center point and fill in with polish.

I applied a top coat with Seche Vite and the look was complete.

Abstract nail art with holo

Friday, February 1, 2013

My creativity meter seems to have pegged. I just can't seem to come up with anything. So I decided to do abstract nail art. The wonderful thing about abstract nail art is that you don't have to have a specific design and the designs don't have to be perfect. Just run with it!

I applied a base color of Zoya Suri. It's a wonderful shade of vivid, shimmery purple. Then I used a MASH Nails nail art brush and added Color Club Eternal Beauty holographic polish to add random stripes. I used a striping brush from the MASH Nails set to add outlining stripes with Zoya Trixie.

Then, using a dotting tool I added random stripes of complementary dots with Trixie.

I am actually pleased with how this came out. The holographic stripes add depth to the nail art.
