Color Club In True Fashion Fall 2012 Part 1

Happy Monday Everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Today I have six of the twelve new colors from Color Club's In True Fashion Fall 2012 Collection.  These six are shimmers, metallics and/or duochromes.  I'll be sharing the remaining six cremes later this week.


A Peridot Dupe?  Yep... but I'll take it.  It's way more affordable than the original and it's gorgeous!  I love the gold/green shift change.  I did use three coats of Editorial for full opacity as the formula is a bit sheer.

Show Time:

Show Time is a gorgeous deep charcoal metallic with loads of shimmer.  I love charcoals and deep grays, so Show Time is easily one of my favorites of this collection.  This one was a three coater too and topcoat is a must with Show Time as it's a tad gritty, but so chic and stylish!

Model Behavior:

Ok, for a copper/bronze, Model Behavior is nice, it does have a pretty shimmer... just not for me.  The formula is sheer with this one too.  You'll need three coats and Model Behavior streaked pretty badly too.

Personal Stylist:

Color Club lists Personal Stylist as a duochrome, but I'm just not seeing it.?  It is a pretty blue metallic, but once again, the formula is really sheer... three coats are needed and you can still see a little balding close to my cuticles.  If you're wanting this one because you think it's a duochrome, don't buy it because I'm not seeing it at all. :(


I just love Port-folio!  It's the perfect purple/green duochrome!  Once again, the formula is sheer, but after three coats, it's amazing!!  I wore Port-folio for a few days and received tons of compliments.  It's funny how the "average person" has never even heard of a "duochrome polish".  I just kept glancing at my nails to see the different shifts of Port-folio.  If you're only going to buy one of these, this one is it!!

First Looks:

First Looks is a stunning blue-black metallic shimmer.  It's very highly pigmented.. I almost got away with one coat (which was quite a relief since the others were so sheer).  Color Clubs lists this one as a "Blue Green Metallic", but I'm not seeing any green.  Regardless, it's beautiful and will get much use by me this fall/winter.

**I'm kinda on the fence with these six polishes.  I really love three of them (First Looks, Show Time and Port-folio).  I like Editorial,  but the remaining two were just kinda "meh."  The sheer formula is another turn-off, but if you don't mind applying that third coat and then the "dry-time",you'll be ok.  I'm looking forward to trying the remaining six cremes from this collection.  I do love a good creme... hmmmm?  maybe I'll try a water marble with them :)

This collection is available now at for $8 per bottle.  All Color Club products are made in the USA and are not tested on animals.  All nail colors are vegan, formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP free.
