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 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!
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.
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 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 :)
