If you're tired of the cold winter weather and gray skies here in (most of) the US, then you'll love today's blog post - I've got the new Color Club Ticket To Paradise Collection to show you from HB Beauty Bar! This collection features seven colorful shades that will have you thinking you're in the tropics.
Now, most of you know I don't have much experience with Color Club, but I'm definitely intrigued by the fact that they're releasing such bright colors so early in the year! Although I'll admit, I think most of these will actually be really nice for spring, and most of them have a really unique shimmer. Anyway, the formula these were very jelly-like, even though most of them achieved full opacity in just two coats. You'll see - they're very squishy! Anyway, let's get into it:
Bermuda Beaches is a very soft, pastel pink with a vibrant pink shimmer. The added shimmer really brings this polish to another level, and I definitely didn't expect it! Like I said above, this shade will be great for spring. Shown above is two coats with top coat.
Sea-ing Blue is a soft aqua with a bright turquoise shimmer throughout. Again, the shimmer really makes this shade pop, and I absolutely love this shade. Shown above is two coats with top coat.
The Islands is a soft lime green shade with a hint of bright green shimmer. The shimmer in this was much less pronounced than the rest of the shades, but I love the subtle sparkle. This color is gorgeous as well, another perfect spring polish. Unlike the other shades, this polish was extremely sheer, and required four coats (and top coat) for the photo above. It didn't feel too thick on my nails though!
All Inclusive is a banana yellow that has just the slightest green undertone. This shade didn't have any shimmer that I could see, which sets it apart from the collection. I think this color will come in handy for nail art. Shown above is two coats with top coat.
Tiny Umbrella is a peach shade with a vibrant orange shimmer. Although this isn't a shade I would normally reach for, I found myself absolutely in love with this color! It's subtle enough to be appropriate for the office, but it's also bright and pretty. Plus, that shimmer is so enchanting! Shown above is two coats with top coat.
Next we have With the Cabana Boy, a bright orange polish with a bright orange shimmer throughout. This color doesn't feel like it belongs in the collection, since it's rather bold, but the shimmer ties it together nicely. I don't know if I'd wear it as a full manicure, but it seems useful for nail art. The formula on this one was especially smooth! Shown above is two easy coats with top coat.
And finally, we have Frozen Daiquiri, a bright candy apple red creme. This one didn't have the jelly-like formula of the others, nor did it feature a shimmer, and it was incredibly easy to apply. I was super impressed with this shade, and I will definitely be adding it to my list of go-to red polishes. Shown above is just ONE coat with top coat.
Overall, there are some really great colors in this collection. My top picks are Sea-ing Blue, The Islands, Tiny Umbrella, and Frozen Daiquiri. These shades are available from HB Beauty Bar for just $4.95 USD each. And don't forget, you can use the code POLISHCHALLENGE at checkout for 15% off your order.
