Color Club Ultra Violet

I've only seen Color Club [official website] on blogs, never in person but after checking out Scrangie's post on Ultra Violet [link to Scrangie's post] I wanted it badly.

Oddly enough, this is a neon, although I didn't know it.  It's a light purple that had an awesome blue shimmer to it.  I enjoyed looking at my hands in the bright light (not the sun, today was a RAIN day again) but then I was done.  This was a super sheer for me.  I used 3 coats and probably should have gone 4 since I had a bit of VNL especially on my middle fingers.  The other thing that irritates me is that Scrangie's posts CLEARLY shows a PURPLE.  My bottle is definitely more pink than purple.  Bad color run?  I don't know just yet.  Polish or Perish [link to PoP's post], Kris Primps [link to KP's post], and Polish Me Happy [link to PMH's post] all look like mine, so what happened?!  Arg.

I got my camera to actually behave!  Turns out, I have this "program" option where I can manually change my lighting source.  /rolls eyes.  Little background: I have a degree in TV and currently work for a local station.  You'd THINK I'd know how to do this but I just got all kinds of confused with my little P-S camera (point and shoot) since I lost the stupid manual.

These pictures aren't very clear though because I took them in the studio after a VERY long day of work and I was Ms. Crankypants.

And a flash to see the shimmer - and I guess I see a bit of the neon here.  I used a base coat of Seche Natural and a top coat of Seche Vite.  Despite my Seche Vite, this polish liked to chip on me quite a bit today, but again I had a long icky day, so that may not have helped.

Color Club is located on several etailers, including Head2Toe Beauty which has it for $3.00.  You can also Like them on Facebook and Follow them on Twitter.


  1. that color looks great on you! =D

  2. Wow, that is a really beautiful color!

  3. ...ooh! But I do like this one. It seems it sort of changes colour a little when you move your hand. Fun and funky for a relaxed day out. And it would suit a lot of things I wear...

  4. I love the shimmer in this! Is this from their Poptastic collektion?

  5. Pretty! I have a nicole by OPI color that looks alot like this, I can't remember the name though! xo

  6. Nail-Design: It's from their Electro Candy Collection - sorry, I thought I mentioned that!

  7. Scrangie's swatches and bottle pics are correct! When the collection came out, this polish was very much a vibrant neon-y purple with a blue flash... seems like all bottle have now faded to this fuchsia shade.

    I just pulled mine out of storage to check, which i've had since the release, but haven't used in a couple years. It was exactly like Scrangie's when i bought it. it now looks like yours. Used to be one of my favorite colors. I had it stored in my helmer in a cool completely dark place, too. Meh.

    I mean ,it's still pretty if you like this kind of color, but it's not what i bought.
