Manicure Monday – One of those can’t stop looking at shades!

manimonday020913Recently I attended the Sydney International Spa & Beauty Expo (haul video coming soon!). One of the brands I was excited that were going to be there was Color Club and they didn’t disappoint. I do hope they become more readily available for Australian buyers because the polishes are good quality, affordable and on trend.

So I saw the the shade “The Uptown” and it was love… You know the emoji with heart eyes? Yep that was me! The shade is a dark purple jelly base with flakies that show up orange, green and purple depending on where the light hits. I layered two coats over the top of Illamasqua Faux Pas* because i’m not a huge fan of jelly bases on their own.

When I was going to purchase I saw it in a duo pack along with the peachy neon shade “East Austin”. I’m so glad I picked up this duo because not only do they look cool together but this peachy shade is something that I feel will be gracing my fingers and toes throughout summer. I often find these shades are hard to work with my skin tone but this one seems to!

Both of these shades are from the “Girl About Town” Collection from Color Club.

    O-M-G…I think I’ve got that love heart eyes emoji too!!! It reminds me a little of that Max Factor one…can’t remember the name but it’s got a similar “feel” to it. It’s purple but when you paint it on, it’s got this holographic type effect. I LOVE The Uptown on you!!

  • The Uptown! <333

    East Austin is a colour that I probably wouldn't look at twice, but it's soo pretty on.


    • Thanks chook!

      I thought that about East Austin too, but I think i’ll be wearing it a lot!

      If i’m not here to enable you, what am I here for? lol

  • Oooh so pretty, I’m going to hunt for The Uptown! 🙂
