Happy Sunday lovelies! I’m continuing to share my favourite Fall shades this week with another fabulously vampy shade that I’m seriously digging right now: Color Club Jewel of a Girl. I recently picked up this polish the clearance section of my favourite pharmacy for the ever fantastic deal of $1.99.
This polish was originally released all the way back in Fall of 2010 as part of the Untamed Luxury collection. However, you can still buy it online over at NailpolishCanada.com.
For these swatches, I did base coat, two layers of colour plus top coat (Essie Speed Setter).
Color Club Jewel of a Girl is a deep rich shimmery wine shade, that definitely has purple undertones & can even lean a little brown. This colour just… it’s everything. It’s like Fall in a bottle & reminds me of that meme that pops up around Facebook this time of year. Doesn’t it just make you want to curl up in a knit blanket & drink pumpkin spice lattes & pull on your favourite pair of over the knee boots?
The formula was pretty spot on for this shade. The first coat was a little thin but as so as I applied my second coat, it was perfectly opaque. Because I know nobody has time for waiting for 4 coats of polish to dry.
I was also impressed with the shine of the polish just on its own–I added topcoat because it was 11pm & I was heading to bed shortly after so I needed dry nails, but even before they looked pretty good!
This polish is everything & I seriously can’t get enough. Not only because it was less than $2, but just the colour & shimmer are perfection. Even if Mother Nature is keeping Summer alive, I can bask in Fall vibes with my nails & pretend I’m wearing my favourite sweater dress instead of still living in my Summer dresses.
do you have Color Club Jewel of a Girl in your nail polish stash? Does this kind of shade make you think of Fall. Let me know what you think down in the comments below!
