Review & Swatches - Color Club Kaleidoscope Collection

A few weeks ago I met up with my friend Rebecca to exchange Christmas gifts. Yes, you read that right, Christmas gifts. We live in the same province, and not even too far away from each other, but it took us that long to find the time to meet up. However the wait was worth it because a few holidays/special occasions had passed, so Rebecca actually had a bunch of gifts for me! It was my birthday, engagement and Christmas presents all in one!

One of the gifts was a couple of Color Club sets that she picked up from Winners, and today I'm going to share swatches of one of them with you - the Color Club Kaleidoscope Collection.


Abyss is a medium teal creme. This is a nice colour, definitely very "me". The formula was good, although it didn't self-level all that well. My photos show two coats.


Bright Night is a vivid royal blue creme. Oh this is such an awesome colour! I don't think I have anything quite like this. It does dry down pretty flat, so you'll want to add a top coat if you want that shiny look. The formula was really good and I used two coats for my swatch.


Endless is a light pink creme. Nothing original about this one, but it's a nice pink. It actually reminds me of China Glaze Something Sweet, which is one of my go-to light pink polishes for nail art. The formula was easy to work with and I've shown three coats below.


Evolution is a light sky blue creme. Again, nothing too unique here, but it's a good colour. The formula was on the thin side so I did need three coats for full coverage.


In Theory is a clean coral-orange creme. This is a great colour with a great formula. I have a few coral shades in my stash but this one feels different to me. I used three coats for my photos below.


Pearl-spective is a pearlescent shimmering top coat. It's the only non-creme of the collection, but it could be used to transform any of the cremes into a wonderful shimmer. I've shown it here over Bright Night, which I think is a great combo. The formula was great and I needed just one coat to get all of that shimmer.


Overall, this is a nice collection. There's a few shades that are easily dupe-able, but there's also a few that feel pretty unique to me. My top picks are Bright Night, In Theory and Pearl-spective.

Like I said above, Rebecca picked this set up from Winners. However Color Club is also available from many online retailers, such as Nail Polish Canada.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I really get suckered into shades like Abyss. I would have picked it up to see if it's close to the DAVIDsTEA teal, but damnit, I am done that hunt.
