Color Club VERY MERRY BERRY and SUGAR PLUM YUM Nail Polish Swatches and Review

Recently I went to my local Sally Beauty on the hunt for the new China Glaze collection.  They didn't have it yet, but imagine my THRILL to see a COLOR CLUB display!  I have never seen Color Club at Sally Beauty, and the manager told me this is the first collection they've ever gotten.  I really hope they continue to get them, these polishes are so nice and I don't have anywhere locally that sells them. 

The two polishes I bring you today are from a scented holiday collection from Color Club, Very Merry Berry and Sugar Plum Yum.

Both of these polishes are extremely pretty.  Each is scented with a sheer base and random different sized glitters throughout.  I noticed with both that once you got to 4 coats it basically never dried and you could just rub it right off.  I recommend stopping at 2 coats and layering over your favorite coordinating polish so that your mani isn't immediately ruined.  You COULD go to 3 coats for a nearly opaque coverage of glitter.  Be warned, you have to maneuver these glitters.

Very Merry Berry

Very Merry Berry is a mix of fuchsia and blue glitters.  There appears to be 3 different sizes of glitter and I found them very easy to apply and maneuver.  This has a wonderful berry scent, but don't sniff until it's completely dry or you're going to get a nose-full of lacquer smell.  In the swatch photo above the top finger has 4 coats, the middle finger has 3 coats, the ring finger has 2 coats, and the pinkie finger has 1 coat.

Sugar Plum Yum

Sugar Plum Yum is a mix of purple and green glitters, totally reminding me of Mardi Gras!  This also appears to have 3 different sizes of glitter, but was not as easy to coat and maneuver as Very Merry Berry.  This plummy scent isn't all that yummy.... but it's ok, just not my fave.  In the swatch photo above the top finger has 4 coats, the middle finger has 3 coats, the ring finger has 2 coats, and the pinkie finger has 1 coat.

These Color Club Nail Polishes were found at Sally Beauty Supply and I paid $4.49 each with my Beauty Club Card.  There were also several other shades, but I'm unsure of what they are or what the collection is.  I've emailed Color Club and update this post ASAP with any additional information.

Edit - Directly from Color Club! - - "The collection is called Scent-cuous Scents collection. We did it exclusively for Sally’s. There are six colors in the collection.  We are hoping that this will be the beginning of a long term relationship with them."

EEK!  I will DIE if Color Club comes to Sally's!  YAY!!!!!!

These are so pretty! Although, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference between 3 and 4 coats.. Layered over a dark blue base, you probably couldn't even tell. Thanks for this post! ;)

I just got these 2 polishes after reading your post. I couldn't help myself and they are totally worth it. I'll probably just wear a base coat and stick with 1-2 coats though. I hate polish that takes forever to dry, because I inevitably smudge it.
