Color Club Blossoming Collection for Spring 2012

Right about now I’m starting to crave the neon shades and bright colors of summer, but leading up to this, I was on a tear wearing the entire Color Club Blossoming collection for spring!

Blossoming is an assortment of five light-hearted shades with a hologaphic, irregular glitter top coat called Diamond Drops. I know there’s a name for this type of glitter; I want to call it slivered or ice or cracked but I don’t think that’s technically correct, just words I’d use to describe it!

Diamond Drops really made this collection for me. The colors by themselves are nice spring colors, but not necessarily unique. But once I wore a couple pieces from the collection, I started wearing Diamond Drops different ways over the colors, which kept the collection fresh for me!

Check out swatches – first each of the creme shades by themselves and then with Diamond Drops on top!

Color Thoughts

Overall, the colors in this collection are perfect spring colors. Light and fun. The winners for me were Blue Ming and Hydrangea Kiss, and of course, Diamond Drops.

Dupe Talk

Diamond Drops is unique in my collection; I’m not sure I’ve seen anything like it. The other colors, while a perfect spring collection, are likely dupable.

Application Issues

I didn’t have any trouble applying these polishes. It was a creme formula, and I used two coats to achieve opacity. Diamond Drops is pretty packed with glitter, but I did maneuver some of the glitter pieces around.

Additional Information

The Blossoming collection is available through the Color Club website (the shop is linked to at the top of the post) and Victoria Nail Supply, Trans Design and Head 2 Toe Beauty. The collection might be available elsewhere online but I have had great customer service at all these shops.
