I know yesterday I mentioned I was catching up on spring collections but I also have a “pre-spring” collection from Color Club to share!
The Love Tahiry collection was a collaboration with reality star, actress, and model Tahiry Jose, who stars in “Love & Hip Hop New York,” and who designed the seven scented nail polishes.
On to swatches!
On Cloud Nine:
On Cloud Nine is kind of a marshmallow white to me. Fluffy. It is scented “white chocolate” and combined with the polish chemicals I felt like I had a chocolate martini nearby! Formula looks good, but it did feel more fussy than the others as whites sometimes do. I used two coats here! Oh, and I added an accent of:
50 Shades of Love:
50 Shades of Love is a clear base with lots of heart-shaped red and silver glitters, and other smaller coordinating glitter pieces. This one is scented like “candy” and it’s a sort of non-descript sweet smell that I didn’t mind. I didn’t have to reach into the bottle to fish out the hearts much, it was pretty easy to do. My bottle label has a misprint and says it’s “50 Shaded of Love.”
Jitters is a fun mix of pink and holo glitters. This one is scented “bubbly,” but it doesn’t smell like champagne to me. I can’t quite put a finger on the scent to be honest and I wasn’t overly fond of it. Scent preference is personal, of course. I used two coats and achieved opacity with this one!
Seal It With a Kiss:
Seal It With a Kiss is a pretty pink creme that has a bit of peach tone to it. It is “strawberry” scented. I liked the scent, it was light and pleasant to me. Formula on the polish was good too – shown here in two coats.
Red-Handed is a beautiful red creme that is “cinnamon” scented. The scent didn’t last long or seem strong to me on this one, and the color is just a stunning red.
Sweet Getaway is a beautiful, eye-searing hot pink that I wanted to wear for days!!! I love this color so much! The scent is “pink rose” and it was my least favorite. It was very strong to me and very unpleasant. As I said, scents are a personal preference, so what doesn’t appeal to me might appeal to you. Shown here in two coats.
Tall Dark & Handsome:
Tall Dark & Handsome is a beautiful dark gray creme scented like “cologne.” While strong, it wasn’t unpleasant to me! I wore this pretty in two coats.
Overall, the scenting was hit or miss for me. While Sweet Getaway was my favorite color in the collection, the smell of it was completely unpleasant to me. Some of them had scents that stayed strong until the next day (I applied them at night before bed) but with others the scents weren’t strong at all. In particular, the cinnamon scent of Red-Handed didn’t seem strong to me.
The Love Tahiry Collection is available on Color Club’s site here and the polishes retail for $8.50 a piece.
What do you think of scented nail polish – yay or nay? What about the colors in this collection – any polishes you love?!
