Color Club Evolution and Pearl-spective

Today I've got two shades from Color Club which they sent for review. Both of these are from the Kaleidoscope collection for Spring/Summer 2013.

Evolution is a light blue creme. I swatched it at three coats, no topcoat.





Pearl-spective is a sheer shimmery topcoat. With a name like Pearl-spective, one might expect something pearlescent, but what one gets is microflakies. Nothing wrong with microflakies, and I suppose it's hard to come up with a punny name for flakies. The shimmer here is mostly pink, though the transluscent flakies also show yellow from some angles; the yellow is more visibile in photos compared to how it looks in real life. Here's one coat of Pearl-pestive over Evolution:





Bumping up Pearl-spective to two coats makes it more shimmery:





I wasn't really sold on Pearl-spective over the light blue, so I tried two coats of it over black. Ah hello, purple—that's more like it.



Over black, there were hints of multichrome in Pearl-spective that hadn't been obvious over the lighter color. I saw some peachy pink and dusty blue along with the purple as I moved my nails around.



I only have these two, but if you want to see the whole collection swatched, go visit Rebecca Likes Nails.

The polishes shown in this entry were provided free for review purposes. The content of the entry was not dictated by the provider, and I get to keep the polishes for my own use.

  5. Pretty pretty pretty! I really like Pearl layered over the light blue. Now I wish I would have bought it at the supply store.

  6. pearl-spective definitely looks better over a darker color. i like it over the blue but it just doesn't stand out as much.
