Color Club Blue-topia



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (about 3-4 minutes a coat). It's a lovely deep inky blue colour, it's very rich. This brush is easy to use and the lid is comfortable to hold. I only swatched this and had it on for a maximum of 2 hours and had terrible staining. I first tried to remove it without the foil method - bad staining then with the foil method I also had bad staining too!!!! So no idea how long it lasted.

Rating
Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 7/10
Lasted well = N/A swatched only
Coats = 2
Finish = jelly-like
Removal = easy but messy and this stains both with and without the foil method
Overall = 7/10
Purchased from = I think it was TK Maxx in a set

My Personal Rating = 7/10 :-)

  1. It's a nice colour but too bad about the staining! I have that a lot with blue polishes, and when they get on my skin near my nails I just can't get the colour off for days!

    1. Oh I know! I was so surprised, considering I only had it on for a short time!!! It didn't stain my skin too badly just the nails! Took a good few days to get clear of it! :-)

  3. Gosh, great nail polish, so unique! I love it! Wow. I'm going to haunt it:D
    We're twin stainers as I had a stainer today too. I read that it's useful to remove stains with a toothbrush and a toothpaste, it doesn't have to be whitening. It worked! Not totally but much.

  6. That seems to be the curse of dark blue polishes. Remember my dark blue freckles....

    Kind regards,

  7. I also often see staining from medium blue polishes, not so often from the darker ones - weird.
    It's a bit too dark for me, at least if I were to wear it on it's own, but it is a beautiful blue!

  9. I think I have this one, but I have never worn it, because polishes as dark as this one tend to look black on me and I'm not a fan of that. Perhaps I'll find it and try it for stamping :)
