Color Club Japanese Glitter: Sakura Glow & Another Comparison

Above & Below: Color Club's Sakura Glow on 4 fingers, China Glaze's Preppy Pink on pinkie finger. All done in 3 coats.

Below: Sakura Glow (left) and Preppy Pink (right) look similar in the bottle, but not so similar once applied.

Below: One coat of Sakura Glow over China Glaze It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere. It's sheer enough that it looks great as a topcoat also.
Here is the last of the Japanese exclusive glitter set from Victoria Nail Supply. You can see the other 3 in the previous posts from today and yesterday. Sakura Glow is a delicate shade of pastel pink with multi-colored glitter. This shade seems to have more of a creme base, while Strawberry Sherbet and Strawberry Candle have more of a clear base with a tint to it. The formula on all of these are like jelly, but unless you're applying it thickly, it doesn't cause any issues. All photos are shown using 3 coats. Even though the polish 'seems' to have a pink creme base, it applies with very little color at first. The color does build up after each coat, however. I'm happy with these polishes, as they're unlike anything I previously had. Although there are color similarities to a couple of the new China Glaze Glitters, they're different enough that I don't feel any of them are duplicates. My favorite of the 4 would have to be the purple one, Too Violet. Do you have any favorites from this set?

As much as I've enjoyed this glitter craze over the last week, I'm looking forward to trying out some of my new Fall colors and to using less polish remover!


  1. I bet you are tried of removing all that glitter! Even with felt I bet it gets frustrating! I'm dying to get my hands on them tho lol... I can't help it I want all of the ones you show me! evil, evil Mary!

  2. It must be tough removing all these glitter polishes haha. I love Too Violet too it's gorgeous. they all are!

  3. Haha, it has been a glitter week for you Mary! My favorite of this set you've shown us is definitely the purple, and I expected it to be - but this is still LOVELY. Can't wait to see what you've got in store for us for fall colors! I (obviously) LOVE fall.

  4. rawr!!! i get so jello seeing the great colour club polishes out there!! i dont know if im just looking in the wrong places, or there really is no where in canada to purchase them. failllllll.

    so prettty these pink glitters! we do have china glaze in the city, but thats 4 hrs away. I just may have to go and see if they hold this colour as I pass through next weekend!

    I had no problem removing my other CG glitters (the one that looks like dorothys red ruby slippers was my fav purchase from china glaze!)

  5. I love this one and the violet one the best. Very pretty! Thanks for posting these!!

  6. Well, I know you had to use lots of polish remover this week, and that is the less fun part, but boy, you killed me with those I check in, I think OMG I got to have this one :-) Really, they are all so beautiful and I'm glad you showed them all.

    And also, I sent you an e-mail back, so you can check your junk :-)

  7. I don't care if it's hard to remove or not. I'm still waiting for my polishes. Where are they! The only thing I'm not thrilled about is that they are close in color. I can't wait for more to come out. I want them all!

  8. Those two are so beautiful, I can't stop looking at your pictures!

  9. Kitty~Yes, I'm tiring of all of the glitters! Removal isn't too bad, but takes a little longer than I'd like.

    Nail Fanatic~all in the name of beauty, the things we suffer through (like glitter removal!). I love Too Violet, it's just beautiful.

    Nicole~I'm getting into Fall and these glitters just aren't fitting my mood! But they are beautiful. I'll revisit them another time.

    Elashaw~I hope you find what you're looking for! These remove a little differently than some of their past glitters, and not necessarily in a good way (China Glaze, that is).

    Csarah718~glad you liked them! My favorite, as I said, is definitely the purple.

    Tuli~I owe you an e-mail :) Glad you loved all of the glitters and hope you can find some on your trip!

    Lucy~I don't mind the removal either, it's kind of a trade off for all of the pretty!

    Clockwork~they are mesmerizing! Happy you like them :)
