Color Club Japanese Glitter: Strawberry Sherbet

Above & Below: Color Club's Strawberry Sherbet, outdoors with no flash in various degrees of natural light. I was losing the sun, so none of these are in full sunlight. This was very difficult to photograph, and the glitter looks blended together in the pictures, but not in real life.

Here is the second Color Club from the 4 piece (so far) Japanese Exclusive collection that has now landed on the shores of the U.S. In case you missed it, I posted the purple one (Too Violet) down below earlier today. Strawberry Sherbet is a subtle salmon pink, and again, loaded with tiny multi-colored glitter. This one has much more of a clear base than Too Violet, and if visible nail lines bother you, you might want to reconsider this one. I used 3 coats in the pictures and personally, seeing a bit of the line doesn't bother me. This shade looks a bit more foily than Too Violet, probably because the base color is so light that the glitter becomes more predominant. It's sheer enough that I think it would probably look fantastic as a top coat over a darker base color. I don't know if I'm going to get to the rest of these today because it's raining now, but I'll give it a try. Here's a website I found that has what may be all of the glitters (you'll note that some of them say 'Japan only') that were formulated for this release. They're only $20.00 each in U.S. dollars! It's a good reference page though, and the colors are all lovely. The label name on mine reads 'Strawberry Sharbe", so I was looking around online trying to find out if that was really the name, and happened upon this page. The number on my bottle matches the number they show, so I'll assume I'm giving you the correct name.


  1. Glitters, glitters, glitters ! That will be the Glitter-winter ^^
    Looks pretty !

  2. Another gorgeous one. I can't wait till they come. I'll have to check out the other site. I wish we could get the other Japanese brands. Your nails look lovely. I was wondering if the sharbe was sherbet. That's funny!

  3. I love the name Strawberry Sherbet. This is definitely a pink I would wear. I love this color on your nails. It's a very refreshing shade.

  4. I like this one too! I think this over a coral would be really nice!

  5. Oh, these glitters are gorgeous Mary! I didn't pick them up because I thought, oh, they kinda look like ChG glitters and I've got a bunch of those now...but these ARE different and I may have to get them. Along with some of that adorable halloween nail art...halloween is my FAVORITE nail deocrating holiday :)

  6. Celine~ too many glitters! Is there such a thing?!!

    Lucy~there are so many polishes that are Japanese, Korean, etc. that I wish we could get :/

    Diana~I rather like this one! It's different, more salmon than pink.

    Kitty~that does sound pretty, I'll have to try it out sometime.

    BeautyJudy~I wondered about the similarities too, but now I'm glad I got them. I want to put my Halloween decorations out, but I guess it is a little early!
