Below: Color Club's Japanese Glitters L-R: Strawberry Candle, Sakura Glow, Too Violet, Strawberry Sherbet (the label says Strawberry Sharbe, but on a Japanese site the number 109, which is this one's number also, says Strawberry Sherbet).
Below: Comparison picture of some of the China Glaze Glitters and the Color Club Glitters. Both are Japanese Exclusives, so perhaps that's why they are similar. L-R: ChG Preppy Pink and CC Sakura Glow, ChG Bad Kitty and CC Strawberry Candle.
Below: Some Halloween stickers I got from VNS. I also got some Essie polishes which I forgot to photograph! I'll include them in one of my next posts on the Color Club's.
Here is the first of 4 Color Club Japanese Exclusive polishes that are now available at Victoria Nail Supply. Too Violet is a medium purple shade filled with tiny multi-colored, slightly holographic glitter. The formula is an odd consistency, likely due to the fact that there must be billions (I may be exaggerating) of pieces of glitter in the bottle. The application went well even with the consistency being what it was, and the photos are shown using 2 coats. The finish is obviously not smooth, but it's not unpleasant or chunky in any way. I don't know if there are more of these to come, because there were more than 4 released originally in Japan. How do they remove, you ask? Assuming that there's a universal glitter difficulty removal chart somewhere, these would rank in the more than acceptable range. The China Glaze Glitters would be a 9 on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the most difficult. The Color Club Glitters I would rank at a 5.
I'll be posting the other 3 hopefully throughout the day, but I wanted to show you some comparison pictures to the China Glaze Glitters, which were also originally Japanese Exclusives. When I pulled them out of the box, I thought they looked quite similar to some of the China Glaze ones. As you can see in the picture, 2 of them are. I won't know until I use them just how similar they really are, but I will let you know. I love the China Glaze Glitters, but I prefer the finer glitter that is found in the Color Club's.
