Labels: Color ClubI bought the new Color Club Alter Ego collection from Victoria Nail Supply. I bought the whole collection and I am now kicking myself for it. I like Color Club. I think they are a bit underrated but I am a bit disappointed in this collection. From the promo photos I was expecting bling and duochromes. There is some bling but nothing unique. Not much duochrome either. I think that if you love the colors and have nothing like them they are a good buy but overall I'm not as excited for these as I thought I would be.
The Reveal Your Mystery collection. All are sheer and needed about four coats to be opaque. That's a pity too because these are a really nice collection of soft shades. They are just too much work for me.
Sheer Disguise. A suprise because I like it. It's soft without being stark and an interesting mixture of grey and blue. It's sheer and needed four coats but I'm enjoying this one. Really, really wish this wasn't so sheer.
Give Me A Hint. A soft taupe. Not as purple leaning as some taupes but more of a mink.
Secret Rendezvous. A lilac.
Revealed. A golden peach with pink/peach pearl shimmer.
Incognito. A very soft nude. Reminds me of a very light coffee shade.
Get A Clue. This looks like it has a hint of lilac to the pink. It's not stark which was a surprise.
The Keep It Under Cover collection. All are shimmery and vibrant. The opposite of the soft colors above.
Alter Ego. This reminds me of Sally Hansen Purple Gala and Hard Candy Mr. Wrong but less purple and a bit more shimmery.
Masquerading. I have no idea if this is supposed to be a pearl, frost or metallic. It has an odd texture and dries really, really fast. Love the color but not the formula or finish. Plus side, it's a one coater and might work to stamp with. This would look wonderful as a creme.
Secret Agent. Much more vibrant and purple in real life. This shares the same formula and texture as Masquerading but it's thinner.
Total Mystery. Vibrant indigo with pink sparkles. Reminds me of OPI DS Magic and Sally Hansen HD in Laser (I think it's Laser).
Ulterior Motive. The pink version of Total Mystery.
Alias. This is sheer so I layered it over black. My pick of the group. It has a slight duochrome where it flashes purple with some pink and gold.
