Color Club Untamed Luxury Pt. 2 - Indulgence

Here's the second half of Color Club's new fall collection, Untamed Luxury.  If you'd like to read about part 1, Diamond, click here.

 Jewel of a Girl - Deep brown-red shimmer with same-tone micro-shimmer.  Pic is 2 coats.  Formula is great.

Nothing but Truffle - Dark brown shimmer base with gold and orange micro-shimmer.  Gorgeous brown.  Beautiful for fall.  2 coats.  Great formula.

Ready to Royal - Very dark purple creme with a jelly-ish finish.  Reminds me of Blackberry jam.  You don't see many vampy colors with a jelly finish.  2 coats.  Formula was okay, you need to be aware of the amount on your brush and the amount you are applying to the nail.

Positively Posh - Medium-toned greyed-brown.  Formula was a little thin, though it was opaque in 3 coats.

Pretty in Platinum - Pale grey-white pearl.  This is the exact color of pale grey pearls.  The finish is satin so it really does remind me of pearls.  I applied this one over a sticky base coat, and I still got brushstrokes.  Be sure to go in the same direction and let coats dry in-between. Formula was thick and runny at the same time, though I think this is so beautiful, it may be worth the issues.  Pic is 2 coats.

Soft as Cashmere - Medium-toned putty.  In the bottle, I thought this would be more grey, but on the nail, a lot of green came out.  It's very pretty and in the "greige" family (like Positively Posh).  Formula was similar to PP.  Pic is 3 coats.

Wild Orchid - ?.  LOL.  Is it purple?  Is it grey?  This is the one that caused me the most problems in describing it.  If I had to come up with something, I'd say it's a very greyed-out lavender (maybe I'll come up with a new word... gravender.  :P) with tons of pastel (pale pink, pale green, pale blue) shimmer particles.  It's absolutely gorgeous and my favorite of the collection.  It's beautiful in the bottle, but truly comes to life on the nail.  Formula was a bit thin, that's my only issue.  It's totally worth it though. Pic is 3 coats.


All in all, I like this part of the collection.  It seems a bit more cohesive then Diamond, with everything thing in the grey, brown, purple family.  As they say on Project Runway, it tells a color story.  LOL.  I'm in swoony love with Wild Orchid.  Can't describe it worth a darn, but I still love it.  Color Club available at various online etailers (like TD and VNS) and is in the $3 range.

These were sent to me for review

FYI - the roundup will post tomorrow!
