Color Club – Almost Famous & Chelsea Girl

Color Club - Almost Famous

More from Color Club’s Poptastic Collection! Almost Famous & Chelsea Girl were the two I was most excited to try out. First up is Almost Famous…

This is a vibrant (not neon) yellow creme. I’m not really a fan of yellows but this is actually really kind of pretty and I think would look fantastic with a summer tan. It applied very thin and streaky but was opaque and streak free (with no visible nail lines) after 3 coats. To be honest, I think the finished effect is worth the less than favorable application.

The color makes me think of school busses, bananas, and yellow solo cups.

Next on my list…Chelsea Girl…

Color Club - Chelsea Girl

I love blues so I was super excited to try out Chelsea Girl as well The formula was similar to Almost Famous – thin and streaky, and this took four coats and you can still see nail lines. It’s a bright/electric blue creme or maybe slightly jelly (I can’t decide) – and it’s pretty enough – also fun for the summer.

As far as blues go, I have plenty I’d choose before picking this one again. I usually go for darker blues a la Russian Navy or Orly Star of Bombay or grey/teal blue’s like MAC’s Blue India – but I will say it fits in very nicely with the collection.

  1. […] I chose to swatch Pucci-licious first because I knew Alli would be dying to see a new purple. It went on a little streaky and it took 3 coats to be smooth and opaque. It dried slightly flat – but not quite typical neon (which it isn’t) or matte flat – like some neons do. I really like the color. It’s gorgeous. It’s a purple that leans blue – and photographs more blue than it is. So without further ado… She’s pretty isn’t she? It’s slightly more purple than my picture shows – but it’s gorgeous and fun and very summery – It makes me really excited to try out the rest of the collection (I’m most excited about Almost Famous and Chelsea Girl).

  8. […] When I painted my nails this morning I couldn’t decide between funky french, half moon, or using Shatter. I’ve used OPI’s Black Shatter before and I guess I like it well enough, but I guess it’s taken me a while to get used to applying it well – It always ends up too thick or far too thin (as you can see on my ring finger). I decided to give Shatter another shot – and I really like the results. I put it over top 3 coats of Color Clubs Almost Famous. […]
