Color Club Je Ne Sais Quoi

Color Club Je Ne Sais Quoi coverOk, let me just say, I ordered this polish assuming I would hate it. But I found the color to be so fascinating I just had to try it. Entirely irrational but so is my entire obsession with nail polish so I think we can let this slide. Maybe?

Anyway. Je Ne Sais Quoi is from the Color Club Paris in Love collection and can be best described as a mustard yellow creme. Again, I feel like I should hate this polish. But oddly, I don’t.

The formula was a bit difficult to work with and I did need three coats. Though, the real challenge with this polish was what the hell color scheme do I wear with it? Luckily, I found this picture of Lauren Conrad I had pinned to my Fashion Pinterest board and mimicked her look. I wore a navy stripped dress and red shoes; it was perfect.

For my coloring this is not a flattering polish but I do think on dark skintones this would be beautiful. Especially during the fall. And hey, despite it being less than flattering, I rocked this polish anyway. Nail polish is pretty much the only way I can get away with wearing this color.

Because Color Club isn’t available from any stores near me I ordered this polish online. Je Ne Sais Quoi is available from Amazon for $5.99 (with free shipping!).

    I hear you. Yellow is a b***ch to wear, pardon my language. I occasionally risk a yellow polish too, but that’s as far as I can go without projecting that ‘liver damage’ look.

    You’re right though, about this being a lovely color on the right skin tone. Maybe match it up with an orange and a black for candy corn nail art? Or am I rushing the season? 🙂

      Oh no, I’m totally there with you. I was thinking autumn leaves, perhaps?

        Leaves would be gorgeous! With just the right shade of red! Like the golden marbling thru red maple leaves. Or golden oak leaves with just a bit of copper. I’d love to see that!

    Mustard Yellow is one of my favorite colors, but it looks dreadful on my skin. That being said, I will still probably pick this up because I love it!!! 🙂

      Haha, we have similar problems! I say just rock it anyway.

    I had that polish on my list when I went to the nail supply store and actually picked it up. But then I sat it back down – I had already picked up so many polishes and also wanted to get two more acrylic wall racks, so… Looking at your beautiful swatching, I now remember why I fell in love with it! Not a shade you see every day! Thank you for the wonderful photos!
