Review: Color Club Revvvolution and Wild at Heart

I've had some great experiences with A-England polishes, specifically the beautiful one coat subtle linear holographics like Bridal Veil. You could have knocked me over with a feather when I found out that not only does Color Club have two polishes that look similar in the bottle, but actually apply just as well and are just as pretty. 

I've heard a lot about Color Club Revvvolution and Wild at Heart but dismissed it for the most part because I've been hurt before *hand to forehead*.  Turns out, both the charcoal Revvvolution and purple Wild at Heart have a great formula - only needing one coat if you're not fussy and two if you are - and actually have a rainbow holo in direct light.  It's amazing.  I love the look of the strong coloured holos.  I wanted to try the two of them together despite the colours not going together perfectedly and I figured triangles to be the way to go.  Once the two coats of purple was dry, I taped off the triangles using Scotch tape and added the grey.  As I can't leave well enough alone, I finished with glitter on the points.  Cos you know, why not. 








The Verdict: Love these polishes.  Seriously, get them right now.  They're reasonably priced with amazing depth and rainbows and are just as good as the more expensive A-England's or Glitter Gal's.  I mean, get those too but the Color Clubs will fit right in :)

  1. Color Club just came out with another set of holo polishes today, they are currently $10 on the site. They also have a few other older ones, a silver (worth the risque), a pale pinkish purple (fashion addict) and sort of a copper color (love em/leave em). :) These two look great together!

  2. Excellent call with the glitter highlights! Those little glints really draw attention to the contrast between the charcoal and the purple, and I love how you switched the colours on your ring finger. These are some great polishes! :)

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop.  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....


My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images!
To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle of …
