Color Club Made in New York Live Application and Review

Hey friends!  I have another collection from Color Club for you today.  This time it's the Made in new York collection which is made up of 7 polishes- 3 are solids that I call lusters and the rest are shimmer toppers which look their best when applied over a solid.  If you'd like to see the live application video I did on my channel, you can do so here:

Let's look at some polish!
First up we have this GORGEOUS lustrous maroon called Apple of My Eye that I think is so flattering and intense.  This is two coats and even though I'm not crazy for reds, I truly loved this one!

This pink and gold shimmer topper is called Bright Lights Big City.  This wasn't my favorite out of the group, but I do think the concept is nice.  This is two coats over the polish we just looked at.

This lovely orange/bronze frost/luster is called Off Duty.  I think the color is pretty, but I didn't love it on myself that much.  This is two coats and while the formula was nice, it really wasn't one of my favorites, mostly just because of the color and finish.

The next topper in the collection is this pearl shimmer called Million Dollar Listing.  I'm not really sure this polish is worth picking up, just because it doesn't do much for the polishes I've put it over.  I think I'd rather just buy a shimmer polish than have to use two polishes to get this same effect.  Just my personal feelings :)

The final solid polish in the frost/luster finish is called Night at the Met.  I did like this one because I think the slate blue color is beautiful.  This is two coats but I think I'd rather if it didn't have this finish, but oh well :)

Over the color we just looked at, this pearl, blue, and pink topper is called Concrete Jungle.  This one does have a strong effect, but I actually didn't love it that much, unfortunately.  This is two coats.

As for my favorite of the collection, this is Lady Liberty.  As you can see, it has a very strong effect. It turned that slate gray into this gorgeous teal shimmer.  This is two coats.

I'd say if you were going to pick any up, I'd suggest Apple of My Eye, and Lady Liberty- the first and the last polishes I showed you.  I'm glad that you stopped by to hang out with me a bit today.  I hope you're having a good one and I'll see you back next time.

Over and out


  1. Hi :) I know I don't comment on your blog often, but there is a tag around called the "One Lovely Blog Award" and I nominated your blog because I enjoy the content you share and, as someone who sucks as nail polish, really love the different manicures you put together. If you're interested in reading my post or continuing the tag, you can click my name to find my blog. I would post a link to it but I don't really publicize my blog that way. Anyway, even if you don't do the tag, I just want to say thank you for the work you share on here. =)

  2. Hey- thanks for stopping in to say hi today and thanks for the thoughtful tag! I found that we have lots in common and I'm subscribed to your blog now because I really enjoy your point of view and your subject matter! I was reading your post about the 2014 nude lippie from mac- and you know- still to this day I only own one mac product and I think I purchased it almost 10 years ago. It was a shadow and I tried to apply it wet and I think I ruined it but I never through it out because it was my only mac product...lol pretty silly huh :) I hope you're having a great day sweetie!

  3. Lol! I have become a MAC fanatic - when it comes to their lipsticks, anyway - and I feel like such a stereotype now! x_x With the price of their eye shadows, I wouldn't throw it out either, haha. Thank you again for subscribing - I appreciate the time people take to visit my blog, as I know there are many others out there. ^-^
