Color Club Dark Romance swatches anyone?

I recieved the Color club Dark Romance mini set from Color Club for review and I had a chance to quickly swatch these tonight.


Isn't it adorable! I love the packaging.
It comes with a matte top coat, Alabaster, Smoke and mirrors and Dark Romance.
These are all matte so I was a little confused by the inculsion of a matte top coat at first.
Then after swatching I think it's a great idea.


Dark Romance is a beautiful satiny black matte with almost a rubber texture to it which I found very cool.


This is 2 coats with no top coat. These are a little slower to dry than most mattes so they are more forgiving in application. Also they are slightly satin, not flat or chalky matte.


Smoke and mirrors is a matte metallic silver. I love this!


This is one coat over Dark Romance. If you wore it alone I think you would need two coats.
I love the sparkly yet matte look of this one!


Alabaster is streaky on the first coat but the second smooths out nicely for a matte white.


As with Dark Romance, Alabaster has a slightly satin finish which I really like for the white.


I added a coat of the Color Club matte top coat and Alabaster turned to a completely flat matte.
So I like that you have an option with these. If you like the satin matte leave it as is or if you want a super flat matte add a coat of the matte top coat. You can also use it over and regular polish to mattify.
I think the application is easier with these than I've found with most other Matte polishes.
So YAY Color Club, you did a great job with some sexy mattes!

What do you think? Which matte do you like? Flat, satin or no matte at all?

  1. They all look lovely on you! I have this set too and I really like Smoke & Mirrors. I also like the mini bottles. Their shape is much easier to work with than other mini's.

  12. Love that look. Thanks for swatching that mini set. I'm going to have to get it. I really love the matte look or satin look. I love anything that is done to nails. I like the silver tips also. I'm going to use Color Club's red glitter for my manicure tonight. I have one red hand and one green. I was testing out reds to wear for the next manicure. I like the look of the two different colors! I'd rather paint my nails than write out the Christmas cards.
    Have you gotten your done yet?

  14. I might get this for the topcoat and the silver. I have the black already. It was in my Master of Disguise set my mistake. It is a nice satin black I agree with that. I like the idea of a matte topcoat. I have a couple of matte polishes and I don't use them that much. I like that these are kinda in between. :)
