Color Club - "Revvvolution"

Hi, everyone! It seems that I only blog on the weekends. Not sure why that is, actually. I've been noticing lately that I've had "naked nails" quite a bit during week. Maybe it's because I'm just too pooped from working all day to take the time to do a full mani, snap decent pictures, then write a post about it. Or maybe I'm just lazy..........
I'll work on it, I promise!

Anywhoooo, I wanted to share with you all some pics of my very first Color Club polish, "Revvvolution". Now I know this polish has been out a couple of years and there are tons and tons of pictures on the internet of it. But I figured, since it's a sunny day today and I've already got it on, why not get some pictures of it?!

I received this beauty last week from my friend Kristin (check out her nail polish blog here) who is in one of the groups I belong to on Facebook. She swapped me this, along with China Glaze "Cosmic" aaaaaand one of her handmade nail polish rings! How sweet was that?! Up until recently, I never wanted to get into swapping. But now, I'm addicted! It's so much fun! I *heart* nail mail!
For some reason, Color Club polish is darned near impossible to find here in St. Louis. I really liked the formula of "Revvvolution", so I'll probably be wanting (needing!) more of these. I was shocked to find out that this polish could easily be a one-coater (BONUS!!!!!). I couldn't believe how opaque it was with one brushstroke. I guess to get more usage out of the bottle, you could layer it over a black polish like OPI's "Black Onyx". I've already got a swap going with someone else to get a back-up bottle of this polish, so I think I'll be set for a while!

Drumroll please.....................

Now, the OUTDOOR pictures!!!!!!

This polish is EVERYTHING I've always wanted my "newer version" of OPI's "My Private Jet" to be. Even when I used to layer the Northern Lights Top Coat (by Out The Door) on top of MPJ it still never gave me results like this! And I'm not a huge fan of holos (GASP!), but this made it to my Top 10 List immediately after I put it on. 

So my question for you all: If you have experience with Color Club polish, what is your favorite color? What Color Clubs do you think I should add to my wish list?!

Thanks again, everyone, for taking the time to read my blog post today! I know there are a ton of polish blogs out there, and it means so much to me to know that you took time out of your day to read mine! THANK YOU!


  1. Beautiful color revolution is now on my lemmings list
    I only have the wicked sweet collection that scored at Ross for 7.99 such a sweet deal I like all the colors in it and they r scented!

  2. You are very lucky to have such a great bottle of Revvvolution! My bottle is a bit of a dud :( I don't have many Color Clubs right now, but I really dig everything from the Starry Temptress collection. Great pics, thanks for sharing!

  3. Thank you both for reading! Amber, I've heard that there are different versions of this polish. I'm hoping it doesn't turn into another MPJ! That's just silly to have 3, maybe 4, maybe 5 different verions of a color.
    But I DO love this charcoal holo! I may never wear MPJ again! There's no need, now that I have this!

  4. The only Color Clubs I really have are the holo ones. I live in Iowa and can't find them here either so I ordered them.

  5. The only CCs I have are the Wicked Sweet collection....I NEVER see them in my neck of the woods!

  6. Me either! Hmpf! I guess I'll just have to get them through swaps! I've become a Swap-a-holic!
