Color Club Pure Energy - swatches and review

Today it's World Diabetes Day and my blue contribution to this day is the lovely Pure Energy!
This is a fantastic turquoise shimmer polish with neon qualities! When I first saw it at Cactus I fell in love instantly and put it on my wishlist! Then when I looked through my stash I realised that I already had it!! :D I'd got it a long time ago from my dear friend Goldie! So here it is - Pure Energy!

GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Shimmer/neon.

Colour: A bluish turquoise packed with a brighter greenish turquoise shimmer! :)

Collection: Color Club Electro Candy Collection Summer 2009.

Opacity: Great! This is two fairly thick coats. ;)

Drying time: Normal, perhaps a bit faster.

Formula: Very good! Maybe a tiny bit thick, but still easy to apply. Apply with long strokes from cuticle to tip to achieve a nice finish of all that shimmer.

Brush: Great for my likening! Thick and firm! :)

Shine: Dries matte as a neon polish so I have one coat of Seche Vite in these pictures. You can of course use it as a matte polish but then the shimmer effect diminshes quite a lot.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate, but a bit too blueish. This polish is more turquoise IRL. It's bright as a neon but it also has an amazing shimmer effect. Must be seen IRL to be fully appreciated. ;)

Grade
: 5++/5 :D

This is an amazing turquoise polish which is both a neon and a shimmer at the same time! I love this colour and I will wear it again! It must look great in the Summer!! :D Thanks Goldie for giving it to me!! :D

Do you also forget what polishes you have in your stash...? ;)
Is this polish your cup of tea?

  1. Oj, så fint! Och inte har jag det heller! :O Det är jag säker på ;) Tänker lite på China Glazes neonkollektion från i somras med alla skarpa neonfärger med det där härliga skimret i! :D
    Och JA, jag glömmer ibland också bort vad jag har i gömmorna, däremot vittnar det om mina kassa förvaringsmöjligheter, har en helmer där lacken ligger huller om buller liggande så det är svårt att stänga lådorna och ja, allt rymms inte utan en del ligger på andra platser. Måste VERKLIGEN lösa detta för mer lack på ingång! :O
    Hur har du löst din förvaring?

    1. Jag har också en Helmer, men jag har tryckt i insatser i den så det liksom blir som fack i varje låda. Så lacken står stadigt i dom, ordnade efter färg ;) Nu börjar den bli trångbodd, men den dagen den sorgen ;)
      Kanske en till Helmer både för dig och mig kan vara lösningen...? ;)
