Continuing the theme of girl’s night in, Birchbox sent me a mini nail polish from Color Club in That’s My Jam, (USD $8.50, full size). The color is one that’s exclusive at Birchbox and is described as deep wine color that “walks the line between pink and red”. This is a spot on color description and is exactly what you’ll get. I’m not the biggest fan of red nail polish, but I still wanted to test out the formula.
I’ve heard mixed reviews about Color Club, but had yet to try anything myself. I’m always down for exploring outside of my usual brands (OPI, Essie, and Formula X).
The formula went on pretty well. The first coat was a tad bit streaky, but dried down nicely. By the second coat, I got full opacity. While I don’t like to wear red, I can’t deny that the color applies beautifully. It’s a little lighter than what it looks like in the bottle, but that makes it a great red for the spring.
Staying power was decent. Though I accidentally chipped one of my thumbnails by attacking a zipper (my bad), the rest of my nails didn’t start chipping until 5 days in, which is pretty astounding. And by “chip” I mean barely noticeable chips, not gigantic chunks. I actually got a solid 8 days of wear out of this before I had to take off the polish because I wanted to change the color.
Rating: 5/5. I’m not sure if this polish lasted a long time because of the polish itself or because of my base and top coat. Either way, it lasted a long time and I would love to try some other colors from this brand.
