Color Club Gala's Gems Collection

Most fashion bloggers report on trends, but Gala Gonzalez is shaping them——starting from the hands up. This spring, the Spanish-born blogger, stylist, and DJ teamed up with Color Club to launch this four-piece nail polish collection. Gold Struck is an understated, soft gold that’s subtle enough for daytime wear. Breakfast At... is an emerald pearl that bears a striking resemblance to a certain iconic jewelry box. Aquamarine Azulino is a pearly sky blue with a hint of shimmer, and Heirloom Pearls is an opulent off-white. All four on-trend shades have a luxe pearl finish—for a mani that's both modern and sleek.

Disappointment in a bottle
Purchased

I was so so so excited to get these polishes, the colors looked so pretty and the pearly one looked gorgeous. I got them in the mail....put them on....and it took FOREVER to dry.
I'm talking 6+ hours to dry. I would put it on in the afternoon and it would still be wet by the time I went to sleep. Not only that, but as soon as it dries, it peels. I even tried using a top and bottom coat to no avail. Pretty colors, but not long lasting at all. I won't purchase these again.

Worst application
Sampled

Love the color but the polish does not apply smoothly to the nail. Have to have a huge amount of product on the brush or else it's streaky and clumpy. Very disappointed.

Nada
Sampled

I didn't like the color-- therefore I didn't use it so I cant speak to the actual quality of the nail color. This looked streaky when i tested it on paper.

More for like my 5 year old
Sampled

I recieved the glitter polish and it did change colors in the sun, but it was a bit too childish for me, I gave this to my 5 year old daughter and she is absolutely thrilled with it!

Forgettable

Honestly I do not believe I received this set in my birch box. I do however, recall a gold glitter nail polish that I did not fancy at all.

Don't waste your time.
Sampled

Seriously, don't waste your time or money. It literally disappeared off my nails. Not even a trace was left. All within a few hours of application. This was the case for my sister too with her sample.

Not worth it! Color Change that Doesn't Change!
Sampled

I received the gold glitter. The bottle advertised that the it would change colors from gold to orange based upon being inside or outside which I assumed meant UV light consumption. I tried several times and it never worked. If it did work, I would purchase the product as I love color changing polish. I think there are other brands that have a better quality glitter if you judging the polish itself and not its supposed capabilities.

Cute, but not for me
Sampled

I received a glitter sample of this product. One, I'm not a glitter nail polish person so the product lost me there, but I tried it anyways just so I could see what it was all about! I still hated it. Glitter never goes on consistently and it's such a pain to get off with remover. If I had received a solid color of this product instead of blueish sparkles I probably would have liked it much more.

I did not find this product useful. I use permanent nail polish.

Peeled Right off
Sampled

I painted my nails because I loved the sample color. However the next day it started chipping. The texture is way too thin and felt like cheap nail polish :(
