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.

Good color, chips

I tend to be very hard on my nail polish so I need something with longer wear. While these colors were fantastic, they chipped a lot faster than I would have liked them to. For someone who takes better care of their nails, this is probably not an issue, however.

Average nail color
Sampled

I got this nail color in a muted blue-ish grey color, and loved it! I can't usually pull off darker nail colors, but this one looked really nice. It went on really smoothly and lasted longer than most of the non-shellac nail colors I have been using lately.

Not my favorite polish
Purchased

I was really excited to get this polish, but I don't love it. It is very pearly I just didn't like it as much as I thought I would. I do love that they are sample sizes as I rarely use a whole bottle of polish and I really love the colors. I just didn't like the pearl aspect of it as much as I thought I would.

Super Smooth
Sampled

I'm terrible at painting my nails but this paint and metallic color goes on so smoothly that it's hard to make it look bad. I love the baby pink color and it's so lustrous just like rose gold. I always get compliments on it.

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.

ok

I got the blue color - a nice pigmented color, but not something you can wear everyday - went on smooth though

Nice pearl look
Sampled

I sampled the Heirloom Pearls color. I loved the fact that it wasn't a stark white but rather a pearlized off white color. I needed to apply two coats because the first coat was a little
inconsistent (could have just been my poor nail painting skills).

Love these colors
Purchased

You can't beat the price for four great colors. The gold color is so different. They last as well. I usually change every week and these go the distance.

Mini ride 'em cowgirl

In general the idea of a nail polish that changes color from indoors to outdoors is appealing to me, however this product is not.
I gave it 2 star since at least it looks nice indoors, but as soon as you leave home on a sunny, hot day- forget about it. The drastic change from pretty, neutral nail polish to wild, ugly cherry- it looks like I bruised my nails.
Also you can't really apply it evenly for a satisfying effect both indoors and outdoors.
I wanted to love this product but unfortunatelly it is not a good match.
