Color Club Take Wing Collection Swatches

Color Club Take Wing Collection

Hi Guys!  Today I want to share some swatches with you of the majority of the new Color Club Take Wing Summer 2012 collection.  This collection includes (left to right in the promo picture):

Wing Fling:  Red/Pink Shimmer
Sparkle and Soar: Orange Shimmer
Sky High: Blue Shimmer
Metamorphosis: Turquoise Shimmer
Fly With Me: Lime Green Shimmer
Daisy Does It: Yellow Shimmer

I found these when I went polish shopping with my friend Danielle from Polish.Glitter. Rock & Roll! a couple weeks ago, and I just had to have them.  The only one that I didn't purchase was the blue one, Sky High.  I didn't get it because I thought I probably had something similar already, but after using the rest of these I kind of wish I had just gotten the complete collection, and I may pick up the blue one if I see it again.

The press release calls these "shimmers" but I think that the finish is more of a glass fleck, which I LOVE.  Some of them also have a slight duo-chrome, although I found it impossible to capture on camera.  All swatches are 3 coats, except Wing Fling, which is only 2.  No top coat on any of them.

Color Club Sparkle and Soar:  I really love this color for summer.  It is a nice bright orange, with a gold fleck in it.  These all have a bit of sheerness to them even after 3 coats the flash photos show some VNL, but that wasn't as noticeable in person.  This looks to be similar to China Glaze Orange Marmalade.

Color Club Wing Fling: This is one that has a bit of a duo-chrome to it.  The shimmer flashes purple in some lighting.  This is a nice polish, a little more opaque than the others, and only required 2 coats. I don't think it is terribly unique though.  I don't own China Glaze 108 Degrees, but this looks like a dupe of that to me.

Color Club Daisy Does It:  This one also has a duo-chrome, in the right lighting.  The shimmer flashed green when I tilted my hand, and of course I could not for the life of me capture that with my camera.  This is a very golden yellow, which may make it a little more wearable for some people.

Color Club Fly With Me:  I LOVE THIS POLISH!!  What a great spring-y grassy green.  I don't have any glass fleck green polishes, and this is a great addition to my collection.  It has a bit of a gold shimmer in it as well.

Color Club Metamorphosis:  Another with some duo-chrome to it.  This one has a bit of pink/violet flash in it.  I also didn't have anything like this in my collection yet, but this reminds me a little of China Glaze Watermelon Rind.

Are you going to get any colors from this collection?  Also, keep a look out for tomorrow's water marble that I did with all these colors!


  1. These are really gorgeous! And I totally agree with you, more glass-fleck than shimmer. =)

  2. Wow how gorgeous are these, lovely swatches, these colours remind me of Zoya.

  3. The orange looks exactly like wet n wild's 9021orange

  4. I just got two colors from this collection, metamorphosis and wing fling

  5. I found the whole collection at Burlington Coat Factory and purchased it. I think they are incredible.
