Color Club Poptastic Collection


I got this collection a loooong time ago. These were actually my first Color Clubs! I got lucky and spotted them at Ross. I quickly snatched them up lest someone else was spying them! This post, along with future spam and collection posts, will be short because I have so many I still need to swatch. Enjoy! :)

The formula on all of these Color Clubs were more or less the same. There will be more details under each swatch. Poptastic, Warhol, and Wham! Pow! were the only true neons. Twiggie, Chelsea Girl, and Pucci-licious were just bright cremes, possibly due to the addition of neon pigment. Almost Famous, the only one that took 4 coats to become opaque and did not have any neon pigment, was a standard creme. Except for Almost Famous, they all dried somewhat matte as they still had a nice gloss to them. All of them did not level well, but that problem can probably be corrected with a good top coat. I did not use top coat for these swatches, however.


Neon bubblegum pink and is actually lighter than shown. 3 coats. Dried quickly and slightly matte.


Reddish pink neon that pulled more red on me. 3 coats. Dried quickly and slightly matte.

Wham! Pow!

Super neon orange! Much more radioactive than traffic cone orange. I actually really liked this one; I thought I wouldn't because it was so retina-searing! 3 coats. Dried quickly and slightly matte.

Almost Famous

Warm, medium yellow creme. For some reason, this one always reminds me of egg yolk! 4 coats. This one had lots of dragging and, since it was a creme, the formula was thicker than the others. I honestly don't expect much from yellows because they are notorious for their formula and pigmentation problems. However, Almost Famous is still my go-to yellow because it's one of the most opaque yellow cremes I have.


Bright green creme with lots of white in its base. 3 coats in order to cover some patches. You can get away with 2 if you do thicker coats though. Dried quickly and slightly matte.

Chelsea Girl

A bright blue jelly. 3 coats, but you can still see my nail line. I don't mind seeing that so I left it at 3 coats. If you want it to be opaque, then you would probably need 4 or 5 coats. Dried quickly and slightly matte. I have a feeling Chelsea Girl might be good for jelly sandwiches... ;)


A somewhat bright, medium purple. 3 coats. Dried quickly and slightly matte.

What do you guys think? Please let me know! :)

See you guys on the other side of the day!



  1. There pretty!! I like them a lot :) Wish I could find these Color Club sets too!

    1. Good luck! I find that availability also depends on the locations of the Rosses you frequent. Some even have Orly, Essie, and Nicole by OPI!

  2. Beautiful colors, great swatches! I really like seeing neons like these without topcoat because it's more informative. You can hide good/bad formulas so easily with a good top coat, and it's good to know what you're getting into with neons! I love those pinks. :)
