Color Club: Blossoming (spring 2012) Swatches and Review- pic heavy

This is the new collection for spring from Color Club: Blossoming. All are gently pastels and a killer top coat called Diamond Drops. Diamond Drops is shredded silver milar holographic pieces suspended in a clear base. It was hard to "spread" and I ended up mostly using a dabbing method for application then the top coat. I used the Color Club quick dry top coat 0-60 on all manis. One thing I love about this quick dry top coat is that is is very fluid so it is easy to spread and smooth out. Onto the polishes:
A mint creme that was opaque/smooth in 3 coats. Diamond Drops on the accent finger
A perfect periwinkle creme, 2 coats. (had to adjust color in post processing to get an accurate picture, sorry for the whtie ashy hand)

A light pink creme that was opaque and smooth in 3 coats. Diamond Drops on the accent finger. 
My second favorite of the collection: a medium lavender creme, opaque in two coats. Diamond Drops on accent finger. 
A medium dusty pink (I think this one should be  "Blushing Rose"), opaque in 2 coats. Diamond Drops on the accent finger. 

Overall this collection is spot on for spring; it's soft, pastel and has a bit of edge with Diamond Drops. I only had application problems with a a few but that was corrected with an extra coat of polish to even out coverage.  
You can purchase these fro $8 ea at Color Club and these are available now online. You can follow Color Club on Facebook as well.
