I’m ending this near month-long streak of Color Club polishes with one last scented polish. (What can I say, I loved this brand’s summer collections.) Color Club The Lime Starts Here (Wicked Sweet, Summer 2011) is a neon lime green creme:
Picture taken in sunlight. This applied well enough, but was not very pigmented and was streaky so I ultimately needed four coats to achieve that opaque, even result I was after. The formula is kind of sheer and it builds up like a jelly, but it’s too opaque to be a true jelly. It straddles that in-between, but I’m still considering it a creme. It’s a lovely, very glowy color, but I have other neon greens that cover in less coats. Due to the lack of pigmentation, I probably could’ve skipped this one if not for its scent. Strangely, it’s not that limey of a smell. There’s a vague citrus hint in there, but overall the scent reminds me more of lime baked goods than actual limes. I was surprised by this; I would’ve expected a green like this to smell like lemon-lime soda. But the fact that it’s scented at all makes me happy. I paired this with Essie Knockout Pout on my toes.
