Color Club Oil Slick Collection - Swatches & Review

Wednesday, 28 October 2015


I have been trying to hunt down the Color Club Oil Slick Collection for ages.  The places that I did find it didn't ship to Australia, then one place had some of the collection but not the full collection (I like having a full collection of polishes), but finally after a good couple of months I finally found them!  You can image how excited I was when they took less than a week to arrive at my doorstep late last week, and now I can share them with you.  Yay!

Pictures from Color Club

Burnt Out is a red/gold/green tri-chrome. I really like this one.  Definitely great for the cooler months.  The colour shift is awesome and the formula is so easy to work.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Cash Only is a teal/green/gold tri-chrome.  This in another one that I really like.  The colour shift is pretty good and the formula is easy to work with.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Don't Kale My Vibe is a lighter green/gold to green to purple tri-chrome.  The colour shift in this one is as apparent as it is in the previous two.  You can see the greens but the purple can only been seen on in darker lighting and on a sharp angle which makes it hard to photograph.  Formula wise it was easy to work with and needs two coats to be opaque.

Ice Breaker is an icy blue to blue duo chrome.  This one is hard to see the colour changes and it only appears to shift between the two blues from what I can tell.  Formula is great and only needs two coats to be opaque.

It's Raining Men has a blue to purple shift.  Now my camera dislikes purples and constantly changes them to blue.  This polish is no exception.  The shift is visible in person but not in my swatches.  So huge apologies for that.  This is one stunning polish that I just can't do any justice too.  Formula is great and only needs two coats to be opaque.

Sorry, Not Sorry is a rose gold to gold duochrome.  This one is really hard to see the shift with, but it is pretty.  Again, formula is easy to work with and it only needs two coats to be opaque.

We'll Never Be Royal has a purple to red shift.  I love this one.  Like the others, it's easy to use and only needs two coats.

Overall, I really like this collection.  Some of them don't have the greatest colour shifts but I still think the colours are really nice.  My personal favorites are It's Raining Men and We'll Never Be Royals, followed by Burnt Out and Case Only.

  2. I just discovered these this year and LOVE them. Bummed I can't find Ice Breaker or It's Raining Men now. Your post is the best I've seen to describe each color, so thank you!
