Color Club Back to Boho Collection Swatches: Part 1

Hi loves!!!

 For today I have the first Six colors from Color Clubs newest Fall collection, Back to Boho. I decided to split this into Two parts because my cuticles were begging me for a little break with all these 12 color collections lol. So, I decided to start with the more muted, neutral tones in the collection.
New Bohemian is the perfect Turquoise creme. This is bright and clean and just lovely. No, it is not a dupe of China Glaze's For Audrey. However, they could be cousins. The formula on this baby is pretty amazing and smooth but it does need Three coats for full opacity and even coverage. Strange color for Fall, but who cares?! I mean just look at this beauty.

Rad Nomad. This one is a pretty Dark Grey with hints of Purple. This and Zoya's Petra  could be dupes. I will be doing some comparisons soon. This one has a Two coat formula. Not terribly unique but still a nice color for Fall.

Nomadic in Nude. I started with this one because it was the "least exciting" but as it turned out I actually really like it on the nail. It could be a hard color to pull off for some skin tones but it is a really awesome shade of Putty nude. The formula on this one was slightly gluggy and needed Three coats.

Shabby Drab is a pretty light Grey with some Lavender tones in it. Again, another potential Zoya dupe. Think of Zoya's Caitlin and you have Shabby Drab. Great Two coat formula. I really liked this color when Zoya made it for Spring and I still love it now. Bummer that it is a dupe though.

Rebel Spirit is a deep Brown creme with some Reddish undertones. It's a very clean Brown when compared to the other Brown cremes coming out this season. I actually kind of like this shade and I don't really enjoy Brown as a color at all.

Earthy Angel *Swoon*. I really love this soft Peachy nude. As the name implies, it is a very Earthy and warm color. I absolutely love this. This color is probably one of my top picks out of the entire collection. The formula on this baby is great as well, two coats.

  So from this first half I'm really loving New Bohemian, Nomadic in Nude and Earthy Angel. The funny part is that not one of those colors really screams Fall to me. I agree with a lot of what Scrangie has to say on this collection. I love the colors individually but not necessarily together as a collection. I will show you guys the whole thing together once I have swatched the remaining Six colors which will probably be later today. I will also then do a full recap on my thought on the pretties. Don't get me wrong I think it is an interesting collection, but slightly random. I do love that the colors they created are nice, clean and bright and they decided to stray away from the dirty and smokey trend going around for the season. It's a bit more "cheery" than other collections coming out.

Which ones are you liking?

  1. Gorgeous pictures! My favorite is New Bohemian.

  2. I need New Bohemian!!! Thanks for these swatches :)

  3. Am loving that brown! Almost looks like a brown jelly! When can I buy this collection?

  4. I seriously LOVE every single one of these - I'm so desperate to get my hands on them but I can't seem to find anybody who'll sell them and ship to the UK.


    This makes your fellow nail laquer fanatic sad!

    Hopefully I'll track them down soon - I'd love the whole collection.

  5. I would Soooo wear "Earthy Angel"... It looks like a really neat shade to play with :) unfortunately I don't have access to this brand :( do you have any dupes for it I'm your collection? ( I'll check my local Winners... Sometimes they carry a set of Colour Club)

  6. Some of them are real beauties! But I agree, it's a collection combined in a starnge way :>

  7. I've passed this brand several times but that Zoya Caitlyn dupe is making me think twice - thanks for posting this I'm going to grab a few of these fall colors!

  8. Great pics! I'm probably in the minority, but I'm actually looking forward to seeing this collection in person. LOL @ "super gluggy" formula!

  9. New Bohemian is the most beautiful of these!!! :D Love it!

  10. LOVING the turquiosie cream and typically I don't pull off shades like that well - this one has depth and dusky to it so I am sure I can wear it. And wow! Am I loving Shabby Drab! Very classy looking! But I have so much trouble finding a supplier for Colorclub - where do you all get yours? I don't have any of those typical drugstore chains or otherwise that carry a lot of the brands you all take for-granted are stocked at them all.

  11. Nomadic in Nude is actually my favorite out of this bunch. I cant wait to see the rest of your swatches!

  12. Earthy Angel reminds me of Zoya Flowie.

    Not sure I'm digging this part of the collection yet.

  13. Your swatches are amazing (of course). I definitely need New Bohemian, Red Nomad, Shabby Drab, Rebel Spirit and Earthy Angel. I'm not even that big on nude colors but Earthy Angel looks like a must have!

  14. Loving the New Bohemian color! How does it compare to Essie's Turquoise and Caicos?

  15. This looks like an awesome collection and I can't wait to see it in person. I'm loving all the non-dark colors and love when companies throw in some colors like these for those of us who don't like to make our manicures seasonal.
