Color Club Backstage Pass: Swatches and Review

After fighting with these glitters in 2 swatch sessions, I finally ended up with decent shots.  These glitters are not for the faint at heart, so if you buy them prepare for a fight..LOL! :)

Color Club
"Take The Stage"














Left to Right: 3 coats on a nude nail, and 1 coat over black.














Left to Right: 3 coats on a nude nail, and 1 coat over black.














Great gold glitter in a clear base.  This contains small hexagon gold glitter and odd sized glitter "shards" that reflect holographic-ally. Nice!!!


"Wish Upon A Rock-Star"















Left to Right: 3 coats on a nude nail, and 1 coat over black.















Left to Right: 3 coats on a nude nail, and 1 coat over black.














Another great multi-colored glitter in a clear base, but this has pretty lilac hexagon glitter in it. I actually like the lilac glitter added, it gives the glitter some "weight" :0


"Backstage Pass"















Left to Right: 2 coats on a nude nail, and 2 coats over black.














Left to Right: 2 coats on a nude nail, and 2 coats over black.














Large hexagon glitter in purple, lilac and silver in a clear base. Let the complaints begin.  This glitter was a true P.I T.A. (Pain In The A$$) to apply.  I couldn't brush it on like a normal polish, I had to "place it"...if that makes sense.

It was a nightmare!!!

But, once the night mare ended, the application over the black base, turned out pretty nice! :) The glitter is slightly "curled", so it refracts light very well.

"Platinum Record"














Left to Right: 2 coats on a nude nail, and 1 coat over black.














Left to Right: 2 coats on a nude nail, and 1 coat over black.














I loved this glitter. Great silvery platinum glitter in a clear base, with small, medium and large hexagon glitter.

A pure joy to apply, no complaints!


"It's A Hit"















Left to Right: 2 coats on a nude nail, and 2 coats over black.















Left to Right: 2 coats on a nude nail, and 2 coats over black.














Large and medium hexagon glitter in purple and lilac in a clear base.  Another P.I.T.A.to apply.

"Fame & Fortune"














Left to Right: 3 coats on a nude nail, and 1 coat over black.














Left to Right: 3 coats on a nude nail, and 1 coat over black.














This one was a great surprise! Hot pink jelly with glitter "shards"..awesome, and it is gorgeous over black!!!!

My favorites are "Platinum Record" and "Fame & Fortune" :)

I think Take the Stage is the only one that I need from this collection. I like the idea of these polishes, but I wish the big, chunky glitter wasn't so 3D. They look fantastic on you though!

@Jacqui- I agree the 3-D effect is a bit "jarring"..LOL!

I have Backstage pass sitting in a drawer waiting for me to have enough patience to try it on. :D

@Rainbowify Me- Go for it!!!!!

I'm not a huge fan of this collection to be honest. A lot of the glitters seem either really difficult to work with or not very unique. They're still pretty, just not for me. Fame & Fortune is probably the only one I'd get, it's actually really cool. Great review and swatches!
