Bright skittle nails

Time for something bright, something sparkly, something new...

Introducing the Color Club Take Wing collection!

This is a gorgeous collection of six super sparkly, super shimmery polishes that when layered over some nice bright colours from the Barry M collection look super lovely. Can you tell I think this collection is super ;-)

For this lovely skittle manicure I used five of the polishes (for obvious reasons) and I have included lots of pictures below for you to really appreciate how beautiful they all are.

In the picture above I am holding Sparkle & Soar. A rich tangerine jelly with lots of golden shimmery glitter particles. Beautiful :-).

Below is Daisy Does It. This is like sunshine in a bottle and for somebody who doesnt really like yellows I have to say I am loving this! Lots of glass fleck golden yellow shimmer that translates beautifully to the nail.

This beautiful blue is Sky High. It contains lots of pretty little blue and lilac glitter flecks and is a polish that I will wear and wear again.

Next up is Wing Fling. My second favourite of this collection. Just look at all that pretty pink and silver glassy shimmer. Perfect over one coat of Barry M Shocking Pink.

I saved my favourite until last... this is Metamorphosis, a gorgeous teal green. I just know that I will turn to this again and again.  I love green!

These are all of the lovely polishes I used to make this skittle manicure come to life...

I stamped this diagonal flower tip design using Barry M Silver Foil  and the flowery vine image on BM 316. I had originally planned to stamp in black but these colours were so pretty that I just couldnt stand to use anything harsh. The silver really picks out the glass flecks found across the Wing Fling collection.

Just because this product is new to me and I was fascinated to see how the glitters would look... I mattified this manicure using Essie Matte About Me.

Clockwise: All Barry M - Cobalt Blue, Shocking Pink, Emerald Green, Yellow, Block Orange

Clockwise: All Wing Fling - Sky High, Wing Fling, Metamorphosis, Daisy Does It, Sparkle & Soar
The sixth polish in this collection is called Fly With Me, it is a lime green base with a golden sparkle and will be featured here in the not too distant future.

Are you loving this collection as much as me? Do you like the glossy version or the mattified version of my finished skittle manicure?

Take care

  1. Glossy wins hands down. These are gorgeous colours. Can you wear alone without base Barry M?xx

  2. Glossy wins for me too :). Each polish builds nicely with three coats and no coloured base. I will post some swatches soon xx

  3. These are amazing! The colours are gorgeous x

  4. I own Color Club Daisy does it, too and I love it. You created a funny look I would wear :)
