Color Club — Look, Don’t Tusk (Professional Nail Lacquer)

Collection: Color Club 2014 Spring, Safari Garden

I scored a pack of six Color Club polishes, plus a clear top coat, marked down to CA$5 at Winners.

The Color Club packs sold at Winners are typically unlabeled, but the colors all looked like the ones in Color Club’s Spring 2014 Safari Garden collection. I’ll have to label the bottles myself.

Look, Don’t Tusk (1021) is a bit unusual in my collection: a whitened, creamy beige with a tinge of khaki. It is certainly a bit reminiscent of the ivory for which it’s named, perhaps with a touch more yellow than I’d have imagined.

Application was a little bit tricky, as pastels tend to be, but overall it wasn’t too bad. Two to three coats gives full and quite even coverage.

I normally shy away from this sort of shade, but there’s something kind of quirky about Look, Don’t Tusk that I dig.

Color Club Professional Nail Lacquer retails for US$8.50 (I’ve rarely seen it in Canada outside of Winners, but never checked the pricing) and is 0.5 fl oz / 15 mL. It is cruelty-free and made in USA.

Color Club is one of the lines produced by Forsythe Cosmetics Group, which was founded in 1979 by husband and wife team Buddy & Harriet Rose. Along with Color Club, the company also makes Art Club, Ruby Wing Color Changing Polish, and private label polishes for distributors and nail salons. The company is based in Freeport, NY, USA.

  1. This reminds me of the OPI You’re So Vain-illa:

    The formula of these types of colours are always so finicky! Glad to hear this one wasn’t terrible – the OPI one wasn’t too bad either.
