Color Club Polishes at TK Maxx

Color Club was a brand I hadn't even heard of, much less tried, until recently, when Karen alerted us to the fact that their nail polishes are now available in Ireland. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for them in the many pharmacies I frequent but to no avail. Good aul TK Maxx to the rescue!  


Mags was in the Blanchardstown branch last week and picked up this set of 6 polishes plus a top coat for the little sum of €9.99. These are full size bottles (15ml each) so this is great value. The set is called Alter Ego Keep it Under Cover and Mags did mention to me that she wasn't sure if these are the actual colours that are supposed to be in this set as other sets in the shop seemed to have been mixed up - some sets had multiples of the same colour, etc. A quick google tells me that it should actually look more like this:

So you can see, people were definitely doing swapsies and making up their own sets. Who's to say you couldn't do the same yourself, but we didn't tell you that. I can't tell for definite as there are no names on the polishes, but I think only two of the colours we got are actually supposed to be in the set. No matter, we got some deadly shades. 



I went to Spain for a week and look how long my nails got! They never, ever grow this long at home. I am taking this as further evidence that I am supposed to be living a life of leisure in a warm climate. Surely it's only a matter of time before I win the Euromillions. 


I'm really impressed with these, they go on smoothly and they're opaque in two coats. Will definitely be looking out for more from the brand. Have you tried Color Club? Have you spotted it on sale around Dublin?

    1. It's really nice, and a good formula too - I usually find pastel greens are really streaky

  2. I love this brand, I only have a few because even in the US they're hard to find, at least for me.

  4. I've never tried Color Club, I've never seen them anywhere! I agree with Emma, I like the mix-n-match set you got. Much nicer colours :) And your nails look amazing!

  5. The greeny/turquoise colour is gorgeous. Great find from TK Maxx. You're dead right that people swap around nail polishes in the sets, I see Stephen's Green have got wise to this and put the polishes into security proof heavy duty pouches.
