Color Club: Love Tahiry Collection - Swatches & Review

Hey guys! I hope everyone has had a great week. It's Friday, YAY! I'm so happy and totally ready for the weekend. Mostly for Saturday cause, you know, Valentine's Day. I have a surprise for my boyfriend and I hope he really likes it! This year will mark our 6th year anniversary so I'm so happy and excited to that too! Speaking of Valentine's Day, I have a perfect Color Club collection just for the occasion, check out all the details below.

I saw this collection at the ISSE in Long Beach cause I also had no idea about it. Color Club's new Love Tahiry Collection is inspired by Tahiry Jose, a reality star, model, and actress. This whole collection is scented and let me tell you, they smell wonderful! The collection consists of 7 new shades, 5 cremes and 2 glitters. I think it's so perfect for Valentine's Day! The colors are so pretty!

Seal it With A kiss is light pink creme with a strawberry scent. I used 2 coats, no top coat. It's definitely one of my favorite polishes from the collection. The formula is so smooth, and the scent is so yummy. It's not super strong, you kinda have to hold your fingers up against your nose to smell it.

50 Shades Of Love is glitter topper with red and white/ivory hearts in a clear base with a candy scent. Well first off, you really need to fish the glitters out. Second, there's a lot of the clear base so if you're not careful when applying this, you'll have a s*** load of bubbles on your nails. But that's not the worse part, because you can easily just scoop some of them out with the brush and place them where you want. The worse part is that the red hearts are ALL scratched up in the bottle so you can' even use all of the hearts. You have to find a heart that doesn't have any scratches to actually use, unless you don't care about the white lines. On top of that, all of the red coloring that's falling off of the hearts is just floating around in the base. So if you just apply this polish regularly, instead of using glitter placement, then you'll get a bunch of red bits on your nail.

I just don't understand why they would just release this polish like this. I mean, don't they test their polishes? It's funny cause even their promo pictures can be seen with red bits and scratches. Just look closely here. Another thing that I didn't like was that you can't even smell it really because I used glitter placement for my swatch so there isn't a lot of base with it. I wore this over Seal It With A Kiss and KB Shimmer Ice Queen. This look was inspired by Nail That Accent.

Sweet Getaway is bright neon pink creme with a pink rose scent. I wore 2 coats, no top coat. The scent in this is to die for! It smells sooo good! And it's actually pretty strong so just by wearing it, I would get whiffs of it! The formula and application was flawless! So smooth! It's so bright too, my camera was going crazy. I tried to capture it as color accurate as possible. Love it!

Red-Handed is perfect red with a cinnamon scent. I wore 2 coats, no top coat. Red-Handed smelled really delicious too but the scent wasn't too strong. The formula was amazing though, so if you don't have this shade of red, get it!

Tall, Dark, & Handsome is cool grey with a cologne scent. I wore two coats, no top coat. Again, another creme with a flawless formula. I'm not too sure I like the scent. It's perfect for the name and color, but it's a bit too masculine for me. It does smell good and it's not too strong, but I don't know if I want to be smelling that all day.

On Cloud Nine is a white creme with a white chocolate scent. I wore 2 coats, no top coat. This scent was just too sweet for me. I mean I like it, but it was so strong and overwhelming, like even my room smelled like this. Even after I removed it and applied another polish, I could still smell it around my cuticles. If you like sweet smells, then this is for you. No complaints on the formula though, it was so smooth.

Jitters is silver holo and light pink micro glitter with a bubbly scent. I wore 3 coats with top coat. I love, love, love micro glitter polishes! And this is no exception. I like the shade of pink, with the holo, it's just perfect for Valentine's Day! It went on great with no bald spots. I wasn't too sure about the scent though, I think by bubbly they meant kind of like a soapy scent. 

No top coat
Overall, I do like this collection. I like that it's scented because I don't have may of those. The formula was amazing except on 50 Shades of Love. (What do you do in this situation? Contact them? I remember when OPI released their Oz collection, they did give refunds for their taco glitter. I don't even know Color Club's email so if you have any info, please let me know down below!) I do recommend getting some of these unless yo already have shades like these or if you don't care for the scented part. These are available for purchase at


  1. These are nice. Some pretty cremes with some nice glitters thrown in.

  2. i like that tall, dark, and handsome isn't the tradition valentine's day collection shade.
    but i could never get into the the scented nail polish thing. I always wonder what the point is. i never just sit around sniffing my nails. lol

    1. I was surprised that I liked it too. I'm not a huge fan of grey. Lol I totally get what you mean! But it def made me realize how much I do touch my face. They do smell pretty good though.

  3. your swatches are so amazing! I love your nails!
