Birchbox Color Club Custom Collaboration Swatches and Review!

Good morning my fellow lacquered lovers!  Happy Tuesday!  Just a quick post this morning!  As you may know, the nail polish brand Color Club has been sold on Birchbox for a few months now and they got together to create a special collection!  All of the names are social media related which is so cute!  I was lucky enough to get to go to the Birchbox sample shop during NYFW where we were allowed to pick a few samples and make our very own Birchbox so clearly I got all of the nail polishes!  Also, I'm trying out rounded nails for a bit so here is your first peek at them!  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!

Above:  2 coats of Insta-This

Insta-This is a really fun bright royal blue!  I love how intensely pigmented it is!  It's so bright on the nail, like Nails Inc. Baker Street.  The formula was great, opaque in 2 coats and it didn't stain!

Above:  2 coats of Put a Pin In It

Put a Pin In It is a really pretty rose gold foil.  Unlike other rose gold polishes, you can actually see the pink hint in this one!  I love that it's a warm shade without being a yellow gold.  The formula was great, practically a one coater but I added a second for good measure!

Above:  2 coats of Status Update

Status Update is a deep grey creme that has a lot of green to it.  It's really deep, it almost looks black but has enough grey and green to it to make it not gothic looking.  This is a great fall shade!  The formula was good, opaque in two coats and a lot of pigment.

Above:  3 coats of Tweet Me

Tweet Me is a green based yellow, kind of reminiscent of some of the OPI Shrek colors to me.  Was anyone else expecting the Twitter color to be blue?  That being said, this is definitely a bright color that would work better on someone who isn't as pale as me.  The formula was a bit tricky, I needed three coats to make it even.

All in all, I liked this collection!  I especially liked Insta-This and Put a Pin In It!  For the most part they had a good formula and the names are really cute!  The Birchbox Color Club Custom Collection is available at Birchbox for $8 per bottle.

What did you think of this collection?  Any Must Haves?  Any Dupes?
