Color Club’s Oil Slick collection

When this collection first came out, I was not interested. I had multichrome colors that were EXTREMELY similar to the press photos that I saw, and I wasn’t about to plunk down another USD$10 per bottle for these shades. Recently, though, I picked up a bottle of Cash Only…and quickly grabbed as many of the rest of the collection as I could! (Fortunately, I only had to resort to Ebay for one of the polishes.)

These are more along the line of interference (duotone) colors than multichromes. A few edge into multichrome territory, but most of them act like they’ve just got a very strong interference layer so that there appears to be three colors visible when it’s really just two. That said, they’re still attractive.

Color Club’s Oil Slick collection

Two of the polishes - Sorry Not Sorry and Icebreaker - aren't really multichrome, nor even duochrome. Don't Kale My Vibe has the least-visible shift of the other polishes. And Burnt Out and We'll Never Be Royals are both just breathtaking. But Cash Only remains my favorite: a bronze-pewter-copper-chrome metallic shift. All of these polishes were at their most visible and best showing in just two coats...which, alone, puts these polishes head and shoulders above so many of the other multichromes in my collection. (The only polish line that consistently comes close is Polish Me Silly, with their fabulous 2-coat multichromes.)

This collection contained:

  • Burnt Out
  • Cash Only
  • Don't Kale My Vibe
  • Ice Breaker
  • It's Raining Men
  • Sorry Not Sorry
  • We'll Never Be Royals

The collection was re-released in spring 2019. They got rid of It's Raining Men and Icebreaker, and added several new shades. These new shades were also interference colors, for the most part. Just like the original release, there were a few that appeared to have more colorshifting going on. I didn't pick up all of the new shades, but I managed to score several (huzzah for 40%-off and BOGO summer sales!!!) The 2019 lineup contained:

  • Burnt Out
  • Cash Only
  • Don't Kale My Vibe
  • Frost Bite (new)
  • Hooked (new)
  • Karat Cake (new)
  • On The Vine (new)
  • Purple Haze (new)
  • Rhythm and Blues (new)
  • Smooth Move (new)
  • Sorry Not Sorry
  • We'll Never Be Royals
