Color Club Pucci-Licious

Okay, I have a confession to make. I am a little dispirited. Maybe that's one of the reasons why I haven't posted as much in the last two weeks. You see, I am in love with the Color Club collection "POPtastic." A lot of the colors are NEONS. Wonderful, poptastic neons. But you see, the neons don't love me back. Or rather, they don't love my freaking camera! Wail!

I took loads of pictures of these awesome colors, but I don't want to post them because they are not true to life. Well, the orange "Wham! Pow!" and the yellow "Almost Famous" worked okay in pictures. But the pinks....the pinks! So sad. Sniff!

I think perhaps my favorite in this collection is "Pucci-Licious." I was delighted to see this lovely medium purple. When I tried it on, I noticed it was showing up rather BLUE in my camera indoors. My fingertips were PURPLE. Sigh. Well, I have to admit that this color has a lot of blue in it. Could this be a periwinkle blue? Not quite....blurple?

The application was really nice, so much better than the yellow. The surface was rather matte, with a dull shine, like candle wax, or a "wax matte," as I think of it.

I went out into the sun, and I saw that it did show up rather blue! But wait! My camera decided to portray the color as purple! Ta da! Lol. Okay, well the pictures are fairly decent.

That last picture is in the shade.

So. What's the verdict? I imagine everyone is clicking on the pictures and waiting to hear my final pronouncement on this color. Okay. It's....BLURPLE! Yes, I have decided it has enough blue in it to be called a blurple. It looks purple in the bottle but bluish purple on the nails. And I have to say: I LOVE it! I just adore this charming color. My first blurple. Sigh. Love! I heart Pucci-Licious.

From what I hear of other bloggers, some purples are nearly impossible to capture on camera.
This looks really awesome. It reminds me of that China Glaze Grape Pop that people post. But I could be wrong, I've not seen China Glaze Grape Pop in realy life. :P
