After the first of the year, I’m always in the mood for news about spring polishes. I love snow in December and Christmas and all that jazz, but in January I start wishing for less snow and cold and looking for that extra minute or two of daylight we get as we move towards spring.
Color Club has had a new collection announced for quite some time now but I didn’t want to mention it ’til I was in more of a spring mood. It’s Ticket to Paradise.
The marketing blurb on Color Club’s page says, “Travel to where the palm trees grow, where the breeze is warm, and the sun is shining. Pair shades together for a tropical gradient, or where [sic] alone for a semi-matte beach glass finish.”
There’s a mini-set of Ticket to Paradise that looks like a good variety of colors, and also the colors look slightly different from those above, much darker.
Blogger The Nail Polish Challenge has swatches of all seven and they look lovely. Most have a jelly texture and a slight shimmer. Check out her beautiful nails HERE. Further proof that short nails can be fashionable and fantastic! I’m still searching for a perfect peach, and Tiny Umbrella might be it.
Each polish is $8.50 at Color Club’s web site but only $3.25 each at e-tailer Head2ToeBeauty.
The title of my post comes, of course, from the 1978 rock single, “Two Tickets to Paradise” by Eddie Money. Catch a live version here and dig that ’70s shag hair:

This song was famously spoofed by Mr. Money himself (real name Eddie Mahoney) in this 2012 Geico commercial:
Have a great weekend!
