Regular readers will know of my love of nail polish, the 1970s, music, and dancing, not necessarily in that order. Color Club has a new spring collection out called Poptastic Pastel Neon, and it’s disco-tastic. Well, no, it isn’t really. It’s pastel. I don’t think you could have a true disco set without a stark white and a jet black, like Tony Manero’s trend-setting suit in Saturday Night Fever (1977).
But I digress.
Poptastic Pastel Neon does appear to have some pretty shades.
There’s also a four-polish mini set of what looks like Hot-Hot-Hot Pants, Disco’s Not Dead, ‘Til The Record Stops, and Meet Me At The Rink for $12.95.
Each full-sized polish is $8.50 at Color Club’s site but can be found for less at other places. Head2ToeBeauty, a fave e-tailer of mine, has the new colors for a screamin’ $3.50 each. You’ll also see two other new sets from Color Club there, the glow-in-the-dark Pastel Neon Remix Collection and the neutrals of Shift Into Neutral Collection.
The names of these polishes are good for some nostalgic chuckles. Remember hot pants? I can remember asking my mother to make me some hot pants when they were all the rage, not knowing at the time that “hot pants” was a euphemism for, shall we say, filled with desire. At the time, I thought the epitome of romance was holding hands.
Just to mention one of the songs referenced in these two Color Club pastel neon sets, Dancing Queen was a massive hit for the Swedish pop group ABBA. You couldn’t turn on a radio in late 1976 without hearing it. So for a blast from the past, tune in to this video for some lip synching and more ’70s hairstyles than you can shake a disco ball at, then have a great weekend!
