Hard to Find Friday: Color Club The Uptown

Wow, November has already flown by, it's already the 21nd.  Thanksgiving is next week then the holiday crunch starts.  Family, presents, and food galore!  Also holiday nail art.  That will be coming up soon too, so that's something to be excited for. :-P

For today's Hard to Find Friday I have Color Club's The Uptown.  If you may not have already seen the panic, Color Club recently changed the formula for this.  They said that they no longer had access to the flakes in this polish so it was replaced with glitter.  This is the original formula.

The Uptown is a purple jelly base with flakes that shift from yellow, orange, and green.  Let's just be honest here, The Uptown is one of my top five mainstream polishes.  The others would be Zoya's Dream and Odette, OPI Affair in Red Square, and Essie Wicked.

On my pointer and middle fingers I painted two coats and on the rest of my finger I painted one coat on top of Julep's Josephine, which is a dark, dusty navy blue cream.  I'm glad that The Uptown was able to be opaque in two coats, but my favorite way to wear it is a single coat over a dark color.  I feel the flakes pop a lot more and you can tell the shift better.  In the purple jelly they almost disappear.  The flakes are plentiful and are evenly dispersed.  I say if you can find it for a not ridiculous price, do it immediately.

As the usual kind reminder, these products were purchased with my own money.  I am not cool enough to have companies send me free stuff to review them. ;)


  1. Yassss I am one of the unlucky ones who purchased Uptown AFTER the reformulation... always in a look out for the original version though! ;)

    1. I only ever managed to snag a mini bottle of it. I'm still hoping that one day I'll find a full sized one in the back of a row at my nail supply shop. :-P
