Color Club Show Time Nail Lacquer
Color Club Show Time Nail Lacquer

Baby, It’s Show Time!

Color Club Show Time Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark gray metallic.” It’s a rich, dark charcoal gray-black with silver-gray and icy teal shimmer. It’s close to being black, but there’s enough lightness in it that when paired with the gray shimmer, makes it look not-quite-black. Chanel Storm is a bit lighter and the shimmer is much more subdued. Nubar Midnight is matte in finish, and it has a lighter gray base color.  Neither is all that similar to Show Time, though.

It’s opaque in two coats, and the formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, so I didn’t have any trouble applying it.  The polish flowed evenly across the nail without streaking or bubbling.  It dried down in about the average time, but it’s forgiving if you start applying the second coat while the first is still drying down.  I typically get a week of wear out of Color Club’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.

Almost black but not quite, Show Time is still dramatic and interesting. Even though it's metallic, you really don't see any brush strokes, which is quite the feat.

  1. Yellowlantern

    These sorts of shades are always eye catching to me. I like that this is a dark grey rather than black.

  2. This would look AMAZING with a matte topcoat.

    • I just bought this today (before even seeing this review) and I’ve already tested it w/Matte-ified and it looks soooo good! Like the sexiest stone on the beach, lol.

  3. It looks a little bit like caviar to me. It makes nails looks very exclusive.

  4. Ahh another GORGEOUS black with shimmer. I’ve been loving these–and this one is unique in that it’s not just a silver shimmer. I like it!

  5. I feel like I’ve seen quite a few of these sorts of shades recently, but I really like them. It’s like sophisticated glitter.

  6. This is really really pretty, but color club usually chips SO quickly on me. Like within an hour of applying it…I guess I’ll just admire this one from afar hahahaha.

  8. This polish is lovely! Definitely a must-have!
