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.
