Color Club Scent-Suous Collection

Happy Tuesday Peeps!

Can you believe it’s November already?

So I’m kind of excited about what I have to show you guys today… On Sunday afternoon I stopped by Sally Beauty Supply to pick up a few odds and ends and was super excited to see that they had a ton of new nail polish in stock. I feel like my Sally never gets anything, so it was like Christmas morning! Then I spotted a Color Club display and I was like, hold the freakin’ phone! Since when does Sally carry Color Club?!

In all of my bewilderment and excitement, I didn’t even realize that it was a collection I’d never heard of because the display was half empty. So I just grabbed the pretty purple and green glitter I saw and headed to the register.

Later when I got home I  started looking for swatches of it on the internet and could not figure out why I couldn’t find anything about it. The color I’d picked up was called Sugar Plum Yum and Google kept directing me to the OPI shade of the same name. Then I asked some people on twitter (I’m sure a lot of you thought I was off my rocker ;)) but no one had heard of it. I kept thinking, wtf? What is this? So I went back to Sally to get a better look at the collection and realized it was a new scented holiday collection. I didn’t like the look of all the colors in the bottles, but the nail blogger in me had to snag the whole collection.

So yeah, apparently Color Club has a new holiday collection that no one’s heard of and it’s called Scent-Suous. It’s made up of 6 scented colors; there are 2 metallics/foils, 3 chunky glitters, and one regular glitter. Anyway, let’s get to the pics already…


First up is the lovely that caught my eye: Sugar Plum Yum. This one is medium green and large purple hex glitter suspended in a clear base. I guess it’s supposed to smell like plum, but I don’t really know what plums smell like. It just smells kinda fruity. In the pic below I layered it over 1 coat of Wet ‘n Wild Black Creme.


Next we have another fun, chunky glitter: Very Merry Berry. It’s more chunky hex glitter like Sugar Plum Yum, but in light blue and magenta. There are also some small pieces of silver glitter up in there. It smells like…berries? Again I layered 2 coats of it over Black Creme.


And here’s the last of the chunky glitters: Orna-Minted. This baby is a blingtastic explosion of silver glitter in large hex and small round pieces and it smells like fresh mint. My camera was freaking out on this one because the glitter is so reflective. To me it looks just like Platinum Record from the Backstage Pass collection. This one is also 2 coats layered over Black Creme.


Now on to the half of the collection that I’m not so hot for…

Here’s Santa’s Cinnamon. This is a red glitter a la China Glaze Ruby Pumps. It’s squishy and glittery, and I actually like it more than I thought I would. It was opaque in 2 coats and it smells like those hard, round cinnamon candies in the clear wrappers. Peep it:


Then we have Kiss Me Mistletoe which is a sage-green foil/metallic that smells like pine trees. Ugh, I hate polishes like this because they’re so hard to clean up. Acetone hits them and little shimmer particles start to spread all over my fingers like little baby spiders escaping an egg sac (you like that imagery?). The best part is that it was super pigmented and only needed one coat.


Last, and definitely least in my opinion is Gingerbread Man, a gold metallic/foil. I hate this color on myself, but it does smell pretty close to gingerbread, which I kind of liked. This one was also super pigmented and only required one coat, but I still hate it on myself. Did I mention that I hate it on myself?



So there you have it. The mysterious Scent-Suous collection.

As a whole I’m not totally wowed by it, but those glitters are rockin’ my world. I see many layering possibilities with them in my future.

Have you spotted these at your local Sally? I wonder if they’re Sally’s exclusives. Perplexing.

Any must-haves in the set for you? Let me know what you think of them and have a lovely Tuesday!

  1. I’m really liking Very Merry Berry and Sugar Plum Yum! I have no idea where to get these over here, though 😦 Let the hunt begin!

  2. Breaking news in nail polish! 😀 I’m totally not ready for Christmas stuff yet, but I might have to go snatch up this mystery set before it gets picked over. I have the hardest time finding Color Club in person as it is. Usually at TJ Maxx, with a year delay.

    • I’m not ready for Christmas stuff either but I had to shsare these babies! I don’t usually find Color Clubs either. I normally have to have my brother find them for me in California, so I was way excited to find these!

  3. Oh wow! Sugar Plum Yum looks awesome!

  4. These glitters are awesome!!! I wonder if these will be sold in the sets at Ross or only at Sallys…

  5. I went yesterday, and they’re not here at mine yet. But mine are notoriously slow! I’m so excited they’ll be carrying Color Club, it’s one of my favorite brands. I don’t think I *need* any of these, but I’m still super happy about the news!

    • Me too! I was having a mini freak out when I saw them because I have NEVER seein them in stores cuz there are no Ross’ here and none of the other beauty supply places near me carry them.

  6. I would love if Color Club can to Sally! I always have to order it online! I’m going to make a stop at Sally today to see what I find!

    I actually like the gold on you,lol

  7. I’m so glad I will be getting this collection from a friend in the US!! The foils are not unique indeed but I really wanted them just for the smell lol And the glitters are gorgeous, I love the color combos!

  8. I just bought Sugar Plum Yum and Very Merry Berry today! I was just as shocked and excited to see this stuff in Sally, too! The sales girl was laughing at me… walked out with 6 bottles of polish. Sheesh!

  9. p.s. they really do smell too! I layered Merry Berry over two fingers which already had Adoree Wild Inkberry on them and they look nice!!

  10. That’s so funny because the exact same thing happened to me the other day! I grabbed the same blue and green glitter and bought it and came home wondering what collection it was too LOL… I was actually trying to figure out if it was part of the Backstage pass collection and this led me to your site. Thanks for the swatches and all the info;)

  11. Whoa! The glitters are crazy!! But kinda…awesome 🙂 I have yet to try a Color Club polish, sadly, but I’m hoping for that to change soon!
