Color Club Backstage Pass - $ave your Money!

I don’t like this collection.  Which is sad, because when I saw the previews I thought it would be awesome.  I think the concept of this collection was fabulous, but the execution was lacking.  Almost all of the polishes were hard to apply, and most of them didn’t dry well either.  In fact I felt so dejected by the process it was all I could do to finish swatching.

The Backstage Pass Collection includes:
Take the Stage: Gold Glitter with Silver Flakes
Wish Upon a Rock-Star: Multi-colored Glitter with Purple
Backstage Pass: Silver & Purple Hex Glitter
Platinum Record: Silver Glitter
It's a Hit!: Purple Big Glitter
Fame & Fortune: Red Base with Silver Flakes

The ones I likedTake the Stage, Wish Upon a Rock-Star (the largest glitter amongst the smaller glitter is eye-pleasing, and these dried ok)

Take it or leave itPlatinum Record (do you need another silver glitter?)

SkipBackstage Pass, It’s a Hit, Fame & Fortune (the first two are simply too big to lay properly and were a disaster to apply, the later would be awesome if it were a traditional flakie and not shards of glass)
