I don't know how many of you have seen The Fifth Element but it's an all time favorite in our house. When the heroine (Milla Jovovich) meets the hero (Bruce Willis) she wins him over with those two words...Then goes on to kick serious boo-tay and save the world. What's not to like?

Hopefully those two words work for me too. :)

Here's the sitch. I was at Ross and saw this great collection of Color Club polishes, none of which I had for $7.99. So I think to myself, "Self, 7 full size polishes for $8...Um yeah, you are so not going to find a deal like that at a beauty supply." So I grabbed it and clutched it to my chest all the way to the registers.
So I get home and go sit down at the table and with all the grace of a kid at Christmas tear into the box, only to discover...(GASP) None of the bottles have name lables!!!!!! Nooooooooooooooo!!

How could they not lable the pretty colors and leave them with no names? Not on the container, not on the cardboard holder/insert, not on the bottles. I went onto the Color Club website. but half the swatches they provide look exactly the same and this "collection" isn't listed. I think the blue may be Trippy Hippy but not sure on it.
Here's where I'm hoping my wonderful readers can help me. Have any of you run into this collection and already chased down the colors? Or do any of these jump out at you screaming "I'm such and such color!"
Any assistance offered would be super much appreciated. I'll even put you on my Christmas card list!

Thank you all and until next time take care. Ciao!


  1. I hate how they don't label them!

    On the packages that I got it has the names listed on the back in the same oder they are in located in the box from left to right. Is there a list on the back? I hope this helped :)

  2. I got that too and have made peace with the fact that they will remain nameless... I know, no help, sorry!

  3. *Grumble Grumble* I wonder if I can slip them by onsies and twosies into a supply store for side by side comparison.

  4. everyone keeps finding these packages at their ross! Im so sad I dont have one :(

  5. I can track one or two down if you like. I've been to two Ross's and they've both had them. One had this un-named collection and the Glitter Vixen collection and the other had the both those and an Un-tamed Luxury collection.

  6. Hey Anita, maybe if you went in and asked one of the beauty store clerks to let you compare bottles they might help. That's so weird. Mine too had the list of labels and color codes on the back of the box, which I then transferred to the bottles with making tape and a sharpie. Of course it wasn't this box set. :(

  7. I got the glitter vixen collection as well and the polish names were on the back, it's just this one that is a pain. I think next time I go to the supply store I'll take a couple of bottles with me. I buy enough stuff from him that he can't really complain.


I really do appreciate your comments and I try to respond to all of them either directly via email or here in the comments section if you're set to "no reply".
