Just in time for Summer Manhattan Cosmetics released a limited edition called Club Nights. This collection consists of 6 colorful creme shades, 5 sparkly glitters and two special effects top coat that will be available in the end of May for approx. 4 weeks - so grab them while you can!
Out of the six creme shades I have Flashy Sunrise and Coral Clubbeat for you. Flashy Sunrise is a medium orange shade. This is one of those colors that is hard to pull off with my pale skin tone. So I used Coral Clubbeat, a bright coral color that is right up my alley, as a base and added dots and stripes with Flashy Sunrise.

The formula of Coral Clubbeat was good, two easy coats and everything was nice and even. Flashy Sunrise is pigmented enough to cover completely with just one swipe of your striping brush. As a final step I applied one coat of the Reflect Effect top coat. This iridescent shimmer top coat appeared pretty dense in the bottle and I was worried that it might obscure the base color too much. Luckily, one coat adds a good amount of shimmer without changing the underlying polish. I noticed this drying a bit dull, so you should apply a regular top coat on top.
The Manhattan Club Nights LE also features a fluorescent top coat that is supposed to glow under blacklight. In the bottle it is a simple clear, quite liquidy top coat that does not change the color of your base. Since I don't have a blacklight at home, I ommitted swatches of this polish. I might have to go clubbing again soon just to see the effect of this topper :D
Wishing you a great day and thank you for stopping by!
