I have been loving most of the Color Club Mood Changing Polish collection but I am torn on Old Soul. I am not a pink kinda person so that plays into it a little but I just don’t love it. The colors are so similar to the naked eye and the formula is not as good as some of the others in the collection. It shifts from a very light creamy pink to a baby pink. Even taking photos by the AC unit, it shifted back to the paler colour fairly quickly so a low transition point on this one and not enough to make my short tips keep the darker pink.

The transition point requires some icy water to get it to stay pink long enough to take some photos. So the redness in the photos above is less lobster hands from the polish shade and more from the freezing water. I get no natural darker tip shade with Old Soul. The formula is patchy and three thin coats are needed with full dry time in between or you get some patchiness. It also has a slightly chalky look to the color. Not a huge deal as top coat deals with it. The whole collection needs a shiny top coat as they are slightly matte and vulnerable to wear anyway.
