NOTD -- Color Club Mod in Manhattan

Hey everyone! Today I have a Birchbox exclusive Color Club polish to share with you! It's called Mod in Manhattan and is part of their 4-piece Wanderlust collection. I've received 2 of the other mini polishes in my last 2 Birchboxes (London Calling and Reign in Spain), but they weren't the two out of the collection that I particularly cared for. While doing some shopping on their website, I came across an option to get a bottle of Mod in Manhattan and a Twistband headband added to my order for free and I couldn't pass that up!

Mod in Manhattan is an off-white cream that leans slightly more yellow than it looks in my picture. It's got great opacity and self-levels well with two coats. Pictured is two coats with top coat.

The only downside to this shade is that it's very unforgiving so your clean up and edging had better be immaculate. You can see where I didn't quite get it all off right at my cuticle on my index and middle fingers and it makes my cuticles look extremely dry.. It's not noticeable at all in real life, but photography shows every flaw! Oops!

Still, I'm glad I finally got a chance to try this polish. It's very sophisticated, clean, and fun. Perfect for spring and summer, and actually manages to make me look a bit tan! That makes it full of epic win in my book!


  1. im loving these sorts of shades right now!

  2. OMG ME TOO!! It would make a great base for nail art, as well. I wish they made full-size bottles of it, but I'm sure there are like a million and one dupes/similar shades if I took the time to look. :)

  3. I love pinks like this and this one looks so perfectly chic on you!

  4. I have been hunting for the London Calling color - any chance you might want to sell it? :)

  5. Well, you can buy the whole set here for $8:

    Or if you just want the one I have, I'd do $2+$2 shipping.. so $4 total? If you're interested, shoot me an email @ :)

  6. im interested in this color.may i buy it from you?
