Spotted, Hauled...a couple, & Swatched - Color Club Girl About Town and Harlem Nights

**all items purchased by me

I thought today I'd share the few polishes that I bought from the 2 most recent Color Club collections - Girl About Town (Fall 2013) and Harlem Nights (Winter/Holiday 2013).  Since I am trying to be better about buying only the really unique polishes - not full collections, believe it or not - I only have 3 polishes total from those 2 collections.  I purchased all 3 one at a time.

First up, let's see the Girl About Town polishes.  Unfortunately, I don't have a display picture for this one.
I bought Williamsburg first (The Uptown was sold out that day), then a week or so later bought The Uptown since it had been restocked.  I bought these 2 from the local supply store.

Now let's see the one I bought from Harlem Nights.  I bought this one from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Sugar Rays, Poetic Hues, Apollo Silver, Baldwin Blues, Lady Holiday, Savoy Nights

I bought Savoy Nights.

And of course, swatches:
Williamsburg, The Uptown, Savoy Nights

Savoy Nights (my red top is being reflected :-P), The Uptown, Williamsburg 

~Williamsburg is a gorgeous dark navy packed with glowing blue shimmers.  2 coats
~The Uptown is a sheer purple jelly filled with multi-reflective (opalescent) flakies.  3 coats, so best for layering
~Savoy Nights is a clear base with silver hex glitters and loads of tiny silvery-sky blue micro shimmer. 1 coat plus a little extra dabbed on for evenness.  I did hold this up to the A Stroke of Brilliance from Essie while at the store, and they are different (I should do a post on this).

Have you purchased any Color Club polishes lately?  What would you layer Savoy Nights or The Uptown over?
