Never Go Full Retard- Color Club Rebel Debutante Collection.

The Rebel Debutante Collection has kept Color club just barely from falling off the edge and going "full retard" a la Tropic Thunder my current favorite movie. The formula is better and most polishes are 2 coaters.  There are no stupid glitters, and the color selection except two, one dupe and one monstrosity, is quite good. This collection is also all cremes which makes me very happy. 
  I love this one. Great application and a great nude shade. This was 2 coats.
OH THE HORROR!  What the hell is this?  Oh my god this is so horrifically UGLY.  This was 2 torturous coats.
A pretty light grey. 2 coats, smooth and nice.
 Despite my awful picture this really is a gorgeous dusty red/brown based purple. I love this one. A LOT. 
Glossy classic pink, 2 coats.
Awesome greyish lavender. This applied like butter! Sweet polish.
Super light grey creme. It was nearly a one coater.

Of Color Clubs three new collections, Poptastic, Pardon my French, and Rebel Debutante, this is the one to buy, people. Although it pisses me off that Color Club left the best polish, Gossip Column a gorgeous looking teal, out of the set and you have to buy it separately.  Poptastic is filled with re-promotes from old neon collections, more info on that here.  And, Pardon my French is just plain stupid. But, do keep in mind that one polish from the Rebel Debutante collection is a dupe to another "new" polish.  Twiggie from Poptastic and Rebel debutante from it's namesake collection are the exact same polish.

I'm giving away a brand new set of the Rebel Debutante Collection to one lucky follower to try and redeem myself from giving away the stupid Pardon my French Collection last time. Also because I just like giving stuff away.
Rules for entry are:

1) You must be a follower.
2) You must tell someone else about the giveaway and tell me who you told in the comments.  Blog it, tweet it, email it, link it or speak it, all is fair. Just do not tell your freaking pets, ok.  Don't post and tell me you told your cat or dog and definitely NOT your turtle! 
3) One entry per person.
4) If you would like to tell me your favorite quote from Tropic Thunder, knock yourself out. Mine is, "that smelled just like bologna for some reason".

International readers welcome! Contest ends next Saturday at midnight.

Love, MM

    And good lord there are so many Tropic Thunder quotes that I just love the hell out of.

    "What do YOU mean 'you people'?"
    "A hooker, oh Jesus you killed a hooker!" I need to watch it. Thanks a lot! hehe

  20. Hello, I'm a follower! Your blog is so fun to read because you're rather informal, but you definitely get the job done. :D

    My email address is, and I told my lovely Canadian friend over AIM. :)

  21. Follower Elizabeth aka Lacquered Lizard
    I told the Nail Polish Collectors on Facebook
    Tropic Thunder is one of the very few Ben Stiller movies I love and that is probably because Robert Downey Jr. is in it. My favorite line is spoken by Mr. Downey:
    "I know who I am! I'm a dude playing a dude disgused as another dude!" Not too many people got that when I saw it in the theater but I laughed my ass off!

  22. I love "suck my unit". I totally told my sons girl pal who was impressed with my polish collection. fucking funny stuff.

    I'm a follower too. :)

  23. Hello! Enter me please, I'm a follower and I told my best friend and my mom about your giveaway :D.

    I'd like to enter the giveaway please. I'm a follower and I told my best friend and my mom about it. Haven't seen tropic thunder :(.

  25. I'm a follower. (duh)
    I leave stupid comments all the time.
    I told my husband. He said "ok, thats nice" and that was that. My cats don't care about nail polish because they think it stinks.
    I'm never seen Tropic Thunder, and for a second there, thought it was a brand of sunblock.

  26. I told my husband, who always encourages me to find ways to get free polish! ;D One fave Tropic Thunder quote: "A nutless monkey could do your job. Now go get drunk and take credit at all the parties." walkerjs7920(at)gmail(dot)com

    I blogged about your blog and the giveaway at my blog --

  32. Hi! I love your blog! I told my mom about it. Thanks for the giveaway :]

  33. I'm a follower and linked this page in the right sidebar of my blog:
    No one's home and I have no pets to talk to...
    My mail is
    And I completely agree on Charity Ball :-(

  34. xD I told my friend Jess Zhu, via MSN
    She loves cremes so this is kinda up her alley too ;)
    I love your blog, 'tis a terrific piece of work
    and tropic thunder ruled :P

  35. charity ball is horrendous! I promise if I win i'll give it to someone I really hate. I'll pour it into an opaque bottle like a SH Nail Makeup and they'll be all pysched and I'll just laugh.

    I told all my Facebook friends and my friend Holly who is addicted to polish but only reads ALU. seriously. I've told her about you a few times and she's finally a reader! wooo! I don't have pets but i can tell some woodland creatures? (btw never seen tropic thunder. should I netflix it?)

  36. I told my roommate about this. We found Poptastic and Pardon my French at Ross, but not this one. Lame! I'm actually curious about Charity Ball. It looks different in almost every pic I've seen, but everyone seems to hate it regardless.

    Anyway, thanks for the giveaway!
