Color Club 2013 Halo Hues

Tuesday, February 26, 2013
So you should know by now that holographic is my favorite finish of polish. When the first set of Color Club Halo Hues came out last year, I was impressed by the how holographic they looked in photos but not wowed by the color choice. For some reason, the colors looked really blah to me (probably because I don't dig pinks and magentas and already have plenty of silvers). However when the 2013 set come out (you'll have to excuse my language here), I went apeshit. The colors were stunning and I wanted them all.

I've tried to explain to Morgan the appeal of holographic polishes. I've tried to point out the rainbow effect. I've followed him around our place thrusting my iPad at him, trying to get him to look at pictures of different holographic polishes and how they were different. And how I needed them all. Well I for Valentine's Day he ordered the whole Halo Hues set as a part of my present (and I suspect that the mesmerizing rainbows would shut me up).

Miss Bliss. Two coats. It could really be a one coater but I did two because my nails are not perfectly smooth. Pink may not be my favorite color, but the holo in this one is particularly strong so all is forgiven.

Cosmic Fate. Perhaps my favorite. A coppery orange halo! Also two coats. Strong halo effect.

Kismet. A light green holo. Reminds me of China Glaze L8R G8R, I'll have to pull my swatch sticks out to compare. Relative to this whole set, one of the lesser intense holos. Three coats.

Over The Moon. Two coats. Vivid blue holo. Similar to Glitter Gal Bondi Blue.

Eternal Beauty. Gah. I don't even have words for this. Two coats, utter perfection. I love that it is more blue based than my other purple holos.

 Beyond. Two coats, but could be a one coater. Strong black holo but the least holo-y out of the bunch. It's not a plain black, if you look at the area where sunlight is hitting the nail directly (and on the bottle), you'll observe fine bronze shimmer.

 So relative to each other, Miss Bliss and Cosmic Fate are the most holo while Beyond and Kismet are the least. However, compared to other linear holos these are fantastical. The majority of them are so intense that indoors under indirect light the rainbow can still be seen. The formula on these was excellent. Smooth and glossy, not that matte formula that some holos have that can skip during application. Everything about this set of holos makes me want to dance and sing. Thankfully for Morgan, I'll just sit here and admire the rainbows on my nails quietly in the corner.

These were purchased from Enospring back when they were $39, they went up to $40. Free shipping though, and it was dispatched very quickly.

Do you have any of the new Color Club Halo Hues?
