Color Club Halo Hues: Eternal Beauty and Beyond

Image
Hello gentle readers. Time to wrap up my Halo Hues miniseries with the final two polishes in this collection. Eternal beauty and Beyond; the deep, dark beauties of this collection. Buckle up, dearies. There are a lot of photographs coming your way. My full review of these polishes is  in this post  if you missed my raving about how fab the quality of these polishes is. This is Eternal Beauty, a rich, glowing purple holo. This is so gorgeous, kids. If you love purple and holo, you need to buy this polish. This swatch is two coats, no top coat and shot in the sun. And last, but certainly not least, we have Beyond. This dark charcoal grey is nearly black and dances with holo goodness. The holo effect isn't quite as strong in this polish as it is in the rest of the collection but it is no less beautiful. This is, as with all of the rest, two coats and no top coat. Just for fun, I topped this swatch with Seche Vite. As you can see, the holo is

Color Club Halo Hues: Miss Bliss and Over the Moon

Hello gentle readers. Today I am showing you two more beautiful Color Club Halo Hues polishes. If you would like to read my review of the formula on these polishes,  clickity-click here  for that and to see the first two. First, let's take a gander at Miss Bliss. This darling raspberry pink holo treat is sweet, girlie and flaming gorgeous. This swatch is two coats, no top coat. These photos were taken in full sun. When my bottle of Miss Bliss arrived on my doorstep it had suffered a bit of a spill in transit. Not a great deal of polish was lost, as you will see in the next two photographs. About the amount for swatches on four nails or so was lost, so not a big deal and the spill was easy to clean up with a little acetone and a couple of cotton rounds. But look at how pretty this stuff is, even spilled on the outside of the bottle. Rainbow holo spill. Here we have Over the Moon. Royal blue. Strong holo. Oh, yeah. Mama like. Mama love. My holo eati

Color Club Halo Hues Kismet and Cosmic Fate: Swatches and Review

Hello gentle readers. I am beginning my Color Club Halo Hues miniseries with Kismet and Cosmic Fate. I decided to do two polishes at a time because I have a lot of photographs of each polish and trying to do all six in one post plus my wordy yap? Hey, even I won't inflict that kind of torture on my gentle readers. The Halo Hues collection from Color Club is a set of six strong linear holographic effect polishes in deep and bright colours. All six of these polishes have a fabulous formula. Smooth, silky, sweetly biddable, they sit right down where they are placed then smooth up the nail with no running, pooling, streaking, dragging or pulling bald spots. I tried to make this polish misbehave and I couldn't. No matter how much I overworked it, it was just perfect, it didn't bubble or clot. No special base coat is needed to use these polishes, no harmful, damaging buffing is required, either. All of these polishes dry in good time. I have swatched all of these p
