Color Club Halo Hues Holographic Nail Polish Collection Spring 2013 Swatches and Review


Hey, more holos!  Good ones.  Linear ones.  Holos pretty much speak for themselves, so just soak in the rainbowy goodness of the Color Club Halo Hues collection:


Color Club Angel Kiss.



Color Club Beyond.



Color Club Blue Heaven.



Color Club Cherubic.



Color Club Cloud Nine.



Color Club Cosmic Fate.



Color Club Eternal Beauty.



 Color Club Halographic.



 Color Club Harp On It.



 Color Club Kismet.
 


 
 Color Club Miss Bliss.




 Color Club Over The Moon.


The formula on these was very good.  Some of the older linear holographic polishes had huge problems with streaking and bald spots when not used with an Aqua Base-type basecoat, but these do not have that problem at all.  They apply evenly without bald spots, streaks, running, pooling, excessively thin formula or sheerness, or really any noticeable problem.  Some colors apply easier than others, but overall I'm pleased with the application.  I'm also happy about how long they wear; the past few times I've worn these has been without any base or topcoat and each one lasted almost a week without chipping.  Usually the stronger the holo, the faster it chips, but I didn't have that problem with these.  Fast dry time, as expected.  Zero complaints in the formula department.  Opaque at two coats, which is what I'm wearing here.

Topcoat does seem to dull the holographic look a little, but it gradually returns to full strength the longer you wear it.  I don't wear base coat or top coat with these, though- they don't seem to need it for wear, dry time or shine.

One thing I like about some of these is the intensity of the base color.  Angel Kiss and Miss Bliss are two good examples of a colorful holo that's not overly faded or silvery-looking.  Not all the shades have saturated, colorful bases, but they all still have a very strong linear holographic effect.

You may have noticed that there's a black holo in this collection.  It's good.  It's better than Revvvolution.  I don't like it quite as much as my beloved OPI My Private Jet, but it is one of the better black holographic polishes I've come across.  Good formula, reasonably and affordably priced and easy to obtain.  I'd pick it up if you are a fan of black holos.

The price of these varies depending on where you get them from.  I paid $8 each for mine at 8ty8beauty, but I just saw them on clearance at Meijer for $3.50 a bottle.  Much cheaper than pretty much any other full-sized holo polish on the market right now.

  10. I was more impressed by these than I was the new China Glaze Holo collection. A friend sent me Over the Moon and I could NOT stop staring at my nails! Great swatches!

  11. Beautiful swatches! I just had Cloud Nine on my nails for the last week - the formula and wear are great! No fussing around with application or needing a top coat. The only problem is deciding what color to wear next, they are all so gorgeous.

  22. Okay, I hate to use the phrase 'life-changing' for nail polish, but I LOVE LOVE this polish. I got Cosmic Fate and Miss Bliss on Ebay for $16ish including shipping total for the 2. These are gorgeous in bright sunlight!! They have so much going on - the rainbow effect, the holo shift, etc. Thanks for turning me on to these - think I will go ahead and order Eternal Beauty. Always thought nothing could be OPI designer series. It would be nice if they had some deeper pink/red shades. They go on so well and last also :) Long time lurker - love your blog.
