Quickie swatch - My picks from the Color Club 2013 Halo Hues collection

I first saw swatches of the new Halo Hues colors on Sheila's blog. Honestly, I had no clue that Color Club was coming out with a new holo collection. While I was looking for more swatches, I saw that they had inadvertently sent polishes out to some distributors. So, I did what any good polish fiend would do and I hunted those suckers down!

Unlike a polish fiend, I thought, "Pam, you already have a blue and a pink holo from the last collection, so don't get those." I was probably feverish, but I only bought the four you see below.

The formula is smooth and easy like the last set. Beyond was rather thick, but workable. As you can see, a quick dry top coat (Essie Good To Go) didn't dull the holo whatsoever. 


I couldn't pick just one, so I did a skittles mani. L-R: Eternal Beauty, Kismet, Beyond, and Cosmic Fate. 2 coats with top coat.

What do you think? Did you get any of the 2012 Halo Hues? Are you getting any of the new ones?

    1. They are! I'm such a sucker for a holo that doesn't require special base coats.

  2. I can't pick just one either.

    1. Eternal Beauty and Beyond are my favorites of the four I picked. I just had to get them all on my nails ASAP!

  3. So funny! I accidentally came across these last night while I was looking for some China Glaze, and immediately sent you a note on Pinterest! And then ordered all six ;-) Some of the colors are dupes for me, but the formula is so great I think they'll be replacing the similar-colored Laylas.

    I wonder if we can hope that these types of collections will become a regular event with Color Club?

    1. I saw your note on Pinterest and that reminded me that this post was in my drafts folder. Thanks! I ordered some Laylas right before I got the last set, and I haven't been tempted to try them at all.

      I hope this set doesn't feel the need to tour Chicago like your last one, and I hope Color Club does continue with the holos!
