First Friday of Summer, y’all! YAAAAAAAS!
Wednesday, as I was wrapping up my post and making sure the related links were what I wanted, I came to a terrible realization. I had neglected to post my third and current favorite from Color Club’s 2013 Halo Hues. Yesterday was cloudy and dreary, so today I got up a little (too) early to catch some sunshine before the inevitable arrival of scattered/isolated/possibly severe storms. It was so worth it.
Halo-graphic is the PINK beauty of the of the 2013 collection and I’m obsessed. It feels girly and flashy and fun and it makes me happy. I got full coverage in ONE COAT but went ahead and used two just in case the camera decided to whip out its stealth visible nail line detector – it is so good at that. I really like that holographics dry so quickly – I’d recommend a top coat but it’s not necessary and I didn’t use one for my swatches.
Luckily, the Halo Hues are more readily available than Revvvolution. If you’re an Amazoner, you can get some pretty good deals in the $8.00 – $9.00 range. On the Color Club website you can snag polishes from both the older and new Halo Hues collections for $10.00.
I hope your day is as fun as my nail polish. Pictures below!

I’m sitting here avoiding the last episode of OITNB – so I decided to pop in and say hi :). It is OFFICIALLY summer. I’m so excited! I chose Revvvolution for my last day of school fun mani, but then we had some crazy storms and most of the Richmond metro area was without power […] Continue reading →
As much as part of me hates to admit it, I can’t stop picking up these Kylie x SinfulColors polishes. They’re cute, the price is right, and they are everywhere. There are a handful of collections: First up is King Kylie: Precious Metals & Crown Jewels. All of the King Kylie polishes are part of the SinfulShine line […] Continue reading →
My friends! Surprise! I’m back & for very good reason. Tonight is the premiere of Game of Thrones Season Six. Tell me you’re as excited as I am? Today, I’ve been totally nerding out – I’ve listened to Game of Thrones podcasts, I’m currently rewatching the season 5 finale, and I’m feeling major regret for not […] Continue reading →
I do believe spring is here. To stay. At least in Charlotte. There are even a few flowers blooming. Of course that means it’s time for the essie Resort Collection. Historically the Resort collection is my favorite essie collection of the year. So I went ahead and ordered the mini set so I could try […] Continue reading →
Yessss. It’s bound to be a great day since… it’s a in every four years kind of day. Honestly, I think it’d be more fun to let the season slowly shift over hundreds of years, but if it makes everyone else’s world make sense – who am I to argue. Do you guys even know […] Continue reading →

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you’re doing something that makes you happy. Here at The Daily Varnish, we’re big fans of the Salon Effects. I’d buy them more often if they weren’t usually in the $10 range. A few weeks ago I shared the Sally Hanson display at my local Walgreen’s that had several of the […] Continue reading →
I mentioned in my post on essie Cabana Boy that the beauty section at my local CVS was going under a bit of an overhaul. Well, one of the things they added was the new 1 Step WonderGel line to the existing wet n wild display. For the longest time I was a huge fan […] Continue reading →
YAY! It’s time! OPI Spring/Summer 2016 Collection! I’m in love with the idea of OPI’s New Orleans collection. You see, I’d never been to New Orleans until a few years ago when I went for a long weekend with my not-any-more-boyfriend. I had an amazing time. I really did. New Orleans absolutely swept me off my feet. If I didn’t love […] Continue reading →
