Color Club – Halo-graphic

Color Club - Halographic Bottle (the daily varnish)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!

OPI – Suzi Nails New Orleans

The Daily Varnish: OPI - Suzi Nails New Orleans Collage 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 →
