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!

essie Cabana Boy

essie Cabana Boy The Daily Varnish My local CVS is going through a bit of an overhaul in the beauty department. They are finally going to start carrying NYX (hooray!) but it seems they got rid of Rimmel. Anyhow, it’s still a work in progress. Remarkably I ran across the essie Retro Revival collection among the mess. There was no display…the […] Continue reading →

OrlyFX Spazmatic

Orly Spazmatic The Daily Varnish This week has just been blah so far. Between being out of town last week, then the over hyped ice storm and the Panthers games this week is just a huge let down. What solves that problem? GLITTER. Of course. Spazmatic was originally released in 2012 and is a really fun glitter. I like the mix […] Continue reading →

Nail Art: Carolina Panthers

Carolina Panthers Manicure The city of Charlotte has lost its collective mind. Charlotte isn’t exactly what I would call a good sports town. But the Carolina Panthers are in the NFC Championship and the buzz around town is amazing. The bars are packed every Sunday and there are Panthers flags on houses and cars. Even though I’d hardly […] Continue reading →

Revlon Sultry

Revlon Sultry The Daily Varnish My local CVS had Valentine’s Day stuff out before Christmas (seriously) but now that it’s the middle of January I’m ready to face the fact that Valentine’s Day is around the corner. I’ve always really liked Valentine’s Day. So, of course, I’ve already made plans. The boy and I are going the Charlotte Symphony for […] Continue reading →

Orly Galaxy FX Milky Way

Orly Galaxy FX Milky Way The Daily Varnish There are 2 things that immediately come to mind when I see ‘Milky Way’. One, is of course, the candy bar. The other is Drops of Jupiter by Train. Seriously…I had that song stuck in my head the entire time I was wearing this polish! Anyhow. Perhaps I should starting thinking about this nail polish […] Continue reading →
