COLOR CLUB SWATCHES HAUL AND FULL REVIEW

Hey everyone! Today I will be sharing a review and swatches of my newest Color Club polishes that I got from www.enospring.com! They have the latest Color Club Collections including the 2012 & 2013 Halo Hues Collections & the Spring/Summer 2013 Fiesta & Kaleidoscope Collections! At the time of this post they are selling the Halo Hues polishes $7 each (good deal!) and $39 per collection. The Fiesta & Kaleidoscope polishes are $5 each & only $24 per collection! Plus, free shipping in the US over $30 & the shipping was superfast! I decided to get some polishes from a few different collections so that I can compare & share with u!

Since holographic polishes are all the rage as of late, 5 of the polishes I got are holographic polishes from the 2012 & 2013 Halo Hues Collections. All of them applied like a dream! They glided onto my nails smoothly and I didn’t experience any streaking or bubbles. The formula is a great consistency, not too thick, not too thin. I did notice that the polishes from the 2012 Halo Hues Collection seemed a little thicker than the 2013 collection, but both were equally as beautiful & applied effortlessly. And the holographic effects do not go unnoticed! The holo adds such a beautiful dimension to the polish, especially when the light hits it. Each polish shines with a rainbow of color flecks including yellow, blue, green, & red. The formula dried quickly and was easy to remove with polish remover. The polish applied true to color & opaque in just two coats. I actually just applied one coat in my swatches to show you just how pigmented these polishes are. And these swatches are all of the polishes alone, no top coat.

Color Color Cherubic, Halo-Graphic, Harp On It, Cosmic Fate, Kismet, Pearl-Spective

Color Club Kismet (2013 Halo Hues Collection) – It’s interesting because I have seen pics of Kismet on the internet and I was under the impression it was a goldish color, but it’s actually a nice light olive green, though it can appear gold depending on how the light hits it. It’s a beautiful color & has such a beautiful holo effect.

Color Club Cosmic Fate (2013 Halo Hues Collection) – I was nicely surprised by this color & so happy I got it. From pictures I have seen I was afraid it was going to be too orange, but that’s not the case at all. It’s actually a beautiful light coppery shade. Its such a classy shade to me, so similar to one of my favorite eyeshadows from my coastal scentals shimmer palette, minus the holo aspect, which adds such a beautiful shimmery dimension. In dimmer lighting I noticed that it appeared to look like a rosy pink tone.

Color Club Halo-Graphic (2012 Halo Hues Collection) – I would describe this as a rosy pink shade. In some dimmer lighting I noticed this looked almost coppery and reminded me of Cosmic Fate.

Color Club Harp On It (2012 Halo Hues Collection) - A beautiful holographic silver shade. I can see myself using this shade a lot, especially for my accent nails! So pretty!

Color Club Cherubic (2012 Halo Hues Collection) – Such a beautiful shade! I would describe this as a nice champagne shade. Though someone who saw them in person on me thought they were actually silver, which shows the range these shades can appear depending on different lighting. This is one of my faves!

Color Club Pearl-Spective (2013 Kaleidoscope Collection ) – This polish was difficult to swatch on it’s own because it’s actually a sheer pearlescent polish. It adds a beautiful pink/yellow iridescent pearl shimmer to your mani. I really like & can’t wait to do some ombre nails and add this as a top coat cause I think that would look really pretty. I swatched one coat over my bare nail, one coat over Kismet & 2 coats over white nail polish so you can get an idea of what it looks like. The perfect polish to give your manicure a glittery pearl finish.

shimmer that this polish radiates, but it's very pretty in person.

I played around with a couple of these polishes aswell. I added a matte topcoat to Cosmic Fate, which completely omitted the holographic aspect of it, yet it was still an absolutely gorgeous shade.

I tested 2 different glitter polishes over Kismet. On one fingernail I used a regular glitter polish & on another fingernail I tested with a holographic glitter polish. Both looked amazing over Kismet! So much sparkle! I can’t wait to try this with my other holos!

And for those who like to do nail art stamping, I tested these polishes & yes, they all stamp (except for Pearl-Spective). Some, less pigmented than others & they don't show well over black, but look very nice over white! : )

Color Color Halo-Graphic, Kismet, Cosmic Fate, Harp On It, Cherubic

Overall I am very pleased with these polishes. Experiencing the holographic polishes in person has made me want to get the entire collections; they’re just so gorgeous! They apply true to color yet are iridescent in the sense that each polish shade appears to transform depending on different lighting & angles. The holographic effects are noticeable, complex, & multi-dimensional! These polishes are fun to play with aswell! : )

I put together a video of these swatches for all my youtubers. I will also be posting a nail art design featuring these polishes on my blog next week, but you can get a sneak peak if you check out the video below! : )

Nail Mail - Color Club and Sally Hansen Haul

Hey guys! I hope all is well! So I have been thinking lately that I want to expand my blog since I buy/own a lot of beauty products, not just nail stuff, lol. I was thinking to start including some makeup reviews & beauty/nail related hauls. I may do some video hauls aswell. I think to start out I may just do a monthly beauty haul, where I will show you the goodies I picked up over the last month & provide some small reviews. If that's something you are interested in then keep an eye out for those, and for those who aren't, don't worry, I will still be posting daily nail art designs & tutorials. Below is a haul of some nail goodies I picked up during the month of March. I was gonna incorporate my makeup beauty buys aswell, but I didn't wanna make this post too long so I will post that seperately, maybe some time next week.

     I'm just gonna go through a quick run down of everything featured in the pic below. I got my very first XL Squishy Stamper from ebay & I really like it! It has pretty much replaced my Konad double ended stamper. I wish I found out about it sooner! It came with 2 scapers aswell. I won't get too deep about it in this post because I'm planning to publish a full review of it soon so if you're interested then keep an eye out for that! I also ordered a couple practice fingers from ebay, I bought the two together for less then $2 from China. I ordered Essence Manicure Tip Guides from Ulta, only .99 cents. I really like to have french tip stickers on hand for my french tip designs because it just makes it a lot easier to achieve a nice french tip. I picked up some Kiss Brush On Nail Glue from Walgreens because that's another thing I like to have on hand cause unfortunately I'm always breaking my nails, smh. I will be posting a video tutorial on how I repair my nails very soon!
     Now onto the polishes: While I was at Walgreens I picked up Sinful Colors Candy Coated because on my last visit to Walgreens they had a Sinful Colors sale & I picked up most of the Sugar Rush Collection but I accidentally forgot Candy Coated. You can take a look at my Sinful Colors Haul here. Also, while I was there I stumbled across Wet n'Wild's limited edition Coloricon Toppings Collection and couldn't help but to pick one up. I got Sprinkled with Love, haven't got to swatch it yet, but it looks pretty. Now on to Nail Mail: On Monday Walgreens.com had a flash sale and the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Collection was on sale for $2.99 each plus free shipping so I couldn't resist cause I heard these are wonderful for stamping. Plus I had a 20% off coupon and went through ebates so it was a great deal. I got Presto Pink, Lively Lilac and Brisk Blue. Can't wait to stamp with them! Technically I got these April 1, but they came super fast that I just decided to include them in this haul. Lastly, I ordered China Glaze Glistening Snow from ebay. I just couldn't resist picking up this polish before it is gone for good. It's such a beautiful holographic glitter polish & I can't wait to dress up my accent finger with it, lol! : )

Sinful Colors Candy Coated, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri: Presto Pink, Lively Lilac, Brisk Blue, China Glaze Glistening Snow, Wet N Wild Sprinkled With Love

This next pic are my latest Color Club Polishes I picked up from www.enospring.com. I will be posting a full review and swatches of these some time this week! Sooo pretty!!! : )
