Linear holographic nail polishes have been my obsession for many years, especially during the summertime. My favorite holographic nail polishes are the Color Club Halo Hues. There are twelve Color Club Halo Hues polishes in total, six released in 2012 and the other six in 2013. These nail polishes make your nails look like
a rainbow, a glittery hippy tie-dye shirt, crushed diamonds, a fabulous unicorn that has taken LSD and barfed on your nails. I’m going to show you swatches of the Halo Hues 2012 collection.
I have all the nail polishes of the Color Club Halo Hues 2012 collection, the colours shown from left to right are: Angel Kiss, Blue Heaven, Cloud Nine, Halo-Graphic, Cherubic and Harp on it. I’ve purchased these polishes during their original release in 2012, Color Club has changed it’s logo and bottle so I don’t know if the brush also has changed, so I won’t go in detail on that in this review.
Below are the swatches of these nail polishes. I’ve used two coats for all swatches, the first photo is taken indoors, the second and third photo’s are taken in direct sunlight.
Angel Kiss is a green-ish blue linear holographic nail polish. Two to three coats are enough for full opacity. I love shades like these,it reminds me of the sea, especially when it’s glistening like this polish.
Blue Heaven is a light blue linear holographic nail polish. Again, two to three coats should be enough for full opacity. The name matches the nail polish perfectly, since it looks like a beautiful blue sky (with lots of holographic glitters 😉 ).
Color Club – Cloud Nine
Cloud Nine is a light cool-toned pink linear holographic nail polish. As you can see from the swatches, two coats are not enough for a full opacity, three coats should be enough. This is a light, sweet and almost neutral shade.
Halo-Graphic is a light violet/pink linear holographic nail polish. This shade is similar to Cloud Nine, only more intense. Two layers should also be fine for full opacity.
Cherubic is a light, sand/nude linear holographic nail polish. This is another light shade that would be full opaque if you use three coats. This is a great shade if you like neutral colours.
Harp on it is a silver holographic nail polish. Just like the other lighter shades, it needs three coats for full opacity. Silver is the most used shade when in comes to holographic nail polishes. Every company that has a holographic polish, has at least a silver one. This one is in my opinion the best that I’ve tried. I’ve tried six silver holographic nail polishes from different brands that I can think of; this one from Color Club, China Glaze, OPI, HEMA, FNUG and GOSH. If you want me to do a comparison, let me know in the comments below.
Just.. ughh.. I.. just.. can’t. . Just LOOK AT THE SWATCHES. LOOK AT THEM! The holographic effect is so extremely strong in these polishes. You don’t need a base coat, there is no staining and it doesn’t decrease or increase the holographic effect. Also, top coats do not decrease or increase the holographic effect, so you can use whatever you want with these babies. They also dry rather quickly, if you work with thin layers, you can immediately apply a second layer after you did all your nails. The only downside that I can think of is that the holographic effect is less to none apparent in the shade. It still looks amazing in artificial light though! You get the best result in direct sunlight, which is why I love to wear these during the summertime. The Color Club Halo Hues are available at Prettypolish.nl for €9.95 Euro. I will also review the Color Club Halo Hues 2013 collection very soon!
