Color Club Halo Hues 2013 Eternal Beauty
I picked up four of the new 2013 Color Club Halo Hues at the recent Professional Beauty Show at ExCeL – the black, gold, blue and purple ones.
It was the blue one that I really wanted, but they were so very holographic that I ended up buying four of the six. I don’t know how come I’ve worn this purple one before the blue that I so desperately wanted though!
This is two coats. One coat let a little light through the nail in patches still if I held it up to the light. The photos are without a top coat because I’ve read that a top coat can diminish the holographic effect. However, after I took the photos, I did add a top coat and I don’t think the effect diminishes in any way.
It’s a shame that there’s not much sun at the moment, as I think this polish will look fantastic in the sun. While I wore it, I spent a lot of time inside, under flourescent lighting, which didn’t seem to bring out the holographic nature at all. I was quite disappointed that I couldn’t show it off to anyone.
It was also really difficult to photograph, which surprised me. I thought my lights would easily bring out the holo, but it was only when I tilted my hand away from the light that it showed up well.

Looks very iridescent and opulent. Reminded me of a TVR body paint they had. Love it!
Try shining an LED on it.
Really? You could get whole cars like this? The polish world would be in a frenzy!
My photography lights are these ones: http://www.photosel.co.uk/studio-lighting/continuous-lighting/light-kits/table-top-studio-light-kit-ls12e42t Not sure if those are LED or not, but I got there in the end using those and the (halogen?) spots in my office.
Yes…me luvey!!! Unlike most linear holo polishes, you can top coat the Color Club ones without ruining the holo effect! I used them to do a braided mani recently & the holo rainbow line still showed even tho’ I overlapped 3 colors of polish going in 2 different directions with Seche Vite tc!
Have fun with those gorgeous dahlings! <3
Love the holo!!
P.s. Your website has such a good and clean design, good job!
The holo is fab – I’m a real convert to them now.
Thanks for the comments on the website 🙂
Soo pretty! I’ve just had this delivered, can’t wait to use it 😀
