Color Club, Ruby Wing, Halo Hues Mega Spam Swatch Post!
Well, I bit the bullet, in my untried stash are many, many Color Club polishes. I buy them because I love them, and they need to be tried! Pour yourself a cuppa, this may take a while.
Kismet: from the second halo hues collection
Two coats, no top coat, good formula, tiny bit dragging and wants to pool a bit in your cuticles, but nothing extreme, and such a gorgeous, glorious soft colour! Love it!
Check out that holographic flame! HOLY MOLY!
Angel Kiss – two coats, no top coat
From the same Halo Hues collection as Kismet, this is a sea foamy green – and not at all silver!
And just as stunning a holo flame!
Ruby Wing Polishes! (these are made by the same company as Color Club, so I’m including them here 😀 )
Tide: 3 coats, no top coat
Multi iridescent glitters in a slightly pink toned transparent base, which turns a lovely reddish jelly in the sun light.
Gypsy : two coats no top coat
I love the indoor colour so much! It just screams summer to me. The grass green change in the sun is pretty, too, but I do prefer the indoor colour.
Slightly slower change than normal, and I found this one a touch streaky, but ooh I love it, and I’m going to have so much fun layering different glitters over it.
Fate: 2 coats, no top coat
Nice formula! Pretty standard mid shade lilac type purple, goes a few shades darker in sunlight. I am a tad underwhelmed. Ah well!
Almost Famous: 2 coats no top coat
Another one where the lid wasn’t quite on and it spilled and thickened up just enough to be annoying.. and it’s another yellow that has done it! Why is there a trend? Anyway, this is very slightly streaky but not too bad, and it got easier after I added some thinner. Lovely bright, bright yellow!
Peppermint Twist: 3 coats, no top coat
Very, very pink. Blue toned pink. But PINKKKKK!!!
A bit streaky, hence the 3 coats, and does dry matte – here it is with top coat 🙂
Chelsea Girl: 3 coats
I’ve wanted this polish for ages, and when the first coat went on so thin and like a instanto nail stain I thought, why?! But, it’s a jelly, opaque in three coats, could use a top coat, but it’s a lovely colour. So, that’s why 😀 Bonus, even though I didn’t have it on long and would definitely recommend a base coat, there doesn’t appear to be any staining on removal 🙂
Soft as Cashmere: 3 coats no top coat
greyed beige crelly – doesn’t sound that appealing, doesn’t look all that appealing on me, though it’s ok. Work appropriate. Safe. Will be a great base for different non-safe glitters 😀
See? with one coat of Kunimitsu One Scary Outfit
Ok, I think we’re at about the half way mark. Need to stretch? Toilet break? Another cuppa? Scroll really fast? I understand 😀
Flair: 2 coats, no top coat
Lovely red/orange with gold shimmer 🙂
Fly With Me: 3 coats no top coat
A completely different colour on my nails than in the bottle! Looks very sparkly swampy green, pretty, yes, but the blue tint/shift isn’t visible at all. Sadness.
But never fear! THIS is two coats (no top coat) over a plain black polish.
This. Yes, this.
Nouveau Vintage: 2 coats no top coat
What a pretty polish! Love the bronze/copper/green shimmers!
Berry and Bright: 2 coats, no top coat
Sparkly deep fuchsia pink in the sunlight, deeper maroon red with subtle gold duochrome shift in the shade. Lovely!
Personal Sylist: 3 coats no top coat
A bit watery, and a tiny bit streaky in effect, because the shimmer makes it almost a chrome. Very lovely blue/purple duochrome, and very shimmery in the sunlight!
By Design: 3 coats no top coat
A little streaky, evens out nicely. A gorgeous muted deep plum purple – very dark, but not black at all!
Glitter Wonderland: 2 coats no top coat
Inside, this is so not my colour 😀 Red toned purples and I just don’t get along. In the sun, however, I’d forgive it anything… wow.
Winter Affair: 2 coats no top coat
Check this out! It’s so beautiful! I am totally in love with this polish. Plus all these fumes are making me very, very happy. Wheeee! Off to get some fresh air, thanks for sticking with me (if, indeed, you have!)
Have a wonderful day with bluebirds and flying purple mini elephants and… ok, definitely fresh air time.
