Color Club Halo Hues Collection 2013

The other day when I went to my nail polish Mecca, the owner shopped with me. Yes, he actually put stuff in my basket. He pulled out all the stuff that wasn’t on display yet to try to tempt me. He actually did not have the Halo Hues out on display but he took them out from behind the counter like an evil polish Jezebel. I instantly wanted them all, but I showed a little self-restraint and only brought home two of the 6 colors because I already have a big collection of holos. The two that I ended up purchasing are two unique colors in my collection, so I was really excited about trying them out. Here are my two picks from the Color Club Halo Hues Collection for 2013.

Color Club Cosmic Fate

I really loved the idea of a nude-type of holo. Is that an oxymoron? Well, this is a nude if it was on crack and meth. Cosmic Fate definitely did not disappoint. It’s a peachy-gold color that looks rather tame in low light but absolute goes nuts in direct light. The first two pictures were taken indoors in my light box and the last one was taken in direct sunlight.

Kismet is what I wished butter london Trustafarian had been. This is like the perfect pale seafoam green holo! I am glad that this has a definite green hue to it because I was afraid it would look like all the other silvery holos that are pretty much everywhere nowadays. So pretty!

Have you picked up any of the new Halo Hues for 2013? If you’re new to holos, I think these are definitely worth it. The formula is really great and you don’t need any of that aqua base nonsense. Let me know what you think of these shades and if you have spotted these in your area. Thanks for the visit, and I’ll talk to you soon!

  1. I got this collection last month but sadly these two didn’t make it safely through shipping. They were broken and spilled all over the other contents in the package. 🙁 Will have to order these two again. They look lovely!

  2. I ho’d out & bought all of the 2013 collection & the 2012’s too from Enospring. lol The 2013’s are the best linear holos I have every used! They still show the linear goodness after the SV dries & I did a braided mani with them & they still showed the linear rainbow across the layerd colors going in dif directions! Definitely worth the effort to add to any polish collection. <3

    1. They really are great quality and they are so smooth. I think that the Layla holos have a stronger holo effect but the formula absolutely sucks on my nails and the holo does die down with topcoat. Now I’m thinking that I should get the rest 2013 polishes. lol

  3. I have this collection and I LOVE Cosmic Fate. It’s definitely my favorite right now. I will be trying Kismet next! Thanks for the swatches 🙂

  4. Haven’t seen these, they are so nice! Really would enjoy a good polish store. Best I have is Sephora & Ulta, which is very low on stock & choices. Both are a long drive & usually not worth it. Your nails look fabulous!

    1. It’s actually 4 main stores that I go to but there are about 20 polish places in that general area. They are all independent beauty supply stores and each of them has different stuff. I could literally spend hours there and not get bored.

  5. I’ve been trying to find these. I know you’re in CA. If you’re in southern CA and don’t mind telling your nail polish mecca, I would love to pick these up. I thought they were all sold out. :O)

    1. I found these at a place called Beauty20 in Garden Grove. HOwever, they have a bigger more expansive place in San Gabriel, CA. They tend to hide stuff so you have to ask them. I think they just don’t have enough counter space since everything is so cramped as it is.

  6. So I’m not a holo whore like some people (haha), but I do really like that peach and the green. Exactly what you hoped Trustafarian would be is the perfect description. I like that these are more pigmented than the first set of halo hues but man, after seeing the Jade holograficos I’m kinda ruined and think all these look washed out. They still look really pretty tho and if I get the chance I may pick them up.

    1. They are gorgeous but I know what you mean. The jades are also super nice but I think the holo looks a little bit different in those…like more grainy? I don’t know if that’s the right word but the holo in the Halo Hues seems more smooth. I love them both.

  7. I’m always a day behind with your blog because I’m in the UK! But I love that first shade, I must try to find something similar- I haven’t seen any holographic shades in any shops here yet. Although I’m probably just not looking in the right places.

    1. Thank you for visiting. 🙂 You get Kiko in the UK, right? They have some pretty great holos and the prices are pretty great! I think it was a limited edition collection that came out last year.

  8. OMG, I am so jealous! Why can’t any of the people at the (limited) nail places here be like that? I try to be friendly to the chicks at Sally’s, but I think they just think I’m weird, hahaha. I want my own “evil polish Jezebel!”
    If that situation happened to me, I would not have been able to restrain myself. The entire collection, not out for sale yet, in my face? Fugghedaboutit.
    I am LOVING that nude one. I only have a Nfu Oh silver holo and Layla Flashback, so I think this would be a good to add to my “neutral holo collection,” hahaha. However, since I don’t have any colors, either, maybe I just need ’em all, hahaha. The holo effect on these is really impressive…better than the new ChG collection, IMO.

    1. Don’t even get me started on the China Glaze “holos” and I use the term holo very loosely. I mean, I think they are pretty but they are definitely NOT true holos. If they had marketed them differently, maybe I would not have been so disappointed. Additionally, they are going to be like $15!!!!! $15 for China Glaze? Methinks not. If I can get them for way cheaper, I will probably get a few but I refuse to pay those prices.

      I’m telling you…my polish peeps at these stores are evil. They will always tempt me with hidden stuff. A guy at another store always pulls out the stuff that he isn’t able to sell yet so I can play with it but he won’t let me buy it!!! What the heck?!?!?!?! It’s torture.

      Anyway, you should totally get some of these. I think they are worth it.

  9. I picked these up too! Actually, I realized I ended up getting all of the 2013 except the pinkish one. I also bought most of the 2012…I’m a halo whore now. I’ve only been able to wear like 2 of them though because new england sucks and theres like no sun here ever unless its in the middle of the day and I’m at work and I didn’t even know it was sunny. For example, when I left my house in the early after noon today and went to Marshalls it was full on an hour later I walk out and it’s completely snowing. All I want to do is wear my holos in the sun!!!!! If this continues I’m moving to Cali…I’m sure my bf would understand because this is a very valid reason.
