Color Club Halo Hues Series - Cherubic & Angel Kiss

I recently picked up my very first Color Club holo in a blog sale, and was instantly entranced by the utter amazingness of Cherubic. Somewhat impulsively and irresponsibly, I immediately ordered ALL of the Color Club Halo Hues, and have decided to share them with you all in an ongoing series of posts. These will be limited in word count, because these polishes really speak for themselves. Also, most polish lovers are already pretty familiar with the collection, so I'm just adding to the global gallery and giving you holo porn to gaze at all night long.

And so, without further ado...

Cherubic is described as an "angelic pink" linear holographic polish. I think it leans more neutral/nude than pink, especially when you put it next to some of the other similar shades in the collection. Photos show two coats with topcoat, taken in direct sunlight.

I don't have as many pictures of this one, as I intended for it to be a quick mani that I wasn't planning on blogging about. Don't worry, I'll make up for this oversight with the others :)

Angel Kiss is a blue-green linear holographic polish. Photos show three thin coats with top coat. Two would have been enough, but my beloved HK Girl Topcoat shrunk this polish, (!!! first time that's ever happened) so another coat was necessary to even out the ridges that appeared as the top coat dried. You can still see some evidence of shrinkage at the tips, but I'm hoping this is just a fluke. Either way, it hardly takes away from the beauty of this shade!

I hope you're as excited about this series as I am! These polishes are so breathtaking in person, and I hope I can approximate their impact in photos as much as possible. These polishes are available through the Color Club website, or if you're cheap like me, you can pick them up with the older labels from this seller on Amazon. I give her five stars for price, quick shipping, and safe packaging!
