Halo Hues Series - Eternal Beauty, Cosmic Fate, & Harp On It

Hi, all! Today I finally have the second post in my Color Club Halo Hues series that I began a million years ago (aka June 9th) for your viewing pleasure. For those of you just joining us, I recently made a super impulsive Amazon purchase and ordered all twelve of the famous Color Club holographic polishes. To justify my recklessness, I am swatching my way through them and sharing them in a series of blog posts.

Click here to catch up on part one of the series, otherwise, onward to holo goodness!

NOTD: China Glaze Gradient & Lumina Lacquer

TGIF, nail babes! Today I wore this summery gradient topped with one of my favorite glitter toppers of all time. It was a fabulous way to celebrate the end of a long work week!

NOTD: Stripes, Studs, and Chevrons

My nail of the day is this girly, simple design that I did on top of a sheer white base.

I started out with four thin coats of OPI - Don't Touch My Tutu, a white crelly polish. Here I've topped it with Sally Hansen Big Matte Topcoat. I absolutely love this polish--it's perfect for a palate cleanser. Using this for the first time in a while,  I realized how much I've improved with using sheer polishes. It really does require practice!

Dainty Digits Polish Swatch & Review

Tonight I have swatches of some polishes by Dainty Digits Polish, a new-to-me indie brand. After a hiatus, Anetress has recently reopened her shop, to the joy of polish addicts everywhere. I was so excited when she reached out to me to review some of her products and promote the store's reopening. I was surprised by the variety that she sent me, and impressed that she has developed the ability to create so many different types of polish so very well!

Polishes provided for review.

Stained Glass Twin Nails

Today I have a fun twin mani that I did with Tracey, also known as @missbellatracey on Instagram.

She suggested we do a neon stained glass mani, so I picked a few neon shades from my collection that would somewhat match her OPI neon set (that I totally covet! Even though they're not technically neon...they're so pretty!) I can't speak for her, but mine are WAY brighter in person, as is often the case with neons. Even with that, I think they both turned out really great!
