color club halo hues- cosmic fate


I went on a bit of a nail polish pause; I just wasn't feeling many of the collections that were coming out. That didn't stop me from browsing though, and when I found myself browsing Nail Polish Canada late one night, I ended up with a few shades in my cart. Oops? One happened to be Color Club Cosmic Fate from their popular Halo Hues collection. The idea of a peachy holo just wasn't something I could pass up. Read on to see why!



'A holographic shade with peach overtones that create an iridescent glow to compete with the cosmos.' - Color Club

Cosmic Fate has a peachy base that shifts to a bronzey- pink depending on the lighting. More importantly it's a linear holo with a crazy amount of flair. Some holos need direct light to really pop, but Cosmic Fate never seems dull. It flares every colour of the rainbow and is simply stunning! It's easy to see why the Halo Hues collection is so popular.

Shown is two coats on bare nails with no top coat. Some holos need a base to apply well- something like NFu Oh Aqua Base- but this applied super easily and smoothly on bare nails. Topcoats can dull the holo finish of some formulas, so I skipped topcoat, so I only got a couple days of wear.

Berry Crush EOTD

Bonus eye of the day! I've been wearing quite neutral shades on my eyes lately, so today I decided to pop a bit of The Body Shop Berry Crush eyeshadow on with my go to neutral look using UD Naked 1. Berry Crush looks crazy bright in the pan, but I love it with neutrals.

If you're looking for amazing holographic polish, Clour Club is your best bet. Not only are the Halo Hues linear holos, they're priced much lower than their holo counterparts. Are you a fan of holos? Which brand/shade is your favourite?
