Back in January I showed you one of the few linear (rainbow-like) holographic polishes I’ve ever bought, Halo-graphic from Color Club. Let’s see its coppery-peach sister in the Halo Hues line, Cosmic Fate.
Like the pink one I swatched, Cosmic Fate has a great formula and applied smoothly and easily. It self-leveled well and dried to a glossy finish. I used two coats with no top coat. Under indirect outdoor light, it merely looks like a nice peach with silver shimmer, rather neutral on my medium Caucasian skin.
The bottle hints at the holographic look to come. With the flash:
Now it looks like a really bright foil. Let’s take ‘er out in the bright direct sunlight:
Gah! The linear holographic look is so strong that I expect to see unicorns with rainbow-colored manes leaping from the ends of my fingers.
This is a look I wouldn’t wear often but it’s fun once in a while. I think Color Club has the best mass-market linear holos lately. China Glaze tried to get back in the game this past year with their “Hologlam” set but the general reaction to it, from what I could tell, was disappointment.
Color Club’s Halo Hues are $10 each at the company’s web site, a bit steep. The bottle is a full-sized 0.5 oz./15 ml and I bought mine at Head2ToeBeauty.com for $8 when I placed my last order. I was only going to allow myself one of the Halo Hues and it was tough to choose between Cosmic Fate, the purple Eternal Beauty, and the dark gray/black called Beyond. There are also shades of blue, green, and pink.
