POLISHED: Color Club Halo Hues Nail Lacquer in "Kismet"

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

i must have been at Winners for about 2 hours before i was forced to check out my items at closing time - it is amazing how time flies by when you are shopping there! as i rounded the corner and passed by all the items intended to lure you in last minute, i came to a halt in front of some nail polish.

and then, there it was.
sitting there, sparkling and twinkling with all its friends.

it was "Kismet".

hah! i am hilarious.

but no, seriously, i was in love! the Color Club's 2013 Halo Hues Collection has been all over the blogosphere and i've been wondering when i would finally see them in Canada. but alas, i must be smart about my spending! i walked away with only "Kismet" but i am thinking of searching for at least one more... it may be "Cosmic Fate" ;)
"996 Kismet" (15 mL) is a lovely yellow-green holo. this is only my second holo but i haven't seen many in this color before. it applied like a dream - no problems at all and dried quickly. i found the brush very easy to use as well. i also love how resistant it is to damage - i've been wearing it for 2 days with no top coat and there are no chips, dents or scratches. with a lot of the Essie polishes, i see little dents within a couple of hours. i thought the coverage was almost completely opaque at 2 coats but i did 3 just because you cannot get too much of a holo.
i picked this up at Winners for $7.99.

i took a gazillion pictures to capture the beauty of this polish. my hands are in a claw-like pose because i didn't want my thumb to feel left out. please excuse my cuticles! one of them suffered a paper cut recently :(

one coat:

two coats:

three coats:


the Halo Hues Collection can be separated into 2 parts: 6 polishes released in late 2012 and then 6 more this year. the colors released this year seem to be more vibrant and fun :)
check out the first 6 here (2012) and the next 6 (2013).

which ones are on your wishlist?
