Color Club’s It’s A Mystery

Color Club’s It’s A Mystery

Posted on Wednesday, at

I love being able to get these richer-toned holographic polishes. This one is similar to Eternal Beauty from the second wave of Halo Hues polishes, but the base coat is a little warmer and the particles are a mix of sizes - like all of the Hello Holo polishes - so it’s a smoother sparkle finish. Formula performance is standard Color Club holographic: full coverage in two coats, excellent self-leveling, good durability, and requires a bit more work to...

CND’s Vinylux Nauti Nautical collection

CND’s Vinylux Nauti Nautical collection

Posted on Tuesday, at

I understand that coming up with collection themes isn’t easy…but “Nauti”? It sounds like a company trying to be edgier but not too “bad girl.” (Or just…trying really hard for a rhyme and not really hitting the mark.) By the time this collection came out, I was very nearly done (for this year) with these colors. I opted not to get the pastel purple Get Nauti or the orange-red Hot or Knot. I do love the blue...

My Pretty Zombie’s Unicorns, I’m Over It collection

A-YUP! I’m not over the concepts of unicorns (or mermaids), but I’m definitely over every third product launch being unicorn- or mermaid-themed. As with most of MPZ’s collections like this, I nabbed the eyeshadows and left the lip and nail colors. They’re very rich colors, highly saturated, all with shimmer finishes.

I have a few other deep browns with a colored shimmer layer - but those shimmer layers are more green, or more blue. I like having multiple options, though! When I use this one as an eyeshadow the shimmer layer can be buffed away a bit easily, so I have to be more cautious with my blending. The color itself gives me full coverage, no thin spots.

When I started shopping Notoriously Morbid, this was the last eyeshadow from this collection still available in loose powder form. It’s less “aged gold” for me, and a bit more “gilded brown”. The color applies easily enough, and while it can blend, it’s got a bit of blackening that makes it able to kind of easily overpower lighter colors if I’m not careful.

Slate blue? Cool grey? Depends on the light, and surrounding colors. I used two coats for the manicure in the photos, and I think that I would have preferred to use three coats - just to finish evening out the polish, and to see if the color would intensify with another layer.

The base shade is a very attractive washed denim blue. The color shift - predominantly red, with gold and green at the edges - is very strong! This isn’t a color shift that will only show up in certain lights. It shows up more strongly in bright sun or under blue light, but you still see the red and gold fairly prominently. I do need to use three coats for full opacity when I don’t use this over...
