Color Club 2013 Halo Hues Review & Swatches Plus My First GIVEAWAY ;)

Hey loves,
Exciting post for today - later than usual -.- I have been trying to work Rafflecopter for the first time, I think I have done it LOL!
I got a lovely package from Color Club UK but unfortunately in contained 3 polishes I already own :O fortunately for you loves, Color Club UK have allowed for one of my lovely readers to get a chance to win them! ;)
Stay tuned for the end of this post for all the details :D

Want to know which 3 are on the blog tonight? Plus what you could win?

L-R* Cosmic Fate, Beyond & Over The Moon.

Onto the swatches :)

Up first we have Cosmic Fate - she is a gorgeous orangey/copper peach holo, I was a bit hmmm at first.. I am not one for orange at all. Trying her on though changed my complete view, she is gorgeous! She wasn't as orange on the nail as she seems in the bottle, atleast to me. The holo in her is unbelievable! Flawless application - 2 coats shown with 1 coat of Seche.

*Much more holo IRL - Lightbox pics*
Next up we have Beyond - A stunning black holo, ugh just so delicious!! I love love love this, I am not one for wearing plain black polish but this beauty really takes the harsh look away from the black. Again the holographic is much much more IRL - pics are taken in my lightbox, British weather at its finest. Shown is 2 coats with 1 coat of Seche.

Finally we have Over The Moon - my gosh the sexiest medium blue ever! & the holoness in this is just :O WOW! If you own this, you will know how holo I am talking right now haha, I can't even explain it. I am in love! I used to hateeee blue once upon a time, now I would sit this on right on top of my 'all time favourite blue'! Shown is 2 coats with 1 coat of Seche.

How gorgeous are they! You may recall my 101 Dalmations nail art using Over The Moon? Check out a quick image below :)

You can buy these at Color Club Uk website here, prices for the Halo Hues 2013 are £6.49, they also have alot of other Color Club polishes starting at £5.00.
Onto the giveaway -
I have never done anything like this before, so please bear with me lol! A huge thank you to Color Club UK, for allowing one of my lucky readers to own these beauties!!
This is also my first ever giveaway so thank you CCUK!!
This is sadly ONLY OPEN TO THE UK!
With the new Royal Mail rules I don't want to risk it, but don't worry my international beauties, I will have another giveaway soon!!
The end date is 15th MAY 2013.
Any questions please leave a comment or email me.
Good luck to all & I hope you enjoyed this post

a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. Great giveaway, thanks! My top 3 polishes are OPI Done Out In Deco, Models Own Juicy Jules and China Glaze For Audrey (if I can have one more it'd be OPI Mad As A Hatter!!) x

  2. Fave three polishes is so hard! Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum is definitely up there, although I only have a mini! The Barry M foils are so useful. And China Glaze Ruby Pumps never lets me down!

  3. Favourites is super difficult! I love A-England Tristam, OPI My Private Jet and Zoya Aurora...but they will probably change tomorrow haha x

  4. My top favorites are any Color Club or Essie I own with Andrea Fulerton Gemstone Overcoat :))

  5. Eppp so many!!
    I love Nails Inc Marylebone 3D Glitter and today i got OPI DS Temptation which is amazing!!
    I guess also Dollish Polish its Bigger on the INside too!
    Fab giveaway, love the blog! Im having a giveaway too hun if you want in!

  6. my top 3 300 would be easier, lol but i'll try. I guess they would have to be Enchanted polish Austin powers, OPI catch me in your net and Chanel malice.


  7. My ultimate, always use, favourite is Barry M Raspberry (273) because its a lovely deep berry red.
    I also love my Technic Carnival because its a cheap dupe for the fancy american brand Deborah Lippmann happy birthday.
    My last favourite would OPI tickle my francey, because it was the first OPI/only expencive nail polish i own, and its a perfect nude colour for my skin tone. It was a birthday present and i love it!

  8. Must haves? Oooh, hard to pick! Elevation Malaspina Glacier, Enchanted January 2013, and Julep Lena? -Olivia F.

  9. Zoya is my #1, then A England and last but of course not least is Ninja. :)

  10. Great giveaway hun. Thanks to you and. Color club. That black holo looks FAB x

  11. Ooh tough call. My 3 favourite polishes today are Nails Inc Baker Street, Jindie Nails Candy Land and Nails Inc Electric Lane x

  12. I only own one Zoya but it is my absolute favourite and that is Pixie Dust - Dahlia (the black one). I adore it. I also love love China Glaze Dorothy Who and Ruby Pumps but China Glaze chips like nobody's business on me no matter what I do! which moves them down the list out of the top three (sorry polishes). Recent favourites are The World is Not Enough by OPI and Coachella Dweller by Orly.

  13. I'm in the US but if per chance I win, I have a UK friend you can send it to, is that ok? On to the favorite polishes; BL Wallis, Zoya Fei Fei, and OPI Elephantastic Pink (for sentimental reasons) Thanks!

  14. My favourite polish that I own is called Mother Earth by an indie maker called Above The Curve-she's a beautiful neutral gold/copper holo and I fell in love with her when I put her on my fingers.
    Most wanted polish at the moment is China Glaze-Running in Circles-it's my FAVOURITE colour and I need it in my life!

  15. Enchanted, Zoya and Darling Diva
