Color Club Cloud 9

9:00:00 AM

Another boring post, I know, I apologize.  Good news is that my first draft of my thesis is due Friday, then I only have to work on edits.  Therefore, I can return to the wonderful world of nail art!  I do have some nail art posts ready to post, but I want to wait and post them on Valentine's Day and after.  Plus, one of them is a Valentine's manicure and well I don't want to do any others before that day since I hate that "Holiday."

At least this post isn't as boring as a white manicure, although Sally Hansen Moonstone was shimmery, frosty perfection!  This post is holo perfection!  I posted Color Club Cloud 9 a few months back.  The pictures were awful as I posted them using a flash on my table.  Now I have my lovely DIY Lightbox which takes amazing photos.  I was able to capture the gorgeous holo using it, and I had to share!

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:

  • Color Club - Cloud 9
Can we all agree that Color Club Cloud 9 is holo perfection in a bottle?  Sadly, this is my only holo polish, but after hearing news that Color Club released new colors, I am quickly going to change that.  After seeing other swatches online of the new China Glaze holos, and old swatches of Layla holos, I feel as if the Color Club ones have the strongest effect.

Cloud 9 is a gorgeous light lavender polish, reason I was attracted to it in the first place.  I'm a lover for purples and blues, so it was a tough decision picking just one.  Since my collection was lacking lavenders, I went for this one.  As you can see, the holo shows up magnificently.  The application of the polish was a dream as well.  This manicure was done using 3 coats, but you could get away with two.

My only issue with Color Club is the bottle itself.  I like the square shape and all, but I hate that handle.  It's not because I hate it when I'm polishing, I hate it when I'm trying to open my polish.  It always gets stuck!!  No matter what I do, each and every time it is stuck.  I had a bottle of Factory Girl which was my favorite sky blue polish, and I couldn't use it for about 8 months because I could not get it open.  I ended up buying those rubber bottle opener things from Bed, Bath, and Beyond and I was able to get it open again, but seriously  it's impossible.  Hurts my poor lil hand trying.  Anyone else have that issue?

What do you think?  Love the holo, hate the holo?

I ended up doing a tape manicure with these and I will be showing you all after Valentine's Day!!!  They looked better in person than they did in the photos, but regardless, I'll be sharing!  See you soon, and wish me luck on my thesis!

  3. I think we all know how i feel about holos lol! If i cant get a polish open i run the handle under the hot tap, that sometimes loosens it x x x

    1. I tried doing that with my Color Clubs, but it never works. It's like super glue! It's really bad when it's humid out too, it's like they swell. Maybe it's a mind over matter! haha
