Color Club Beyond Nail Lacquer
Color Club Beyond Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a deep, warm, smoky gray-black with holographic shimmer. The closest shade I could think of was Rescue Beauty Lounge Anne, which is slightly greener and not-so-holographic.
Beyond applied beautifully–I had no trouble with application at all, and sometimes holographic polishes can be tricky to apply. It went on fluidly, evenly, and didn’t emphasize ridges or anything like that. It didn’t dry as fast as other holographics but did dry faster than the average polish did. The holographic effect is insane–it happens at nearly every angle and there’s plenty go around; you won’t feel like you have to get your nails at just the right angle in just the right light to see it. You’ll be hard-pressed to find an angle where it isn’t shimmering in a rainbow of delight. It was fully opaque in two coats (and nearly opaque in a single one!) and didn’t pool, bubble, or streak. I typically get a week of wear out of Color Club’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.
