Twinsie Tuesday: Color Club Miss Bliss

"You have so much nail polish! How could you possibly have trouble picking what to wear?"


In the life of a polish addict, we've all been there: dozens of polishes but you still feel like you have nothing to choose from. When you absolutely cannot decide, that's when you fall back on your old faithfuls, which is what this week's Twinsie Tuesday theme is all about: sharing our go-to polish!

I don't really have a specific go-to polish, but more of a go-to color. Whenever I am absolutely stumped on what polish to wear, I pretty much always reach for a pink. Yeah, it's a bit of a safe choice, but it'll work with any outfit or occasion!

And what better pink to choose today than one gifted to me by a fellow Twinsie? I received Color Club Miss Bliss from the fabulous Amanda as part of our Twinsie Tuesday holiday swap! This linear holographic pink is one of Color Club's much-loved Halo Hues. For my money, Halo Hues are absolutely the best holos out there! They're very vibrant and they apply effortlessly.



One of the many fantastic things about Halo Hues is that you don't need a special aqua basecoat to really bring out the holographic effect or to ensure streak-free application. I used Deborah Lippmann Fast Girls under two coats of Miss Bliss and it worked beautifully--no streaking, no dragging and the holo was still breathtakingly intense! I did skip topcoat to keep the holo nice and vibrant but luckily the dry time is quick so you're not waiting around forever with wet nails.

I really can't recommend the Halo Hues highly enough and a big thank you goes out to Amanda for helping me expand my collection of them! :) Color Club can be a tough brand to find where I live, so I was thrilled to receive more of these amazing holos!

Do you have a go-to polish? Or are you like me where you just have a go-to color or style of polish? If you're in need of some good workhorse polishes, be sure to check out what my Twinsies chose as their go-to's today!

    1. Thanks Melissa! I would probably have picked up all the Halo Hues eventually if Color Club was more readily available where I live. But they are definitely worth tracking down! Such perfect holos!

    1. Thank you! :) Pink is my favorite "real life" color so I have a bit of a weakness for it, despite my obsession with blue and green polish.

  8. Love the holo!

    I tend to reach for purples when I'm not sure what to wear. My favorite go-to is Zoya Daul. I love how the gold glitter can either be in the background or the foreground depending on the lighting.

    1. Thank you! Daul is a gorgeous polish and a great go-to choice! I don't have Daul myself but I do have a dupe for it, Orly Oui.

  11. HAHAH, love your opening!!! I was feeling like that this morning. And finally decided on a pink mani!

    I cannot say enough good things about those Color Club holos. I have several and love them all. Hope to expand my collection of them. I do want to get Miss Bling. Beautiful swatch!

    1. Well you know what they say about great minds. ;) I'm with you, Halo Hues cannot be praised enough in my book. Color Club really hit it out of the park with them! And thank you!

  12. I am beyond obsessed with my Color Club holos! I picked this one up last year on clearance. Beyond shocked that it ever made it to a clearance display, I thought it would be the first to go! color club by far makes the best holo polishes!

    1. I had a similar experience with the first batch of Halo Hues. I found nearly the whole collection on clearance and was shocked that they even stuck around for that long! Apparently no one else could see how amazing they are. But hey, living in a small-ish town has its advantages sometimes!
