Digit-al Dozen geek week day 2 - holographic binary nail art with Color Club Halo Hues!

Hey guys! Today I have some nails to show you using two colors from the new Color Club Halo Hues collection from spring 2013 - Beyond and Over the Moon. I did these a couple days ago when it was super sunny because I wanted to get some good swatch pics, but literally as soon as I finished painting for the first swatch the sun was gone haha. UGH. Luckily I have a daylight bulb in my desk lamp so I was still able to get some good holo pics!

The formula on both of these is impeccable. I wore them without top or base coat and they were both opaque in 2 perfect, easy coats. I only wore the nail art for an afternoon so I can't speak to the longevity of these without a topcoat, but I can say that I spent the afternoon cleaning the house and then I took a shower and my nails were still perfect afterward - which is definitely saying something! They also dry crazy fast, which is AWESOME.

Color Club Beyond is a black linear holo. OMG JUST LOOK AT THIS YOU GUYS. This is the first holo polish I've ever worn and I think my eyeballs popped out of my head when I put it on.

Color Club Over the Moon is a bright blue linear holo. This one was more holo in real life than it's showing up in pictures - I LOVE it.

When I was brainstorming ideas for geek week, I asked my boyfriend for his input and he suggested binary nails! I really liked the idea and I decided to do them with these holo polishes so they'd look sort of futuristic/computer-y (don't judge me).

I seriously LOVE the way these came out. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to pull them off at first but I think I managed to do okay!

I started with a base of two coats of Over the Moon and then used my tiny detailing brush to freehand the ones and zeroes in Beyond. FUN FACT: the binary says "nails"! I found a binary translator online and I thought it'd be fun if my nails actually said nails... IN BINARY. The first two nails say "nails" together, and the second two say "nai" I think... I ran out of room haha.

The sun came out literally just in time for me to take these pictures and then went away as soon as I was done - thanks, sunshine! I was really happy because just LOOK at this holo in full sun.

All in all I'm happy with how these came out and I think they were such a cool idea! Props to my neat boyfriend for coming up with it. What do you guys think?
