Hocus Pocus-Color Club Bewitching Mini

Color Club's Bewitching 4 piece mini set with decals is one of the prizes in my current Friday Follower Freebie giveaway which closes at midnight tonight. You still have time to enter here! I was very curious about Hocus Pocus, so I tried it out using my set. It reminds me of Color Club's Magic Attraction, but with more opaque coverage and a little different coloring.

Above & Below: These photos were taken outside in the sunlight, and I used 2 coats with no application issues. This one is filled with tiny iridescent multi colored holographic glitter and has a silver base with the slightest blue grey tint.
Below: This photo was taken indoors with a flash.

Below: Here's a quick bottle comparison with Magic Attraction (large bottle). They are similar and both what I would call a silver, but Hocus Pocus leans more blue/grey, while Magic Attraction leans more grey. The glitter seems more holographic in Hocus Pocus also.

I've mentioned before how much I like Color Club's mini's, simply because of the bottle design. They seems easier for me to work with than some of the other brands, and don't feel miniature when I'm working with the bottle and brush, if that make sense. Hocus Pocus isn't what I'd call a true holographic polish--it doesn't have the circular pattern like you get from Color Club's Revvvolution, or the powerful holographic pattern you get from some of the Nfu's. It was quite a bit more opaque even on the first coat when compared with Magic Attraction, which has me wondering how it would work as a Konad stamping polish. Something else to add to my ever-growing list of things to try!

  3. Ahhhh! I want! Mary, you keep posting these beautiful polishes! I already got the Sally Hansen HDs I want (I read about it and saw the swatches from your blog) and now I'm working on the Milani Liquid Metal one (but with less success as it seems to be mostly gone from CVS).

  9. I also love Color Club's minis. OPI are one big pain! I thought I could save money and buy the minis. They're too much trouble. Love this glitter but I have tons and tons of glitters.
