Nail Hoot The Beginning Collection

Good evening!  Sorry for the very late post!  And this one is picture heavy so get your nighttime cup of decaf or tea and settle in for the long haul.  Tonight's post features a new indie brand, Nail Hoot.  I've been in contact with the maker, Brandie, and she is extremely nice.  Nail Hoot started in March this year and there is currently 1 collection released.  The Beginning is a lovely collection full of shimmer and holo sparkle and color shifting.  I know plenty of nail gals who will enjoy all of those elements of the line.  You can also wear most of them over a black or white base for a completely different look....so it's like 2 polishes in 1!  Sweet!  You can purchase any of the polishes from The Beginning Collection, in full size or mini bottles, individually, small sets or the entire collection.  The prices range from $6.25 to $30 for the 5 piece set.  If The Beginning is a small glimpse into the polish Brandie has in store for us then paint me excited!  And now, no more talking.  Let's check this polish brand out!

Up first I have Exodus.  This is an apple green, shimmery polish.  You can wear it alone as I did in these first pictures, or layered over white which I also did in later pictures.  I enjoyed it both ways but like the ethereal, glowing effect Exodus took on layered over white.  On it's own you can see that Exodus has a bit of a color shift due to the golden shimmer.  I found the formula a bit crelly-ish.  It was easy to apply and built up nicely on it's own.  Here I have 4 coats with no base color and a layer of topcoat.

Numbers is a lovely pink-coral full of blueish shimmer.  This is another color that can be worn alone or over a base color.  Both ways are really pretty but I prefer Numbers on it's own.  The formula and application were both great, Numbers built up well on it's own and I reached full coverage in 3 coats. I finished with a layer of topcoat.

Leviticus is a smoldering metallic orange full of tiny silver micro glitters.  Leviticus shifts from red to copper to orange.  Love this color!  It has so much character with the color shift and surprisingly looks even more amazing over white.  For the first pictures I have 2 coats of Leviticus on it's own.  It has a good formula and applies easily.  It does dry with a very slightly gritty feel but a good topcoat will smooth that out.

Deuteronomy is a purple/blue shifting metallic type polish with blue micro glitters.  The colors in Deuteronomy are gorgeous.  I know there will be some clamoring for this polish as there are so many purple lovers out there.  The formula was great.  Creamy and opaque.  I only needed 2 coats of Deuteronomy for full coverage.  This one also has a slightly gritty look finish but a good layer of topcoat will smooth it over nicely.  I finished with a layer of topcoat.

And finally there is Genesis.  Actually in the start there was Genesis as this was the first polish Brandie created for Nail Hoot.  It's pretty amazing too!  The difference between Genesis on it's own and over a black base has me looking at 2 completely different polishes!  Genesis is a beautiful blue, teal, purple, green polish full of silvery holo micro glitters.  It was actually more sheer that the other 2 color shifting metallic shades but I had no issues building it up.  My first pictures are Genesis alone, and the pictures in the end are over black.  Formula and application were fabulous.  As with the other 2, use a nice topcoat to cover any glitter grit.
