Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish collection | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Yay! I finally have all 12 of these polishes and can share them with you. Thanks to Amy of onepolishedmonkey, who picked up Sagittarius for me at her Hot Topic. Let’s go through them all and my notes, hang on to yer butts! (Yes, I know my photo is a little dark, but I took what I could get in the limited time I had available. 😦 )

Aries, 2 coats and no top coat
This had a good formula and covered well in 1 coat; 2 coats deepens the color.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Taurus | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Taurus, 2 coats and no top coat
Formula was thick, even for me. It can be draggy, so be careful with your application. It dries to a sort of matte finish? It isn’t like how Virgo dries, but it isn’t shiny either.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Gemini | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Gemini, 1 coat over Scorpio
This was runny and sheer! I did color correct a bit, it’s more of a green tint.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Cancer | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Cancer, 2 coats plus top coat
This was also runny and sheer; it dries with a bit of grit to it. It’s more teal green in real life than vibrant blue – I did try to do some color correcting here.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Leo | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Leo, 2 coats and no top coat
This is sheer but it has a good formula.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Virgo | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Virgo, 2 coats and no top coat
This is thick and applies unevenly; have a light hand with your application. I compared it to OPI Suede We’ll Always Have Paris.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Libra | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Libra, 3 coats and no top coat
This is a jelly, so it’s sheer. It does apply unevenly.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Scorpio | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Scorpio, 2 coats and no top coat
I could have done 1 coat but 2 deepens the color. This has a good formula but be careful because it’s a stainer!

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Sagittarius | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Sagittarius macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Sagittarius close up | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Sagittarius, 2 coats and no top coat
This has a good formula, covers well in 1 coat but needs 2 for full coverage. It dries with a bit of texture to it, which unlike Cancer feels like it’s supposed to be a texture polish.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Capricorn | Be Happy And Buy Polish

This is a slightly runny formula. I’ll have a comparison post on this coming soon!

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Aquarius | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Aquarius macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Aquarius, 3 coats and no top coat
This is super sheer but otherwise has a good formula.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Zodiac nail polish Pisces | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Pisces, 2 coats and no top coat
This is more green than I thought it would be looking at the bottle! Good formula.

Now I know that people are having lots of trouble finding these and I hope that Hot Topic will put them on their website soon (they are not as of this writing). Keep checking the website and keep checking in stores! I think I lucked out in finding 11 out of 12 at my local store – I must have hit right after they got a shipment.

Update: I tweeted at Hot Topic and received this response, if you’re on twitter, let them know that you are looking for them!

Phew! If you’re still with me – bless you for your patience. Please share and pin the polishes you’re loving the most, it helps me as a blogger. If you have any comparison suggestions, especially with other mainstream brands, I will attempt to dig out polishes if I have them. Let me know what you think!
