Review: KleanColor Chunky Holo Fuchsia over Black

A while ago I was quite super excited to find these magical-looking "KleanColor" polishes on a website for very cheap.  So cheap, I had to order 20 of them, just to see if they were for realisies.  That was quite the package that arrived, let me tell you.  So many colours, glitters, so hard to choose.  When I did finally try my first one, it smelt weird and took ages to dry so I just kinda forgot about them.  Given that I haven't gotten around to reordering my polishes since I spread them out for the world to see, I've resorted to digging through.  And that, my friends, is the very long introduction to KleanColor Chunky Holo Fuchsia.

Chunky Holo Fuchsia is so interesting in the bottle. Even when I'm holding in, you can see the reds, yellows, greens and the slightest hint of blue on the edges.  On the nail, however, the red-green is more prominent, something I've seen a lot lately with the Shines of the Times and so on.  That being said, it is super shiny and sparkly, so I'll let it go.  As for application, this is one coat over Rimmel Black Satin.  It did seem to take a while to dry, so be careful.








The Verdict:  Just after I applied this I found my purple version that seemed to have a stronger blue shift, which would have been nice.  Will have to try it shortly as I love how shiny and sparkly this is.

  3. I got a pack of 48 kleancolors from a set on amazon for about 40 bucks. It was good to stimulate my collection when I first got started but I haven't really used them since. The solids are generally neons and they are horrible smelling and have the consistency of elmer's glue, or are exceptionally streaky. The sparkles are better, but still awful smelling and I don't really have an eternity to wait for them to dry, so I never use them either.

  4. I got a swag of them. They do smell odd, and some of their glitters take ages to dry. Others are fantastic though. The chunky holo black is gorgeous, and their foils are some of my favourites for how they go on and their colours.

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop.  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....


My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images!
To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle of …
