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.

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y

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?
