Twinsie Tuesday: Discontinued Polish

20 Mar

This week on Twinsie Tuesday we’re showcasing discontinued polishes.  This one really got me thinking.  Do I have any discontinued polishes?  What about any that I haven’t already swatched?  I started opening drawers and looking through my polishes to see what I could show you today.  And then I saw it; China Glaze Kaleidoscope Him Out.  I found this polish on an impromptu dusty hunt back in January.  It was stuck shut and I think that’s why I hadn’t used it yet.

Why did I wait so long!?!  This polish is freaking gorgeous!  I don’t own a lot of holographic polishes, especially linear, but this is by far the strongest I have.  My ring finger is layered over black so that one only took two coats, but all the rest took three to four coats for full coverage and to cover up bald spots.

I loaded a million pictures to show you the holo effect of this polish.  I love when you wear a holographic polish and just happen to catch a glimpse of your manicure in a light that really brings out the rainbow.  For me, this light was the cab light in my car.  I should’ve tried to take a picture, but I’d already taken so many.  I didn’t get to see this in the sunlight as it has been quite cloudy and a bit stormy the last few days.

All of the above pictures were taken in the lighting I normally take my photos in.  The pictures below are still incandescent, but it’s a different light and for some reason really brought out the holograph.  I seem to get really strong holo effects in fluorescent lighting as well which would be awesome for an office job.

It’s like I’ve got the Northern Lights on my nails.  Who needs to go to Alaska to see them when you can just wear a polish like this? ;) Phenomenal.

    Oh man, I love this so much! And I’d be beyond ecstatic if I discovered this hiding in my stash somewhere *crosses fingers and toes and goes to look*
