Kizmet is a light lime green holo. I was searching everywhere online to see how close it was to L8R G8R, but could not find any comparisons. I thought it would be more pigmented but it surprisingly was not! Although the shades are similar, the holographic effect is different. China Glaze's OMG's had a super fine spectraflair pigment which makes for a smoother holo, where the Color Club's are more glittery, with larger glitter pieces. I did a swatch in my nail wheel and only needed one coat for full coverage.
Cosmic Fate is a peachy pink holo. This is probably the only colour of holographic polish I don't have, and that is why I picked it up, because I wanted all of them, it was a hard decision to just pick two! Same application as Kizmet, one coat on my swatch wheel.
Next up are some cross boarder shopping purchases, I picked these up at CosmoProf, first is China Glaze Fancy Pants. This just looks so interesting to me! A deep purple leaning blue base with pink shimmer. Definitely unlike anything I own. When I searched this on my nail wheel I noticed the formula was quite thick so I will most-likely apply thinner before applying on my nails. Due to the thickness it was opaque in one coat.
While at CosmoProf I also spotted a China Glaze and Seche Vite duo in support of breast cancer. It was on sale for $4.95, so I couldn't leave it! The China Glaze colour is Naked, a light pink polish with glass fleck shimmer.
I had found a coupon for $5 off a Kiss brand led light for gel polish and figured if I found it at Wal Mart I would pick it up. There was only one left so I thought what the hell, if it doesn't work with my gels I can always return it lol. I am looking forward to trying it out, I need a pedicure bad!
One last item from across the boarder, if you live in the States and are close to a Christmas Tree Store check it out, I found these Revlon flakies for only $1.99! I spotted four different versions. I'm not too crazy about these myself, but I know some of you were interested in purchasing them but didn't like the higher price point. This is the lowest I have seen them for. The Dollarama in Canada has these for $3 each, only the neon collection was spotted by me.
I've saved the best for last, 6/8 out of 12 of the new China Glaze Hologlams :) I was so giddy when I got these online, but in person the bottles just look so... Not all that exciting lol. They almost look like the magnetic or chrome polishes. I first ordered online my top four; OMG A UFO, Strap On Your Moonboots, Take a Trek and When Worlds Collide.
The next batch I picked up in-store was Sci-Fly By, Cosmic Dust, Galactic Grey and Not in this Galaxy. You will not believe how much I scored these babies for! I must have the best Sally's EVAR! First of all when I called in and asked about them a week before their release I was allowed the option to hold the ones I wanted, that was the first awesome score! Once I got in, there was a promo for 2 for $7 on all China Glaze (Proclub promo), On top of that I was honoured April's promo as well which is buy two of any polish get one free!! I walked out of Sally's Spending just over $11 with tax for 4 polishes, plus for the additional 4 I ordered by mail were purchased with Swagbucks, so I got them for FREE!! So the total spent for 8 Hologlam polishes equals just over $11, deal of the year for sure! If you are interested in FREE nail polish and other rewards, send me a private email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will invite you to join to start earning as well!
Now I'm sure you want bottle shots and swatches, but that it just too big for this post so I will showcase them on their own soon. I have left you a sneak peek in the photo below...
Doesn't even do any of them justice by the way. I am truly happy with them despite what I have read on other blogs, I love the holo effect and colours, I am just super excited about them, they do not disappoint!
