Day 259: China Glaze – IDK

Hey Dolls,

I have awesome Holo for you today it is called IDK from China Glaze’s OMG Collection. IDK is a light dusty purple holo almost like a lilac purple. I love this one because its light and not bam in your face I’m a holo it is a great color for work when you want a little funkiness without being wham in your face funkiness. As you may or may not already know the holo effect in the OMG collection is way different from the holo effect’s in the Kaleidoscope and Tronica Collections. I love any and every holo so they are technically all my favorites lol. The holo effect of this one is very smooth and straight, the particles appear more organized and linear. In normal indoor light the holo effect on this is very visible but outdoors it is wham in your face visible like hello I am a holo you got to love me. The formula on this is a little tricky though it is best applied without a basecoat, as weird streaking and bald spots occur when applied over basecoat. It does not stain, so don’t worry too much about not using a basecoat. The formula is also a little drippy and tricky to apply, but these color is well worth the extra effort. It is so beautiful I took several pictures of IDK indoors and outside in the sun to show you the best of IDK. Enough word vomit on to the nail porn, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 254: China Glaze BFF Original

Hey Dolls,

I have a bombtastic Holo for you today it is called BFF from China Glazes OMG Collection. BFF is a medium pink holo, this is the original BFF this may be old news to some, but as of now there are 2 different versions. A bright pink and a muddy reddish/tanish/pinkish. Some have even thought they were just a batch of mislabeled TMI’s , but as you can see, they are just duds. I will show you a picture so you can see the difference and I will review the other BFF later on. As you can see, the holographic effect in this is quite different from the holo in the Kaleidoscope collection. BFF has a very smooth and straight holo effect, the particles appear more organized and linear. The holographic effect in this is barely visible under low light and indoor lighting, and can actually appear pretty flat and uninteresting unless you’re in bright light or outdoors. The Kaleidoscopes, however, still appear sparkly in low light. I love the way this one looks indoors and outdoors, I’m not going to ramble to much I’m just going to show lots of nail porn and let the pictures speak for themselves on this one. I took took tons of pictures indoors and outdoors to show off its amazeballz holo effect. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 242: China Glaze – OMG

Hey Dolls,

Today I have an awesome holographic polish for you it is called OMG and it is from CHina Glaze’s OMG Collection. OMG is  a smooth silver beauty and the namesake of the collection.  This has the strongest holo effect of my polishes and it can even be seen in the shade. This is a stunning sliver holographic polish. For those of you not familiar with collection, OMG was a collection of twelve holographic polishes released in 2008.  The polishes are renown for having some of the strongest linear holographic finishes available combined with a variety of extremely wearable colours.  Most holographic polishes that are available have what is known as a “scattered” effect which means the holographic effect appears randomly through the polish, much like glitter.  A “linear” effect describes the linear rainbow effect that can be seen in these polishes.  Unfortunately this collection is discontinued but can be found on eBay quite easily if you’re willing to pay for it. I have a few different silver holographic polishes I will do a review on them and show you sometime later. The formula on this is a little more tricky. This is best applied without a basecoat, as weird streaking and bald spots occur when applied over basecoat. OMG does not stain, so don’t worry too much about not using a basecoat. The formula is also a little drippy and tricky to apply, but this color is well worth the extra effort. I took tons of pictures of it indoors and outdoors to show you all the holographic goodness. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……

Day 235: China Glaze – LOL

Hey Dolls,

I don’t know if I have mentioned recently I have finished my OMG, Kaleidoscope and Tronica collections, I finally recived the only one I needed to complete my collections. It was a lot of work and money but it was worth it. Today I am going to show you a polish from China Glaze OMG Collection, this one is called LOL. For those of you who aren’t aware, the OMG Collection is one of the most sought after collections I’ve ever come across. Released in Spring 2008 the OMG collection consisted of 12 Limited Edition holographic polishes, unfortunately back in 2008 I had no idea about China Glaze, so I completely missed out on the opportunity to own them all. But I can say I now own all 12. LOL  is a gorgeous purple holographic polish. It is one of those holographics that look really dull in normal lighting. So if you really like your holo to be holo, LOL is not for you. In the sun it is gorgeous wham in your face holo. I took several pictures of LOL indoors in normal lighting and outdoors in the sun. I love California even in winter you sometimes have the sun shinning. 😀  My advice for applying this is waiting longer than usual between the coats since i’ve heard it has a tendency to smudge and become bumpy. It took 2 coats for me to get an opaque finish. The only drawback for me is that it chipped faster than normal polishes. I’ve read a lot that some people say the OMG collection has more problems with chipping faster than the Kaleidoscope Collection. Well I have rambled on enough until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……

China Glaze OMG Collection

Hey Dolls,

I wanted to show you the OMG Collection as a whole as well as me reviewing them individually. China Glaze introduced the OMG Collection for spring 2008, as a holographic nail polish collection.  The total campaign was focused around looking kewl while your texting. All the nail polish names relate to instant messaging or texts abbreviations. I missed out on this collection when it first came around and when I found about this collection I was bummed to find out that this collection was discontinued. But alas I have a hard time being told I cant have or get something so  I did intensive web searches and mass ebay stalking auctions and placing bids trying to find the cheapest price and low and behold I am now the proud owner of the entire collection. Well now that I rambled on to what I wanted to show you all. I am also making the names clickable so you can go to their review and see close ups of the colors and a more in depth look at the colors:

 From left to right: QT, TMI, TTYL, FYI, GR8, AND L8R G8R This is the 2BHot Set.

From left to right: DV8, LOL, BFF (ORIGINAL PINK VERSION), IDK, 2NITE, AND OMG. This is the 2BKewl Set.

Now I said BFF original pink version because there are people out there on ebay selling one that is a brown version it kind of looks similar to TTYL but isn’t exactly the same color as that one. I actually own the brown version of BFF it says BFF on the bottom so I’m really not sure what happened there but the original is pink. Here is a picture of the brown version:

BFF (brown version)  The next pictures you will see what I mean about two different versions of BFF.

Here is a brief swatch of all the colors:

 

Well Dollies that is all I have for you on my OMG Collection by China Glaze Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel….

Day 229: China Glaze – TTYL

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun holo polish for you today it is called TTYL by China Glaze from their OMG Collection. TTYL is from the 2BHot set from the OMG Collection. TTYL is a  nude peach holo. I would say this is a work appropriate holo! Its a nice rosy pink, but with holo-y goodness! A jazzed up neutral! I love this polish. Its pink, but with a fun exciting twist. This holo is  very smooth and straight, the particles appear more organized and linear. The holographic effect in this is barely visible under low light and indoor lighting, and it actually appears pretty flat and uninteresting unless you’re in bright light or outdoors. The Kaleidoscopes, however, still appear sparkly in low light. The formula on this is a little more tricky. This is  best applied without a basecoat, as weird streaking and bald spots occur when applied over basecoat. It does not stain, so don’t worry too much about not using a basecoat. The formula is also a little drippy and tricky to apply, but this color are well worth the extra effort. I also added pictures of it outdoors in the sun to show you the great holo effect. Hope you love TTYL, so ttyl lovelies, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……

Day 197: China Glaze – L8R G8R

Hey Dolls,

OMG I love this polish, today’s polish is called L8R G8R by China Glaze and it is from their OMG Collection. L8R G8R is a bright spring green holo. The formula on this one is nice – smooth and forgiving. Application was easy as pie at first it’s a little sheer but two awesome coats and you are in green holo town I love it. A green Holo polish.  This is best applied without a basecoat, as weird streaking and bald spots occur when applied over basecoat. This does not stain, so don’t worry too much about not using a basecoat. The formula is also a little drippy and tricky to apply, but this color is well worth the extra effort. It only needed two coats for total opacity and it dried lightning fast. It also look best without a topcoat. For some reason topcoat seems to dull the holographic effect. Enjoy the holo magic of L8r G8R until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Updat 1/1/12 I added pictures of L8R G8R in the sun to show the awesome holo.
