Color: three coats Color Club Kismet
Application: good (out of poor, average, good, excellent)
I purchased Color Club Kismet myself. All opinions are my own honest thoughts.
This week, Connecticut FINALLY saw a bit of that big bright orb in the sky, I believe it's called "the sun". In celebration of the return of this "sun" thing, I decided to swatch Color Club Kismet, one of the spring 2013 Color Club holos. Kismet is a gorgeous pale celery green holo with a hint of pale gold, and like the other Color Club holos recently released, it is blindingly holographic and produces rainbows all over your nails. Every time I wear one of the newer Color Club holos, I start thinking that I really need the rest of them. They are SO rainbow-y, especially in direct sun.
I apologize for the blurry macro shot, I think it was just too much rainbow for my camera to deal with! Below, you can see what Kismet looks like indoors in very low light. There's still a respectable glimpse of rainbow goodness.
Another thing I love about the fall 2012 and spring 2013 Color Club holo polishes is that they apply much better than many other holo polishes. I didn't use any base or top coat for these swatches. This is three coats of Kismet and there are no patchy spots. Kismet was maybe a little less pigmented than the last Color Club holo I tried, Cosmic Fate, but it was still opaque in three coats. The only possible downside to these lovely polishes is that they do seem to chip a bit quickly. I change my polish so frequently that this doesn't bother me, but it's something to think about for those of you looking for long wearing lacquer.
The spring 2013 Color Club holos are available now at all the usual etailers. Kismet seems to be in stock most places, although the next one I need to get (Beyond) seems to be sold out on a few sites. I actually ordered mine on Amazon.com because I had a gift card, but I think they're more expensive there.
Also, I'm sorry that it's been a little slow around here. The 2013 Irish Dancing World Championships took place last week and the preparation for the event was really exhausting. I came home with two medals (one in solo dancing and one in team dancing), so I am pleased, but so tired!! Things will pick up soon! I have a review of the OPI Bond Girls collection coming up and not one, but two giveaways, so hang in there!
