China Glaze GR8 from the OMG Collection!

Every now and then, blogsales feature amazing treasures for dirt cheap prices. I am always on the lookout for China Glaze OMG and Kaleidoscope polishes. I found China Glaze GR8 at Strych from Pretty in Dayton's blogsale for the low low price of.... FREE!!!!!!  She was including GR8 as a throw in if you purchased another polish!! Gasp! I obviously found something else to purchase immediately and requested GR8 as my throw in.

GR8 is a gold holo that actually isn't overwhelmingly holographic, but pretty nonetheless. I just really am still mad at myself for not buying the entire OMG and Kaleidoscope collections when I had the chance. I thought mainstream companies would make lots more holos, but obviously, they haven't really. Indoors and in low light, GR8 is only a little bit holo. The holo effect shows up more in sunlight, but it's still pretty subtle.


GR8 applied well, not streaky or difficult at all. I used three coats. It was actually more opaque than I thought it would be. I almost got away with two coats. The formula was a little bit thin, but not runny.

If you have the chance to pick up this polish at a low price, I would recommend getting it. I like gold polish and gold holo polish is always very pretty. I do wish China Glaze would do a collection of real holos again.

It looks to me like it's just screaming for a Konad. That's probably why I decided to get rid of it. LOL It's actually not a bad color on you, though. :)
