China Glaze Holographic

China Glaze – Octa Gone Wild and QT

Friday, 18 March, 2011

I’ve been slacking. I fully admit it, though I hang my head in shame when I say why. I’m sadly sucked into the world of a video game I’m playing – Dragon Age 2. This is my first time playing an RPG (role playing game). Traditionally, I’ve played MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role playing game) – EverQuest and WoW to name a couple. So this time I’m playing DA2 on the XBox. I’ve been bound and determined to finish the game, but I’m about 75% through the game and I realized…I hate how my character is relating to another. What have I done? Why, I’ve scrapped the game and started a new one…and am discovering new quests and relationships because I’ve changed one line of dialogue.So while thrilled, I’m also going, “OMG. What have I gotten into?!”

Anyway, since I didn’t do a post yesterday I’m throwing in the color along with my Friday Red.

I am showing you my attempt at doing a week of Holographic polish…here are 2 polishes from China Glaze – Octa Gone Wild and QT

This was one of those colors that really surprised me. I thought it would be a weak weak holo because the flakes were so big. It’s not as small as I normally like, but I just love this color. I think having this color years ago is what put me on my holographic kick. Really, it was insane! I still need a few colors, but this is so pretty. It shimmers and shines so beautifully, don’t you think?

I love the rainbow shimmer/shine you can see on my middle finger. If you can find a bottle of this, grab it and run. Seriously. Do it. Even if you have to knock over a sweet old lady in the process. All is fair in love, war and nail polish. Remember that.

Now this little cheeky number isn’t quite a red, but it is darn close. Well, it is in my head so don’t tell me any differently, ok? Smile, nod your head and then call me a crazy color blind old bat behind my back. I prefer it that way, thanks. Look at this pretty holo shining through in the shade. How can one resist this? HOW?!

The holo shows up here pretty darn nicely in sunlight.


I haven’t even hit on a fraction of the holos I want to swatch. I’m also debating on having a giveaway of the OMG collection – I found it in my Helmer when I was doing a re-org.

A fellow polish addict couldn’t believe I was thinking of giving it away…because she was worried that the person who won would end up tossing it on eBay. While true, I like to think that a true polish lover would win and keep it forever and ever because it’s something they genuinely would keep in their collection.

Do you think it would be a good idea to have a giveaway of this or should I just hoard it?
