KleanColor Chunky Holo Clover Swatches & Review (Layered Over China Glaze Gaga For Green)

KleanColor Chunky Holo Clover Swatches & ReviewKleanColor Chunky Holo Clover layered over China Glaze Gaga For Green was the manicure I wore for St. Patrick’s Day.

Haha, as if I needed a reason to wear green nail polish, right? πŸ˜‰ I’m pretty festive all year long!

I enjoyed wearing KleanColor Chunky Holo Clover, but out of all the other colours in the Chunky Holo Collection, this surprisingly wasn’t ranked near the top of my list.

What do you think of it? And what would you layer underneath it?

The Best of 2011: Nail Polish, Nail Art, Makeup, Skincare & Fragrance

Swatch And Learn The Best of 2011It’s been quite a year, hasn’t it?

I’ve tried all sorts of new beauty products including nail polishes. And I’ve had tons of fun coming up with nail-art designs!

Now that it’s the last day in 2011, it’s time to reflect upon the year.

I’d like to share with you my Best of 2011 list!Β I still have a ton of favourites from last year, so these picks are strictly new ones that I’ve blogged about in 2011.

You’ll see it broken down into the following categories: nail polish (duh), nail art (double duh), fragrance, makeup, and skincare.Β All lists are in no particular order. (It was difficult enough to whittle down my picks for the nail polishes!)

Feel free to click on the links – they’ll take you to the blog post with the swatches, reviews, and tutorial (where appropriate).

Now I’m so curious about what you think!

Is there a lacquer that you feel I sorely missed including? Have you found your Holy Grail facial cleanser? What nail-art design have you worn in 2011 that you would consider wearing again in 2012?

Please weigh in with your picks! We’re all different, but our love for beauty products brings us together. πŸ™‚ Continue reading


KleanColor Chunky Holo Purple Swatches & Review

KleanColor Chunky Holo Purple Swatches & ReviewA few weeks ago, I wore KleanColor Chunky Holo Purple 234 layered over OPI Can You Dig It?, and guess what? I forgot about the photos I took of it on my camera until now!

This combination was a winner for me, and I wore it for 7 days straight. I wanted to wear it longer, but with so many untried colours in my collection, I start feeling guilty if I wear the same manicure for more than a week. Does anyone else feel the same way?

You may remember that I previously reviewed some other colours in the KleanColor Chunky Holo Collection and said that Bluebell was incredible. It still is, but if you’re a fan of purple and you love a strong holographic-glitter polish, Chunky Holo Purple will steal your heart! Continue reading


KleanColor Chunky Holo Candy Swatches & Review

KleanColor Chunky Holo Candy Swatches & ReviewIt’s very rare when I wear the same nail-polish shade again in less than 2 weeks. I have to really fall hard for the color.

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy was my knight. The shining armor I layered over him was KleanColor Chunky Holo Candy 228!

Unlike Bluebell, which I previously swatched, reviewed, and wanted to marry, Candy was very underwhelming. It’s not to say that this holographic glitter polish is bad, but it was far less impressive than Bluebell’s mind-blowing rainbowy goodness.

As the name would suggest, Candy is a sweet color – mainly yellow, orange, and grass green suspended in a translucent coral-pink polish.

When I first laid eyes on the bottle, the base color instantly reminded me of China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. It has that neon brightness that I thought would be a perfect match made in polish heaven.

Sadly, I’m not a huge fan of this combination. I much prefer Flip Flop Fantasy alone than with this glitter top coat. But there are many layering possibilities (try it over black!), so don’t let me put you off this color. Continue reading


KleanColor Chunky Holo Bluebell Swatches & Review

KleanColor Chunky Holo Bluebell Swatches & ReviewIn my Haul of Shame post, you’ll remember that I bragged about snatching up the entire KleanColor Chunky Holo Collection.

I showed you bottle pictures and swatched them all by themselves, but also over black polish.

Now it’s time to give an individual thorough review on KleanColor Chunky Holo Bluebell 235.

Since this holographic glitter polish is supposed to be used as a top coat rather than solo, I layered it over China Glaze Midnight Mission (a rich fine-glittery deep blue).

If you have any doubts surrounding whether or not to get KleanColor Bluebell, let me help you decide: Get it! πŸ˜› Seriously, it’s a beauty! Continue reading


Haul of Shame: KleanColor Chunky Holo Collection Swatches, Pictures & Quickie Review (228 Candy to 236 Black)

KleanColor Haul Nail Polish Pictures

A Swatch And Learn reader, Andii, tipped me off about the new KleanColor Chunky Holo polishes weeks ago. My ears perked up when she mentioned that one of them was named 230 and had a multichrome personality of Clarins 230 except in a chunky glitter finish.

Unfortunately, the KleanColor website doesn’t ship to Canada (just the United States), and eBay sellers were out of stock on some that I wanted.

Thankfully, I knew an American who was willing to order them for me from the official website and bring them up since he was going to be visiting me soon anyway. His name’s Matty, and you’ve heard me mention him many times. πŸ™‚ (Thank you, Matty!)

Since each polish was only $3.49 USD and they had a free shipping offer if you spent over $40 USD, I decided to order all 9 colors in this collection…as well as a few back-ups to hit the threshold.

All of these are so beautiful…even prettier in person than my camera could capture! And I can’t wait to wear them as a full manicure. For now, though, here are some bottle pictures. I’ve also swatched them all by themselves and over black to give you a better idea of what these look like. Continue reading
