Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple

I haven’t done a Kleancolor post in a while. And I have a lot of polishes from my Kleancolor web site and hauls a few months ago that are still unswatched and unworn that I want to share with you! Today I have pics of my mani yesterday, which included Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple! It’s an iridescent glitter that I used as a top coat to transform Sinful Colors Paradise!

It is magical over the blue creme of Paradise!

Blurry on purpose to show the iridescence!:

Chunky Holo Purple just glows in the bottle, I could stare at it for a while. On the nail, the predominant color I noticed was the coppery pink or magenta, which created a nice effect against the blue creme. When I turned my nails in different directions you could very much see the green and blue in this Chunky Holo.The glitter is loaded into a very sheer purple jelly.

I am a sucker for duochrome and color-shifting polishes, glitters and flakies. It’s no wonder that I love this polish!

It was a pain to remove, but not as much of a pain as other glitters (Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop took forever. But it was totally worth it. Post coming!). I held the cotton ball soaked with acetone to my finger and melted the polishes a few seconds before putting a little elbow grease into removing them. It seemed to help the longer I held the cotton ball in place.

Paradise, it should be noted, is pretty on its own. I picked it up at Walgreens a few weeks ago.

So what do you think of this Kleancolor, and/or this combo? Have you tried any of Kleancolor’s Chunky Holo line?

    Lovin’ these chunky holos! What a pretty combo. I am also looking for some cremes on their website. I have heard some not nice things about BeautyJoint like they charge $1 handling for each bottle of polish ordered and I right now I am not able to tell on their website how much their shipping charges are. I know $1.75 a bottle is a steal,but when you add another $1 to each polish and then add shipping,well I am feeling on the fence about BeautyJoint. I think I will try the KleanColor website instead.

      As I mentioned on Twitter, the $1 handling charge BeautyJoint charged me was for the whole order, not every polish. I had a good experience my first and only time ordering with them so far, I am sorry to hear that other people have had bad experiences! I will likely order from them again, though.

    I love these! I recently put the Fuchsia one over an Essie pink and it was amazing! They last a long time without chipping too.

      I don’t generally wear polish longer than a day but you’re right – when I wear Kleancolor I don’t get much chipping, just sometimes chip wear depending on top coat!
