Seizing My Golden Opportunity

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 2/17/2011 07:05:00 PM
It is a great pleasure to show you a swatch in GOLD!  Not just a regular gold but, a gold holo...
I got this at a new to me Beauty Supply know, the ones that sell hair.  Hee hee!  This is Kleancolor's 'Holo Yellow.'  I quickly scanned the polish rack for other Holos and found 4 more.  I checked online and I got all from this collection except for a pink.
I'm not a fan of yellow polish at all.  Not that I don't think it looks OK on me, it's just not a color I gravitate to.  Not even in clothing.  But 'Holo Yellow' is a yellow with gold in it that got me to say 'it's doable!'

Here's why I couldn't resist...
A gold-ish yellow with enough glitter to keep the Tooth Fairy flush for a couple of years.  Lots and lots of gold and iridescent micro-glitter.  It was soupy the first couple of coats but, I got it in line after the third coat and gave it a 'wow, glad I tried this' nod.
Morning sunlight is sooo gorgeous to photograph with.  Too bad I'm not a morning person.  But I have been capturing some swatches first thing in the morning before I go out there and work.  My work tends to be very rough on manicures.  However, this is my ring finger and I like everything about this; the length of the nail, its shape, the way the color looks with my skin tones, and it doesn't seem to be a finger I choose to chew.  If my cuticles were cigarettes, I'd be smoking 2 to 3 packs a day!!! 

I have Seche Clear and then a coat of Nailene's Miracle Maker as a top coat.  'Holo Yellow' didn't need much help to be shiny though.  It held up to shine all by itself.  Reminds me of gold lame pants.

I'm not sure this is a true 'holographic' but, what do you think?  Do you wear yellow polish and if so, what brand?

Nailene's Miracle Maker was sent to me for review. These are my honest opinions on the product.

Yellow doesn't tend to flatter me, but it is Mr. Karen's favorite color so I do wear it sometimes. This one looks pretty!

Wow this is really pretty for a yellow. :)

This is a really pretty yellow. I think it looks good on you. :)

I'm not a big yellow fan myself I do have some. Yellows need to impress me. lol

Gorgeous! I agree about the yellow thing. It always makes my hands look... dirty, almost? Which is sad because I love bright neon yellow polish.
:( But! This one looks stunning!

It reminds me of China Glaze Lighthouse! Yellow is so cheery but I know once I slap it on my nails I'll look jaundiced for sure. =(

It's pretty nice, much better than a matte yellow.

Great post title btw!

@KarenD That's sweet that you wear it for Mr.Karen. My hubs is color blind so actually, he likes everything I wear. Just like I taught

@Ashley That's what I thought too.

@MissMidnightBlue I felt this one did just that, I got impressed.

@Lace Escapades & @Kee That's the word-jaundice! Yellow usually means not health on the body...yellow, teeth, yellow skin, yellow eyes, etc.

@nicolthepickle Boy, a matte yellow would NOT look good on me. I'd like to see it rockin' on someone, but I don't know. And thank you. :)
