I recently got a swap package from Sam over at The Real Polish Princess (who actually has an amazing giveaway on at the moment with a lot of sort after holo polishes, including some CG Kaleidoscopes, Glitter Gals, Ozotic Pros etc - go on, get over there and enter). She was kind enough to send me all the Kleancolor Chunky Holos, and this one, Chunky Holo Scarlet, jumped right in there with my other favourite red polishes and made its way into my Red Week.
These chunky holos have been all over blogs at the moment. But first, let me just confirm that the use of the word 'holo' in the title of these is totally misleading for anyone that thinks they might be getting a holographic polish. These should be called chunky duochrome glitters.
All these Chunky holos actually have the exact same glitter in them, which shifts yellow to red, but they are all in a different coloured base. If you layered them all over black they are all the same (except holo black because of the different sized glitter). Scarlet is by far the most saturated colour, and possibly the only one that could be worn on its own without layering.
The duochrome glitters in these can actually be seen better indoors or in the shade rather than in full sun.
The other thing that everyone says with these polishes is that they are stinky. And yep, its true, they are smelly. It's the sort of smell I reckon lacquers would have smelt like in the 1950's. Totally worth the smell for the colour. Thanks Sam, I love them. Expect to see them all swatched soon.
