This nail polish is discontinued. I first found it in a salon, when I was done my manicure I wanted to steal it, but I didn't! A couple months later after searching high and low, I found it on eBay. If you can get your hands on this you will not regret it! The pink holographic in this are stunning.
China Glaze's How About a Tumble is a pale to light pink-lavendar sparkly holographic polish. The holo effect shows blue, gold, pink, silver, and green basically all at once. It's very "blingy." However, the color is very washed out and tends to blend into my pale with slight yellow undertones skin tone in an almost "mannequin hands" manner. (Actually, this color is a blingier dupe to Nubar's Brilliant.) The application was a little on the tricky side with bald patches but subsequent coats covered them up nicely. The polish was pretty well opaque in three coats and drying time was very quick (unusual for some CG polishes). While this a pretty color and I indicated that I would buy it again, I'm on the fence as it is almost too pale for me.
This is lavender saturated with silver and blue holographic glitter. Has a bit too much grey IMO, but lovely nonetheless. One coat is enough for total opacity. I got this at Ulta for $7.50.
This color is an olive drab green but it's full of light. First, it's very sheer and barely becomes opaque after 2 coats. Very shimmery and the shimmer is gold/bronze. The vehicle is however pure green. Very similar to OPI Greenwich Green which I also reviewed.Actually when I got Cat's Eye in a transdesign order my first thought was, I have to get rid of this color as it's too much like Greenwich Green. However, I now see there is a subtle difference so I'm keeping both. The difference is that there's simply more light in this shade. The OPI is more metallic and gives off less light, and it has more coverage. Yet this tone is warmer and a bit more zingy on my hands. I haven't used it on my toes yet. So I would get this green if you are comfortable with green but you feel the gold in this would match your eyes or skin. As a pale olive myself, I found this to be a great match, thus it gets 5 lipsticks. I am neutral but on the warm side of the spectrum.Look at my pictures if you want to see an ok photo of Cat's Eye and Greenwich Green.
This color is so cool. it reminds me of what jane Magical mushroom would look like if it were a nail polish. It is a very neat looking green with lots of brown undertones and nice and shiny. So unusual and pretty. The packaging is really nice. This is going to be a staple for me this fall.
