Vintage Challenge: China Glaze Visit Me in Prism - swatches and review

Today it's double holo joy for me! It's both Vintage Challenge Holo Day AND Holo Friday!

Christine and I have decided that today's theme for our Vintage Challenge is "Holo" and I've got such a treat for you! This is the pretty Visit Me in Prism from China Glaze's epic collection Kaleidoscope released in 2009. It's a pale plumish pink with a weak but beautiful holo effect.

If you want to know more about the Vintage Challenge and how to join click here.



GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Holographic.

Color: A pale plumish pink with a weaker holographic effect.

Number of coats: Three. I think it's possible to get away with two coats though.

Formula: Excellent formula! Very easy to control. When it's wet there is almost no rainbows at all but as it dries they appear. It dries fairly fast. No bald spots or holo sickness warning.

Brush: A nice brush. A bit thin but still ok.

Top Coat: No.

Color accuracy in pictures: Accurate, but as often with holo - much more vivid and beautiful live!

Grade: 5/5

To me this is almost like a nude holo polish. It's perfect when you want something less in-your-face but still amazingly beautiful! I've almost used half my bottle by now and that's a lot in my book ;) It's time to start saving on those precious drops left...

How do you like Visit Me in Prism?

    3. It's a difference between applying it and wearing it dear donkey... :P
      Yes, I think we should invest in an aqua base for our holos!! They say Nfu Oh's the best.

    1. Yes, it was an amazing collection!! I bought my bottle 2009 and I think CG released a new batch by then but it's very possible that the very first batch was released as early as 2006.

  11. Åh vilken blingig skönhet! Min favorit från Kaleiodscope är Let's do it in 3D men det är för att jag bara har den och en till, den blekgröna. Allra snyggast baserat på andras swatcher tror jag dock att jag tycker att det lila är...
