China Glaze’s Kaleidescope collection

This collection, released two years before the OMG collection, was a dozen nail colors with holographic effects. The holographic was more scattered, though - you don’t get the rainbow/oil-slick effect when using these colors. These were divided into warm and cool sets. I don’t like the scattered holographic effects on these colors as much as I like the linear holographic effects of the OMG colors. I do like the true-green base color of He’s Going In Circles, and the charcoal base-color of Let’s Do It In 3-D. Neither of those two colors have equivalents in either the OMG or Tronica collections. However, the OMG collection does have DV8 and 2NITE, both of which are darker blue bases rather than Kaleidescope Him Out’s medium-light blue.

Cool Colors

I definitely got into nail polish after this collection was long since released-and-nearly sold out; but I did manage to snag several colors. There are some base color equivalencies with the OMG (and Tronica) colors, though some - He's Going In Circles, Let's Do It In 3-D, Visit Me In Prism - don't have equivalents in those later-released collections. The OMG base colors are also a bit more vivid, as well as metallic.

  • Don't Be A Square = TMI
