Why hello again my sweeties! It’s time for another Holo Humpday, and I am SO excited to show you this one. I took a chance with this polish from KBShimmer because chartreuse has the potential to look terrible on me. But I don’t own ANYTHING like it, so I had to buy Ins And Sprouts from the recent Spring 2015 collection!
I mean, WHOA baby! And this totally deserves a Joey from Blossom “Whoa!” C’mon – you 90s children know what I’m talking about right?
So yeah, this polish is amazing! Surprisingly enough, I adore the color. I’m usually not a huge chartreuse fan, but this baby called to me when I first saw swatches of the Spring collection. First, Christy was calling this an ultra-holo and how on earth could I deny myself an ultra-holo?! And then the beautiful swatches came – it seemed like it looked perfect on everyone! So I had to try it!
YAAAAS! It’s this odd light yellow-green chartreuse, which doesn’t sound beautiful. But dayumn, it really is! It’s like the kind of chartreuse you’d see in the iridescent yellow-green Easter basket grass, but it’s so flattering and unique on the nail.
And that holo! I think this totally qualifies as an ultra-holo. The linear flame is crazy intense – I mean I had no sun to work with, so all these pics are indoors and the holo is still amazing!
Check out the closeup too:
Love. Just plain love this! Plus the formula is perfect – it’s opaque in 1-2 coats depending on the thickness. The 2nd coat intensifies the color and holo effect.
What do you think? Did you pick up any of the KBShimmer ultra-holos or any of the other Spring polishes?
Ok off-topic now… my husband just stole my computer when I left the room and added some lovely notes lol. I debated deleting it, but I wanted to show you how adorably silly my man is. In case you’re just here for the polish, feel free to stop reading and just appreciate the pretty pictures! I’ll leave you with the daily David Tennant, and then Mr. Doctor Crafty’s note will be below 🙂

Evil-Joyful Laugh! Hello, Everyone! Your friend is in the other room doing other-things. I wanted to say two thoughts about my special lady friend:
1. Dr C hardly ever lets me touch her laptop. This is more laptop touches than I’ve had all month! This is the truth-speaking.
2. I wanted to say thank you for all the love you show Dr C. WHY? ??
When she started getting into nail art, well, at first I was skeptical. I thought it was, hmmm? “Why is this love person making very tiny paintings? Why does she not make me ham sammich?”
I have come to see nail art something akin to Tibetan mandalas, impermanent meditations that live in the moment. The designs can be beautiful, but fleeting.
I have come to see nail art as “real” art, highly creative and skillful. There are so many techniques, textures, tools, and techniques to consider. Within what I thought was a small niche, there is a world of possibilities.
I have come to see nail art as social – and this is where you come in. Dr C loves seeing what you have come up with, and sharing what she does.
Now that I have nail art, she even paints my toes!
So yeah, I married that man. Silly sweet man 🙂
