China Glaze IDK.


Like I said, I do have a swatch of China Glaze Strawberry Fields somewhere on my camera ... but I figured this one is cooler so Strawberry Fields got pushed to the back of the queue.  :P

I actually have quite a few CG holographics from the OMG collection: IDK (light purple), 2NITE (light blue), TMI (coral red), and LOL (purple).  I think IDK might be my favorite, though.  The holographic effect isn't quite as strong with the darker colors like LOL, so the lighter colors are more attractive to me.

And here I am, blabbering on ... swatch time!

So ... just imagine that the actual color is a mix between those two pictures, haha.  The formula is smooth and easy to work with.  Although there are three coats for this swatch, you could easily get away with two.  The top coat I used is Seche Vite.  Some people say that a shiny top coat dulls the holo effect, but I don't see that happening with my polish.  The effect is slightly dulled directly after applying the top coat, but returns full force once it is dry.

That's all for now.  Strawberry Fields is next, promise!
