Happy Monday everyone!! Just wanted to pop in with some quick swatches today. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you know that I have a slight obsession with Kleancolor Metallic polishes. I have swatched about half of the ones that I have so far and I wanted to do another one today. Today's color is Metallic Aqua, an amazing metallic aqua polish.
The swatches below are 2 coats with topcoat. The use of topcoat really seems to make these polishes come alive, it's hard to explain unless you've seen it for yourself. Topcoat will deepen the color and on some, make the color appear even more metallic. So cool! These polishes are available on Beauty Joint for $1.75 a piece so they are some of the least expensive polishes that I own. They're great for stamping as well!
Here's a quick pros and cons list regarding Kleancolor Metallics-
- Take forever to dry, even with a quick dry top coat
- Due to the metallic finish, they will show every flaw on your nail
- Stain the CRAP out of your nails and surrounding skin, even with multiple layers of base coat (UPDATED TO ADD: Just removed Metallic Aqua, it did not stain at all!)
- Dirt cheap
I don't know about you, but I think the pros definitely outweigh the cons here =) So here's 2 coats of Kleancolor Metallic Aqua, in various lighting situations. Don't forget to click to enlarge =)
What do you think? Do you own any Kleancolor Metallics?
Thanks for stopping by!
