China Glaze - Kaleidoscope Him Out

Howdy, kittens!  Today I'd like to share a mani I did with one of my most cherished polishes, China Glaze's Kaleidoscope Him Out.  As you probably know, this polish is part of the coveted Kaleidoscope collection of amazing scattered holos that China Glaze, sadly, released several years ago, long before the sleeping lion of polish addiction awakened within me.  However, thanks to a swap (with whom I sadly cannot recall.  If it was YOU, please remind me) this lemming was FILLED, baby.  Sky blue holos, in all their forms, are my DREAM POLISHES.  If I could own every variation of sky blue holo in existence, Kari would be a VERY happy camper.  But I digress, on to the pics:

To say that I LOVE this polish is a massive understatement.  My pictures, sadly, don't even come close to capturing its beauty but believe me, if you ever have the opportunity to get your hands on it, do so post hastily!  Even though I received it at least six months ago, this was the first time I ever used it, aside from swatching it on my nail wheel.  It wasn't due to lack of interest, I assure you.  I am just so fearful of using it all up as I know I can't afford to replace it.  Still, as my husband would say, "don't buy polish to hoard it, buy it to USE and ENJOY it."  That being said, I can't wait to use it again!

Again, if it was YOU who sent this polish to me, please refresh my memory.  I didn't photograph it when I received it, as I usually do, and I just cannot remember who the amazing person was who sent it to me.  I feel awful about it.  As I quickly approach 39, I hope my memory doesn't continue to fail me.  

UPDATE: Today, April 30, the mystery was solved!  It was my lovely and amazing friend Stacy who sent me this gorgeous polish.  She's awesome, obviously, and you should definitely check out her blog Parlez-Vous Ongles?  because it, like she, is fabulous.  I still feel like a tool for having had such a ridiculous brain fart but I am SOOOO glad to have the answer.  Woo hoo!

Wow, it really is amazing. I like the way it looks so subtle and elegant, but has all the colors in the world in it when you turn it right!
ok, this babe goes right into my "gotta get" list!

Hee hee, thanks, Jin! I promise you, it looks 1000 times better in real life. I'm not the best photographer, lol. Sky blue is my favorite color in life so I pretty much want every sky blue polish in existence but especially the holos. ;) *hugs*
