China Glaze Don't Be A Square

I can never get enough holographics. I mean, honestly, they're so gorgeous!

China Glaze Don't Be A Square from the Kaleidoscope collection released in Spring of 2009 is a light pink holographic beauty. This is my favorite light pink holo. This collection is perfect. It applies beautifully and I think they're all opaque at 2 coats. DBAS is for sure. They dry super fast. They're the perfect polish for a quickie mani. My wear time is just fine, though I've heard some say they chip quickly on them. I do use my treatment and orly bonder with these, so that may give me better wear time. I don't use top coat though, because these dull with it. I have the OPI DS top coat and I think  I'll try it with the next Kaleidoscope mani. I'll let you know how it goes.

  1. True story, holos never get old. I have a weakness for pink ones. <3

  5. Carly, I love the scattered holos. I bet you have all the OMG collection? I only have 8 of that set. Still looking for the rest though lol.

  6. I also don't use a topper on these and others like these. I have the Nfu-Oh Aqua base that I use on some holos. Surprised that you use Orly Bonder - I love it and use it for other things - but the cushion on it makes many of my polishes lift and pop off like press on nails! I never have tried it with these guys. I have used my tried and true Orly Nail Armor base that is a enrichment/treatment base with ridge filler in it - most of the time I don't have any ridges - but I still really like that base probably the best of all the ones I have.
