Kleancolor ~ Sparkling Grapes


Kleancolor ~ Sparkling Grapes
Magenta/pink loaded with shimmer


Here’s another one of my Kleancolors. I’m always curious when I try a new one, because I never know whether to expect a fantastic formula or a poor one.

This one happened to be great. The polish glided on easily and had a pretty good coverage. It was almost a one coater, but I gave it two, to even out irregularities. Drying time between the coats is a killer, like it often is with Kleancolor polishes, so I had to put on my patient face, even though patience isn’t one of my strongest assets. :D

Here are two coats – no top coat yet:



What’s with the name, anyway? I’ve never seen a grape in a colour like this!

I stamped on it, using a no name polish from Bornprettystore called “Suzy skis in the Pyrenees”, which is a deep, velvety purple with a suede finish. I wonder where they get their names? Anyway, the polish is thick and pretty opaque, and therefore good for stamping. The stamping plate is called H22. I applied one coat of Seche Vite top coat.

Here’s the result:



It’s more subtle in real life than it appears on the picture, but I quite like it.



Opacity: 8/10
Colour, prettiness: 8/10
Durability: 7/10
Value for money: 7/10
Overall: 7.5/10
Buy again: Yes

    1. Putter du også Seche Vite på imellem lagene? Det har jeg aldrig gjort, selvom jeg har været fristet ind imellem :D
      Men tak. Jeg blev også selv ret tilfreds. :)

    3. Haha ja, det kan jeg forestille mig!! Jeg har sådan nogle super fast dry dråber, jeg kan dryppe på det færdige resultat hvis det er helt umuligt at få til at tørre. :D
