China Glaze - Kaleidoscope Collection - 4 Swatches

Good morning everyone! Today I'll be showing you 4 polishes from one of the most popular (and hard-to-find) China Glaze collections, the Kaleidoscope Collection.

2 of these polishes are mine and 2 of them belong to my friend Emma who let me swatch them for your viewing pleasure! (And also so I could decide if I wanted to get them for myself.)

I'll show you the two I do own first. (My favorites!)

China Glaze - He's Going In Circles
This was the first Kaleidoscope I felt I needed and an amazing friend, Laurie, got it for me for my birthday!
(You may remember Laurie from her guest posts here and here - she won't be needing anymore though because she's just started her own blog! Check her out at Dressed Up Digits.)
He's Going In Circles is a light seafoamy green scattered holo, and I adore it. The color is so "me" and the holo effect in these polishes is unlike any other holos, it's scattered and sparkly and pretty. I love it!

Before I go on to the other polishes, I'll tell you where they came from.
Another great friend, Chelsea from Pretty and Polished, does a lot of dusty hunting. She finds beauties like these and other Kaleidoscope/OMG polishes and she sells them on her blog for really great prices.
Not only does she sell hard-to-find polishes, she sells her own custom frankens too!
Check out her Etsy store here, she has amazing polishes! I have 3 of those babies to show you and I hope to swatch them soon!

Okay, after that name dropping, we are ready for the other 3 polishes.

China Glaze - How About A Tumble
This one is a beauty, too. I thought I only needed the green one, but then I saw this one! It's a pretty pink shade, purple-toned. Yum yum yum.

China Glaze - Don't Be A Square
This is another pink but a more salmon-colored pink. This one is lovely, they're pretty much all lovely.
The formula on all of these is good too, 3 coats but they apply really easily.

China Glaze - Kaleidoscope Him Out
This is probably my favorite name from the collection! It sounds like a pun OPI would use. This color is also lovely, it's a light blue with the same pretty sparkly scattered holo.

There are 8 more colors from this collection that neither myself or my friend have, so I don't know if I will ever show you more of them. Maybe someday I'll buy a few more. There are more pretty ones!
(But I am not going to get all 12 like I did with OMG. My wallet can't handle that.)


  1. love these! I only have the green but think that the kaleidoscopes don't get the attention they deserve!

  4. oh how beautiful is the 70688 I fell in love that color!

  5. I love these. I had everyone of them except for How About A Tumble, but the only one I have left is He's Going In Circles. I used the others up!

  6. I really wish I had gotten a hold of some of these. They're so drool-worthy

  7. Took me a long time but finally I won all of this collection. Sexogen is my fav (most of the time).

  8. They're all very pretty and amazing!

  9. Oh wow awesome colors! The last one is not exactly my taste but LOVE the rest

  10. Do You know anyone who still sells the OMG collection for a reasonable price?
