China Glaze Let's Do It In 3-D

I follow a few Tumblr "blogs" (I don't really know what you'd call them, maybe it's just "tumblr"?) and I've been noticing a lot of China Glaze Let's Do It In 3-D postings from their Kaleidoscope collection.  This is a rainbow holo (not linear) in a charcoal grey base that I originally hated.  Seriously, I nearly gave it away last year because I was so underwhelmed by this polish.  Today I decided to try again.

I used a base coat of Nfu-Oh Aqua Base which takes a bit longer to dry than normal base coats because of its thickness, but provides a nice smooth base for the nail polish.  Next I added three thin coats of Let's Do It In 3-D.  And then I fell in love.

Not going to lie - I took about 50 pictures.  However, I'm going to spare you and only show the best one that showed you that holo goodness we all love.  Yay!

However in the shade, well you know the story.
Boo shade.

Indoors with the flash provided a bit more holographic pictures, but not by much.  This is definitely a "wear in the sun and blind everyone" type of polish - which is fine by me.

While this color is discontinued, you can find it sometimes on eBay (ouch on prices) or in small/local beauty supply stores or salons.
