Throwbacks Week: China Glaze Sexagon

It's time for another week of throwbacks. I have a fairly coveted throwback to share with you today from China Glaze's Kaleidoscope collection. This is probably one of my oldest nail polishes in my collection and it's definitely one of those polishes I wouldn't ever part with under any circumstance. I'm not sure it holds the value as it did a few years ago, but it's still a treasured polish in my collection.

Sexagon is a silver scattered holo.

Collection: China Glaze Kaleidoscope 2009

Color: This is a pretty straight forward silver scattered holo. I love the glittery look of scattered holos. The holo effect here is moderate. If were to ask me about the holo effect a few years ago I'd tell you it is strong. Today, we have much stronger holos.

Formula: I think age has a done a bit of a number on this polish. It has thinned out tremendously and the pigment has separated from the base quite a bit. I had to continuously shake this one up to keep it together. I used 3 coats here.

Price: I see one bottle of this on eBay for $24. If I didn't have this I couldn't see myself paying $24 for it considering mainstream brands have lost their value in comparison to indies. That being said, if you like vintage polish it maybe worth it to you.

Overall: Sexagon is nice little gem in my collection. I can't say it's my favorite holo in the least, but 4 years ago before indies, I would of definitely said it was one of my favorites. It's a nice little polish. Time hasn't been kind to the formula, but it will remain safe in my Helmer.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Monday!
