Chanel Kaleidoscope With Geometric Stamping (52 Week Challenge)
This week’s 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge calls for a water marble and/or your most precious polish. I have only just done a water marble, so I used my most precious polish, Chanel Kaleidoscope, with geometric stamping added.
Chanel Kaleidoscope is my most precious polish because it’s the one that is probably worth the most. It’s an old Chanel, that was a limited edition. Chanel polishes tend to grow in value over time and I’ve seen this one on eBay for more than £70.
It’s from the Fall 2008 Golden Child collection. I’m still unsure what colour it is though. Is it gold? Silver? Pewter? Antique gold? Platinum? Tarnished gold? I believe Chanel described it as a green-gold, but I don’t see any green in it. Despite being unable to pin down its precise colour, I think it has a complexity that gives it an allure for me that no other gold shade has. Gold doesn’t really suit me plain, but I like this with stamping or something else added.
I stamped a geometric pattern using Konad Black and Born Pretty Store BP-13. The stamping is really patchy. I think it’s due to my Konad Black being on its last legs, and also because I didn’t use my favourite stamper. I used a more squishy one because my base hadn’t been left to dry for as long as it could have, and I was worried about denting it with my firmer – albeit more reliable – stamper.
