Color Club Fashion Addict (Challenge Day 1: Favorite Polish)

Challenge accepted, challenge commenced.

Day 1 is (one of) my favorite polishes.  While I typically love and gravitate towards red and purple polishes, Fashion Addict was my first and is my favorite holo.  As you can see from my picture happiness below, without flash, this color is a really lovely lavender with pink glass flecks bordering on foil.  Once the light hits it (or flash, in this case), BAM.  It freaking glows with holo-y goodness.  My boyfriend says the holo pictures makes Fashion Addict look like something a stripper would wear in a club, but I think he just doesn't appreciate how fabulous a punch this polish packs.  Oddly enough, he likes it much better on my nail in person (he didn't even realize the pictures were of the same color I had on.)  

But I think that's what I particularly like about this color: it's quite demure in most lights, but still hides that secret rainbow of color underneath.  Color Club Revvvolution is similar in this way, but since it has a black base, you only the see the holo in strictly bright sunlight.    Fashion Addict gives a bit more of the holo away even without the flash.  Because this is one of my favorite polishes, I've also included some bottle shots.  Enjoy!

FYI: This is three coats.  Probably only needed two, but I like to add an extra when I'm using holos or sheerer bases.
