Let's take a sneak peek at Kelara One Man Wolf Pack, which is part of their Double Rainbow holographic polish line.

*I was not financially compensated for this post.  All items in this review were purchased by me for my own use.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.  For more information, please see my Disclosure Policy in the tab above.*

Color: Gun metal silvery gray holographic.

Finish: Holographic – pigment gives polish a rainbow in the sunshine.

Bottle / Brush: TKB hexagon – lid is tapered at the bottom and larger at the top, which helps with handling the brush and application.  The wand is an average length.  The brush is thin but long, so you have to make sure you don’t load up on polish on your brush otherwise it may pool up on your cuticles.

Opacity: High – opaque in two coats!
Glitter Application: N/A

Consistency: Medium – applies easily and doesn’t flood the cuticles.
Overall Ease of Application: Medium – applies well with minimal pooling, dragging, streaking, or balding.  Spreads well without much manipulation.

Stampability: Not tested for stamping.
Dry Time: Medium – dry to the touch with minimal smudging in 3-8 minutes.

Overall Thoughts:  Kelara is one of my favorite indie brands for a reason!  The consistency of One Man Wolf Pack is soooo good.  Sometimes holos are a massive pain in the butt to apply, but I can honestly say that isn't the case with any of the polishes from the Double Rainbow collection.  Wolf Pack has elements of linear and scattered holoness, which makes it really pop in the sunlight.  It definitely leans more toward gun metal silver that looks a little like stainless steel than silver.  The rainbow isn't very strong in indoor lighting, but it's still very pretty.  In the sun, though, the rainbow shines through easily.  I have used two coats here, and it's perfect!

You can purchase Kelara Lacquers at their store or Etsy.  Also, follow them on Facebook and Twitter for news and updates on new collections.

Do you own any Kelaras?  Which is your favorite?
