Hello, m'dears!

The other day I came across Milly's post on GOSH's Holographic nail polish and it reminded me that I had this little beaut lying around in one of my boxes of nail polishes (Anyone else store their nail stuff in a shoe box?). I dug it out and tried to remember myself why I stopped showing it any love?

The result?

Pretty! It definitely lives up to it's name.

But why did I decide to chuck this in my box and leave it to be forgotten about? The application was okay. I didn't find it steaky but I did find I needed to apply 3 coats to make it completely opaque and for the full holographic effect. It also chips like crazy! I usually paint my nails at night, I found the next day it began chipping away like there was no tomorrow. And by 4pm, it started looking like I've had this stuff on my nails for about a week. EWWW! And chipped nail polish is a pet peeve of mine.

*chucks bottle back into the unwanted box of polishes*

I'd love to try out another holographic polish that lasts. Any recommendations, darls?

  1. ah, thank you for the mention. it is such a gorgeous, jazzy nail varnish, but I totally agree with you. It only lasted for one day and then...chips galore. But was fun whilst it lasted. x

  3. I have this on now! I agree with you though, three coats to opaque and it chipped the next day, however I keep painting over the chips, this manicure WILL last more than the usual 2 days after the effort I put in to jazz it up! xx
