Beginning at 7pm-ish, clockwise, 2x each:
1 – China Glaze Fairy Dust, oh-so-fine holo particles
2 – Flormar 392, guau!
3 – Risqué Isabeli Fontana Star, not my favorite but someone in the shop liked it cos all gummed up and tested when she arrived to me.
4 – Mohda Intensificador Holografico, larger holo particles
5 – Essence Colour & Go Can’t Cheat On Me, not-so-holo
6 – Impala Celebrate Brinde Comigo!, love this, subtle fine scattered and linear holo
7 – Nfu-Oh 61 (dud version, not sure which in the dud sequence) – chunky and icky albeit a brand new bottle
8 – Dance Legend T-1000 – wow, wow, wow… smooth and HOLO a la ChG OMG on steroids
9 – Glitter Gal Green 3D/Holo (included here cos it’s silvery with a green cast) – pretty!
10 – Kiko Holographic 400 – wanted to love this like I love the beige one in the series, but it’s much darker swatched than in the bottle with less holo and didn’t look or wear so hot on my nails
11 – China Glaze Holographic Cosmic Dust – big disappointment; I paid full price of $14 USD for this when it first debuted last year. I’ll never forget how it flew off my nail in a complete layer when I was getting out of my car… there was a small yet intact sheet of holo paint visible on the parking lot asphalt!
12 – Catherine Arley 667 – my bottle or swatch doesn’t look as holo as others I’ve seen
13 – Layla Flash Black – want to love this, but it doesn’t look good on me
14 – Hits Speciallita No Olimpo Zeus – ditto #13
15 – Glitter Gal Lizard Belly 3D/Holo – ditto #13
