When you already have 101 holographic polishes (randomly generated figure plucked out of the air as I actually refuse to count my polishes), you tend to become a little picky when it comes to your holographic shine. Not just any old slight rainbow shimmer is going to cut it. So when China Glaze announced a release of holo's that were similar to their OMG collection....well, I knew I would wait to see it before I believed it.
It turns out, I was a little disappointed as the rainbow flash isn't quite fabulous. In fact, it's hardly there at all. Even under artificial lighting. After studying online swatches and realising this, I only purchased 3 and here they are:
This is my favourite of the 3, When Stars Collide, 2 coats. The color as a holographic is original, especially in a general branded polish and I really, really like it.
Cosmic Dust, 2 coats. This is about the 6th different silver holo I now have but we must own ALL the silvers. Out of them all, this is the least holo in my collection.
Strap On Your Moonboots, 2 coats. If you have been spoiled by DS Glamour then this baby is just going to make you want to cry. It's a nice, dusky dark blue but not the rainbow blinding polish you want it to be. As you can see, out of the 40 photos I took these were the ones with the most rainbow flash.
Did you guys get a different reaction to the new ChG holos?
