Today I’d like to show you one of the gorgeous and much hyped Catherine Arley holos. I was in the mood for a cheerful holo yesterday evening when I changed my manicure so I picked the squishy green 803:
803 is a squishy medium moss-green with a scattered holo effect. It’s so gorgeous and the application was a bliss. The first coat was a bit sheer but it was opaque with two. The formula of all Catherine Arley holo nail polishes I tried so far is so glossy. If I wouldn’t be so impatient a top coat wouldn’t be necessary because they are so shiny! But I want the nail polish to dry asap so I used a fast drying top coat. 😀
The only thing I am not too fond of are the bottles because of their shape. They are nail polish blogger unfriendly because I can’t wrap my fingers around it like I’d like to. 😛
For taking pictures of holo nail polishes I have to change my lighting setup to catch the holographic effect. Usually I use diffuse lighting but this would dull the holo effect till it’s almost invisible or even invisible at all. With holos I use a single halogen lamp in addition to my regular setup which I place right in front of the hand I am taking pictures of.
Are you a holo addict too? If yes have you already hauled Catherine Arley nail polishes?
Thanks for looking! ♥
