China Glaze Hologlam Collection: Swatches and Review Part 2

China Glaze Hologlam collection swatches

Ready for part 2 of my China Glaze Hologlam swatches? :D Today I am showing you the remaining six shades of the soon coming Hologlam nail polishes: Astro-Hot, Galactic Gray, Get outta my Space, Infra Red, Not in this Galaxy and When Stars collide. These six shades are the warmer colors of the China Glaze Hologlam collection and also as gorgeous as the first six shades you can see here. Just one color isn’t really my cup of tea.

Astro-Hot

China Glaze Astro-Hot is a pretty medium baby pink with the a metallic or khrome base. Like Cosmic Dust and Sci-Fly By from part 1 of my review also Astro-Hot can apply with a few minor brushstrokes due to the metallic base.

Galactic Gray

Galactic Gray is love. Do you remember the MAC eye shadow Hocus Pocus? If Cosmic Dust remembers me a bit of my beloved Smoke & Diamonds eye shadow Galactic Gray reminds me of Hocus Pocus which is a very dark taupe (or murky brown) eye shadow. The linear holographic shimmer on China Glaze Galactic Gray is also one of the stronger ones in this collection. Beautiful.

Get outta my Space

Get outta my Space (I always want to write Myspace :eek: ) also has a stronger metallic/khrome base. It is a beautiful muted warm lavender holo with a stronger holo effect though.

Infra Red

A bright holo! Finally! Infra Red is the brightest or most saturated holographic nail polish of the China Glaze Hologlam collection. As much as I love Infra Red I wish it would have been a true red holo. I do love the warm pink color but just guessing from the name alone I would have hoped for a red holo.

Not in this Galaxy

Not in this Galaxy sadly isn’t my cup of tea. Peachy nail polishes don’t look good against my skintone most of the time so I am not 100% liking how China Glaze Not in this Galaxy looks on me. It still looks better than most peachy nail polishes on me because it almost looks like a bronze color with cooler untertones instead of just peachy.

When Stars collide

When Stars collide is another one of my favorites from the China Glaze Hologlam collection. Its maroon base is beautiful and makes it – together with all darker shades from the Hologlam collection – quite unique.

The application of the last six six China Glaze Hologlam nail polishes in this post was a bliss as well. I had to be a bit more careful with the lighter colors because of the metallic base but it was easily manageable.

Even if the China Glaze Hologlam nail polishes aren’t as holographic as the OMG nail polishes I am still looking forward to buy backups. Not only because I am a holo addict but also because I really like them and I am glad I could buy them early with the help of the wonderful Susan from Singapore. ♥

What are your favorites from the Hologlams?

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! ♥

  1. I love the Galactic Gray!! It looks like the OPI Skyfall’s “The World Is Not Enough” and I love that color!!
    I wonder if it looks the same?

      I agree!! I am wondering whether to get the Galactic Grey or not as i already own ‘The World Is Not Enough’… but frankly speaking if i knew CG was coming out with it i would choose CG as it looks cooler :P

      Beautiful swatches by the way. :)
