My love for holographic nail polishes no secret and I strongly believe in that owning enough holos is impossible. That we are now seeing more holographic nail polishes released by mainstream brands excites me after holo addicts had such a long lean period without the release of new ones. With the rise of indie brands the need for holos could be satisfied in the meantime and we are luckily still seeing new stunning and unique indie creations like NailNation 3000 Eve #403.
NailNation Eve #403 is a gorgeous, almost borderline cornflower, blue with not only linear holographic shimmer but also holographic glitter. I must admit at first I was afraid that the combination of a stronger holographic shimmer and holographic glitter would end up in NailNation 3000 Eve #403 being too gritty. Or that the fine holographic shimmer would cover up the glitter too much but both wasn’t the case. Eve is a gorgeous and unique blue linear holo with a twist.
Oh piCture pOlish Starry Night.. be still my heart. ♥
One nail polish effect I can’t get enough of is the piCture pOlish scattered holographic finish in their squishy jelly bases. Just a few weeks ago piCture pOlish Cosmos stole my heart and just one look at it made it immediately to my favorite nail polish of 2012. I knew the second I saw Cosmos that I would need every other scattered holo jelly piCture pOlish ever made and will make in the future. Kryptonite, Monroe and O’Hara – all of them. And now piCture pOlish together with llarowe did it again with their new collaboration shade Starry Night.
Every time when I am wearing a red nail polish like the beautiful Cirque Curiosity from the Objet d’Art Collection I am asking myself why I am not wearing red nails more often. They are classy, beautiful, bright and gorgeous to look at.
Cirque Curiosity is such a bright, saturated and eye catching tomato red. It reminds me of OPI Dear Santa which is one of my favorite reds with shimmer flecks but Curiosity seems to be even brighter and also the gold shimmer flecks, which are almost insivible once Dear Santa was on my nails, are more prominent. The shimmer flecks in Curiosity are smaller too. So delicate, so pretty. ♥
Confession time: I am a holoholic. When I see new collections with holographic nail polishes I don’t sit down and think which colors I like and could buy. No. The only thing that crosses my mind is MUST BUY ALL THE HOLOS!
When news came up about a new holographic collection by China Glaze called Hologlam a few months ago I knew I would need them all. They are due to release this Spring but Susan from The Subtle Shimmer already found them in Singapore. Sadly the Hologlam collection appears to be not as holographic as the highly coveted OMG collection from Spring 2008 but they still look gorgeous.
To celebrate that I can get my hands on the China Glaze Hologlam beauties I decided to wear China Glaze DV8 from my most beloved OMG collection. I was considering to wear DV8 or LOL but DV8 won.
There are nail polishes which cause an instant desire to own them the second you see them. You see a swatch and know you would love to own and wear it.
When I saw Sam’s gorgeous swatches of Deborah Lippmann Raise Your Glass I was mesmerized. Mesmerized and sure I would never be able to paint my nails with this beauty.
Deborah Lippmann Raise Your Glass was released exclusively to Holt Renfrew stores to celebrate their 175th Anniversary. If it wasn’t for the kind and generous help of Eugenia (you need to check Eugenia’s gorgeous swatches of Deborah Lippmann Raise Your Glass as well) owning Raise Your Glass would have stayed a dream.. but Eugenia made it come true. Thank you so so much! ♥
