I am a nail polish junkie! So when I heard there was a holographic nail polish out there, I had to find it and try it out for myself. I purchased the “Flash Black” and “Mermaid Spell”. Below are the photos I took of the “Flash Black” finished product (in my car, I know, but it had the best light!!):
The effect was beautiful – in the direct sunlight! Indoors, it just looked like your run of the mill “glitter” polish. Nothing extraordinary. So when I was out running errands, and got a look at my nails outside, I had to snap some pics because I was mesmerized!!!!
I started off with “Nfu-Oh Aqua Base”, which I use for all unusual nail polishes, two coats of the hologram polish, and my go-to top coat, “Essie good to go!”.
**After I finished doing my nails, one of my cats, also mesmerized by the hologram effect, batted the polish onto the floor, strategically cornered the offending bottle, and let it know who was Boss by clawing/chewing the cap. KPsays, “Don’t mess with my cat people”.**
Even with the preventive top coat/base coat, the polish chipped big-time the next day. And continued to deteriorate throughout the week.
I was very disappointed with the whole experience. If you want to try it for yourself, I purchased the Nfu-Oh Aqua Base and the hologram Effect polishes at www.fablulousstreet.com. The polishes are $15.50 each, basecoat $12.50. The basecoat is totally worth it for other uses. If you live in a larger area than myself, your local Ulta store may have the polishes.
I apologize for not having any indoor photos. But I just didn’t see the point. This is actually my FIRST blog entry, so I will be better prepared with photos of every little thing on my next subject.
KPsays, “pass” on the hologram…..
