China Glaze – When Stars Collide
I was very excited when I heard about the new China Glaze Holographic collection. Finally, I was able to pick up two of the polishes from the collection at Sally Beauty this week. However, I am pretty disappointed. I think they were hyped up too much because the holo just isn’t that great!
There are much better holographic polishes out there. What you see here in the pictures is when the polish looks most holographic, which isn’t that often. To top it off, you can only really see it under certain light. In the sun it doesn’t show up at all. (With other awesome holographic polishes, you can still get a glimpse of the holo even in sunlight.) The color of this polish is pretty so it is still neat to wear, especially when you get a tiny glimpse of the holo.
I must say that this holographic polish is probably the easiest to apply and drys quick. It also has full coverage with one coat. However, I would rather have finicky polish with a great holo.
I don’t really recommend these polishes if you are looking for holographic nail polish. Nfu Oh has some AMAZING holographic polishes, especially when used with their Aqua Base. I have only posted about one of them so far, Nfu Oh 64. I will be posting up the rest of the Nfu Oh holographic polishes in the future.
Also, I would like to mention that I even used Nfu Oh – Aqua Base to amp up the holo in this polish! It’s probably even duller with out using it.
The pictures above are shown wearing Nfu Oh – Aqua Base and one coat of polish.
