This is just stunning, if I do say so myself! All of the pictures above have been taken in the sun. This is the main issue I have with holos and most blog posts about holographic nail lacquers: you see amazing swatches of the holos so you rush and buy them as soon as you can, but then you're disappointed. Why? Well, as stunning as they are in the sun, they are kind of boring once you go inside or stand in the shade. I didn't really realize this until I used the UP Colors in my above-mentioned post, but I'm not a fan of holos when I don't have the best lighting on them at all times. That being said, let me show you what this looks like without the holo effect.
This isn't quite so flashy, and in my opinion, looks a little odd! It definitely has a "dirty" appearance that won't be winning everyone over. I actually liked this particular one even like this, but I think it explains why some people just are not dazzled by the holos. The point I am trying to make and not articulating very well is to think about whether or not you like "dirty" colours when you are selecting your holographic polishes and decide if you will be majorly disappointed if you spend most of your time indoors. I personally love many murky colours- especially blues. Greige? Yes, please! Dusty purples? Gimme, gimme! At the end of the day, it all comes down to personal preference. That reminds me, I need to find a good sea foam green holo!
Until next time readers, stay good and remember: watch the road while you're driving, not your nails! ;)
