Holo Heaven

I just can't seem to get enough holographic nail polishes lately.  Especially linear holos.  My lil heart just goes pitty pat when I see the rainbow glide across my nails as they move.  Yes, psychological help is probably in order...just not very likely.

I've already posted my favorite holo I own so far...Sally Hansen Magical Nail Makeup in Mystical Mandarin.  Boy THAT'S a mouthful.

Here it is again.

So I'm making this week HOLO Week!  The nails are starting to grow back out and I decided to wear Nfu-Oh #62, which is the pink holo, for the last few days.  Pink's not my favorite color but holo makes everything okay.

Nfu-Oh goes on like a DREAM.  This time, I used the Nfu-Oh Aqua Base first.  I didn't really notice any difference in application with or without it, but adding the Seche Vite Top Coat made it like glass. Just perfection. It doesn't have the depth of color as the Sally Hansen Magical Nail Makeup, but it has one major thing going for it that SH doesn't.  It's still AVAILABLE!  eBay is the only place to find the SH one and it's a crap shoot as to whether it's still in good shape, not old and gloppy, more than half full, etc.

Tonight I decided to change to a blue holo - OPI Designer Series Sapphire - for the weekend.

The application is not as good as Nfu-Oh, and it's not quite as linear but all in all, it's a great polish. It did take 3 coats for me to feel like I got great coverage, but still okay.  The coats were light and it dries fast.

Clearly, I need to get more holos.
