This scattered holographic by Julep probably won’t stun those of you who are used to indie holos. I kind of think of them more as job interview holo. You notice it up close, but nobody else will.
You do, however, get a rich swath of color in one coat. We’re talking color-in-the-bottle one coat. I have since used other shades and they’re just as nice. My personal opinion as someone who likes holos so bright you can see them from space is meh. But it’s a good bet for someone who’s just getting into different finishes. I may try to use them for stamping.
I also wanted to try out some Color Club polishes – I found some of their holos online and couldn’t resist. Because, holo. This one is a very light lavendar that comesnoff as gray on the nail in some lights. It’s rainbow factor is high and linear. It’s coverage is excellent! I did two just to maximize the color, but you could do with one in a pinch.
There’s a lot of KB Shimmer on this blog. I’m okay with that! It is, hands down, my favorite indie nail polish brand. This spring they came out with the Mega Flame collection full of gorgeous scattered holo polishes.
This one is the perfect rose color and the rainbow factor is astronomical.
I got it opaque in 2 coats. I tried a third coat on one of my fingers thinking it might deepen the color, but it really didn’t. For me, this is a solid year-round color and I’ll get a ton of use out of it.
This gray holographic will become a fall and winter staple for me. The linear shift is subtle, yet noticable. It has a stellar formula like most from this brand, opaque in two coats.
I have been crazy for holographic lately, and this new indie brand does it up right. I got this deep rose opaque in two coats. It did chip on me after a couple of days, but almost everything does. It was well worth the sparkle.
This beautiful raisin holographic is probably more appropriate for fall but I don’t care. It’s beautiful, opaque in 1-2 coats, and makes me very happy.
This pretty holographic has a really dark blue base. Neither photo does this one justice – I need to start taking my holo and glitter pics outside. This one has a lovely formula and is opaque in 2 coats.
