Ok, so I started February with the intentions of a no-buy through February and March as I am on holiday at the end of March and wanted to save some money to spend in France in the hope of getting some Catrice polishes. I managed to say no when Anna of Anna's Polishes Addiction emailed me about some bargain Sally Hansens which were only £1 each. Yet some 18hrs and 12mins into February 1st my no buy collapsed in tatters when I saw China Glaze Hologlam polishes ready and available to buy from NailPolishDirect. NPD were selling them at £9.95 each so I only ordered two. Since then they have knocked £1 off per bottle.
I ordered Strap On Your Moonboots which is a navy holo and Galactic Grey which is a gunmetal grey holo.
They arrived today and I was duly wowed! The pictures below were taken in indoor lighting with flash, so the holo may not be as strong as in daylight, but I wanted to share these beauties ASAP!
First up is Strap On Your Moonboots, this is two coats over my normal nail envy / matte base. No top coat. This is a dark navy denim type of blue with a subtle holo. The holo isn't as in your face as some of the Layla Holos, but the formula and application is amazing. The holo is definitely there and a linear holo.
Next is Galactic Grey. Wow. This is an amazing colour. It is definitely a gun metal colour, in some lights it leans to slightly brown. In some ways it does remind me of OPI My Private Jet, but I no longer have it to make any comparisons. It was almost perfect in one coat, but I applied two. The pictures below have no top coat.
The last picture is with a layer of Poshe, initially it looked like the holo would be dulled but no, it definitely is still there. And the wretched Poshe didn't create any bubbles! I don't get on with Poshe at all, but my Seche is lumpy and unusable right now. Seche doesn't count in the no buy stakes as I see that as essential so more is on the way!
