Holographic Nails

While browsing through my local Shoppers Drug Mart, I found myself looking at their Gosh collection as I always do. They have some special edition polishes and while picking up each one to examine the colour, I noticed the holographic polish!  The light wasn't hitting it right while sitting in the display so one would have thought it was just a plain shimmery silver. The polish was less than $7.

There was no second thought, Holographic Hero was coming home with me.

Holographic polishes are tough to photograph!

Be sure to apply a base coat. This polish becomes opaque after about 3 coats.
Do not apply a top coat! It will dull the holographic effect.
Thumb has top coat. Notice how it just looks like a regular silver

Do not apply a top coat! It will dull the holographic effect.

The bottle does say "One Night Wear for Holographic Lovers", so they're not making any claims about it lasting 5 days or anything. However, I will say that it has lasted me about 28 hours before a major chip.

After 53 hours (including 8 work hours at a computer all day and not picking at the polish!)

Have you tried any holographic polishes?



  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE is all I can say and now I got to have.

    1. haha I know! One of the sales ladies said that they were having a hard time keeping it on the shelves, however a friend of mine found one at the first SDM she went to! Good luck if you're gonna be on the prowl :)
