Hey everyone! Check out Harri at TrailerHood Chic, she rocks pretty hard :) Thanks for guest blogging Harri! (you can click to enlarge her collage)
Hey y'all! My name is Harri and I have a blog over at TrailerHood Chic. Kristin asked for some people to do guest posts and I jumped at the opportunity. Kristin is wonderful & her blog name cracks me up. When I sat down for a swatch fest I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for my post. Then I remembered I'd bought a TON of polishes over the weekend. :D
Three of my new polishes are 3 of the Essence @ Holografics.com (yes it's spelled different I checked the bottle). There are 5 colors in this collection, but both Ulta's I went to only had a display with 3 colors and only had 2 of each color. There were no more spots on the display for the other two. SO, the ones I have are 01 GAGALECTRIC, 03 BLUE RAY, and 04 PRISM@TIC WHITE. Those missing are 02 LIL@C and 05 HOLOBERRY.
To me, these really don't look holographic, except in the bottle on the nail they're more duochrome-y (yes, that's a word). I'm not really sure how I feel about these yet, but I'll give you a little info on them.
~03 BLUE RAY (upper left) - This is 2 coats AND a top coat only because I was going to layer the other 2 over to see what they looked like. It's a beautiful blue that flashes to purple. Really liked this one.
~01 GAGALECTRIC (upper right). - This is 4, yes FOUR coats. I definitely think this is better as a layering polish. Maybe over another lavender, white, or black color. It's like lavender with a light blue flash. Unsure of it still.
~04 PRISM@TIC WHITE (bottom right) - This is 3 coats. Also, in my opinion, better as a layering polish. I'm OCD and hate seeing VNL with any polishes. It's an extremely sheer white with what looks like a light blue flash, but in the bottle looks yellow/green. I'm tempted to take this one back. :/
~The bottom left pic is 2 coats of Blue Ray with 1 coat of the others. Prism@tic White is on the index and ring ringers. Gagalectric is on the middle and pinky fingers. Doesn't really look much different to me & in fact, it makes the blue look teal.
I think I've rambled enough for these. Be sure to come check out my blog. I have a giveaway ending mid October you might want to check out. :D
