Nails of the week – holographic

About a month ago, I was quite upset to find out (two years too late!) I completely missed Gosh’s holographic nail polish, so I went on a quest to source it. After seeing it going on eBay for quite a lot of money (some in excess of £20 with p&p), I decided to look for an alternative.

I found Color Club Worth the Risque, which seemed very lovely and with good reviews, and that’s what I am wearing this week. This polish is a silver holographic, with amazing rainbow shine, and plenty of sparkle.

Having never used a holo nail polish before, only a topcoat; I was very surprised at the coverage. This varnish is quite thick, so just one coat would definitely be ok, but I opted for two.

The colour is stunning and solid; a pretty muted silver indoors (sometimes you can see the rainbow effect, but not always), medium to fine grain glitter but smooth, however, the beauty of this polish lays when it catches the light, it is truly mesmerising, with amazing depth. It seems to be chip resistant, but it has two minor cons: it seems to scratch quite easily, and it hasn’t got a fast drying time, making it quite easy for you to mess up after application.

Apart from that, I am very pleased with it. It doesn’t seem to be as pretty as some pictures of the Gosh one I have seen around the internet, but I really like it! I was a bit worried as I tend not to wear light shades on my nails, but this is rather beautiful!

Have you tries holographic nail varnish before? What are your favourites?

Once again I went crazy on nail polishes, buying a couple from Sephora last weekend in Paris and three (you heard it – THREE) Andrea Fulerton Trios, which I will be trying on soon!
