Reverse Holo Moon Mani

My attempt at a reverse moon / half moon (not sure the official name 🙂 )

The polishes I used are Jade’s Hypnose for the “moon” and Color Club’s Revvvolution on the rest of the nail.

You Call this a Holo? #3 Review and photos: Jade Holographico “Energy” and Viva la Nails water decals

Yes, sort of.

So, we’ll be talking about the new movie Hotel Transylvania………  just kidding!   I didn’t know how to start the post, when the title was so obvious 🙂   Of course, I will be showing photos of Jade “Energy” and water decals!

The words I am typing… are nothing I’d ever thought I would say about a holographic nail polish (except for those “holo’s” from Kleancolor – as if! :)).  This particular shade:  Jade Holographica “Energy” is only “OK” looking.  Sooo SAD!!

Maybe it is just because I don’t love the color, but it doesn’t seem as “holographic” looking as the rest of the actual holo’s I own (Nfu Oh, Jade, Glitter Gal etc.)
As with the other Jade polishes I have, the application is great.  Nice and smooth, great consistency, 2 coats for opacity.  And just a little bit longer drying time if you don’t use a quick dry top coat.

You decide:

Some photos with water decals from Viva La Nails UK.

Recently, I discovered an amazing online nail art supply store (Viva La Nails UK) and purchased a bunch of glitters and other supplies – which one was a free sample pack of nail stickers and water decals for bloggers, youtubers etc to review : Viva La Nails Product Sample Pack (£12 VALUE)
What can I say?  These water decals went on smoothly, within seconds of placing the decal and applying the wet paper towel piece (my first time trying water decals) and looked great.  Thumbs up!

Final thoughts on Jade Holographica Energy.  It makes me sad 😦

That photo was after angling my hand/fingers in a ton of different poses, and taking photos of each – trying to see the holo.
It shouldn’t be that difficult to see the awesomeness of a holographic polish.  Oh well.

You call this a holo? #2 Review/Swatches of Jade Holografico “Hypnose”

YES, now this is what I call a holographic nail polish!  Looove it!

The brand is Jade “Hypnose” from the Holografico collection.  I’m not sure where else it is available, but I purchased mine from Ninja Polish.

First, I applied the Aqua Base for Holographic Nail Polishes by Nfu Oh (I think it is especially for their collection of holo’s, but it works with any :)).  Then, after letting that that dry completely, I applied two coats of the Jade “Hypnose” and one coat of Seche Vite top coat.

Not one problem or complaint about application.  The consistency was thin, but it didn’t leave any bald spots.  Without the Seche Vite top coat, it took longer than the usual polishes available these days – but since there are so many “quick dry” top coats available now, I guess it doesn’t really matter 🙂

I can’t think of anything else to say about it.  Everything about it was great, including the price… so, on to the photos!

The gigantic star is because I forgot to put my rings back on after my shower, and my ring finger looked naked !

And that’s all folks!  I think I will do a few more of these “You call that a holo?” and make it a mini series, because I have a TON of holographic polishes.  What do you think?
