Holographic or Glitter, what do I love more? Reviews and swatches Layla & Nfu Oh

Oh why, oh why…is it so hard to find a great holographic nail polish that applies beautifully?    Each one I’ve tried always gives me streaking problems, bald spots or some other application issue.  But they are worth it!!!!  I am reviewing my personal favorites.

 

Nfu Oh polishes, in general, apply smooth with no problems – but their holographic polishes are not so easy.

One layer, without going over more than once is ok – but if you attempt to go over to smooth it a bit or fix a blob (or whatever), the polish that is already on the nail seems to get picked up and dragged by the brush.
So, I’ve found painting the nails in 3 separate strokes (or two if you are skilled) – and then letting the polish dry completely before the next coat will help a lot with the Nfu Oh Holographic polishes.

Here are images of Nfu oh 65 and 61

 

The Layla Holographic polishes, while not as striking as the Nfu oh holo’s, are beautiful.

The application was nice and smooth, but the formula seems thin.  I used 3 coats on each nail, and still don’t feel I ever got to the colour I see in the bottle.  Still pretty though 🙂

This image is Layla 03 Retro Pink

And this last Layla polish is 08 Flash Black

 

 

And the grande finale !  I still don’t know which is better….Holographic or Glitter, but maybe one of these days I will combine them both into a wicked manicure!
