This is going to be a review and many swatch pics of my new China glaze Holographic Nail polish shade ‘Take a Trek’. Want to buy for yourself, check out in my blog post here the list of sites where its available.
About the Packaging :
Quantity is 14ml, decent size bottle with a good brush applicator. Luv the bottle shape easy to hold and apply.
About the Product and my experience:
I applied one coat and I was kind of disappointed as I didn’t see the holographic effect immediately, after it dried I got to see the rainbow colors appearing when I put some direct light over my nails. In the pics I have applied 3 coats. For good effect 2-3 coats is enough. Single coat won’t work sadly. The more thicker the polish, you can see the effect more clearly.
It says on the Bottle ‘Nail Lacquer with Hardeners’. It really hardens the nails and the drying time is really quick. It almost was dry within 5 mins of my applying it. I tried pressing down with my other fingers to check if the surface is having my finger marks, but it didn’t happen and was completely dry.
The color is really pretty, it doesn’t have ‘crazy-holograph-rainbow-colors-in-your-face’ effect, so is suitable for office/school/college. Once you show your nails against some direct light you can see the effect.
It costed me Rs.640. Since its branded and we don’t have any local holographic nail polish available in India, I am not complaining.
Well if you really looking for that vibrant multiple rainbow colors dancing from your nails in any angle and lighting, this is not for you. But if you want to try a holographic polish and since we don’t have many options available yet, it will serve the purpose. I love the color in general and the subtlety of the effect, so I would recommend it.
As a holograph polish, since the effect is little subtle will give it 3/5
