I don’t know where the last week went, but somehow it completely got away from me. It all started with a power outage, then Christmas and last night NYE…eek! Anyway I’m back with a ton of gorgeous polishes and nail art ideas for 2014.
Holographic Polishes have been dominating the nail art scene for about six months, and everywhere I look, there seems to be new holos being launched. The benefit of holographic polish is that it gives a unique look and accent to your nails without having to do any complicated nail art. For beginner nail artists, holographic polishes are absolutely perfect. For the advanced nail artist, they’re also great because holographic nail polish is an easy go-to for stunning, stand out nails.
The formula of most holographic polishes are usually very easy to work with, as they are creamy in consistency and apply evenly in often 1-2 coats, unlike regular glitter polishes which take some getting used to and practice. Certainly, the ncLA holographic polishes are no exception. The three I tried were all extremely easy to use. All pictures below are 2 coats, with no top coat.
Lightyears Ahead is a shimmery grey/silver with micro holographic glitter. In the shade it is a muted grey that changes from light grey to a darker almost slate color. In the sunshine the glitter pops and is almost blinding it’s so sparkly.
Vacation on Mars
Vacation on Mars is a shimmery lilac purple with a silver sheen to it. This too changes from lighter lilac with soft grey undertones to a much brighter sparkly purple with colorful holographic glitter in direct sunlight.
I’m a true sucker for a blue polish, and ncLA’s Spaced Out holographic polish is absolutely no exception. This is a killer color for almost any occasion. The deep pigment of the intense blue is just stunning in shade and in direct sunlight. The intensity of the blue color in direct sunlight is to die for. The holographic glitter isn’t as blinding as the other two polishes in intensity, however for me it’s the perfect amount of sparkle for a polish.
If you like this look, I created a YouTube Tutorial as well.
Until next time,
