Holographic Nail Polish Topcoat Comparison

   Hi everyone!  I have a sparkly post for today.  A comparison of Glitter Gal #707 Silver 3D Holo (or "Turbulence", as it is now known), Digital Nails Spectraflair Holographic Topcoat, and Hits Hefesto.  I have several pictures and will also compare the polishes in these aspects:
  • Price/value
  • Strength
  • Color clarity
  • Brush & Bottle
  • Formula
   Here we go!


   My ring finger is modelling Glitter Gal Turbulence, middle finger wears Digital Nails Spectraflair Holographic Topcoat, and index is sitting pretty in Hits Hefesto.  Each polish is shown at one coat.  All have China Glaze Stone Cold as the black polish beneath, and my photos have been taken in sunlight.

Holographic Magnetic Nails!

  This is a layering experiment I tried with magnetics and linear holographic polishes.  Started out with black and silver nails with diagonal magnet designs and put a coat of Glitter Gal silver polish  Turbulence over them!  Check out all the pictures to see the results!

My First Overall Beauty Haul!

   Since I'm sickly I've pulled out old pictures for my standby easy-to-throw-together posts: past hauls.  These are really late in the sharing, too.  I got these a month ago!  Sorry for the extreme delay...  I placed an order through Overall Beauty last month when she had some clearance sales going on in her Glitter Gal nail polish section.  These are the colors I came away with:


   Glitter Gal polishes in Blush, Frappe, and Not Another Red.  I already wore Not Another Red - you can see it on my nails here.  Also love the little ribbon bow!  I'm going to use it on the end of a braid sometime.  =)

   Ordering through Overall Beauty was great because the owner, Kim, kept in contact with me the whole time through both E-mail and Twitter!  It was friendly and added a personal touch.  Another personal touch was the included sample of her eyeshadow.  The color is called Lavender With a Twist.


   It comes sealed with plastic.  I've used this a couple times and I love it - swatches to come!  You can also purchase Kim's mineral eyeshadows from her etsy store, and here is a direct link to this lovely color.


   I'm happy with how my order was handled and Kim's customer service.  I got my items quickly, and while I don't have pictures I can tell you that everything arrived in cute green bubble wrap and a plastic bag decorated in stars!  It made my day.  =)  I recommend checking out Overall Beauty for some neat polishes and plenty of other beauty items, such as the namesake mineral make-up line.

Glitter Gal - Not Another Red

   I finally have some Glitter Gal goodness in my collection!  I've actually had a few for awhile now, but with the lack of sun I haven't been reaching for my holos very often.  I decided to try Not Another Red by Glitter Gal earlier this week.  Here it is at just one coat.  I must apologize because my nails were extremely shaky when I painted my nails and also while I was taking pictures.  Low blood sugar & pressure issues, I believe.  =(


   Lookit how pretty it is anyway, though!  This is one of their discontinued colors, and I'm so glad I grabbed it.  It is a very saturated pink-red.  Under yellow lighting it had a coral tone to it.  The holographic effect was amazing under intense light, but it was visible under regular lights, too.  The orange and purple stood out most then.  And under low light conditions it became a lovely red creme polish with fine silver shimmer showing in it.  I loved wearing this!
