Opacity: Three Coats
Brush Type: Flat, Wide, Rounded Cuticle
How Much? 10ml
I have a few holographic polishes in my collection and compared Holographic Lights to those;
A England - Encore Margot
Encore Margot is a beautiful polish, however not as holographic as the Barry M.
GOSH - Holographic (original)
GOSH Holographic is stunning, even in standard lighting. This is the elusive original swatched, I did do a comparison post to the newer formula but I think even that one has been discontinued.
HITS - Hefesto
Hefesto is more of a top coat which you would apply over any base colour to turn it holographic.

Barry M - Cotton // Barry M - Holographic Lights // Avon - Lilac Love // Nails Inc - Star Street // Barry M - Dragon Fruit
Spring actually began a few weeks ago so I am a little late in doing this post, but after missing last year I thought it would still be good to share my picks for 2017. You can see my picks from 2013 here, 2014 here and 2015 here. Of course you don't need these specific brands and colours but something along these lines are very Spring appropriate, if that is what you are looking for.
Barry M - Cotton
Barry M - Holographic Lights
Avon - Lilac Love
Nails Inc - Star Street
Barry M - Dragon Fruit

I haven't done a then and now throwback nails for a while. It is interesting to look back at how much I have learned and improved upon over the past seven years of nail blogging.
Back in 2011 I did these nautical themed nails, looking at these I am pretty sure I freehanded the stripes as well as the anchors. Also these are that old I can't find the blog post I shared them in because I didn't tag things in a coherent way then!
Base Polish: Models Own - True Blue
Today I used striping tape to create a more straight line, although the top coat dragging is very frustrating! I also stamped both the the anchors rather than freehanding them.
Base Polish: Yes Love - L011
White Polish: Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
Stamping Polish: MoYou - Special Nail Polish - White
Stamping Plates: Bundle Monster BM08, BM407
