Swatch: Barry M - Holographic Lights (Molten Metal)


Colour: Silver
Finish: Holographic
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
[With Flash]
Encore Margot is a beautiful polish, however not as holographic as the Barry M.

GOSH - Holographic (original)
[With Flash]
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
[With Flash]
Hefesto is more of a top coat which you would apply over any base colour to turn it holographic.

Comments? This stains fingers and cuticles very easily on removal.

Review: Born Pretty Store - Holographic Pigment Powder (inc demo) #33256*


You get 1g of product which may not sound much but it is quite a lot for what you need. It comes in a little twist lid tub sealed with a cardboard stopper. Also comes with a sponge tipped applicator.


The idea is you paint your nails and use a UV / Gel topcoat, it has to be one which leaves a sticky residue once 'cured' under the UV / Gel light. Once the topcoat is cured you use the applicator to apply some product, dabbing at first and then rubbing the product in to the nail to create a stunning holographic finish on the nails. Finally setting this in place with another layer of topcoat.

I find the finish of this pigment is very intense, something which you can't quite recreate with a standard holographic nail polish. Using the powder in this way also means that you won't end up with brush makes which you can do with standard nail polish.

I have a 10% off discount code which you can use if you like:

Nail Polish Battle 2016: Holo Polishes

I much prefer holographic nail polish over a glitter or a metallic finish. I am surprised that I only seem to have acquired five this past year!

Cupcake Polish - Berry Looking Good // Freckles - I'll Need Wine // Freckles - French Martini // A England - Polovetsian Dances // A England - Natasha's Dance

It was hard to choose between these polishes, I ended up with Berry Looking Good and Polovetsian Dances because they were so different and the formulas are both fantastic.

The winner of this battle is Berry Looking Good, because it is such a strong holo and it looks amazing even when worn by itself which is something I don't usually do with any nail polish.

Just look at that gorgeous holo!
