Formulation wise OPI Designer Series are said to be the best while most others don’t last longer than a day or two.

Maybelline is also coming up with its line called Color Show following the holographic trend; however, the polishes seems to give more of a shimmery look than holographic.

Points to remember while applying the holographic nail polishes –

  • Make sure to shake the polishes well and allow a few minutes to settle before you apply. This can help to distribute the holographic pigment better and better the results!
  • Avoid using topcoats on these nail polishes as they can make them look dull. Using a basecoat will help apply the polish better. The best way to use a holographic nail polish is to apply very thin coats of the it & layer it up.

Currently these nail polishes are being launched in a very few countries such as the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Hope we see themsoon in other countries as well!!
