Hello lovelies,

I've got here another two China Glaze Hologlam polishes. There's not much sun lately so I can't really swatch holographs...but be assured many more are coming ;) I got these at a Professional Beauty exhibition in London where they've had the whole collection. I didn't buy them all because the price was much steeper than for the regular polishes so these are some of my picks...

Not In This Galaxy - peachy bronze in the sun, peachy pink in the shade. It's really interesting how the colour is so different under artificial light and in the sun (leaving out the holo effect). The main thing to know about this polish, and all the Hologlams for that matter, that they dry VERY fast. That causes patching if you go over the same place twice with brush. It makes application very tricky. When I was applying NITG the polish was streaky but once it dried there were no streaks visible. As you can see, the holographic effect is not very strong even in direct sunlight.

When Stars Collide - aubergine purple holographic shade. Oh..the purple colour is so pretty, one of my two favourites! The holographic effect is not that strong but it is more contrasting with the dark colour so it looks like it's stronger than in Not In This Galaxy. The formula is the same as the previous polish - dries too fast, can and probably will cause patching.

So which one do you like the most? I really like When Stars Collide but I would prefer it to have stronger holo effect and better formula. I have previously reviewed CHG Galactic Gray HERE.

You can purchase the Hologlam collection at your usual stores or online, they are already available.

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all well! Don't forget to enter my two giveaways but please read the rules, the Jacava Giveaway is for UK participants only. Giveaway links are in the right sidebar --->

Today I've got here an indie brand Dandy Nails and their glitter bomb called Fakes & Fibbers. I've worn this combo around Christmas time and it looked nice and festive, great glitter topper.

Fakes & Fibbers - black and gold glitter in a clear base. I like that the mixture includes different sizes of the glitters as it makes it interesting. It's ideal for layering but the glitter is dense so it would be possible to wear it by itself as well. I have applied one coat over OPI Alpine Snow. It applied very well and dried fast but gritty so topcoat is necessary if you want smooth finish. Removal is difficult as with any other glitter.

I've had a look at the Dandy Nails Etsy store but couldn't find this particular glitter, maybe it's just not in stock. Full size Dandy Nails polishes cost $8 and minis $4.50
