Review: Glitter Gal's Not Another Red

If you've read my International Swaps post, you know that getting your hands on a good holo is like trying to find a diamond in the rough. -_- Here in the U.S., we are exposed to various brands, but none with a strong, true holo finish.

When I say good, I mean, gooood. I think a lot of you can agree that holos with strong, linear, and/or scattered effect, make a gorgeous statement and all the difference in the world. In my opinion, a true holo has to have that "WOW" factor and make you do a double take. It also has to look like magic at your finger tips! After all, the name is holographic :)

Last week, I received a bottle of Glitter Gal's Not Another Red polish to review. So, before I begin, a HUGE thank you to them again!

Here is a little background info on them:

Anna and Kerry have been close friends and worked together for many years. We always shared a passion of makeup and had the inspiration of creating a cosmetic business together that would be “trend setting” and different...

We use “true” holographic particles in our formulation.  This one ingredient is 30 times more expensive than any other nail polish ingredient.  Thus making our holographic nail polish the highest quality possible.  You will notice the smoothness to the finish of polish, and reflective effects are amazing.  They are also the “Big 3 Free.

 Overall:  Glitter Gal does not disappoint and passes with flying colors, literally ;)
Again, a true holo in my opinion, must have a linear and/or scattered effect that mesmerizes you every single time you look at your finger tips. When I'm in the sun, I cannot stop starring at how brilliant the holo effect truly is. I wore this to the Sacramento State Fair and people must of thought I was crazy walking around starring at my nails the entire time! ;)

Formulation was nice and smooth. With this particular polish, there was absolutely zero bald spots during application. I know how difficult it is to apply some holo polishes, but this was PERFECT, I tell ya ;) I used two coats, but you can definitely get away with 1 generous coat.

Wear time was outstanding! I normally post my reviews within 3-5 days of receiving them, but I really wanted to put this to the test. Being that top coats diminish/weaken the holo effect, the formulation must be perfect, long lasting, and have minimal chipping. I had an excellent wear time of 7 days with very minimal chipping.

Removal was a effortless! Some reds tend to slightly stain on my nails, but this polish came off almost immediately. 

Any cons?! I reallly wish the bottle was bigger!
Bigger bottles = more polish and since I loooove it so much, I need more! ;)

Again, a very huge thank you to Glitter Gal, you girls did an amazing job! :)

As always, hope this helps and happy shopping!
