Essence: Hello Holo

Hi everyone!

First, please excuse this quick post as I have tons of errands to run today.

Before I head out, I wanted to show you my NOTD, which is Hello Holo from Essence. Here are a few photos.

Base: Wet n Wild Metallica
+
3 Coats Hello Holo 
(I used a base since I had a feeling HH would require more than 4-5 coats for opacity alone.)




If you look closely, IMO, HH gives the illusion of a linear holo finish. 



Gahhh, these photos do not do this polish ANY justice! -_- Trust me, it's even more gorgeous in person. 

Even after a silver base and 3 coats, it still wasn't opaque as I would have wanted it to be. Perhaps 2-3 additional coats would have done the trick, but since you all know I highly dislike polishes that take more than 3 cats and I was running out the door, this final look was something I had to settle for. Nonetheless, it's a real gem and it'll make you do a double take! ;)

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

Do you own Essence Hello Holo?! Have anything similar? I have a bottle of WnW Kaleidoscope and will have a comparison in the near future. What are your thoughts?! I'd love to know down below!

  1. I got this polish too. Love it! But it really needs a base underneath. Also, I had the same problems taking pictures of it :D
