China Glaze Hologlam - Strap on your Moonboots

Hello dear readers!

Today I want to show you swatches of China Glaze  - Strap on your Moonboots.

This nail polish is part of the Hologlam collection. There are 12 different holographic nail polishes but this one is one of my favorite colors.

Strap on your Moonboots is a stunning navy blue holographic nail polish. Formula-wise, it is pigmented enough with 2 coats. As for the application, I had a few problems because the nail polish was goopy in consistency...the nail polish cap was loose when it arrived and I think that's the reason and not a problem the formula. 

The holographic finish is different from CG previous holographic collections, it is linear and the particles are very fine...I also like that it has a metallic sheen to it that I've never seen on other holographic collections.

Do you own a nail polish form China Glaze Hologlam Collection? 
If not, what do you think of this color?

Ninja Polish - He Went to Jarred - 12K White Gold Top Coat

Hello dear readers!

I'm still catching up (or at least trying) with nail swatches that are overdue on my blog...

Last month, I showed you swatches of Ninja Polish - The Midas Touch 24K Gold Flake Top Coat (Click here to read) and today, I have swatches of He Went to Jarred which is the silver version made of 12K White Gold flakes.

I applied 2 coats of He Went to Jarred over Man Glaze - Matte is Murder.
 Just  as its gold counterpart, this silver flake was easy to apply.

One thing I forgot to say about this flake top coat... contrary to glitter nail polishes, gold or silver flake top coats are very easy to remove with regular acetone.

Which flake top coat do you like the best, gold or silver?

Man Glaze - Matte is Murder - With shiny topcoat

Hello dear readers!

On my previous post about Man Glaze - Matte is Murder, I showed you swatches with this nail polish in its natural matte beauty. This time, I want to show you swatches of this badass nail polish with topcoat.

As if Matte is Murder wasn't cool enough by itself, I went ahead and added topcoat just to add a bit more to the awesomeness of this nail polish...
I love the purple and green shimmer effect when shiny!

Which finish do you like better? Matte or shiny?

Man Glaze - Matte is Murder - Review & Swatches

Hello dear readers!

Here is another belated post. Some of you may notice that on some of my recent posts my nails look long, a bit short on the next post and back to long on the other... I'm mixing some of my recent pictures with a few older ones that I had on queue... This one is  from the beginning of March.

It is the first time for me to try Man Glaze nail polish, I've read and seen awesome reviews on this brand and I knew I needed to try them myself.

 Matte is Murder is an awesome matte black nail polish with a hint of shimmer.

 The application was very easy, it is fairly opaque in one generous coat, but two coats are better. It can be applied without any problems with streaking or bald spots, just perfect. The drying time is relatively fast considering you don't apply topcoat to keep the matte finish.

Extra pic...
I'm usually not a fan of the matte finish, but Man Glaze nail polishes are just too good to pass up, these nail polishes are not plain at all!

I will show you swatches with shiny topcoat on my next post  ;)

 *This nail polish was purchased by me. The opinion expressed of this product is solely my own.
Do you like matte finish nail polishes?
