GOSH Holographic

Recently, I've had a handful of new followers, and a shit-ton (technical term) of new visitors. I went from having like, 20 views a day, to 300+ a day this past week. And I'm one follower away from reaching 50! So, hello new readers & followers! Welcome. Sit down, relax, stay awhile.

On to the polish! Right after the first swap with Nicole, she told me she found Holographic by GOSH. So, I've been "patiently" waiting since then to wear it. And finally that day has come! Lots of photos coming up.

I know we've all since this a billion times, but really, can you ever tire of seeing this gorgeous creation? I'd heard horror stories about the application process, but honestly I didn't find it difficult. Nicole suggested I skip the base and top coat, so I listened. I used two coats for full coverage. I did experience a little bit of the pulling effect, but it was pretty easy to fix. It definitely does chip super fast though. I only had it on for a few hours when I started noticing scratches and chips. I've had it on for about 24 hours now, and it's chipped pretty severely. Next time, I might play around with base and top coat, to see if I can get it to last a little longer. I've heard of people applying base coat, and then buffing their nails, so I might just try that. Have you tried anything that works to get it to last longer?

Man, I just cannot stop staring at my nails!

Hope you had a good Monday!


  1. I am sooo jealous :( I still dream of walking into the shop that sells it here and finding a dusty bottle on the shelf...
    Apparently top coat can dull the holo effect but I've heardof people making a tc sandwich - apply the top coat and then another coat of polish so you have the full holo effect but the tc gives it a bit of lasting power. Hope that helps!

  2. ahhhhh this is lush on you! gorgeous! I have not seen another bottle of it since. It is so annoying that it chips so fast. Oooh that is a good idea from NailNewbie, I might try that too. x
