Color Club – Kismet

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Yay, it’s Holo Friday! I haven’t even tried all the Halo Hues from 2012 before I’m all over the new ones. Today I have the light (lime?) green Kismet from Color Club’s Halo Hues collection from this year, which I’m sure you’ve all seen already. I had no light for these photos either, so these are taken with flash. I applied three coats and there where no problems at all with the application.




It’s a beautiful shade that I think will be fun for Spring and Summer.

Have you bought any of the new Halo Hues polishes? I will soon have all of them, I just couldn’t resist them!

Milani – Hi-Res

Friday, February 8th, 2013

It’s time for Holo Friday again! I don’t remember if I’ve worn Hi-Res before, so I figured I could show it today. It’s a light purple with a scattered holographic effect. These Milani polishes are pretty sheer so I applied four thin coats. What I like about Milani’s 3D polishes is that they work well both on their own and for for layering.

The sun was disappearing when I took the photos so the holographic goodness isn’t as prominent as it could have been.



I wish you all a wonderful weekend, I’m going to eat my Friday tacos now and have some Fredagsmys! (best translated as Friday cosiness) =)

Color Club – Cherubic

Friday, January 25th, 2013

Finally I have a new manicure to show you, and as you can tell my nails are quite shorter now. I think it’s nice for a change, I haven’t had this short nails for a couple of years so I’ve forgotten what it was like =) This Holo Friday I have Color Club Cherubic to show you from the Halo Hues collection, it’s a neutral beige with a superb holographic effect. This is two coats, with longer nails I probably would have done three as usual.



Please excuse the the stuff on my ring finger nail, I had just violated them with my nail file…


I love this polish, it’s perfect when you don’t really know what color to wear, but want some holographic goodness.

China Glaze – IDK

Friday, January 18th, 2013

These photos have been lying around since last year, probably since I didn’t think they’re that good (evil dry hands!). But they’ll have to do now, I’ve missed Skimmerskuggans‘s Holo Fridays’ a lot lately and I want to show something today. This is the light purple IDK from China Glaze’s OMG-collection. This is one of my faves from that collection, being the purple lover that I am. This is probably three or four coats.



I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of this collection, it’s fantastic!

I know I’ve been quiet on the blogs lately, I hope to get some time to catch up this weekend.

Color Club – Blue Heaven

Friday, December 28th, 2012

I almost forgot it was Friday today, but thankfully I still have some unpublished photos of holographic goodness. Today I’ll be showing you Color Club Blue Heaven for Holo Friday. It’s a very pale and light blue, so if you see it on its own you might think it’s just a silver. This is three thin coats and the formula is terrific.


I’m in love with these rainbows!


I can’t believe it’s just three days left of this year! I still have loads of unedited photos from the past year, so something tells me you will get to see some old stuff well into next year. Better late than never I guess? =)

Glitter Gal – Not Another Red

Friday, December 21st, 2012

So, Friday before Christmas, I figured I would show you the only red holographic polish I have to date. Glitter Gal Not Another Red is a pinky red polish from their 3D Holographic range. It’s my only Glitter Gal polish so far and after trying this I’m definitely getting more! This is two coats and it was really easy to apply. The holographic effect isn’t super strong, but you get nice scattered rainbows in the sun.

The last photo is taken indoors in sunlight, the color looks a little deeper there.

I can’t believe that it’s Christmas in just a few days, I haven’t really had time to stop and think lately. But I do know that I look forward to having some time off!


Depend – 2036 Ocean Green

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Today I only have some photos shot with flash to show you for Holo Friday, but I hope they will do anyway. This is one of Depend’s holographic polishes, number 2036 with the name Ocean Green, though I think it looks more aqua/blue. I know I’m quite late to the party with trying these out, but I just haven’t got around to it until now. It was pretty sheer so I had to use four coats, next time I’ll definitely be using it for layering.

I love the color of this polish, and the holo effect is really nice:

I have been a bad blogger lately, work is still taking up a lot of time an energy for me so the photos I’ve taken are just stacking up. I hope I’ll get around to produce some more posts soon!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Holo Friday 1 Year Celebration!

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

It has now been one year since Skimmerskuggan started up the Holo Friday tradition! And in celebration of that, here’s a collection of all the Holo Friday posts that I’ve put up over the last year. I decided to show a thumbnail from each entry, they are all linked to the original blog posts. I’ve started with the oldest ones first:

So unless I’ve missed something I’ve been posting 21 Holo Friday posts (there were two polishes in one post). Let’s see if I can do better for next year!

So which ones are you favorites? Being fresh in mind, the three latest are probably my faves at the moment, although LOL and QT are classics that I will never get tired of.
