Nails I Love
GLITTER GAL Green
So, another holo from my super haul from LLAROWE ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/Llarowe/126027514153022 and http://shop.llarowe.com/), and this one is a sneaky little beauty.
Firstly, GLITTER GAL Green has the MOST holo of any holo I have ever seen. It is OBSCENE! In a good way J Seriously, this bends and shimmers so much, and I have never seen so many colours hollering in the holo rainbow later. But I’ll come back to that.
So this is called green, but it’s only barely green. It’s a soft dab of super light green, snuggled up like a newborn in a cashmere blanket. This is a delicate green. There are base notes of greige in here too to soften it down, giving it an overall warm and fuzzy feel.
When the light’s not shining, this pretty much looks like pure liquid metal on the nail. Some indefinable colour and texture that just IS. I’ve stared at this a lot today – trust me – and the metallic effect hits me over and over, so even when the newborn isn’t showing off, she’s still showing some special powers J
And then there’s the holo. Wow, the holo. I said I’d never seen as much holo before in a polish, and it’s true. I am hoping you can see in the photos that this bends blue and purple and – wait for it – ORANGE. Yep, the colour most dominant in this holo spectrum is ornage. Whodda thunk ?
GLITTER GAL Green is an utterly mesmeric polish. It’s one of those that will tempt you even though “that’s not normally my colour”. I love it’s understatedness, and for a holo, it has a lot of subtle elegance. It reminds me of what would happen if Skull & Glossbones had some holo dropped in it.
The holo is strong with this one! All day I’ve been thinking that, in my fake Darth Vader voice lol. More than anything, this is holo at it’s most pure, almost as if all the colour was leeched out, and the only thing that remained was pure rainbow.
Treasure this babe, she’s special.
Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
