Holo Taco said that every day is a holoday, and I’ve really taken that to heart because I finally have my swatches of their holiday collection for you in May. Spring is such a great time to look at winter collections, isn’t it? Most bloggers like to be ahead a season, I prefer to be behind one. These polishes are all still available and they aren’t necessarily wintery shades so I have little heartburn about dropping this on y’all. These are the first polishes from Holo Taco that are neither cremes nor toppers. This is their holo glitter formula, which are several different sizes, and in some cases colors, of holographic glitter in a jelly base.
The shades all perform like you would expect: the lighter the jelly base, the more coats you need for full coverage. You either build opacity by building up the base or the glitters. Two of the polishes I have today had more opaque bases and reached opacity that way while the other two had lighter bases so the glitter coverage was what really needed to be built up. For a glitter polish, I would say that across the board these were really easy to apply, I actually ended up mostly painting them on like regular polish which is not something you can do with a lot of glitter bombs. I think Cristine knows that not everyone who gets her polish is going to be a power user of nail polish, so it makes sense that these were formulated to have as easy application as possible for someone who might just be used to a drugstore creme. That being said, if you use this polish and expect it to apply like a creme, you will be disappointed. Say it with me kids, different formulas require different application techniques!
