Wiccan Nails Of The Day | Black Desire Holographic Nail Polish Review

black holographic manicure close up picture

I love the way black nail polish looks on long, witch-like nails. It gives your nail a super-edgy and dramatic appeal and makes you feel more confident and sexy. Plus, black nail polish is one of the most versatile colors for every occasion and skin complexion. I always feel more confident while wearing black manicure, but black holographic nail polish gives me even stronger boost of self-confidence. Who said you can't wear witchy manicure on a daily basis? Today I'm giving myself a witch-worthy nail makeover and trying out new holographic nail polish by Born Pretty.

I love to manicure my own nails and never go to the nail salon. DIY manicure is an excellent method of stress relief, it helps me to relax and gives me some quality time with myself. I know it sounds a little bit too egoistic, but I highly suggest you to do your manicure at home. Even though, my current nail situation isn't how I want it to be (I'm trying to regrow my nails after an incident)  I still love my short nail and try to treat them with a new manicure each week. This week I'm wearing enchanting duochrome nail polish called 'Years'* by Born Pretty nail store.

'Years' holographic nail polish is a part of 'Flower in Sunshine' series and it has the most beautiful duochrome shade. I would describe it as a green on purple color, full of small holographic particles. When you look at your nails from the different angles and lightening, the color changes from seaweed green to a dark heather, reveling a soft holographic effect. I'm really amazing with the shade, it is perfect for the cold time of a year. 

The consistency of the nail polish isn't too thick or runny, it is perfect for application. It dries out very fast, even when applied in two coats, and has a beautiful glossy finish. However, struggled to apply a second coat. I wanted to reach the full opacity and pigmentation with a second thin coat, but the second coat of this duochrome nail polish kept smudging the first coat. To prevent this, I suggest you to apply the desirable base coat of color and only one coat of the 'Years' holographic nail polish. Of course, the final color won't be as sultry as it could've been, but this solves the issue.

On the swatches I'm wearing a base coat - coffee brown, cool-toned nail polish and a double coat of 'Years' holographic nail polish. As a top coat I used a No Smudge Clear Top also by Born Pretty. This time it worked incredibly great! It sealed my holographic manicure and made it last more than a week with minor tip chipping. The longevity exam was successfully completed!

So, overall, I really liked the beautiful duochrome shine and subtle holographic effect of this nail polish. Despite of its enchanting color I can't say I'm a huge fan of this duochrome nail polish. It isn't easy to build up the opacity of the manicure: each new coat, even the thinnest one, smudges the previous one. Of course this issue is not huge and I know how to solve it, but, maybe with a stamping plate this nail polish will work better. Autumn is always a time for a new experiments, isn't it?

Born Pretty Store Holo Series 'Papakōlea Breeze' | Review & Demo

It is hard to find a nail polish junkie, who doesn't like holographic nail polishes. This holosexual obsessions started to grow stronger together with the popularity of Simply Nailogical Youtube channel. I was never a fan of holographic nail polishes, but when I saw this beautiful spicy nail polish called 'Papakōlea Breeze'*at Born Pretty Store, I fell in love and decided to give it a try.

I want to start off with a little explanation, because I didn't know what Papakōlea means. Papakōlea is a very famous and unique green sand beach located on island of Hawaii. The sand there looks like a fine mixture between little emerald crumbs and spicy black pepper. So, Papakōlea Breeze is a gentle afternoon wind from a green sand beach. Sounds wonderful, isn't it? 

Holo Series come in a regular Born Pretty nail polish bottle with a medium-sized brush-applicator. Application of the nail polish wasn't the best, it goes on smoothly on the nail plate, but once you try to build-up the color, bush moves the first coat. I recommend you to apply a thin layer of Papakōlea Breeze and let it completely dry, before the second application. Fortunately, it dries very quickly! For an extra opaque coverage I like to apply two thin coats of holo nail polish and finish my manicure with a layer of top coat. 

To my surprise, after I covered Papakōlea Breeze with a transparent top coat, all holographic rainbows disappeared. Usually, transparent top coat is used to reveal the shiny power of rainbows, but not in this case. I honestly don't know where was the problem: in my favorite top coat Big Universo Brilho Cristal (review) or in this incredibly beautiful holographic nail polish. If you know the answer, please let me know in the comments, because I really want to understand where was the issue. But the saddest part is the durability of this nail polish. It started to chip on the second day of wearing, I wonder how long it lasts without a top coat.

Overall, I was a little bit disappointing with the formula of Holo Series nail polish by Born Pretty. The color and that beautiful rainbow shine are undoubtedly magnificent. But the overall application and durability of this nail polish isn't the best. Born Pretty has better nail polish collections, like the Pumpkin Series (review), which are very durable and last on my nails more than a week. I think, Born Pretty needs to develop a special top coat and retail it together with Holo Series nail polishes, to make them last longer and shine brighter.
