Glitter Gal- 3D Holo Green

Hello! I'm Anna and excited to start sharing my nail polish obsession with you. I'm relatively new to the game but the small stash I had early last year (pretty much just nudes, a red and a purple) has grown to close to 100 different colors!
3 coats and artificial bathroom light

A couple weeks ago, my aunt was doing a little shopping on Llarowe and offered to get something for me. I had been eyeing these Glitter Gal 3D Holos for awhile and couldn't pass it up. They call this one Green and I suppose it has a sea foam tint to it but under most lights it shows as a very silver holographic. The bottle is tiny (a little over half the size of a regular bottle) and a bit pricey ($14) but worth every penny. The formula is perfect and applied very smoothly. I didn't get any pulling or even any bald spots. I didn't want to trying layering this over any other colors just yet and it took 3 coats to reach almost full opacity. It looks like you can see a bit of my nail line but only really on the pointer. I guess I need better lighting in my apartment so I can apply even coats to each nail!

I usually change my polish every other day but I wanted to see how this weathered. I tend to see a lot of tip wear from typing so much at work but by the end of day 5 there was only the tiniest bit of wear on my right pointer and ring nails. Not a chip in sight! I also got a ton of compliments on the color.

I'm not a girl who wears much jewelry, but I can't get enough of a sparkly nail. I see more Glitter Gal 3D Holos in my future.

  2. I would love to change my polish everyday, but it takes to long for the polish to set. Do you have any tips or tricks?

    1. Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat is your new best friend. Put it on when your polish is still tacky and it dries it to the touch within minutes. I usually brush some cuticle oil over it at this point just to help any possible dings just slide off. No more sheet prints on your nails in the morning! It can be a little pricey but you can usually find it for cheaper online.

      Sally Hansen's Fast Dry Top Coat (in the red bottle) gives similar results, but Seche Vite is MUCH shinier.
