Everyday Can Be a Holo-day

Mentality Holo
1 coat over cobalt blue
 
Oh how I love holo! As we have discussed before, a gorgeous glittery or holo topcoat can save a bad mani! I ended up with some sheet marks when I painted my nails right before bed on a humid night and didn't wait very long before I went to sleep. I figured this was a great opportunity to give Mentality Holo a try.
 
Holo is a holographic top coat that dries to a glossy finish. It was designed to be layered over a base color, but I have read that it can be made opaque in about 4 coats. It dried really fast and totally saved my failed mani! LOVE it!

SinfulColors Fig and Rebel Rose

Today I've got two more shades from the SinfulColors 2015 Back To School Collection, A Class Act.
 
 SinfulColors Fig
2 coats
 
Fig is described as "glistening plum". This is just gorgeous, especially in the sun. Just the sort of shade I love, and it is a great Fall shade.
 
SinfulColors Rebel Rose
2 coats

 
Rebel Rose is described as "metallic magenta".  Looking at the bottle, I didn't realize just how pink it would pull. Although it seemed pretty sheer after one coat, the second coat evened it out and deepened the shade significantly. It's also really pretty in the sun.
 
 
 
PRICE/AVAILABILITY:
$1.99 each at Walgreens and other mass retailers for August & September 2015.

SinfulColors Hazed

SinfulColors Hazed
2 coats, no topcoat
demi-matte finish
 
Hazed is described as "subdued violet with a demi-matte finish". It's part of the 2015 Back To School collection, A Class Act.
 
This is just the type of color I love with my skintone. Although I needed 3 coats with RADient to get full coverage on my nail line, Hazed only needed 2. As with RADient, it dried fast and applied really well.
 
PRICE/AVAILABILITY:
$1.99 each at Walgreens and other mass retailers for August & September 2015.

SinfulColors RADient

SinfulColors RADient
3 coats, no topcoat
demi-matte finish
 
 
RADient is described as "vibrant raspberry with a demi-matte finish". It's part of the 2015 Back To School collection, A Class Act.
 
I am in love with this color- it's so pretty! I did need 3 coats to get better coverage on my nail line, but it applied so well and dried so fast that I really didn't mind.
 
PRICE/AVAILABILITY:
$1.99 each at Walgreens and other mass retailers for August & September 2015.

OPI DS Classic

OPI DS Classic
3 coats
 
 

OPI DS Classic is another one of the DS shades that needs 3 coats to be opaque. Other than Classic and Coronation, all the other DS shades I have are opaque in just 2. Classic is quite pretty and flatters my skintone much better than Coronation does. This is really pretty!

OPI DS Coronation

OPI DS Coronation
3 coats
 
DS Coronation is so pretty! Unlike other DS shades, it does need 3 coats for complete opaqueness. Worth it though- it is gorgeous in the sun!

OPI DS Tapestry

OPI DS Tapestry
2 coats
 
DS Tapestry is described as "dazzling deep rose" but it actually pulls a bit more orange on me. It's a pretty weak holo, but still pretty nonetheless.
