Born Pretty Holo Effect #11. You gotta love Born Pretty Store, they name their polishes with numbers. How boring and uninventive. They can do better than that!!
This is the dark purple holo polish from the line they released last year. Holo polishes are tricky. These pics, for example, are all taken WITH FLASH. Without flash or sunlight these polishes don't have half the holo wow factor these photos represent!
The formula on this polish was great. Two smooth coats and top was all I needed to achieve this holo goodness.
I guess the difference between a good holo and a not so good holo is whether or not you need direct sunlight to see the sparkles. If you've ever worn ANY of the Color Club Holo Hues you know what I'm talking about. This polish doesn't even come close to comparing to those polishes.
I realized I have a possible dupe for this polish. Which kinda pisses me off because I don't usually like to have dupes in my collections. I rather buy something new than spend money on something that I have already. But that's just me. I do make an exception with cobalt blues for some reason. I just can't have enough of them!!! Anyway, look for a comparison post coming soon!!
Overall, I wouldn't recommend these polishes. They are WAY overpriced, which is unusual for Born Pretty Store. They usually have amazing prices. These polishes come in 6ml bottles for $12.88. I think when I bought it they were on sale for a bit cheaper. But still…the bottle is tini-tiny!!! I don't think it's worth it for the fact that the holo really doesn't stand out unless it's in bright light.
I know these polishes got great reviews from bloggers when they came out, which is why I bought this one. I'd love to know if you have any of the other colors and what you think of them. Please comment and give me your honest opinions.
