Glitter Gal - Hot Chilli & Transfusion

Today I have two new Glitter Gal holographic lacquers to show you. They are both limited editions and there were only a few batches made. I have to admit, I might be cooling off on the holo trend. At first they were quite the novelty, but now they're so popular they seem almost commonplace to me (except for my beloved orange holo I posted the other day). Every indie seller makes them these days, but I still give Glitter Gal props for being one of the first brands to do them really well and bring them more into the mainstream.

First is Hot Chilli, a warm autumnal red holo. This one dried very matte on me, almost weirdly so, so I put topcoat on over it, which technically you shouldn't do with holos. That did dull the holo effect, but I think it looked nicer despite that. This is two coats plus topcoat.

This one is called Transfusion, which would suggest a blood red polish, but this is more purple to me. The same weird matte thing happened as it dried, so again I put topcoat over it. This time it definitely affected the holo finish more than I liked. If I wear these again, I will wear them without a topcoat. I do like the color a lot though, very sexy. This is two coats with topcoat.

I can't find these guys in stock online anymore but maybe they will reappear sometime in the future. You can purchase Glitter Gal nail polishes from their website, Llarowe, Harlow & Co, or Ninja Polish. Do you still love holographic polish or are you more ambivalent towards it these days like me?

Product samples were provided for consideration.
