First I want to mention the bottle these polishes come in. They are square-bottomed, rectangular 13 ml glass bottles with a shorter brush stem and a wider flat brush, but not as wide as OPI's for example. I appreciate this as I feel this makes polish easier to apply for me than a thin, round brush. The smaller bottle made wrapping my chubby fingers around it for photos a little challenging, but I don't really mind haha. I love the sleek holographic lettering she's using on the front of the bottles for a logo as well, though it did freak my camera out with color balance a few times.
Candy Apple is a magenta red linear holographic. It had a great, nicely thin but opaque formula. I used two coats here. These all dry down slightly dull so I think a top coat is good to really bring out the sparkle.
S'more Holo is a greige taupe linear holographic. This is a little thicker than the darker colors in the collection, but it is still easy to apply. It's not as strong of a holo as some of the others but you get a nice rainbow in the sun. Two coats.
Concord is a grape purple linear holographic. Same formula as Candy Apple, very fiery holo pay off. I feel like the holo particles in this are a little larger maybe as it's just so super blingy. Two coats on this one as well.
Pumpkin Everything is a muted pumpkin spice orange linear holographic. Same formula as S'more, a little thicker and not quite as strong of a holo, but smooth and opaque in two coats. This is a unique shade to have in a holo formula, I've never seen one like this before and I love it! I'm a total pumpkin-a-holic and this fits right into my Fall scene!
Cypress is a pine green linear holographic. Great formula and very opaque. I used two coats here. I am head over heels with this color, I put it back on after I finished swatching these!
Cricket is a black linear holographic. This is super creamy and opaque. It's very dark which means the holo isn't as super strong as some other black holos I have, but I like that it retains it's blackness and doesn't turn into a charcoal or grey. Two coats but it's basically opaque in one.
September Sky is a medium blue linear holographic. This is also very nice and easy to apply. Opaque in two coats. I had no staining with this at all, which is good because I flooded my cuticle pretty bad on one nail because I wasn't paying attention haha.
Corn Maize is a bright mustard yellow linear holographic. This one has the thinner consistency of the darker colors, but it's also a little jelly-ish. Even so, it was still opaque in two coats for me. I like this a lot as we don't usually see this shade in a holographic formula.
Holo All The Things! is their silver holographic top coat. I put one thin coat over a black crème and I got this stunning result. This is a super holo, very rainbowy and it retains a linear structure really well which makes it stand out against other holo top coats on the market. I can see getting a lot of use out of this!
The Harvest Festival shades are available for pre-order now at www.ninezerolacquer.com until September 12 at 11:59 pm EST (US) for $9.50 each or $70 for the set of eight. The holographic top coat is $8. She also has a fast drying top coat, matte top coat, sticky base coat, and a ridge filling base coat available for $6 individually or $10 for a duo.
I'm pretty impressed with the inaugural Nine Zero Lacquer collection! It's always super exciting when a nail polish blogger/vlogger/reviewer/swatcher creates their own colors/formulas because they have so much knowledge about what is good and what people like. I can't wait to see what she comes out with next! What do you think of these fun Fall holos?
