Jade Holographics Mystic Gold

Today I have what might possibly be the most heinously unflattering color ever on my nails but it is hardly noticeable because it is also a supremely intense linear holo.  This is Jade Mystic Gold.

 I've been obsessed with Mystic Gold ever since Simona at Light Your Nails showed it off at about this time last year.  Mystic Gold is a bright yellow gold jelly base that somehow does nothing but intensify an already insanely strong and full spectrum rainbow.
Jades are my favorite holos because of their amazing formulas and decidedly un-divalike behavior.  They apply like normal polishes, with none of the tugging, patching, or balding you're used to seeing with so many holos.  I suspect the jelly base is to credit for this, but it might just be that Brazil, Jade's country of origin, knows how to do a holo properly.  I used my regular basecoat, three layers of polish, and one layer of topcoat.  So easy.

Just... insane.  I've got nothing else, lol.  This is one of the most deliciously, wickedly brilliant holos I've ever seen.
I purchased Mystic Gold through Llarowe but these are available in a number of different places, including Ninja Polish and Color4Nails.  All retail for $6.50 to $7.

Thanks for reading! ☼☼☼

    1. It's quite atrocious in the shade, lol, something like Hampstead Gardens meets Trendsetter plus some shimmer and I can safely say that if the promise of highly awesome holo wasn't imminent, I would've passed. I just think the bright gold makes it so brilliant :) Anyhoo, thank you :) I took waaaaay too many photos of this one, lol.

  2. This color doesn't look awful on you! :) And even if it did (which it doesn't), who would ever notice what with all that blinding gorgeousness anyway?? It reminds me of Christmas for some reason...

    1. You're so sweet :) I didn't show a photo in the shade for a reason, lol. But yes... The whole point is that the holo is so AWESOME that the highly unflattering color is a mere afterthought... And a nearly forgotten one, at that... What were we talking about again?

  4. You already know I love it! And I don't think it can look bad on anyone, it's so bold and gorgeous and rainbow-y. You got the idea, right? It just can't look bad, that's it!

    1. Get it. Seriously. It's death by holo and so fiery that it'll look amazing on whomever chooses to wear it. Lol. It is impossible for this holo to look terrible. Impossible, I tell you. :)

  8. I love the Jade holos! I'm not a huge fan of yellow/golds either, but that intense holo really makes up for it. Mystic Gold looks like liquid metal on your nails. :D

    1. Yess!! Another Jade fan :) I love golds but this one has a brownish quality that is really not my fave, lol. But like I said... the holo makes up for any and all flaws. :)

  9. Hi sis - stunning!!! I love Mystic Gold and am the protective owner of a precious bottle!!! I am so with you, the Jade holos are a dream from every aspect. And they never get that dull and flat look so many others have - this must be the jelly base - awesome pictures and, despite you saying it is not ideal next to your skin - beautiful on you <3

    1. They really are a dream from every aspect, yes, awesome wording! This particular color has nice weartime, too, so rare amongst holos. I've heard the Color Clubs are just as good and another set of holos is certainly the next thing I need to be getting myself wrapped up in, lol... have you tried them?

    1. You're so sweet, Pearl :) The funny thing is, I'd almost rather look at photos than my actual nails... bigger area space on which to view the rainbow, lol :D

    1. A holo afficionado such as yourself certainly needs to have the Jades in her collection :) I bet you'd do amazing things with this one!

  15. I giggled a bit when I read your first sentence, but I agree. The holo makes this amazing!! Without it, it would be no good haha. :)

  17. This would be such an ugly color without the blinding, holo-y awesomeness! I'm not worried though, your nails would look great in any color! :)
