Good morning!! The other night I came off a not very fun day at work to Christmas in July!! First, the deerstalker cap C ordered me for fall arrived (IG photo in my little slideshow on the right, if you haven't already seen it) and I received awesome surprise nail mail from the lovely Melissa of Lacquer Reverie. I'd mentioned at one point that I hadn't even seen the Milani holos in my area so she went and tracked down the whole collection for my holo-loving heart ♥♥♥ Naturally, I had to try a couple of those babies on, like, immediately.
This is Hi-Res, a grape jelly holo.
There's something different about these holos and it's very cool. They don't appear to be done with spectraflair; it's more like a fine glitter and holo flake mix... there seem to be some irregularly shaped holo bits in these. The consistency is fairly thin, being unaltered by spectraflair. Application is elementary and these can be worn as easily as any non-holo polish. They're very obviously scattered, but with a very faint linear effect and instead of the rainbow where the line begins, it's kind of a glowy, fiery golden orange thing. These also look amazing under artificial, indirect light and shade. So many holos are merely acceptably pretty out of direct sunlight, but these are jelly-like and twinkly, making them ideal for those dark winter days when you've got a hankering for some holo. They're festive.
I'm so excited to have these beauties in my collection and I'm so thankful to Melissa for sending them to me. Good friends are more remarkable and brilliant than the most fiery rainbow ;)
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day!!
