China Glaze DV8

Yes, I own this! This was the first polish that I went crazy for and tracked all over eBay to find. I'm pretty sure most of you are already familiar with DV8, but for those of you who are not, it was released in the China Glaze OMG collection and has since been almost impossible to find (unless you want to pay $20 for one bottle). DV8 is a turquoise holographic polish. Here it is in full sunlight:

Isn't it beautiful? Unfortunately, the formula is wretched. The first coat drags terribly and pulls chunks of polish away from the cuticles. The second coat evens things up a bit, but can still be troublesome if you don't apply carefully. However, with any other polish this beautiful, the end result justifies the application troubles. Now, even though I generally despise flash photos, I leave you with one because I feel that it shows off the holo in DV8 the best:
