China Glaze DV8

I'm sure almost all of you reading this know how gorgeous and hard to get the China Glaze OMG collection is, so it should be no surprise to you that it took me ages to track down the bunch that I have. Unfortunately, they are a bit of a pain to wear; they chip quickly and top coat dulls the holo effect. For that reason, you have to "sandwich" these colors (base coat, color, topcoat, color) in order for them to last more than a day. I rarely ever wear them because of that, but I thought it was about time for me to swatch and post about them here.


This is DV8, a stunning linear teal holo. The formula is just okay; I had some dragging with the first coat, but it evened out with two. These holographic polishes are pretty hard to come by now, but you might get lucky and find someone who is willing to swap one!

  5. Several of the holos have the same application issues! :( I will say that I did not have those issues with the Ozotic holos. I did use base and udies but with one coat of the holo and no top coat, they lasted several days. I clean daily and had no chipping! :)
