NOTD: Technic Holo

Having really liked Technic nail polishes in the past, I couldn't resist when I spotted this beauty in Bodycare for just £1.49; a limited-edition silver holo polish. I'll be honest, my hopes weren't too high for this but again, I was pleasantly surprised. This went on really nicely, dried super-fast, and was pretty much opaque in two coats. These photos show three coats which I applied just to touch up a couple of slightly patchy nails. My camera, it transpires, is entirely reluctant to pick up holo, so most of these are actually taken on my phone. Even then, this polish is one you really have to see in real life to appreciate fully.


I think those last couple show it best, you can just about see a turquoise flash in the last one! I took these before applying top coat as I was a bit worried that this would hide the holo effect but thankfully, this wasn't the case! (I used Essie's Good To Go top coat.)
What's your favourite Technic nail polish?

Update: I took some more photos in the wonderful bright sunshine today, which seem to show the holo effect better. Here they are! I know a couple are completely out of focus but I've included them because they do show the holo nicely.

  1. I picked this up recently and was also surprised at how nice it was for such a low price :) Your swatches of it look lovely :) My other favourite Technic polish is carnival, a dupe for OPI Rainbow Connection :)
