NOTD: Born Pretty Holo

Born Pretty Holo Nail Polish Shade 8 Bottle Shot
A few weeks ago, Born Pretty Store held a promotion to celebrate the launch of their new line of Holo nail polishes; in return for hosting an ad on your blog for a week, you could request a bottle of the Holo polish in a shade of your choosing. Free nail polish!? As you can imagine, I was there like a shot, and this little beauty arrived this week; I went for shade 8, which is a pretty light blue shade. For the photos below, I applied three coats over OPI's Nail Envy, with no top coat, and all photos are taken in direct sunlight. The polish applied really nicely, going on smoothly and evenly (although I found the small brush made it quite tricky to apply neatly), and dried fairly quickly too. Two coats would have been okay, and were enough for the holo effect to show, but I went for three to make it a little bit more opaque. The holo effect isn't quite as strong as shown in the photos online, although I imagine it could be increased by using a dedicated holo base coat. Either way, I really like this polish and would love to add a couple more shades from the range to my collection!

Do you like Holo polish? Did you manage to get any of the Born Pretty Holos?
