I was researching Jessica Smoky Feather nail polish, when I bumped into Jessica Hologram Chic set. Hologram? Set? I need to know more. :biggrin:
I became totally obsessed with this set and sent out bunch of emails to see where could I buy it. Guess what – it was sold out and our importer did not have this limited edition set. :cry: It’s mild to say that I was terribly disappointed. :sigh:
Few weeks went by and Heavy Petal LE came to Slovenia. But what instantly raised my blood pressure was sideline info … and we received few of the Hologram Chic sets too. YES! :happy:
I was seriously impatient to try out this combo. Why? I’ve been hearing a lot that true linear holographic polishes almost disappeared because new formula (B3F) does not agree with the “holo powder”. And since Jessica is B3F and cruelty free to boot …
You get Retro Revival (water based base coat) and Disco Diva (silver linear holographic nail polish) in a white box with holographic Jessica logo and name of the set.
Instructions: apply 2 coats of Retro Revival hologram base coat, followed by 2 coats of Disco Diva. Do not use a top coat.
First I applied Retro Revival base coat (only one layer :blush: ). Those of you who are familiar with this kind of formula, know how annoying it is to apply true holos over regular base coats. I love the shine of water based base coats and Retro Revival gets a plus for more pleasant smell when compared to Nfu-Oh Aqua Base.
I used 2 coats of Disco Diva and was very pleasantly surprised to see that application was piece of cake. Verdict? It’s a holographic nail polish in the true sense – linear holo all the way. Which basically means that it looks silver in the shade, has pretty (but not strong) holographic finish when exposed to daylight bulbs …
…and “wow” effect in the sun. :silly:
If you are linear holo fan, then you are going to enjoy in this close up photo of holographic effect. :cute:
This set does not come cheap – 24 USD in USA and 26 EUR if you buy it from our distributor. In the end I received this set as a gift from the kind couple who imports Jessica. :rose:
But as I did go to their office with intention of buying the set, the price was obviously still acceptable to me. I would rather see whole color range of linear holos sold individually from Jessica though. Hopefully Hologram Chic set was just a teaser. :cute:
Anyone else who got this set and would like to see more holos from Jessica?
