Review and swatches: Jessica Hologram Chic set

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 …

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?

  1. this is heaven :stars: svi holo lakovi, a pogotovo srebrni tako prekrasno izgledaju, takva je steta sto ih je tako malo na trzistu :cry:

  2. Res je fuuul lep!!! Bravo Jessica!

    • Ko naslednjič katero izmed večji podjetij spet začne s trditvijo, da se nova formula res ne zastopi z B3F, vemo kam jih usmerit po napotke. :biggrin:

  3. Oh my… :drool: Je sicer hudičevo drag, ampak tudi najlepši holo, kar sem jih videla. :drop: Hočem še! :devil:

  4. I love Jessica stuff. More colours? For sure!

    But there is Glitter Gal. And that is SO easy to apply. Now available in the UK. And, of course, internationally from llarowe.

    • True linear holos that are easy to apply? Maybe I’ll someday splurge on one to try them out, but with 14-20$ for 9ml-15ml + shipping, they’re not high on my wish list. :biggrin:
