Revolution Beauty has released a set of Holographic Nail Polishes for £5. They each have ml and have a 12-month shelf life once opened. They are vegan and cruelty-free.
Our 7-shade collection of holographic nails varnishes will take your nails out of this world. Swipe over the top of your favourite Revolution nail shade, or load up on their own for a truly galactic holographic effect.
Enriched with avocado oil, our unique varnishes help to nourish nails whilst offering a gorgeous high shine finish. Plus, all nail colours have been specially formulated to cover the nail in just one coat, perfect for express at home manicures or lunchtime touch ups!
There are seven colours in this range so I bought five of them. I chose the ones that appealed to me the most.
Now Revolution does state that these are one coat polishes. I disagree unless you’re a fan of sheer polish. I’m not. I definitely needed a second coat on all of them to made them a solid colour. This does of course mean they can be used as toppers though.
They lasted well on my nails, not chipping more than any other polish. The finish isn’t quite high shine but since I always recommend using a top coat for longevity (as well as a base coat), I’m not worried about that.
They’re all also very holographic. They’re linear holographic polishes, so if you have ridges in your nails you might need to use a ridge filling base coat. My ridges aren’t too pronounced so it wasn’t an issue but chips in the ends of your nails will show.
So let’s take a look at each of them in turn.
Aura is described as silver and it’s definitely that. This one needs three coats to be fully opaque but is more than acceptable in two. The holographic nature of this one is very pronounced so easily distracts from any colour change between the nail bed and tip
Galactic is described as Pink/Red. it’s much more Red than Pink after two coats. The linear holographic is also fairly strong, more than I was able to capture on camera.
Luna is described as black. It’s not. It’s grey but that’s mostly the fault of the holographic pigments. I’ve yet to meet a true black holo.
Spectrum is described as blue. it’s blue and it’s shiny. The holo is nice in this one. Again two coats are needed for full coverage.
Supernova is described as purple. It’s a pretty purple colour with a nice holographic shift. It’s more lilac on one coat.
So are they worth it? Yes. they’re proper holographic polishes. The dry time is average. I’d not call them one coat polishes because to me that means they’re opaque in one coat. They’re not. If you’re into sheer and holographic they’ve got you covered.
If you’d like to get your hands on these, they’re available from Superdrug or Revolution Beauty for £5 each.
