China Glaze Hologlam Collection Haul and Swatches

My China Glaze Hologlam collection holographic nail polishes arrived today! I was so excited, I had to take pictures and swatch them all. Unfortunately one of them (Strap On Your Moonboots) broke in transit, so there is quite a bit of polish on some of the other bottles, but I just quickly wanted to take some pictures while it was sunny. Luckily the bottle didn't smash completely, only the top broke off, so I could still swatch the polish (there's about 2/3 left in the bottle as it remained standing).


I haven't worn any of them yet, so can't comment on wear time. The swatches show just one coat, I'd probably do two for a better coverage, but they are nicely pigmented. The holo effect isn't as strong as some other (namely Color Club and Glitter Gal), but it's not too bad, it's still linear and perfectly visible. The pictures were taken in strong sunlight, so they are as good as they get. All the pictures were taken without flash.

The colours are nice, not massively unique, but pretty anyway. OMG A UFO looks rather yellow/gold in the pictures, it's actually more khaki than yellow in real life. Don't Be A Lunatic and Sci-Fly By are very close, Sci-Fly By is a little bit darker, but hardly noticable. Get Out Of My Space and Astro Hot look quite similar in the pictures, but Get Out Of My Space is definitely more purple in real life.

While the holo effect isn't as strong as I hoped, these polishes are really nice and I'm glad I got them all. I ordered mine from Nail Polish Direct and they cost £8.95 for 14 ml each.

See lots more pictures after the jump!

In the picture below I'm wearing Color Club Cherubic on my nails which as you can see has a much stronger holo.

  2. Wow so beautiful! I find it that china glaze chips so horribly faster than any other nail polish brand 8(

    1. Yes, China Glaze polishes chip on me very quickly too. :( But I just couldn't resist, they are so gorgeous.

    2. I'm happy to report that Strap On Your Moonboots wore on me for about 36 hours with no chipping and was still okay after 48 hours. That's my average, so I'm happy with that.

  4. I love these shades! I've just got a Color Club holo too, and I don't think it's more holographic than these CG's, but it does seem a bit brighter or perhaps has a bit of scatter as well as linear? x
