HOLO WEEK: O.B.A.G.

Here is a true gem, a holographic that I DIDN'T pay a fortune for..LOL.  This is from my collection, before I was really collecting polishes.

I bought this because it was shiny, but never really wore it because it is a "pink", but I am so happy I kept it!!!!

Nicole by OPI
Holly-Pop Red
3 coats




















I'm not sure when this color was released, judging by the name and the fact that it was a holo, I think it was released during the holidays, with that great grey holo polish we all want "Season Gray-tings"...I sooo want that color :P

If anyone knows when this was released ,please let me know :)














This is a great fuchsia/red that has a nice pop of pink undertones.  I topped this with 1 coat of Sally Hansen Hard As Nails (black top) then 1 coat of Seche Vite.  The SH is one of the few top coats that doe not diminish the holo effect.














See how much has evaporated?! Ive only worn this twice..LOL. I've had this for easily 10 years and I have never had to thin it, it's perfect! I keep all my polishes in a cool dark place,  and I know for sure this colors spent 5+ years in the fridge ( I was a freak back then, I don't do this anymore...NO ROOM)..LOL



























This is the old formula so the polish has a strong smell (not bad, but strong), but boy is it worth it :) I've seen this on eBay and it wasn't going for a lot, so grab it if you can, trust me :)
Pin It!
