JADE "Hypnose"

Hello :)
As I was looking at my stash today and my ever growing number of holo polishes (it seems EVERY brand is coming out with at least one holo now) I remembered when I didn't even have one and how BADLY I wanted one. I eventually got some NFU-OH holo's, and I wasn't disappointed, to say the least, and I haven't been since. It just led me to ask, "how did we ever live without holo's?"...Seriously? Well I must say, I am a HOLO LOVER and, for someone like me, as I have said before, who is not great at nail art, it's such an easy and fun way to add some fun and "WOWZ" to your nails and some gorgeous, awesome (add all great adjectives here) colors that are just WOW and always get a "OMG! What are you wearing on your nails? It is GORGEOUS!" Now that my stash has it's fair number of holo's, I am one happy camper and, as I said, they have yet to disappoint me. However, there was still one holo that I was lacking and forever wanted to try. A JADE!!!! COME ON! You've seen the swatches, and heard all the hype about them, no? I certainly have. So, when I got one this month from my swap partner, I was SO HAPPY!!! They did not let me down, at all, and now, I want, wait , I mean NEED, more! I want all of them!!!! LMAO!!! But for now, the one I have will have to, and I must say does, suffice. Not to mention it is blue, my absolute favorite colour for not only polish but for everything!!! So, today, I have to share with you an absolute GORGEOUS and AWESOME holo! I am in love with this polish! When it comes to holo, there are, dare I say, different degrees? Some are more "holo" than others and, as I said before, I don't know the differences between them all but, there's linear and scattered...all I know is that what I am about to show you is a holo polish and...........well..... IS IT EVER!!!! Let's just get to this beauty!!! But first, as always, a bit about the polish........

JADE "Hypnose": from their "Holografico" collection, I did first apply my NFU-OH aqua base ,(a base specifically for holo polishes) as I always do, so I had no balding issues. But I have heard from most, that after a few coats, balding is not an issue with this brand. I put on 3 coats and then a top coat. I am always not sure if I should add one when it comes to holo's. Some say "yes" some say "no" but it really depends on the polish/brand. In the case of some holo's, a top coat may take away the holo effect of the polish and make it dull. So, I asked around in my nail groups for opinions, and the popular vote (more than popular, almost all agreed) that when it comes to Jade holo's, add a top coat and it does not affect the look. If, you add a top coat and you feel that it made it look dull, you can always add one last coat over the top coat. This is what I do with other holo's that do suffer dullness when a top coat is added. But, for me, 3 coats then a top coat and all was fine:) As for description of this polish (sorry, I got a bit off track here).... "HYPNOSE" is a gorgeous electric, blue polish, full of holo goodness!!!

*as I will show in my last picture(in shade, there is a difference), holo polishes really are "holo" when it is in the sun. Like almost all holo polishes, the sun is what makes the holoness show. Jade polishes do still hold when not in the sun, but, of course, they look at their best, in the sun:)

                                                In the sun

Just look at this gorgeous holo!!! Look at it in the sun!!!

Do you see that Rainbow flair?? See what I mean when I say holo's come to life under the sun? When in the sun, you can see that "rainbow flair" which is, as you can see at the bottom of my nails, how the color kind of has a "rainbow" affect...see it?

I just LOVE this blue! LOOK AT IT!!! IS it not gorgeous?? It can't just be me who thinks this is a gorgeous holo, right??

See that "v" shape in every nail, it kind of has a "rainbow" effect? that is a holo polish, doing it's job under the sun:):):)

SO GORGEOUS!!! Can't say it enough!!!!

Even, just looking at the bottle shots, you can see the holo effect it has when in the sun:):)

so, yes, it is still a beautiful color, but as I said, it really is the sun that shows the holo goodness of holo polishes. Albeit, with this polish , you do still see some rainbow flair, even inside, but you can't see it in pictures. So, yes, even without sun, this holo is still a holo, but, as you can see, it is under the sun that it is at is best:)

So, what do you guys think? Don't you agree with me? This is a GORGEOUS holo, no? I am in love!! As I said, I have quite a few holo's in my stash now but this one is going right to the top of my holo list! It's blue (my fav color), it's easy to apply and has no balding and it's just gorgeous!! I love it! so, what do you guys think of it? Agree with me? Think it is a gorgeous holo???? Do you have any Jade holo's? If so, which do you have? If not, what do you have for holo polishes and which are your fav? I hope you guys enjoyed my post and hope to hear from you guys!!! Until next time...............

                                                              your fellow polished pal,

*these polishes were given to me in a swap. It was on my wishlist, and I did a swap with someone for some random polishes. They see what I like, I see what they like and we go from there. Seeing as this was on my Wishlist, my partner chose to give it to me as part of our swap. I sent her polishes in return. So, it was not purchased with my own money but it was part of a swap and all opinions expressed in this post are my own from my experience with this polish. IT was new and never used.
