Jade ~ Violetta


Jade ~ Violetta  
Purple with a strong linear holo effect

There’s only 8 ml in Jade’s holos, so I decided to save the precious polish and put on some underwear for it. I applied one coat of Max Factor Glossfinity “Amethyst”, which is a squishy looking purple. I didn’t take a pic of this step – I had bald spots here and there so it definitely needs two coats to work on its own.

Then I applied one layer of Jade “Violetta”. Application was very easy, it covered my underwear perfectly – no bald spots, no problems with getting it to look good. The only downside is the smell. It doesn’t smell very good! (reading that all back it sounds hilariously weird, so I leave it unchanged, LOL!)

And here it is in all its glory:


There’s no top coat on yet. I can’t believe how fantastic a holo this is! There are little rainbows on all my nails, and it’s soooo pretty.

There are even rainbows in lower light too. Here’s a pic taken in daylight, but without direct sunlight:


Pretty eh? I’m totally in love with this holo! 
But even though I find this extremely pretty, I still had the need to modify it. I went for glittery tips. I used Revlon’s “Star”, which is a clear base with different sized glitter. I sponged it onto my tips, and my mani was done:

 
Then – mostly to seal up the glitter – I applied one coat of Seche Vite top coat. It didn’t seem to dull the holo effect at all, at least not in real life.


All in all I’m love with this holo. It’s definitely not my last Jade. What’s your favourite holo, if you have one?

    1. I am too! Too bad we're entering Autumn now. Less sun, less use of holos, really. What a shame :)

  2. Haha, you are right about that paragraph sounding strange. Very amusing :-)

    This purple holo is stunning, and I really like it with the glitter too. My favourite holo is probably Milani's purple holo (Hi Res is the name I think) :-)

    1. I considered changing the paragraph, but I thought it sounded so funny that I decided to keep it as it was :D

    1. Ooh, you're lucky to have that China Glaze, it was HTF even when I started to be a nail polish collector :)
      DS Glamour is stunning too!

  10. You know what? I think you are the first blog that actually pointed out the size of these as 8ml. I always thought they were full size-well I don't need to lemming them anymore! Thanks babe!

    1. You're welcome, sweetums! It's cooler to kill lemmings by actually shipping polish over, but this is a much cheaper way of doing it, LOL!

  11. Wow, I don't care if it's 8 ml or 3 ml, it looks AMAZING! =)) But ofcourse I would prefer it would be 15 ml polish. ;P
    It looks great on you! <3

    1. You're totally right, but when the polishes are really pretty, you want them bottles to be bigger, right? :D
      Thank you so much sweetie! <3
