Chirality ~ Convergence



Chirality ~ Convergence
Plum holo

Here’s the second Chirality polish I bought from Edgy Polish, which is a Swedish webshop that sells cool indie polishes.

I had forgotten that Chirality’s holos like an aqua basecoat, so I had just applied my regular basecoat. Fortunately I remembered it before I applied the polish, so I slapped on a layer of aqua underwear before I started polishing.

The formula is great over an aqua basecoat. No dragging, no having to be careful and only use light brush strokes. Just great polish coming out of the bottle. It took two coats to make this opaque, and the drying time was good too!

I had no sun available (I do live up in Northern Europe after all), so all the pics are taken with flash. Ladies – this is two coats, and no topcoat:


The holo effect is the same kind as in its sister Asymptote’s (link here) - it’s like a glow from within, that even shows in lower lights.




The plum is a bit dusty – I do wish it had been more “clear”, but hey, you can’t have everything you wish for, can you :)


This looks as if my nails are on fire!


I wanted to add a darker colour to this, to give it a bit of edge. I used a deep shimmery burgundy from Pupa with the number M178. I taped three of my nails and applied the Pupa on the free bit of the nail. Then I made a thin stripe next to the filled in area. And lastly I used a craft punch to make a heart shaped hole in a piece of masking tape; applied it to the nail and filled it in.

I finished the whole thing off by applying one layer of Poshé topcoat, and this is my final mani, right here:


I made hearts on my ring fingers and my thumbs. The heart is a little bit too big for my ring finger, but the craft punch only came in one size so that’ll have to do, LOL!


I am glad to see that Poshé doesn’t dull the holo effect in Convergence – that’s really nice.

I like the quality of the Chirality polishes. They cover nicely and last well. I do wish and hope they would consider making clearer colours too though, so I’ll follow them closely :)

  1. Pretty colour! But I get what you mean by wanting clearer colours. My favourite holos are all really nice colours that can stand on their own if there was no holo in it.

    1. That kind of holos are my favourites too. I do spend more time out of the sun than in the sun after all :)

  2. Convergence is beautiful, but I agree, I'm not into dusty shades very often...

  3. Another beautiful holo! Like you, I also prefer my colors more vibrant and less dusty, but this is very pretty none-the-less. :)

    1. This is in between for me. I've kept it - I don't think it'll end up in the box of shame :)
