Peggy Sage Holo Style ~ Blue Promise

Peggy Sage Holo Style ~ Blue Promise
Sky blue holographic

I ran into a new polish brand last time I was in Sweden: Peggy Sage. I don’t know if it’s new to the market, but I know it’s new to me – I’ve never heard about the brand before. I bought two to try them out.

The first one I’ll show you is Blue Promise, a nice sky blue holographic.

First of all: It requires an aqua basecoat! I tried out with my regular basecoat first, but it was a streaky, patchy mess – Yucksville City, Wyoming - so I started all over again with the aqua basecoat, and now the polish applies like a dream. I used two coats for the swatches and the drying time between the coats is pretty good. I didn’t apply topcoat before I took my pictures.

Here’s two coats and no topcoat, picture is taken with flash:

It’s a pretty blue in the sunshine, that’s for sure.

It’s a little bit more “boring” in the shadow. There are still tiny rainbows but the colour fades quite a bit.

So I added a darker blue to the tips. I sponged Kiko’s #440 Electron Blue from the Digital Colleciton on the tips, and that helped. Here’s the final mani taken with flash:

Here’s a low light picture. It reminds me of the sky with glitter on top! :D

One last shot just because I want to.

I like the quality of the polish, so I must admit I’m looking forward to trying the other one I bought.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Finish: holographic that requires an aqua basecoat
Overall impression: I  love the colour in the sun – I find it a little bit boring out of the sun, because it’s so pale. The holo effect is quite okay though.
Buy again: No
