Like many, my most coveted lemming has always been a true red holographic polish....red is my absolute favorite color and an actual red (not pink) holo polish has always alluded me. I can't tell you how many failed attempts I've made at frankening a red holo....not pretty!!! ha ha.
I recently heard about Glitter Gal polishes, and they had two red holo colors listed on their website, so I decided to give them a try. I got both colors, one called simply "Red" and the other "Not Another Red". I wanted to order both because I didn't want to take a chance of one not being the true red I've been looking for.
General observations about the polish: the most noticeable thing to mention is that the bottles are SMALL. I mean like small. Look at the comparison photo:
The colors in the bottle are beautiful, like put one in the sun and I'll get all distracted staring at it :) The next thing I feel I need to mention is the price. They are $10 each and shipping registered mail to the US cost another $20. So each of the TINY bottles ended up costing me $20 each....by far the most I've ever paid for polish up to this point.
I'll start with Not Another Red. The bottle color is a pinkish red color with a crazy pretty gold holo effect.
This is three coats by itself in shade. This is pretty true to the color, it's a pink holo, not a red.
The second color is called Red. The bottle color is a much richer red shade and the holo effect is more multi-colored. SO pretty in the sun :)
See that rainbow??? Nice! On the nail, it is a beautiful red, although I have to say it is a bit more pinkish in real life than the swatch shows:
This is simply amazing. So pretty!!!
Here are some comparisons. On the left is Not Another Red and the right is Red:
I love them both, but Red is really where my heart is. I adore it. Not Another Red looks much better to me layered over a darker red color. I'd love to hear your opinions, especially if you're ever tried a Glitter Gal polish before.
Thanks for looking!
