China Glaze Don't Be A Luna-tic. Pale, cool-toned seafoam green holo.
The formula on these was great. Absolutely perfect. Thin and smooth-flowing without being runny, yet nicely opaque. I didn't have any of the typical holo-polish application problems like bald spots, running or streaking. Most colors were almost completely opaque in one coat. I used two coats for all colors here. No basecoat, no topcoat. The only problem I had with any of these is that a few of the brushes were frayed on the ends. Very fast dry time on all shades.

I think these are really good. I'm not disappointed. The formula is better than I expected it to be and the colors are nice. Not all of them are unique, but attractive nonetheless. The holographic effect could be stronger, but, you know, I'm pretty happy with them. They're a lot better than the limited edition Tronica holo collection that was gone in the blink of an eye last year (or was it the year before?), and they have a smoother holographic sheen than some of the other holos that have been released recently. They're not chunky like the Kaleidoscopes and they're not too frosty and streaky like the OMGs. I approve.
The China Glaze Hologram Collection will be available starting in April 2013. MSRP on these is $14 each due to the cost of the materials.
