Gosh Holographic Hero

Holographic Hero by Gosh was one of the most anticipated re-releases of it's time when it hopped back on the shelf a few years ago. Though, I believe, most people were left a little disappointed, not only had the polish changed in formula but the holographic look just wasn't the same. I really can't tell you whether that's true or not, I'm just going off what I've read in previous posts on holographic hero.

The first time I saw this swatched I fell in love. The beautiful holographic shimmer that brought a stunning rainbow to your nails (in a good light) is what sold me. And for only £3.99 it was a good price. I believe, when Gosh released this they had in mind that it would only be a 24 hour polish that shows on the lid of the bottle. I have a lot going on during the day, but it lived up to it's 24 hour mark and more, lasting a good 48 hours before starting to chip. I'm not going to lie and say it's the best formula in the world (I love my creamy nail lacquer), it's a little on the thin side and due to being holographic it's on the sheer side, therefore takes a good 3/4 layers to achieve full-coverage and unless completely dry it can look somewhat streaky when applying another coat  Holographic wise, it's not at all on the same level has Chanel' holographic polish (which I saw on Ebay for £100 - omg!) But nevertheless still a very pretty polish and a nice enough finish, the holographic comes alive in certain lights but mainly sunlight. I tried to catch it the best I can on the photo's, feel free to click picture to enlarge.

A small tip is to apply a dark polish before holographic, this will achieve the same look using less polish. This goes for two toned polishes too that tend to be on the sheer side.
