Review: 17 Holographic Nail Polish

17 Holographic Nail Polish - £3.99
I've heard of holographic nail varnish before but it's never been high up on my to buy list so when I was in Boots recently and saw the 17 Holographic Nail Polish, I decided to buy it to see what the fuss was about!

I know people have spoken about the GOSH Holographic Nail Varnish before but as I haven't tried it I didn't know what to expect so I decided to pair 17's Holographic Nail Polish with the Barry M Nail Paint in Cappuccino to use it as an accent nail.

Products used were:
- AVON Revitacool Base Coat
- Barry M Nail Paint in Cappuccino
- 17 Holographic Nail Polish
- Sally Hansen Double Duty

I had to use two coats of the Barry M Nail Paint in Cappuccino to get fully opaque nails whereas I just needed one coat of 17's Holographic Nail Varnish as it is so opaque. The holographic nail polish dried much quicker than the Barry M Nail Paint and lasted much longer without chipping too!

The 17 Holographic Nail Polish itself is very very pretty. It does look better in the sunlight as the little particles flash multicolour when you move your hand but close up it isn't too noticeable that it's holographic. I was very proud of wearing this nail polish and tried to show as many people as I could, most of which replied with "no it's not, it's silver" so it does look better in the sunlight. 
Overall I really like this nail polish. It lasted well over a week and didn't chip at all although I'm not sure if I'd like to wear it on all 10 nails as I could see myself getting fed up with it after a few days but as an accent nail I love it.
