China Glaze Take a Trek is another from the Hologlam collection. This one is a dark slate blue.
Here’s the next swatch I’m going to show you from the awesome China Glaze Hologlam collection. Today, we have Sci-Fly By which is a silver/light blue. This one has a lot more holo effect than the one I showed you yesterday (Don’t Be a Luna-Tic).
The one con I’ve noticed about the two I’ve tried so far is that they show every imperfection in your nail. I have bumps and ridges and if you’re staring at your nails (which you will with these colors on!) then you’re going to notice them more. However, it’s not going to be like some stranger is sitting across from you thinking, “WTF Is wrong with her nails?!” So I think it’ll be ok. :)
Let me set the mood…it’s a dark and stormy Northwest evening. My husband is playing Call of Duty. I’m bored. I decide that I need to go to Sally Beauty to get at least one of the new China Glaze Hologlam collection. I bribe my husband with promises of also going to GameStop. He falls for it. As I’m walking up to Sally Beauty, there is a sign. A sign that must be too good to be true…Buy two, get one free!
I am the luckiest girl in the world! :) They only had 9 of the 12 in the collection, so I’ll have to stalk Amazon or something to find them. Can’t have an incomplete collection, now can I??
Here are teaser pics of all the bottles and I put on Don’t Be a Lunatic. It’s amazing. :P

And for our first guy, Don’t be a Luna-Tic. This is a gorgeous silver/light green. There have been some people on the internet complaining that these aren’t holo-enough. I think that this first one is wonderful! And, it was the least impressive in the bottle so that’s why I did it first. I am one happy camper!
I went into Sally Beauty today and guess what collection was buy one, get one free?! That’s right, the China Glaze Cirque du Soleil collection! So I picked up Running in Circles and Get Carried Away.
Running in Circles is a wonderful green shimmer that is very eye-catching. It went on easily with two coats. This will be a great color for Christmas manicures as well as some in the spring–especially St. Patrick’s Day! I can’t tell you how much I’m loving this polish!
For this mani, I started with two coats of Julep Viola which is a deep, dark purple. It almost looks black if you don’t look closely. Then I put one coat of China Glaze Luxe and Lush which is from last year’s Hunger Games collection. It’s a white flakies glitter that catches almost ever color in the light!
