Hi everyone! Today I have the only polish I bought from the new China Glaze Shades of Paradise Collection. I probably would have bought others, but the display at my Sally Beauty was really picked over and had wrong items in it, etc, so this was the only one I ended up getting. The great news is this is a holographic polish! I love when mainstream polish companies put out something other than the same cremes or shimmers!

I’d heard around online forums that this was a weak holo so I was afraid it would be like the Hologram collection from quite a few years ago, but it’s not! This has a really great holographic flame when you get in bright lights or outside in the sun!! And it looks nice in regular indoors lighting as well in my opinion.
Ma-holo At Me is a sky blue holographic polish. The formula is really easy to work with, just don’t overwork the polish by going over the same area or you may get some balding. Once I learned that, it was really smooth and easy to apply. It will dry a little bit dull, so a good shiny topcoat is needed. I used Glisten & Glow’s topcoat that used to be called HK Girl. (I think it’s just called their top coat now.) I used just two coats plus topcoat.

Outside in the sun. Although the polish in person looks the best outside in the sun, the pictures were all off color. This is much more cornflower blue than the polish looks in real life. But it does show off some of the holo goodness, so I wanted to include these photos too…

Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.
