If you’ve been following my posts lately, you will have noticed that I’ve been using a gorgeous gold holographic polish in a few of my manicures. This polish is from Born Pretty Store and is aptly named Heart of Gold.
This 10 mL bottle is full of gold shimmer and holographic goodness. The packaging is pretty cute, too!
This polish admittedly does have a strong smell to it that is similar to acetone, but the formula is just the right consistency where it is not too thick or thin. There is a mixing ball in the bottle to easily stir up the contents should the pigments start separating from the formula. The handle also holds a fairly wide brush that makes it easy to paint your nails in 1-2 strokes.
The opacity of the polish is astounding. You can get a decent amount of coverage with just one coat of polish, although I recommend applying 2 coats for the best color payout.
Oh, and did I mention how beautiful the holographic effect is? It really sparkles in bright light and reflects rainbows like a prism.
The formula dries fairly quickly, and it doesn’t chip too easily if you apply base and top coats along with the color. I’ve been wearing the manicure below for about a week, and it still looks nearly flawless. The best part is that the gold color makes any chips look less noticeable.
Because the polish is so heavily pigmented, it is great to use with stamping plates. Heart of Gold looks especially chic over black nail polish.
I have to say that I absolutely love this nail polish and am now coveting all the other holographic colors on the Born Pretty website. If you love holo, then you really should try this polish out!
