China Glaze Hologlam Collection Swatch: OMG A UFO

China Glaze OMG A UFO (2 coats)

How was your weekend? The garden party was exhausting, but it was well-received. Other than that, we ran some errands and napped. I know, exciting stuff.

I have some of the Hologlam collection from China Glaze that I got for like $2 from a Sally's sale. Sorry I only have 2 pictures of OMG A UFO, but I seem to have lost one of my usual ones. I must admit, I was a bit disappointed in some swatches of the holos from certain bloggers. Some even just looked metallic and not holo at all! I'm not saying my lighting and camera skills are the best, but clearly these are (slightly) linear holographic polishes. No, they aren't anything like the OMG collection, and the price point China Glaze put on these was insulting, but they aren't terrible. OMG A UFO is an awesome olive green holo. Word of warning about these: they don't work well with every basecoat. Just the other day I tried using the Revlon gelcoat basecoat and you couldn't go over the nail twice without it completely balding the area. It did work fine over Gelous and Orly Bonder though. With the right basecoat, only 2 coats was needed.
