I wanted to share with you some polishes I have from the China Glaze OMG collection. These are all awesome holographic colors. You can still find many of these on Head2Toe Beauty.
These are the ones I have.

When I first used these I used them the same way I did with any other nail polish. I started out with basecoat. This is where you go wrong with these holos. If you put these on with basecoat the application is terrible. It will go on streaky and you will have bald spots. After this happened I did some research. I found Scrangie's post about these. That's where I got the idea to not use basecoat. These do not stain, so you can get away with it. The application is so much smoother. You can get the perfect application in 2 coats with no streaks or bald spots. She recommends not to use topcoat because she said it dulls the holographic effect. I used Seche Vite and I personally didn't find this to be an issue. The one down side to these is they chip quickly. They don't chip nicely either they will usually chip off in big pieces. I'm on day 2 of wearing 2NITE and I'm just noticing 2 big chips on my index finger and thumb. It's not bad if you're someone who wears a mani for 2-3 days, but these will not last a week in my opinion. I still think they're worth it because they're so pretty! Now, I'm going shut up and show you the colors!
BFF- A holographic cool toned pink.
DV8- A holographic turquoise blue.
2NITE- A holographic sky-periwinkle blue
IDK-A holographic lavender
LOL-A holographic violet-purple
Overall, I really like these polishes and recommend them. Even though they have some negatives I think the uniqueness of the finish and the price make them worth it. I've also heard these are great for Konading! I hope you enjoyed these colors!
I have to add my boyfriend likes these colors. When I ask him to pick my mani he always picks one of these. I think it's because holographicness reminds him of electronics and cars....-sigh- Men are weird :P!
