China Glaze - DV8

lamp light
I guess you guys have seen this one a gazillion times, this is DV8 from China Glaze. It's one of the polishes from the OMG collection, one of their best collections evah. I say: 'HOLO' (well, actually the correct term is prismatic, but you know wat I mean... ). I think the turquoise colour combines perfectly with the holo rainbows! The next time I will wear it on a sunny day though. 8)

Application was not so nice, but that's my fault. I already applied basecoat and that's a no-no with these kind of polishes (hello bald spots!). After two coats de result was nice and opaque though. I skipped the topcoat, because it can dull the prismatic effect and we wouldn't want that, do we? Polishes like these are great when you're in a hurry, just two thin layers on bare nails and you're ready to go. And it dries very fast! On some nail blogs I read that the OMG polishes chip easily, but my experience with the wear is good, still no chips. :D

Thank you so much for watching and following!

Great polish, one of my favourite CGs. :) And I agree, I never had problems with chipping, with any of the OMG polishes, and I've tried 4 now, I think. I get tip-wear sooner than usual, but that's because I don't use top coat with them. No chipping though.
Wonderful nails, as usual!

@Ulmiel, at first I had some doubts about the OMG polishes but now I'm really glad I bought myself a couple! Also no tipwear yet, I think wrapping your tips with polishes like these can help them stay longer. And thank you! :$

@Renate, I love it too!! When I'm photographing a holo I always try to catch as much light as possible, 'cause holographic polishes love light! I always take my pictures in daylight, but on cloudy days a lamp can help capturing the holo :)
