I hope ya'll aren't tired of You Polish reviews yet haha. Today I have the Holos For a Bright New Year Collection/January Box to share with you! I think we can all agree there is never enough holo polish in this world :P After the jump I have swatch and reviews for you!

Valiant Effort is a medium purple linear holo polish. I don't have many purple holos, I actually don't think I have any, so I opened this one with open arms. I really like this shade of purple!

I did 2 coats of Valiant Effort. I didn't have any issues with application, it was nice and smooth and easy to work with. The dry time was also without problems. No complaints!

Mermaid Charm is a light minty, seafoam linear holographic polish. I think this seafoam polish leans a little toward the grey side. This is a color that never gets old, at least for me it doesn't haha.

I did 2 coats of Mermaid Charm. Like Valiant Effort, I had no issues with application or dry time. It was easy to apply and work with.

You Polish's polish it is the top coat I used.)

Gravender Aura (I JUST understood where the name came from LMFAO) is a lavender grey-ish holo. I can honestly say that I do not have ANY color like this in my collection of many-a-polish. I have a lot of grey blues, some darker grey purples, but no grey lavenders. The holo is subtle, not a INYOFACE linear holo. Some people like that, some people don't - it is what it is! I like both haha

I did 2 coats of Gravender Aura, plus A Girl Obsessed's Top Coat which I've been trying out lately. Sadly, the top coat made the polish bubble after I applied it. :[ But You Polish's polish DOES NOT BUBBLE. Anyways, the application was alright to me. It was smooth but I had problems with it looking "even" on my nail, which is why I applied the top coat to hide that. Dry time was alright, it was like that of a white creme polish so I'd wait between coats.

Radiant Orchid, bearing the name of the 2014 Pantone color of the year, is as Pantone describes as a "harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones". I think Lauren captured the color quite nicely in this linear holo polish.

I did 2 coats of Radiant Orachid. Application was more like the first two polishes: Smooth application, easy to work with and without problems. Dry time was also great.

Outer Limits is a charcoal, greyish black linear holo. Not one of my favorite shades of polish, but I can safely say that this color looks badass with Spectraflair!

I did 2 coats of Outer Limits. Looking at the macro I'm wondering if I should of done 3? I didn't have any application issues or dry time issues. No issues here!

Outer Limits and Radiant Orchid gradient

I decided to play around with the polishes and I sponged some Radiant Orchid over Outer Limits to make a cool looking gradient! I bet all of these polishes would make some awesome gradients!

  3. Oh, that gradient. I've challenged myself to do a new technique every month and this month is gradient. Never thought to do one with holos. Great idea. Gotta go stash shopping now.
