Glitter Gal's Red 3D/Holo has a very strong holographic effect, and top coats do not dull it. It applies easily without dragging or bald spots. It is very sheer and requires multiple coats to become opaque, unless you use it over another opaque polish. In good lighting, this polish is more of a strawberry pink than a true red. I am not a fan of the color pink in any shade. I simply wont wear pink polish, so I am very disappointed with the color.
This Glitter Gal polish was $16 with shipping included, so I had to try to salvage this color "mistake". The solution for me is layering.
On the left is 2 coats of Glitter Gal Red 3d/holo.
On the right is one coat of Revlon Top Speed
in Cherry with 1 coat of Red/3D holo on top,
and 1 coat of Orly Sec 'N Dry.
I have several burgundy garments in my closet that could use a lovely burgundy polish to go with them, so this layering result works for me. It also gives the option of wearing purple polish for a day or 2 then doing a quick change by adding the red holo over it to go with a different outfit. I'm still on the quest for a strong red holo that is truly red, and not pinkish.
Coming soon.... reviews of 2 more holographic polishes, Color Club's Revvvolution & Worth The Risque used as stamping polishes!
