NOTD: China Glaze TMI holo goodness and stamping


This is one of the holos that Alanna picked up for me. We're heading towards winter here so I took advantage of the sun and put on 2 coats over Orly Bonder. China Glaze TMI is a pretty warm-hued salmon linear holo. Bling!


I love how linear holos are usually opaque in 1 coat, apply thinly and go on super smooth, which isn't surprising when you consider how they work. TMI is one of the smoothest polishes I've ever used, it just glides on beautifully. I've had a crappy nail breakage on my left thumb - it gets caught on everything! I tried to stick it together with polish for about a week, and the only thing that hasn't worked so far is TMI, it's just way too thin. Balls!


After a day I got bored and stamped on top with ulta3 Orchid (PRC version). I'm loving the PRC ulta3s for stamping! Unfortunately after the second topcoat the holo's gone duller, but it's still very pretty I think.


What's your favourite holo polish?
