But could it be true? Was this beautiful, five dollar holo real? I had to know, so today I bolted to my local Sally's, iced coffee in hand despite the -17F weather.
I searched the display high and low. Holo? What holo? I couldn't find it. I picked up a few metallic looking polishes until finally I found...this:
|Chromatic Creation in indoor lighting.|
I bought it anyway and headed outdoors to my car...and the light hit the swatch on my thumbnail.
Formula-wise, it's not terrible. I've never experienced the wonders of a Color Club holo or the like, but I do know holos risk being finnicky and streaky. Unfortch, this runs somewhat in that vein if you paint it on too thick. Thin coats work well, let them dry between and by two coats it should be fairly opaque. You do have to wipe the brush off with each pull, as the formula is runny and it's way easy to get too much. It also does run a tiny bit brush stroke-y, but not nearly as bad as chrome or frost polishes can.

|Those weird bumps on my index finger are not the polish, psoriasis has given me stupid nail deformities. Thanks genetics.|
And with all that said, I think there is only one way to truly, truly truly wrap up this post:
