Australian Series: Glitter Gal - Black Holographic

Hi everyone~ One of my biggest lemming since discovering holographic nail polish is to find a black shade. I have since learned that the original OPI My private jet is a black holo but is unfortunately sold at insanely inflated prices. Color Club Revvvolution is a pretty charcoal holo which remains to be my favourite holographic polish. However, it's not black and darn it, I want black! And finally, I received Glitter Gal Black in the mail. It's such a beautiful sunny day that I finally decided to wear the pretty that is Black.

I took too many photos and couldn't decide which ones to post so there's a light spammage of black holo goodness! :) All were taken under direct sunlight unless otherwise stated.

I applied two coats of Black onto my nails and finished with a top coat. The polish was slightly thick and is really opaque. If you're careful, you can definitely get away with one and save on the precious polish.

Blurry shot to really show off the scattered holographic effect.

Indoors, under natural light. It's not much when it's not directly under the sun, but I still love it :) And oops, my top coat is so glossy that my nails reflected my top :P I didn't realise this until I uploaded the photo!

And back under the sun. Oh Black, how I adore thee. It's black, it's holographic and just look at the rainbow of colours ♥

Glitter Gal 3D Holographic nail polishes retail for $11.95. Each bottle contains 9mL of polish, which may not seem like a lot for the price - however, true holographic particles are used in their formula. Kerry from Glitter Gal sent me the below information to explain this.
We use “true” holographic particles in our formulation. This one ingredient is 30 times more expensive than any other nail polish ingredient. Thus making our holographic nail polish the highest quality possible. You will notice the smoothness to the finish of polish, and reflective effects are amazing. They are also the “Big 3 Free”.

Many other companies have tried create holographics, but use the more affordable ingredients, which don’t give the polishes the same effect, we didnt want to compromise on quality and wanted to deliver to our customers a true holographic formulation. I hope this helps.
Glitter Gal nail polishes are available online at www.glittergal.com.au and they ship internationally! :) Australian stores such as The Perfume Connection also stock the brand. For more information of stockists both internationally and within Australia, check out the stockist page.

-UPDATE- You can now purchase Glitter Gal nail polishes from llarowe if you live within the US as they are the official stockists. I'm sure shipping fees will be much cheaper this way :)

  2. Haha, it totally is. Love ♥

  3. Absolutely gorgeous!! Gotta love an Aussie holo :)

  4. I just discovered a new black holo here in the states, unfortunately no stores down under. Do you swap?


  5. wow... that's just amazing!

  6. I think the glittery nail lacquer is perfect for the fashionistas and the younger ones. For me, I prefer French tips and Platinum colours because of my tanned skin tone. I love my toes with the clean and natural colours.

  9. Ahh, maybe :) I do tend to sway more towards the 'blingy' nail polish as opposed to french tips.
