I had really hoped that 2011 would be the year of holographics, but it's becoming apparent that this is the year of crackles. I had never heard of Golden Rose nail polishes until I was reading the blog Chromatic Misadventures and I knew I just had to have these considering the price. :)
So Golden Rose is a company in Illinois that has a large range of cosmetics including holographic nail polish for GET THIS - $3.50! Now the bottles are smaller at 0.39 Fl. Oz. (versus 0.5 Fl. Oz. in a bottle of China Glaze or Finger Paints) but they are holographic! As you can see, it's a little diamond shaped bottle with a long thin handle but I didn't find it hard to work with at all. I do wish their colors had names instead of numbers, but I'll deal.
For Paris 108 "Burgundy", I didn't use a base or top coat and this is 2 coats of polish.
Check out that opacity and coverage! Ohhh lovely.
In the shade, you lose the holo look but it's still quite pretty.
You can purchase Golden Rose polishes from their website. They offer free shipping for orders over $20 and free samples as well. Sadly, they do not ship internationally. You can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
