Glitter Gal Light As A Feather

After Christmas, I decided to finally put in a purchase of Glitter Gal Light As A Feather (3D/holo) - a white linear (rainbow looking) holographic polish.  This is the old bottle design at 0.3 fl oz, right before Glitter Gal went through a redesign (and renaming) of their bottles & polishes.  You can still find this bottle available at Overall Beauty, where I purchased mine.  I was really excited to try this polish because it just looked amazing - a white (not silver) holo?  I used a base of Duri Rejuvacote and 4 coats of polish.  I did not use a top coat.  Sadly, on top of needing 4 coats, I found this polish to be on the watery side.


Here in the sun, you can see an amazing holo in the bottle, but not nearly as much on the nails.  You can also tell that the white is a bit milky - not opaque as I'd like it.  I need to try this over a white polish to see if that helps.


YAY for blue skies!  BOO to not a strong holo.


As always, shade pictures completely hide and dim any holographic properties of a polish.


Finally indoors with the flash can you see that this is a holographic polish.


Frankly, for $14, I felt let down by this polish.


Glitter Gal [Website] [Facebook] [Twitter] may be purchased directly from their website but be prepared for a steep shipping cost if you're located outside of Australia.  For other e-tailers, there is Llarowe who has the 0.3 fl oz/9 ml (above size) selling for $14, and the new 15 ml bottles (a China Glaze bottle is 14 ml) are being sold for $20; and Overall Beauty who has the 0.3 fl oz/9 ml (above size) selling for $14, and the new 15 ml bottles (a China Glaze bottle is 14 ml) are being sold for $20.  As for shipping, both US e-tailers offer free US shipping for purchases over $50.

  1. I love this polish!! I'm sad that the holo doesn't show in the shade though. I agree, for $14 it should be holo goodness everywhere!

    1. RIGHT? I think I may have had just too high of expectations for a white holo as well.

  2. Excellent review. I've been debating on this for a while and I'm glad you listed both the pros and cons of it. I think I'm going to have to pass with how sheer it tis and lack of holo goodness

    1. Yeah I'm super sad that it's just not more holo. :[ And the milky texture of it.

  3. I've seen this swatched by several people and it just doesn't do anything for me. I think a better way to go would be a white base with Hits Hefesto on top. Bummer you had to find out the hard way, maybe you can use it for frankening?

    1. I haven't dived into the world of HITS yet - it's probably going to be my next new brand tot ry. Maybe a frankening - or stamping idea!

    2. I have Hefesto and it's great because it's so sheer you can put it over any other polish and turn it into a linear holo, and the holo is quite strong!
