China Glaze OMG vs China Glaze Hologram

Tronica has landed at Sally's Beauty Supply!  I was literally there at opening to get my set of 12 holo pretties.  The manager was totally laughing at me, but I just laughed back.  I even put the display up for her (heh).  My store only got 2 full sets, and I bought my set and 5 more for an Aussie friend, so I felt a little bad leaving such an empty display but another employee said they may get another set (or two) soon.  (Yeah right)

OMG on the left, Hologram on the right
Now the big question has been "Are these the original "OMG!" Collection holos?!"  I'm going to be up front and said it - no.  These are more like the Kalidoscope holos (in my opinion) which were more of a glittery holo than the OMG holos which were more of a linear rainbow across the nail.  Sorry friends.

I used a base coat of Seche Natural and 3 coats of each polish.  I did not use a top coat.  OMG is still very streaky and can leave bald spots (a problem with that collection).  I'm going to be purchasing the Nfu-Oh Aqua base next month when they get in a couple of colors I had back ordered but part of me wants it NOW.  I'm told that GOSH also has an Aqua Base that works just as well.  (Aqua bases claim to adhere better with holographic polishes).

My nails are getting ridiculously long.  As you can see in the sun, OMG is a smoother finish which throws off a linear rainbow (you can see the colors across the nail), where Hologram is more of a rainbow glitter spread across the nail.

Holos in the shade, are just blah.  They are never show themselves off and are just kinda bland.

  1. i also cleaned out most of the Tronica stock my Sallys had lol. the lady laughed at me too but they just dont get it lol. this is one i didnt et tho but now i wish i had lol. i wish i could get my hands on some of the OMG ones for not a million dollars.

  2. I got 10 out of 12. Someone else is looking into getting me the last 2. I knew they weren't close to OMG but I was hoping better than that though.

  3. Thanks for the comparison. I'm sticking with my OMG.

  4. I went to Sally's before meeting a local, fellow nail blogger for lunch. I had to ask about the Tronica set. The manager said she thought they were in the back, just not put out yet. Yep, she had them. I took a complete set and asked her to hold the other set for my friend. She wanted them and went after lunch and bought them. They didn't even get a chance to put up the display!
