FNUG Holographics

Yep, more holos, this time from FNUG. These are in my stash thanks to mrsrexy at Canadian Nail Fanatic, who included them in a surprise package she sent me with all sorts of goodies. I admit I started in on the edible items pretty much right away, but it took me much longer to get a chance to try these polishes since sunshine and swatching time don't seem coincide very often. There are three colors: Psychedelic (silver), Fantastica (green), and Futuristica (blue). The bottles come in the nail polish version of tantalizing lingerie, sheer drawstring bags that invite one to remove them to see the beauty behind the veil.



On the recommendation of The Holo Queen, I used a holo base coat with these FNUGs (I used Nfu Oh Aqua Base) and no topcoat. All swatches today are two coats of color.

I started with Psychedelic, the silver. The least colorful I could get it to look was in the diffuse light of my lightbox, as shown below:



In regular room light, a bit more direct than the lightbox, the rainbows started to show up for real:



In lower levels of indoor light, there were still rainbows:



In the sunshine, the rainbows were ridiculous:





It was the same story with Fantastica, the green. Lightbox:



Direct indoor light:



Low indoor light:



Sunshine:





Futuristica, the blue one, performed just as well as the other two. Lightbox:



Direct indoor light:



Low indoor light:



Sunshine:





Just look at those rainbows! I am so appreciative that mrsrexy made it possible for me to have these in my stash. Thanks, lady!

I did do some comparisons of these to other holos in my stash, but since this entry is already photo heavy, I'll save those for another blog post in the near future, possibly even tomorrow depending on whether I can stay focused.

  3. Those are all gorgeous. The price is just not worth it for me. I'd have to stick with the colour club holos
