Swatched: Milani 3D Holographics


Holographics (again!) More polishes, I would be lying if I said that I was almost done with my back log, but there are many, many more. Never fret though, I've got a few lipsticks and shadows coming up too. Anyway, in my quest for holos I ended up getting the bulk of Milani's 3D Holographic collection. I got the whole gaggle, save for one: 3D, a gold holo. I'm not usually very big on golds, but now I do kind of wish I'd picked it up as well.

"New specialty nail lacquer that exhibits a unique 3D Holographic effect that no other nail lacquer has ever achieved. The nail lacquer appears to color-shift as the illumination source or the viewing angle changes. This color phenomenon is based on Holographic Image Technology that makes a very thin, bright, embossed metallic flake look like a rainbow. It allows the color to travel from red,orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet; Six distinctive colors of the color spectrum." -Milani website

3D is a silver scattered holo that flashes all the colours of the rainbow/spectrum. The formula on all of these is rather thin, so 2-3 coats are needed. This is two coats.

Milani Holographic Hi-Tech

Hi-Tech is a bright, light green scattered holo. Again, a thin formula, but easy coverage with two coats. I would say that this is my favourite shade out of the collection. It is so fiery when it flashes in the light.

 Milani 3D Holographic Cyberspace

Cyberspace is a blue scattered holo. Following the others, another thin formula. Two coats, looks like there is VNL but it didn't show in person. 

Milani 3D Holographic Hi-Res

Hi-Res is a purple scattered holo. Like the others, this was thin. I ended up using three coats, but it is totally worth it. Just look at the amount of flare! This is my second favourite of the bunch.

Milani 3D Holographic Digital

Digital is a pink scattered holo. Do I really have to say type it again? Thin formula with this one as well. I used three coats. Digital has a great flare and is another fave.

Overall I really like these polishes, even though they aren't linear holos (which seem to be the most popular) they still have a great flash. I love how they sparkle, but are not difficult to remove like your standard glitter. Do you have any of these polishes? Which shade is your fave?

  1. I've had my eye on a few of the Colour Club ones as well but I'm waiting on a couple Nfu Oh holos. Hopefully they'll squelch my need for holo!
