HEMA Holographic: Pink, Copper & Bordeaux

Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful NYE and a good start of the new year so far :) I recently bought the Bordeaux color of the HEMA Holographic collection, and it surprised me; it covered very well and was a lot more holo than I expected. I already showed a simple stamped mani with it, and after using that polish I couldn't resist the rest of the collection either! Unfortunately the others that I tried so far don't cover as well, but they're nice holos nevertheless. I swatched them in a bit of wintersun and had to hold my hand in unusual angles in that sun to show the holo, so please don't mind the rubbery fingers here and there =)

HEMA Holographic Copper

Starting with HEMA Holographic Copper, 3 coats, no base/top. The polish itself applied nicely, I like the smaller brush, but it's one of those holos where you have to be a bit careful to not drag the previous coat along. So it applied slightly patchy when I rushed a little, and I'd definitely use it with a holo basecoat next time.

If you ask me, this looks a lot more golden-with-a-hint-of-copper than actual copper! And I think I would've loved it a lot more if it was actually a copper holo, but I do like it like this as well. The basecolor itself didn't look bad on me, and it sure has a nice holo effect :)

HEMA Holographic Pink

Next we have HEMA Holographic Pink, again 3 coats without base/top, same application as described above. The sunlight was a bit warm here as you can see on my skintone as well, further below I added a photo made with flash, to show the sweet color a bit better.

Not a very unique color, but it's a cute one, ánd holo, so I'm sure I'll wear this more often! And €3,75 for 11ml holographic polish (that's the size of an A England bottle) makes it even more lovable :)

HEMA Holographic Bordeaux

And last, my favorite of them all so far, HEMA Holographic Bordeaux. 2 coats, no base, with top coat. As you can probably tell by the length of my nails, I've swatched this before some time, so I don't have any sunlight photos of it now. This one applied the best, 2 easy coats, no issues with pulling patches. But it did dry up less shiny than the others, so I did use top coat when I swatched this one.

HEMA Holographic Bordeaux

It's a red based purple with pretty strong holographic effect, but the effect seems a little more scattered than the other polishes that I tried so far. Considering the size/price of these bottles and the effect of them, I hope HEMA will add more holos in the future!

I'll be showing the green, blue and purple some other time, but what do you think of this collection so far? Thanks for looking :)
