I have a habit of wearing similar base colours underneath my holos because they take so many coats to build to opacity, but I did test this one on my thumb to see its true colour:
|Born Pretty Holo Polish #8, No topcoat|
I did find the square shape of the lid a little difficult to hold whilst I was polishing but there was nothing that would cause major problems. The brush is quite long and flat so gives good coverage.
The polish on its own is beautiful, but I wanted to add a little something extra to make it even more special, and I had the perfect polish just sitting on my desk begging to be used. Pocket Money Polishes are a new, British, indie brand made by the lovely Charlie (who you may remember from her guest post in May) and she has designed two collections called her 'Glitter Babies'. (The new one is launching on July the 1st-check out all the details here). This polish is from her first collection and is called Starry, Starry Night and it's GORGEOUS. It's full of blue matte glitter, gold holo glitter and tiny white stars and is almost impossible to capture on camera, especially over the holo background, but I did my best:

You can buy the Born Pretty Holos here, currently they have a 50% off sale so are $6.44 for 6ml, with free shipping.
You can buy Pocket Money Polishes' Glitter Babies here, but they're seriously limited edition-Starry, Starry Night is already gone I'm afraid! They're £4 for 5ml + £1.50 postage. Look out for the new gorgeous collection arriving on the 1st of July!
