Why not?! ANOTHER post about holos! ;)
I've noticed that there is some confusion regarding what linear and scattered holo really is. I'm definitely no expert but I have done A LOT of research on this subject lately. Here's what I've found out and maybe not everyone agrees but this is what agrees with me ;)
First of all, the terms linear and scattered are, as far as I know, only used by us lacquer heads and not by the producers. They don't even often say holographic but call it things like diamond dust or diamond shimmer.
Even the distributors (Llarowe.com for example) seem to have different criteria and use the terms differently. Let's look at what we're talking about, shall we? :)
The holo effect is scattered with no real prism...
It has the qualities of both a scattered holo (bigger holo particles with holo effect all over the nail) AND the qualities of a linear holo (clear and strong visible prism in multiple colours).
I think we should call it a linear scattered holo OR a scattered holo with a linear effect.

Of what I have seen and read on lots and lots of blogs, some of you will probably disagree with me but I know some of you will agree with me too. ;) I've seen that some of you (even long term established bloggers) use the same words as I ;)
Let's just face it though, even if we disagree on the words - we all love those gorgeous holo polishes! <3
Feel free to comment this post with your thoughts though ;)
Is this a Swedish thing maybe...?
Should we just call all holos just holos instead to make thing easier...?
