H&M Glitter Nail Polish Blue - swatches and review

H&M has started a fairly new line of glitter polishes and this darling is one of them. It has the exciting name "Blue" :P

Normally I loathe bar glitters but in this polish I love it! Maybe because it's holo bars ;) My florist teacher always said: "If you have a good idea, don't hold back!" So that is what I did with this polish ;) This is two generous coats on top of OPI Dating a Royal. I don't think I would have liked it if the bar glitters had been sparse but with this many bar glitters it's gets an almost fuzzy look and I love that!

This is also my contribution to this week's Holo Friday :)



GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT BLUE:

Type of polish: Holographic glitter.

Colour: Holographic bar glitter and holographic micro glitter in a sheer blue jelly base.

Opacity: Hm... this polish is probably best for layering. For opacity you might need 4-5 coats.

Formula: Very nice! A very nice formula which is very easy to apply! And the bar glitters don't stick out of the nail when you apply this polish. Somehow they're just drawn back onto the nail. No pushing or filing or cutting needed! :D

Brush: Very good! Very nice to apply with.

Shine: Very shiny on its own so I have no top coat in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate, but much more holographic, glittery and sparkly irl!

Grade: 5/5 :D

This polish is really amazing irl! It's even holographic in the shade! :D The formula is great too! It's a cheaper version of Ciaté's "Jewel" except that Jewel is light purple of course ;) But the same texture and amazing effect. Take a look at Jewel here.

Do you like Blue?
What is your opinion on bar glitter? ;)

  2. Nej, jag har så svårt för strängglitter att jag inte gillar det. Däremot är den blå färgen fantastiskt fin.

  4. Not a fan of bar glitter but this does look really neat! Not sure I could actually go out and buy it though. Thin bar glitter isn't my thing.

    1. Thanks Kelsey! :D It was so hard to capture the beauty of this polish! It is really stunning irl!!
      H&M has a pretty big range of polishes here in Sweden. Doesn't H&M have any polishes at all where you live? :O

    1. Hi pet! I'm glad you like it! Most people seem a bit negativa about it unfortunately. But I don't care! I like it and I'm so glad you agree! :D
      It does actually look like the bars are moving! And the holo enhances it even more! Thinking a lot of you darling! Viele Küsschen!! xx

  9. Det ser fint ut på dina bilder men jag misstänker att jag inte skulle gilla det på mig själv.

    1. Så är det ju ibland. Fint på andra, men inte på en själv. Smaken är ju som bekant som baken ;)

  10. Nja, strängglitter kommer nog aldrig bli en favorit hos mig. Däremot tycker jag verkligen om den blå färgen.

    1. Roligt att du gillar det! Det verkar vara antingen hata eller älska det som gäller för det här lacket! ;)
      Det kostar bara 40 kr på H&M. Slå till innan det tar slut vet ja! ;)
