Gina Tricot Holographic Green - swatches and review

Finally! Here it is again! Skimmerskuggan's Holo Friday! :D
Today I'm showing you a green holo polish from Gina Tricot which I got on their sale for only 10 SEK!! :D That's about $1.50 or £1. :D
It's quite a weak holo effect but it's still a holo ;)


Type of polish: Holographic.

Colour: A pale green, almost a grey/silver green, with a weak holographic effect.

Opacity: Excellent! This is ONE COAT! :D

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Very good! Perfect texture! It's very easy to apply! Like melted butter ;)

Brush: Very good! Thick, firm and very easy to work with!

Shine: Shiny on its own. No top coat in these pictures. I didn't want to chance getting the holo effect weaker which sometimes happens when you apply a top coat on a holo polish.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Accurate. What you see is what you get ;) I'm hoping the holo effect might be a bit stronger in direct sunlight. Will post it again if so ;)

Grade: 4/5 :)

Even though this is a weak holo I still like it! The base colour is pretty with it's hint to grey and silver and the formula is sooo great! I mean how often is a holo a one coater...?!? ;)

How do you like this one ladies? :)
Have you tried Gina's holos?


  1. Ganska snyggt fastän det är lite svag holo :)

    1. För det priset gör det inget att det är svagt holo ;)

    1. Ja, faktiskt!
      Blev förvånad själv.
      10 spänn liksom :D

  3. Du är ju lika illa ute som jag idag med ett lack som knappt visar holoskimret. ;D

    Kul att det var ett billigt och bra lack alla fall. Det kan jag inte säga om mitt.

    1. Ja, snålt med holo i lacket och dystert väder...
      Men billigt och en one coater i alla fall ;)

  4. Awwww this suits you so well - this is from your recent polish haul???

    1. Thanks! :D
      Yes! It's from my latest haul!
      You said you were most curious on Gina so I did this one for you darling! :D
      Glad you enjoyed it!! ;D

  5. Faktiska väldigt fint holo lack för att vara billigt :D Fin effekt och ser riktigt trevligt ut också!

    Förresten jag har precis gjort om min design och har tänkt skapa en länk lista med andra nagel nördar och skönhetsbloggare då jag älskar att hitta nya bloggar och att tipsa andra så jag undrar om du vill göra ett länkbyte? ^^,
