When I found it in the stand in my local pharmacy, it seemed very blah, nothing special. If I hadn't seen photos online of it, I definitely wouldn't have purchased it. I'd say that happens a lot of people, you don't want to waste money on something that doesn't seem that impressive.
This is actually my second time putting it on, my photos first time around were useless. Application is streaky and can be a bit disheartening the first time you apply it but once you apply a few coats, the holo payoff is immense. These photos are 3 coaters but I had to apply 4 coats to get the effect the first time I tried it.
(Excuse the messy application/cuticles)
I am really happy to have it in my collection. It is really impressive on the nail and a true holo which I belive is always a great addition to any collection!
As an aside, I finally got my hands on Rainbow!! Post on it coming up soon, just trying to get a few more photos!
