Holo swatch spam: Shaka, Pupa, Lady Venezia, Mi-ny

In this holo swatch spam you will meet 2 extreme holos and 2 subtle holos: Shaka Hologram Sky, Pupa 80, Lady Venezia 24, Mi-ny Violet 6!
They were a gift/swap from the super sweet Chiara from IlMio Beauty Case - thank you so much my friend!

Ok, prepare for the first one, get your sun glasses ready for Shaka Hologram Sky:
Shaka Hologram Sky is a beautiful and bright pastel blue holo with a super wicked strong effect. I experienced a little dragging in the second coat even over a ridge filler bc that works like a aqua bc, and it does cling to the nail and show imperfections – but GAHH, it’s so gorgeous <3 You see it in 2 coats without a top coat.

Now you can remove your sun glasses for the next two, the first it Pupa 80:
Pupa 80 is a very delicate and pale green holo, a bit khaki leaning I would say. Considering the light shade the holo effect is fairly strong and fairly visible in most light settings. The formula was rather easy to work with, I experienced just a little dragging (I did use a ridge filler base coat), and it clings to the nails showing imperfections, but not as bad as some other brands. This is two coats with a coat of Seche Vite.

The next is Lady Venezia 24:
Lady Venezia 24 is a pale grey-blue holo with a medium strong effect. The formula was nice to work with, and this is 2 coats without a top coat.

And for Mi-ny Violet 6 you definitely need you sun glasses again:
Mi-ny Violet 6 is a gorgeous lavender-pink also with a super wicked strong effect, seriously strong. I experienced a little dragging even over a ridge filler bc that works like a aqua bc and it does cling to the nail and show imperfections – but OMG, it’s beyond gorgeous <3 You see 2 coats without a top coat.
So this was two extreme holos and two subtle. I have a soft spot for the strong rainbows - what do you prefer?

  2. All Italian holos! :D I have two of them, the Shaka and the Lady Venezia. I have not bought a mi-ny yet since they are "already seen elsewhere" kind of colours, but they have a really strong effect, that's sure! I have a couple of Pupa, I love them, so cute ♡ my favourite is the violet one :)

      I agree, the Mi-ny is fabulous - and it seems their holos all have super strong rainbows just like the Shaka's :)

  5. For God's sake!!!! Look at those polishes!!!! My EYES! MY EYESSSS!!! From the four swatches, Shaka Hologram Sky did impress me a lot! Mi-ni Violet 6 is also beautiful, of course, ellegand and stylish, but I must admit that from all these polishes, Shaka is still shinning ... a vision to behold!

    =D

  6. Some really pretty holos! I think I'm with Aneta, I'm loving the first and last! Holo overload *drools* :-D

  7. I recommend aqua base coat for the two extreme holos, that might help with the dragging :)
    I love the first one the most :)

  9. I've resisted this Mi-ny polish for a very long time because I thought it was too similar to a Color Club holo, but it looks so pretty on your pictures!!! I don't like that it shows imperfections, but I'm going to buy it! I really love strong holos, but often I'm more comfortable wearing weaker holos. Awesome photos as usual!

    1. I think it has a stronger rainbow - so go for it :)
      You are right, that's the only down side in what I usually call first generation of holos - that's why I love the indie makers holos, even if their rainbows aren't as strong...

  11. *take sunglasses off* OMG - Hologram Sky and Mi-ny Violet are truly stunning. Not really my colours, but due to that effect they're a must have.

    Kind regards,

  16. Shaka Hologram Sky is so strong! My favourite here is Lady Venezia 24 :-)

    SvarSlet
  17. The Shaka is my fav one among those (and it is pretty much dupe of the mi-ny blue one, but shaka is no longer available so it's basically a HTF) :) But Lady Venezia is just too gorgeous to not be bought *____* well, I can go ahead with the other two too XD

    SvarSlet
  18. It's also my favorite - I'm so happy you got these beauties for me <3
