If you guys flip through my blog in the last few months, it would be very apparent that I’m slightly addicted to holographic nail polishes at the moment. I want to say its just a phase, but I have a feeling this is going to be a life long addiction. I had a few holographic polishes before the Zoya Ornate collection and the Color Club Halo Hues but none that I ever truly appreciated. After the Halo Hues, I had to try out my old holographics and purchase a few new ones.
I first saw this polish on my friend Radha, The Polish Owl, and knew I had to have it! I was scared the orangey gold tone would clash horribly with my skin. Well, it definitely does clash with my skin and kind of looks like crap on me but I don’t care! I am so in love with this polish that I’ll suffer through the cringes!
Jade “Mystic Gold” is a brassy gold holographic and its absolutely stunning. Its one of the strongest holos that I have in my collection! The gold tone really doesn’t do my skin tone any justice. I think it would look much better on someone with a darker skin tone. The formula is just ok. It took 2 coats to reach full opacity and was a breeze to apply. The dry time was a little slower than I thought it would be, but nothing so slow as to really complain about. I’m just spoiled with the fast dry time of the Halo Hues.
