This isn’t a true “Dupe” post, or a look for less post … because its very apparent from the bottles that these 3 polishes are different. But I did notice that I have a lot of black or almost black holographic polishes in my collection! So I decided to do a “Battle” style post, where I show you guys 3 different polishes that fall into a similar category to see which one you and I like the best.
First up … Black holographic polishes. A black holo was always something I wanted ever since I saw watches of the original OPI “My Private Jet”. So when Color Club and Zoya each came out with black holographic polishes around the same time I didn’t hesitate to pick up both. And then when I was organizing my stash I noticed that I had a holographic from Color Club already that was similar to my new holographic. I know there are a lot more black holographic polishes in the world, but these are the ones that I have right now …
So how do all these black holographics compare? Keep reading to find out! And to see which “style” or “type” of holographic you like the best …
First lets take a look at each individual polish!
Zoya “Storm” is a black scattered holographic! This is definitely a true black and the scattered holographic pieces look like stars in the night sky. It almost looks gritty when you aren’t in bright lights to catchall the rainbow coming off your nails! Just looking at this swatch makes me want to put it on again. Its completely opaque in 2 coats, dries fast, and has a glossy finish even without a top coat.
Color Club “Beyond” is a dark charcoal grey linear holographic. The difference between a scattered holographic and a linear holographic is that the linear one creates a rainbow in a line formation and the scattered (like Storm above) is just random all over the nail. The formula on this polish is fantastic! Opaque in 1 coat and super fast drying. I absolutely love it and it gives a strong full rainbow spectrum.
Color Club “Revvvolution” is also a dark charcoal grey linear holographic. The difference between this one and Beyond, above, is that this isn’t as strong of a holo. However, my picture above doesn’t do this polish justice! The pictures below capture it much better. Its opaque in just 1 coat, and dries really quickly!
And now on to the comparison!
You can tell here the difference between a scattered and linear holographic. Also, you can tell here that the Color Club polish isn’t as dark as you might think from looking at it in the bottle. It isn’t a true black holographic, but still a really pretty dark grey!
Next to Revvvolution, Beyond looks darker! Its funny how that works sometimes. Revvvolution is holographic, but looks whimpy next to Beyond. However, Revvvolution has a softness that is really nice. It isn’t as harsh on your nails as a black or dark charcoal, and may be a little more wearable.
I guess this post is just to show that there can be a wide spectrum of holographics out there, even though they all fit under the same finish. And even though the base colors are all similar they all have their own beauty! I can’t pick one over the other because I like them all for different reasons. They’re all beautiful in their own way.
Which one is your favorite? Do you have any of these? What is your favorite black or dark grey holographic?
