Bobbi Brown is giving us old school glam with her Holiday 2013 “Old Hollywood” collection. As I’ve said before, this season’s nail polish trends are going the more traditional route with metallics and reds dominating the scene.

Clearly Bobbi got the memo and then some as she’s giving us holographic glitter realness with her new shade, Chrome. Who ever thought you’d see the words Bobbi Brown and holographic glitter in the same sentence? I mean, what??

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – Glitter Gal Lizard Belly Green Holographic Nail Polish

glitter gal lizard belly green linear holographic nail polish 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

Untried Day #121 – What has been my recurring nail polish wish ever since ALU began??? Long time readers may remember my pleading here, here and here for an EMERALD GREEN HOLO. While my wish hasn’t exactly been realized, Glitter Gal has come as close as I’ve found.

Glitter Gal Lizard Belly isn’t emerald green but it’s a true holographic nail polish, not just holo glitter. It may not be from an easily accessible brand but at least we can get our hands on it in the US. So while it may not be a total dream come true it still makes my heart flutter.

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – Nails Inc Porchester Square & Electric Lane Holographic Top Coat

nails inc porchester square electric lane holographic nail polish top coat 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

Given my love for all things sparkly I couldn’t resist popping open Nails Inc Crystal Colour in Porchester Square. I’m sure there are some who feel an embellished cap is a waste of money but I love having bottles I’m proud to display. It’s one of the reasons I adore the shape of Lippmann’s bottle. The design is so high end and vanity table worthy that you just want to show it off.

Since I’m leaving for Cosmoprof Saturday morning I’m already in Vegas mode so I blinged out Porchester Square with Nails Inc Electric Lane Holographic Top Coat. Check it out!

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – Ozotic 513 Holographic Purple

ozotic pro 513 purple holographic nail polish linear holo 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

This weekend has left me drained but in a good way. Yesterday I had the privilege of attending an amazing event, the Veggie U Food & Wine Celebration, and today I spent a good part of the day outside helping the boyfriend clean and seal our deck in preparation for our Un-Xmas in July party next weekend. Can you say Christmas Ale on tap in the keg fridge? I never knew wielding a deck brush could leave me feeling so spent.

Anyway, since I knew I would be outside on a farm yesterday, I decided to wear a polish that would play with the sun. You know what that means… it’s holo time! I recently received a package from piCture pOlish with some Ozotic Pro nail polishes, an Australian brand I’ve been wanting to try for years now. One of the three shades was Ozotic 513, a purple holo, and I couldn’t wait for the right moment to don it. Yesterday was it!

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – Glitter Gal Blue Holographic Nail Polish

glitter gal blue holographic nail polish linear holographic prismatic 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

A few days ago, Melissa from The Daily Nail was asking about “linear holographic nail polish” on Twitter. I had to scratch my head as I’ve never heard of holos being referred to as “linear.” Who comes up with this stuff?

Apparently “linear” refers to holographic polishes that create intense rainbows or a prismatic effect on the nail as compared to holographic glitter that flashes multiple colors but doesn’t create a rainbow pattern. This style of holo nail polish is becoming more and more rare as whispers of holo pigment price increases are heard throughout the nail industry.

More recently a Twitter discussion of foreign nail polish brands led me to my bin of non-US untrieds, specifically the Australian Glitter Gal Blue holo nail polish.
