Hello lovelies! So, The Nail Arcade is midway through its week of being a pop-up UK indie polish e-shop, and I thought I’d show you the other gorgeous polish Rachel sent me to review having just been hit by a hefty customs charge myself I feel the timing is apt, I just hope she still has some polishes in stock by Friday which is my payday! They’re selling out fast.
I’ve never tried a polish by Serum No 5 before so I was super excited to try it. They come in two sizes: 9ml (Rachel is selling these at £5.55) or 16.7ml (£9). Fame is a beautiful holographic topcoat, so basically you can paint it over any colour to turn it into a holographic-effect polish you can use one coat for a more subtle holo effect, or build it up for stronger holographicness.
From thumb to pinkie, the polish is layered over: Barry M Black, Barry M Guava, Barbara Daly Violet Cream, Barry M Greenberry, Barry M Blue Grape. My personal favourites are over Violet Cream and Blue Grape – in person, the effect is just stunning and not colours you see in actual holo polishes. I like to wear it at two coats over my chosen colour.
Fame glides on easily, dries quickly and to quite a shiny finish. I would recommend a coat of topcoat to even out the overall appearance but in general it’s pretty good. I would just recommend you watch out for streaky patches, where in places the holo is stronger than in others, but this is easily fixed with a second coat. Overall, 9.5/10!
I think this is the perfect solution for having to fork out extra pounds for the holo effect, when for just £5.50 you can create any holo colour you like! What do you think? Head over to The Nail Arcade to browse the other gorgeous colours from Serum No 5, Smitten Polish, Cadillaquer, Crazy Polish Lady, Franken Frosting and Dance Legend Rachel is planning offers for this week so keep an eye out for news on The Nail Arcade Facebook Page!
