Get Outta My Space

The China Glaze Hologlams have arrived!! I was excited until I broke my no buy (5 successful weeks) and tried them for myself.  On the salon swatches, the Hologlams are beautiful!  It shows a strong holographic property on all of the colors making it hard to decide what do get.  On the nail in normal lighting, these are a slight disappointment.  The holo is very subtle.  Get Outta My Space is a lavender/pink that looks like a chrome unless I'm outdoors. The formula is thick and I didn't experience any dragging.  I'm using two coats over bare nails.  I tried using a base coat, but the polish bubbled and I retried without base coat.  I don't have an aqua base coat and my Seche Vite base coat has a stuck cap and refuses to open.  I stamped lightning bolts over with Sci-Fly By to give it more demension. The stamp is not noticeable in person, but it creates more of a holo illusion indoors.   Sealed everything with Seche Vite top coat.

All pictures shown were taken outdoors in natural sunlight.

I got mine from Trade Secrets and paid $7/bottle.  I was expecting $14 like everyone online was mentioning.  For the price, I can't complain too much.  Just wishing Get Outta My Space was more in your face holo and less chrome looking. 


  1. Pretty but I think the older collection had a bit more of a holo effect :)

    1. Yeah. For $14, they would have stayed at the salon.
