NOTD - Make Up Store Siw (blue holographic)

This is definitely one of the most holographic polishes I own, and thankfully the Make Up Store has a lovely selection of holos that are not limited edition :D must get back there and pick up some more, they are quite pricey at £11 but I just love the holo on these so much, and when used with Make Up Store's Aqua Fix Base Coat they really do last better than other holos. 

 Base Coat: Make Up Store Aqua Fix Base Coat 1 coat
Make Up Store Siw 3 coats 

I didn't apply a top coat over these, as I'd previously found it can dull the holo effect of the polish :( one major plus with holos like this is how quick they dry, and you can literally watch the holo effect intensify as the polish dries, which never stops being fun :D

Using the Aqua Base coat really helps the holo polish go on smoothly, I'm pretty sure GOSH do a similar base coat for their holo polish but alas I've not been able to find it in any of the Superdrugs I've been too

 Angled pic to show awesome holo effect :D

As stunning as these are on their own I was eager to try crackle polish on top to see what effect it would have over holos, and I have to stay I was very pleased with the result :D post to follow.
One thing I love about Make Up Store Polishes, is the fact that they are all named after staff members at their stores :D think that's a nice touch.

Make Up Store is a Swedish brand, I think they have two stores in London, one in Westfield Shopping Centre and one in Carnaby St in Central London.


  1. I've only recently learned about holo polishes and I am going crazy over your blue nails! I bet you just couldn't stop looking at your nails (I know I sure wouldn't)!

  2. I LOOOOVE holographic nail polishes, my sister owns couple, and I always ask her to polish my nails with them<33
    And that IS one of the most holographic nail polishes I've seen *w*

  3. I do love this polish, and I only recently found holos also :D they are so fun!! :D and indeed its very hard to stop looking at your nails, the effect is just too cool :D
