Beautiful & Enigmatic Holographic Nails – My Review of the Top 3 Holographic Nail Designs

Lead The Holographic Nail Trend

We all love sparkles, which is why holographic nails are one of the fastest growing fashion trends, and for good reason. They are shiny, colorful, and oh-so-pretty! One of the best ways to get them is to use holographic nail powder, but there are some exceptionally good holo polishes, too.

Holographic nail color is essentially regular nail powder with the addition of a special pigment. Similar to chrome nails, holographic polish is made up of microscopic reflective particles, which often includes real silver, that gives it an iridescent sheen.

After applying a base color or just a base layer to the nail, you can add a layer of the holographic pigment with a brush or a simple makeup applicator, brush off any extra pigment, and give them a gentle buff for that eye-catching, holographic look. Over the top of the powder, add a layer of clear sealing gel, and you and your nails will be ready to make a splash.

Whether you wear them short, long or in between, holographic nails create dramatic impact wherever you go, so, naturally, I had to try out this awesome finish!


1) ILNP MEGA Holographic Polish

What Makes It Great

Not only is this eco and vegan friendly, but the holographic effect is one of intensity, depth and color. It goes on smoothly, with nothing to mar the satin smooth surface. Once cured, the finish is one of the best I’ve seen, and boy, does it last! It stayed looking immaculate for over three weeks.

Where It Could Be Improved

The odor, once opened, is very strong, so I advise opening the windows, if possible.

9.5Expert Score
The Final Verdict

The intensity and depth with this holographic polish is very impressive for a home manicure. Definitely one for the manicure kit!

3) iMethod Holographic Chrome Nail Powder

What Makes It Great

Made from ultra fine salon-grade pigments and actual silver, this powder is easy to apply with a brush and looks amazing. Just swipe over a top coat and the result is an eye popping holographic sparkle. My nails looked very unusual, with everyone commenting on how great they were, and they kept looking good until the first chip showed up at about three weeks in.

Where It Could Be Improved

It took a good couple of dips to remove completely, but that doesn’t put me off at all.
