Mine came this morning, I've tried them out on c/pops but I'm not happy with them as they don't seem that 'holographic'.
They do sparkle slightly differently in bright light but look no different in normal daylight. I've taken a photo- the holos are the five pops in the foreground.

What do you think? Are they different enough from my normal to warrant keeping them?

Does anyone else use Hunkydory holos? R u happy with them?

Can anyone suggest some strong holos?

Thanks x

I see what you mean, they do look sort of similar to your others (which all look fab by the way!) I really love Irresistible Glitters, I have all of the holographic shades and all are really strong and eyecatching, I would definitely recommend them.

Have you thought about getting some spectraflair and mixing it in with normal glitter? it would not be 100% holographic but should give some amazing results x

I've only got the silver which I love as do ally clients. It's so much nicer than a normal silver.

I see what you mean about the others though. A bit disappointing really as I was going to get some others but might not bother now x

Irresistible Glitter imho is gorgeous - it's a lot finer than most glitters and the non-holographic glitter has almost a foil like shine, whereas the holographic glitter is really sparkly, especially in the day light :green:

Here they are on my nails (pinky is a Swarovski nail) will probably keep the silver as it's the most holo.

The other 5 are going back- as not happy with the Holo quality in these...

Just wondered what you use for your other glitters, they're all lovely colours. I use irresistible glitters, but they don't have some of the pretty colours that you have!! X

They're nearly all Martha Stewart's, (5 are generic neons)

Thank you, I've been looking at the Martha Stewart's but there's a few different kinds and wasn't sure what was the best type to go with! X

Which yellow? The one next to the purple is mica powder and the other is Martha stewart glitter. The beads were dipped onto shellac topcoat but not 'covered' in it
