Color Club’s Harp On It

Sadly, I missed getting China Glaze’s Sexagon - because I wasn’t really paying attention to makeup when that collection was released. I also missed getting China Glaze’s OMG, because everyone-but-everyone snapped that one up (and because while I had started building my makeup collection, I hadn’t really paid much attention to nail polish.) I snapped up two bottles of Harp On It as soon as the color was available!

Holographic polishes sometimes have a near-chalky feel to them, when applying (I don’t know how else to describe it - but there’s just the faintest tugging at the brush, as if you’re applying a slightly textured polish.) Some of the holographic-formulation polishes are a bit more fragile than normal nail polish. Harp On It did have that very faint “chalky” feel when I was applying it, but I didn’t have any problems with slubbing or leaving blank spots when I applied the polish to my nail. It dried to a reflective finish, and felt slick. The polish isn’t quite as durable as, say, China Glaze’s normal polishes; but it isn’t as prone to dings or scrapes as China Glaze’s OMG polishes, either.

Wearing a top coat with this polish mutes the holographic effects. That happens with just about every holographic polish I’ve tried, whether it’s a scattered holo like OPI’s Designer Series polishes or it’s a linear holo like the China Glaze OMG shades.
