I was recently lucky enough to participate in an international nail polish swap. This was my first ever swap and I was not disappointed. I received six holographic nail polishes by Hema. The swapper said this is the complete line of their holographic polish. Here's the swatches with a macro and then I'll tell you more about this swap.
Holographic Copper (nude):
Holographic Pink (my favorite):
Holographic Blue (wait...this is my favorite):
These polishes are beautiful. I love them. I really enjoy the look of linear holos. Some are more holo than others. Purple and Bordeaux were more of a scattered holographic but still beautiful. I really can't decide which are my favorite and I can't really say anything but positive things about them. Can you believe these are around $4.50 when converted to American dollars? I paid $12 for a dupe of Copper and Bordeaux from an indie!
Hema is a store in the Netherlands that is described as a discount dime store by Wikipedia. So, like the equivalent of a Dollar General, is what I'm assuming. I wish one of our dollar stores in America would come out with a line of holographic polishes. Could you imagine? I'd wipe out the stock in our tristate area if that happened. I can dream!
In case your interested, my swap partner also sent some goodies for me to munch on from the Netherlands. She sent stroopwafels. Mmmmm. Stroooopwafels. I used to gorge myself with those in college, when my friend's mom would send them in care packages. She sent some fruit flavored cookies and chewy nerd type things. Unfortunately, I opened the box of goodies in front of my kids and they ate most of it. Next time, I'll open a goodie box after they go to bed!
