China Glaze DV8

This polish is dangerous. Why, you ask? Because I couldn’t stop staring at it while I was wearing it. I stared at it as I drove to and from work. I stared at it as I walked around work (sometimes crossing roads). I stared at it every time I was outside.

You guessed it, it’s a holo!
But not just any holo. This is China Glaze DV8:




Perfect. Such a totally and utterly perfect teal linear holo.

The formula, not so perfect. Two goopy coats which were streaky and hard to manage. But I got there in the end because I knew it would be worth it. And it so was.


Here’s another gratuitous holo shot:


You are delicious, DV8. Marry me?


I found this beauty in Adelaide a few months back when I was dusty hunting. I wandered into a little Asian nail salon on the off chance they’d have some cool polishes. I scored four China Glazes from the OMG! collection and one from the Kaleidescope collection. Now that was a good day’s shopping!


It’s inspired me to break out the Spectraflair and start creating some more Spectrafrankens!


Are you taking advantage of the beautiful weather to wear some holos?



P.S. Sorry for the not-as-frequent posting over the past few days. I’ve been super busy at work and am currently in Adelaide doing three days of intensive massage courses! Regular programming will resume soon!


  1. LOL i have several dangerous polishes too!
    Love this holo. It's freaking gorgeous!!!!

  2. Oh WOW! That is one AMAZING holo! I dont own any holos yet :( I hope to get to Essential Distrubtion before Christmas and get some Chemstry polishes. Would love to be wearing a red holo on Christmas day :P

  3. This is my favourite holo from the OMG collection! I am just about to do my nails and i looked outside and thought "It's HOLO weather!"

  4. Am so jealous of you and your find! This is stunning!

  5. Glad you all like it :D I think you'd have to be a weirdo to not find DV8 stunning!!!
