First up is an out-of-this world holographic, “She’s the Doctor”.

She’s the Doctor is a dark blue linear holographic that is a nod to the Doctor’s favorite mode of transportation.

This holographic is beautiful inside, but blinding in the sun! She’s the Doctor was opaque in two coats of polish. The formula was fantastic and I had no problems with staining with this shade.

Oh Brilliant is a holographic multichrome that shifts between purple, pink, and gold with green around the edges. This shade was opaque in two coats of polish for me.

I can even spot a rose-gold toned shift in this beautiful shade!

I used three coats of polish for my swatches. This shade starts out sheer on the first coat but does build up really nicely. The flakies spread very easily and evenly across the nail.
