Holo glitter heaven with FUN's 1st Anniversary Collection

Ohhhh yeahhh time to get dirt nasty. And by dirt I mean glitter and by nasty I mean holo-ey. F.U.N. Lacquer decided to give us all seizures of the holo sensing brain neurons for their first anniversary as an indie polish, and the creator Yuin was nice enough to let me play with her magical creations! Everyone knows I love holo, and glitter, and when you combine the two you essentially get knocked out of reality and exhibit symptoms of what the APA might consider adding to the DSM-VI: Holo Glitter Dissociation Disorder (HGDD cause psychologists love acronyms). You heard it here first!

FUN Lacquer will be restocking this limited edition and exclusive collection TOMORROW, Thursday, October 9th at 11:30AM EST / 11:30PM SGT. Get 'em quick cause I am quite positive that all those who bear witness to the entrancing effects of these polishes will flood the servers and raid the inventory within minutes of launch.

Oh ma gawd, I know you're dying already to get to the individual polish shots, but first let me tantilize your senses with some collection pics.

Before we dive right in, here's a quick synopsis of what the heck is actually in these polishes, why it seems there are two of the same colours, and what the (H) beside the polish name means.

As pictured below, for the three core coloured polishes, each has a holo glitter version, meaning it is composed of solely holo glitter pieces in a clear jelly. These are the polishes without the (H), because essentially BOTH versions are composed of the same holo glitter, but the (H) versions have added scattered tiny holo particles (essentially a holo jelly) in the mix. It really depends on the look you're going for. The non-(H) versions have a stronger colour impact because they are less clouded by the holo jelly, but the (H) versions give off a completely different slick rainbow effect under the right light angles. Whatever you're in the mood for, these holo glitters are bound to give you HGDD.

Swatch conditions overview:
First up is Pay Day (H), which is a re-release of Pay Day sans holo jelly. This polish is different from the rest in the collection because it is composed of tiny silver foil flakies that together form a foil-like film on your nails. Add some holo jelly to the mix and BAM SHINY DISCO BALLS.

I really have nothing to say different about any of these polishes, they are all equally excellent in formula and application, I just love them ALL.

Next I've got Million Dollar Dream (H), an intense gold holo glitter in a holo jelly. Depending on the lighting the gold becomes more intense, so that's why there's some colour variation in the photos.

Next up, it's holo-glitter-only counterpart, Million Dollar Dream (no holo). To me the colour gold is a bit more intense than the (H) version because it's not clouded by holo jelly.

Here's Prima Donna (H). I don't think this colour pink looks particularily great on my skin tone (kind of makes my skin colour look weird, but it's still damn pretty.) It's a soft or baby/pastel pink holo glitter with scattered holo jelly.

Now for Prima Donna's sans-holo-jelly version! This pink does translates a touch more intense/saturated in this polish than the holo version. Pretty much wish I had this as a kid and I would have slathered my Barbie dream home in it.

And my fav colour for last of the trio of H-and-no-H versions, this is Secret (H). Pretty much the definition of everything a turquoise holo should be.

And evidently, its turquoise sans-holo-jelly counterpart, partner in teal crimes everywhere, Secret. My favourite in the collection cause it's just SO INTENSE. AND I LOVE LOVE TEAL.

  1. Gourgeous indeed!! I think it's funny, you're so pale, I think all colours go realley well on your skin tone, but don't think they would look so great on mine (I'm light as well but with an yellow undertone you know...) I wish I could use the Secret cause it's gourgeous! but not really my type of colour.... I could never use million dollar though -.-"
