I ‘m so behind on my swatches right now ! I know that Pixie reads from time to time, so do know that I am so sorry ! I work in tourism and we just went through a really busy period, so my posts have been brief. But when I’m writing a review, I want to have time to do the product justice; so it’s going to be quieter until june, and I’ll make the most of it to have a good catching up session
I ordered Pixie’s Linear Holographic Top Coat way back in March with Memory Splice. Dispatch took a little while, because Pixie doesn’t keep a big stock of pre-made polish. But I don’t mind that, I like the idea of the polish being made on order, and good things come to those who wait!
The formula is fairly thin, but personally I much prefer that ! I’m not a fan of gloopy polish. This does, however, mean that the holographic particles have a tendancy to sink and settle. But they mix up again really easily, and I actually enjoy doing that, watching it all swirl around and glitter…
This post, like most holo swatches I do, is going to be a bit picture heavy, bear with me ! I tested the top coat over 3 different polishes – Butter London’s Tea with the Queen (my favourite neutral ever), and two different polishes by French brand UNE – one dusty brown/plum and one blue/grey. Each time I used two coats.
This is what it looks like under a mixture of natural and incandescent lighting (so, a typical indoors swatch) :
