Nfu.Oh GS14 (black holo) and comparison Collistar 18 *video*

Dear Lacqueristas,

Believe me, I tried REALLY hard to capture the holographic hotness in this next polish. But I failed. Impossible. I don't know if it was my camera (Canon Powershot) or the lighting (direct sun, flash, bounced flash as well as artificial) but I didn't manage to even come close to how incredibly HOT this polish is. Have a look at my attempts:

You think this looks kinda pretteh? Imagine the holographic action x 10.

GS14 has a black base, not straight a jelly but too squeesy for a creme. I'd say 70% jelly quality. The base is packed, but absolutely PACKED with medium size holographic particles. It gives the finish a non-linear or shattered holographic look (as opposed to linear as in China Glaze OMG / Nfu.Oh 63 etc)
The semi translucency of the formula lets the holographic particles peek-a-boo through to catch the light on the surface.

I have heard many rumours about the supposed application difficulties with GS14. I din't wear this polish as a full mani yet, but for the swatch above I did notice some minor goopyness. Pretty shure though that had also to do with the act that I applied 2 thick coats instead of 3 thin ones.

Now on to the comparison. I own just one other polish that meets the discription black holo and that is Collistar 18. (Funny, that both brands don't actually name their creations but give them numbers)

The reason I painted only the thumb with Collistar is that the difference is too obvious to go through the hassle. Collistar's holo is much less dense and because the black base has no jelly quality to it, the holo particles are not peeking through. In real life this makes a huge difference. Nfu.Oh just isn't competition! I'm totally in awe with the overall quality of this brand... wow.

A lil video to show some more holo in motion
The funny part is that I'm holding the Collistar bottle, that looks pretty holo in the video. Just for the record; Nfu.Oh is like that... times 10. No joke. All fingers are Nfu.Oh GS14 but the thumb is painted with Collistar 18.

Here is the evidence: Nfu.Oh  GS14 in full sunlight, twinkling likea zillion crushes rainbow diamonds :-D

Well... what do you think? Is it pretteh, oh no?

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!
