Jica Northern Lights Top Coats

Sunday, December 14, 2014
Tis the season to be...sparkly! I do love a bit of glitter/sparkle at this time of the year however most glittery nail polishes or topcoats can contain very chunky glitter that takes forever and a tonne of nail polish remover to get off the nails. I was kindly sent a couple of holographic nail polish topcoats that may solve this problem!

I have the *INN Jica Northern Lights OTD Holographic Top Coats in Gold and Silver (£9.35 each) which look so pretty! I haven't tried any nail polish before claiming to be 'holographic' so I was excited to try these two polishes.

I have used the topcoats over 'Parka Perfect' by Essie. I alternated the silver and gold topcoats on each nail. The topcoats apply quickly, easily and evenly for the most part - the silver shade is more even than the gold. You do need to shake them well before use as the shimmer settles at the bottom of the bottles. 

The topcoats dried fairly quickly on my nails although not as quickly as they claim; they were dry fully in a few minutes although I did use a thicker layer to increase the shimmer on the nails. The silver shade is just gorgeous, there is a lot of shimmer but it is very fine and catches the light beautifully! I don't love the gold topcoat as much as the shimmer seems to be a little sparse on my nails and I'm not a massive fan of gold but both topcoats are very pretty and of course, very festive! 

Overall, I am happy with the topcoats; you get a lot of product for the price, the shimmer is gorgeous and the topcoats look so nice over all of the nail polishes I have tried them with. Additionally as the shimmer is fine, it doesn't take a year and a half to remove!

Have you tried the INN Jica Northern Lights Topcoats? What are your go-to festive nail looks?
