Adorned Nails: TheFaceShop Face It Hologram BK901



Actually, the full name is: TheFaceShop Face It Repair Nails Hologram BK901. As if things weren't complicated enough, there exists another TheFaceShop polish with the same number - TheFaceShop Face It Nails BK901 (it's a black-based polish, by the way). Gee, why so confusing, TheFaceShop?!

Strangely, this holo nail polish falls under the Repair Nails range. I believe the Repair Nails range consists of three or four nail care products and three holo polishes: a grey, a pink and an orange. I really, really wanted to get the orange one but unfortunately, it was already sold out in all the TheFaceShop shops (oh, that sounded funny!) that I walked into in Kuala Lumpur. I wasn't keen on the light pink one as I already had something similar at home - Make Up Store Britta.

So, the grey one it was!


There's not much to say about this grey holo, really. I did three coats on top of GOSH Fix Base Coat. This base coat helped somewhat to prevent bald spots which often occurs when applying holo polishes.


Though not very expensive, the price of this holo polish was about 2.5 times the price of a regular Face It polish. I paid the equivalent of around €6 for this 11ml bottle.

With holo polishes, it's always better to let the photos speak for themselves. All were of course taken in sunshine.

ooooohhh, great holo! Could you compare this with Color Club Revvvolution? Just thinking if I need to run to the store...

Awesome! Love holo polishes. The changing colors in the sun, it's so intriguing. Have a great day, Nicole x

Beautiful! How about the removal? (I have glitter polishes which are a nightmare to remove, so I wondered if it was the case with holo polishes as well)

Gotta love holo polishes. The orange one would have been cool and unique too. "KTee"xx

Hi, Eugenia! I haven't got Revvvolution in my stash, I'm afraid, but I've had a look at some photos on the net and it appears that Revvvolution is a much darker grey than this BK901. :)

@rockornot
We all love holos, don't we? :)

@Nikki
Deze lak is mijn eerste grijze holo. Trouwens, ik hoop dat je die zilveren holo van KOH al hebt - Platinum Silver. Groetjes! :)

@Nicole
Holo polishes are fascinating to look at. I don't think I will ever get tired of them. Do have a lovely week, my dear! :)

@Carine
Hi, Carine! It wasn't that much of a hassle removing this holo, certainly nothing like the super nasty glitter polishes. :)

@KTee
Urgh, it's such a pity I couldn't get hold of that orange. I think that will haunt me for a long time still. :(

Can never get enough holos and the black/gray ones seem to be a favorite of mine. This one is gorgeous :)

Oh yes, holos are so fascintating, aren't they? I love, love them too! :)
