Review: Beauty Bigbang Holo Nail Powder

Some items in this post were provided for review.

Hi everyone!

I have shared a few products from Beauty Bigbang with you recently, including a few different loose nail powders – chrome, holographic or flakies. Most recently I showed you this gorgeous holo flakie powder. Today, I have a fine holographic powder that gives a beautiful linear holographic effect to share with you.

Painted Fingertips | Beauty Bigbang Holographic Nail PowderAt first, I tried a black base for this holo powder, thinking it might make the powder appear more vibrant. This was the result:

However, I did end up with a little of the black polish sticking out near my cuticles which looks a little odd. I should have been more careful to avoid that – leaving a bigger gap near my cuticle with this black polish could have worked.

With some of the flakie powders, I have had success using Yellow Stopper as a base to stick the powder to. While this works with this powder as well, I found it difficult to get a good, even finish. My bottle of Yellow Stopper is getting old and that may be why – I would end up with slightly uneven surfaces; the powder also didn’t stick as well to the Yellow Stopper and I found I would need about 3 layers to get a look I liked. So, I decided to use gel instead with this powder.

As you can see, while there is a little white peeking out, it isn’t nearly as jarring as the black was. A silver base would probably be even better.
