Ahh Holo Taco, my love. Holo Taco is one of those brands that if I had unlimited money, I would throw it at SimplyNailogical and buy every thing she releases. But alas, I don’t have unlimited funds – much because I buy so much other nail polish, okay. I’ll know I have made it when I can press ‘Add to Cart’ with no hesitancy, the dream.
Anyways, every so often, a new Holo Taco releases catches my eye so much that I find a way to squeeze it on into my polish purchasing for that month, and this release was one of them. This is the Holo Taco ‘Electric’ Holos collection. It features 5 linear holographic shades in bright and fun and unique shades, and there was just a bright lime green so I had to have it. It’s available on the Holo Taco website as a bundle or you can purchase the individual shades. Let’s get right into the swatches, shall we?
Diving right in, we have ‘Hot-Wire Pink’. This is the bright fuchsia pink linear holographic shade.
These definitely have a thicker formula and feel to me, but not in a bad way! It just made them super smooth, and easy to control on the nails – no cuticle flooding if you use thicker coats here – and super opaque. As you can see in the live swatch, this is basically opaque in just 1 coat. I did 2 as it’s my routine for every swatch, but it didn’t need it. Super gorgeous and a great start to the collection!
And of course, I’ve included live swatch videos from my Instagram, so you can see all of the sparkly holographic goodness in action.
Up next we have ‘Full Charge’. This is a bright lime green linear holographic, and it was the main shade of the bundle that just pulled me in, and gave me a mighty need for the whole bundle. As mentioned above, it’s a thicker formula, and an easy 2 coats here. When I say thicker, I never noticed it skipping on the nails either, just super smooth and easy to paint on!
‘Circuit Breaker’ is the traditional silver linear holographic that’s a basic in every holographic collection. Again, a lovely and smooth formula and 2 easy coats here. If you don’t have one yet in your stash, this is a great choice!
Continuing right along, ‘Hydropower’ is a bright aqua blue linear holographic. And you know the drill, an easy two coats here! No complaints!
Last up is ‘Electrostatic’. And it’s just a beauty!
This is a black linear holographic that I’ve been wanting to add to my collection. This one was a -touch- thinner of a formula, just in that the polish ran down the brush more so I made sure to wipe it off more before applying. Still an easy 2 coats here! Perfect for spooky season coming up.
And that’s the collection! Absolutely beautiful and some great holographic shades to add to your collection. Listen, if you’re deep in the indie polish world, these might not be too exciting and maybe you have stronger holographics around. But I mainly review mainstream polishes, and we’re just looking at these on their own. AND I LIKE THEM, OKAY. We’re never here to shame what’s exciting to some people, and in the end, it’s all your own decision of which polishes to purchase! I’m just here to show what they look like and how they apply (and every so often say something’s pretty). Alright I’m done, just look at the sparkle.
