Indie Spotlight: The Devil Wears Polish A Nice Chianti & Holo Be Thy Name

*All products purchased by me. Unsolicited review*

*Warning* The following images may induce heavy breathing, a racing heartbeat, salivation, and the compulsive urge to immediately give all your money to the amazing woman who creates these polishes.  Seriously.  These beauties are not for the faint of heart!  I've been following The Devil Wears Polish on Facebook for a little bit now and finally made the budget work to try out a couple of her creations.  I think folks in Canada may have heard my squeals of delight when I opened my package!  Tami is the master of the linear holo, people.  If her polishes don't make your eyeballs sweat a little bit then there is quite possibly something wrong with you.  I will be saving my pennies from now on for these beauties because I must have all the holos!

Ok, now that I'm (mostly) finished gushing...let's get down to the pics!

Up first we have A Nice Chianti (I love her names as well!).  ANC is a deep red wine polish with a strong linear holographic effect.  I'm not sure I can emphasize enough how fabulous this polish is!  The color is perfect for Fall; that plum-y magenta just sings of spiced apple cider, leaves crunching underfoot, and a nip in the air!

Opaque in 2 coats (shown here), ANC was smooth to apply.  I did use a coat of Seche Vite on this, but only for durability, as the shine was evident pre-top coat.  There was no dulling of the holographic effect with top coat.

*sigh* The macro of this makes me ridiculously happy.  All that rainbow-y goodness bouncing everywhere! 

If A Nice Chianti doesn't convince you to try The Devil Wears Polish, the second polish I have for you may change your mind.

Holo Be Thy Name...I think we need a moment of silence to truly appreciate this work of art.

Ok, now I'm gonna yammer on about it!  Although there are barely words to describe this one.  A silvery slate grey, HBTN is so full of linear holographic goodness it makes your nails look 3D!  And yes, I realize that your nails are, in fact, already 3D but I hope you know what I mean by that!  Those rainbows just jump off the nails and grab your eyes with a death grip...I could not keep my eyes off of my nails the whole time I wore it.  Incidentally, if you plan on driving a lot, you might want to steer clear of this one ;)

As with A Nice Chianti, the formula for HBTN was smooth and opaque in 2 coats.  I did wear one coat of Seche Vite with this one as well and, obviously, the holographic effect was not dulled at all. 

And I missed out on the sunlight for ANC, but I managed to snag one for you guys of HBTN.  Holy-mother-of-all-holos, Batman!  Please don't wait on this one.  You'll regret it forever if you miss out!

Both of these polishes, along with a cadre of others, are currently available on The Devil Wears Polish's Storenvy site.  Mini bottles retail for $4-5 and full size are $8-11.50.  Tami is currently updating her Aspiring Anarchist collection, an LE set of glitter toppers and glitter crellies/jellies inspired by early punk bands, and has indicated that she'll be creating and stocking more holos in the near future.  As she's so good at it, I suggest you follow her on Facebook because you won't want to miss any updates!

Thanks so much for reading!

  2. Thank you for the awesome review Natalie! And those GORGEOUS swatches!

    1. You are SO welcome! You ever need a swatcher, I'll do backflips for the job! lol Thanks so much, Tami...these are so beautiful!

  3. LOL!!! Those do make my eyeballs sweat. I love that. hahahaha Holy Toledo those are awesome! I've gotta tell you that I usually heavily dislike long nails but your nails are so uniform despite the them! When my nails grow, they start to get pointy which is the weirdest thing so I never let them grow much.

    1. Thanks, Cynthia! I'm a reformed nail biter so I love to hear when people say they look nice :)
