Pink Wednesday - Make Up Store Britta

Happy Wednesday everyone! And a very happy birthday to my amazing and wonderful husband Rémy today as well!!!

Today I have for you one of the most awesome holos in my collection, Make Up Store Britta. Britta was sent to me by my lovely friend Radha in Singapore, thanks so much for this gem girl <3 Make Up Store is a company that has stores all over the world, but I believe there is only one in the US so these polishes are a bit hard to come by. I know the store in Denver will take phone orders, or if you are lucky enough to live in a country where there are several stores you can probably access these polishes more easily than the rest of us.

Britta is an amazing pink holo. Make Up Store holos have your typical holo formula - they require an aqua base, they dry matte and they chip pretty quickly. But these kinds of holos tend to give the best holo effect out of any polish so I am more than willing to deal with these issues. The following pics are two coats of Britta on top of one coat of the Jessica Hologram Chic aqua base and no top coat. Enjoy!








What do you think? Are you a fan of holographic polishes? Which are your favorite holos?

    1. Isn't it so holo-y?! I love this one! I'm not much of a pink person myself, but I always seem to acquire so many pinks which is why I do Pink Wednesdays - I have to force myself to use them lol.

    1. That's a bummer!! Do you guys have Ulta there? They are going to start carrying the Layla ones which are similar to the MUS ones.

  5. Beautiful! I love holos. For the longest time GOSH Holographic was my favorite, then it was Jessica Disco Diva. At the moment, I'm really liking the Layla holos.

    1. As do I! I love Gosh holo and the Jessica one as well. The one that has really stolen my heart lately is Layla Flash black, I think it may just be the most amazing holo I own. So glad to see more companies coming out with holos lately!
