Subtle Holo

I don't think it's any secret how much I love holo polishes. I go bananas for them. I'm always on the hunt for new ones to add to my stash, but I was surprised to find one at Rite Aid! I had been eyeing CQ- Gem Green in the store but hadn't purchased it until someone posted pictures of it on MUA and pushed me over the edge. It looks pretty unassuming in the icky Rite Aid lighting, which is part of the reason I hadn't gotten it until I saw pictures online. Let's see if my pictures push you over the edge too :-P It's a pale green subtle holo and I don't have anything like it! Here it is, CQ- Gem Green


You can click to enlarge all the pictures to check out the holo out. As you can see, the holo shows up in sunlight and inside, but not so much in the shade. I didn't expect to like this as much as I did, but ooooh is it pretty in person. The sunlight picture is pretty accurate color-wise. I'm thinking this was a few dollars well spent! The holo in this is scattered, which I actually prefer more than linear holos. Which type of holo is your favorite? And what do you think of Gem Green? I always feel like I'm typing the name wrong, that it should be Green Gem; that seems to just have a better flow to it, in my head at least haha.


  1. oh, i never noticed the holo in the polish at all either - until now! definitely have to go check it out soon :)

  2. That's a holo wow I never notice it. I gotta go pick it up soon.

  3. OMG, same! I LOOVE holos. They look so pretty in pictures. Its like..A RAINBOW *-*
    I don't see that much holoness in it either but tis a nice green!

  4. I had no idea this was a holo! I do prefer more linear holos, but this looks very nice.
