Zoya Electra Nail Lacquer

Zoya Electra Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “micro-fine diamond holographic glitter mixed with large silver holographic bar tinsel in a clear base.” It has holographic micro-glitter along with holographic bar glitter, which looks like silver tinsel on the nail, until you angle it just right or the light catches it, and then you get the holographic effect. I don’t have anything like this myself, and all I could think of was Zoya’s holiday collection last year, which featured pink, green, and blue horizontal bar glitter polishes.
