For Your Nails Only Enchanted Holo Collection- Swatch & Review

Hello my lovely readers, I hope you are all having a good week so far. Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few days, my little girl has a viral infection and is very clingy so doing my nails hasn't been possible. I am hoping today's post will make up for that, I recently purchased For Your Nails Only's first collection of nail polishes. I have reviewed Sharon's amazing cuticle balm before so could not wait to get my hands on this beautiful collection called The Enchanted Holo collection, let's get straight into the swatches! 

The Enchanted Holo collection consists of 6 stunning polishes all containing lots of glitter and holographic goodness. All polishes are 5 free, animal and cruelty free as well as vegan friendly, there is a lovely array of colours to choose from and each one is very unique. 

When I received my parcel everything was wrapped up nice and secure, I love the pink and purple baggies that she uses and she kindly sent me one of her lip balm in the scent citrus. This has been really handy lately as the cold wind has been causing my lips to go very dry and split, so this was great to put the moisture back in and I seriously want to eat it when I have it on my lips. She also included a little fact sheet saying what is in the polishes and the best way to apply them, which I found was a great little touch.

The first polish in the collection is called Tantalizing Turquoise, this is a turquoise creme that leans more green that it does blue. You might even be able to count this one as a mint. This is opaque in 2 coats and it has small silver glitters, this does dry slightly textured but a good layer of top coat smooths that out. 

This next beauty is called Eminence, it is a deep royal purple jelly packed full of silver and blue glitter. To reach full opacity I did use 3 coats as it was slightly sheer cause of its jelly formula. It went on really easily and dried to a smooth finish. 

The next polish is called Funky Fuchsia, this is a neon fuchsia creme with lots of silver glitter and scattered holographic glitter. This is opaque in 2 coats and dries to a smooth finish, the formula was really easy to work with and could even be opaque in 1 thick coat if in a hurry. 

The royal blue in the collection is called Sassy Sapphire, this is a blue jelly with lots of silver and holographic glitter. It took 3 coats to become fully opaque and dried to a shiny smooth finish. I really do love how squishy this one looks, I would definitely wear a good base coat with it though as it could cause slight staining if worn without (late at night swatching wasn't the best idea.)

The second from last polish in this collection is called Precious Mulberry, this is a violet creme full of gold and holographic glitter. I loved this colour on my nails as it combines my two favourite colours pink and purple. This was opaque in 2 coats and dried to a smooth finish. 

Finally we have Equinox this is a black charcoal jelly with loads of holographic glitter, there is so much glitter packed in here that my camera couldn't handle the bottle shot. Even with its jelly formula this is fully opaque in 2 coats with an easy to work with formula. 

I am so happy that I picked up this collection from For Your Nails Only, all of the polishes had a great formula. Even though they are all crammed with glitter none of them caused me any issues when I was removing them, no need to sit there for 10 minutes scrubbing that glitter off. The only polish that caused slight staining for me was Sassy Sapphire, that was mostly my fault as I forgot to put my base coat on before applying the polish. 

You can buy this collection now from Sharon by contacting her through her Facebook page or Instagram. I will leave all of her social media links below, the collection can be purchased individually in both mini (5ml) and full size bottles (10ml). The mini's are £3 each and the full size is £5, if you wanted to purchase the entire collection together it is available now for £15 (5ml) and £24 (10ml) at the moment postage is only 80p. For now she is only shipping to the UK and accepting payment through Paypal. 


I am so happy to have this collection and can not wait to see what Sharon creates in the future. I have seen that she has some thermals in the pipe line, I will have swatches of them once they are available. As always feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below, are you thinking of picking up this collection? If so which one is your favourite? I will have some Spring nail art coming up in the next few days so keep your eyes peeled for that. I hope you are all having a fabulous nail day and I will chat to all you lovely people again soon.
