I can't say if this is the case for every brand (I will most definitely put it to the test) but it's definitely true of this Layla Hologram Effect. I was so impressed the linear holo effect shows indoors under my lamp, hmmm, why didn't I think of that before? It makes sense!
I tried adding some sort of nail art over it but gave up after a while and just added some silver chevron french tips. I didn't like the overall look as the chevrons blend in too much with the blue polish so I removed the whole mani this morning. Sometimes a pretty polish really does need to be left alone.
