Prevail Concrete Jungle Holographic

When I first spotted this polish in the dimly-lit Prevail section of Duane Reade, I thought I saw a peek of holo in the bottle.  Outside in the sunlight it was clear that my premonition was correct!  I was excited because I’ve never found a holographic nail polish in a drug store before.  Say hello to Concrete Jungle.

Under low light and indoors this polish looks like a dusty lavender/pink.  (That helped make it a bit more office-friendly for me.)  Although the formula was thin, it was super-smooth and easy to apply without being runny.  Here I used 3 coats.

All it needs is a bit of light for the linear holo to really pop!  I believe this is called a linear holographic due to the bands of refraction.

I kept this on for several days and couldn’t stop admiring my nails!  It was so chameleon-light in different types of light.  My only qualm is that it chipped on the first day, even with a top coat.  I wonder if layering it on top of another color would help it wear longer?
