UP Colors Holografico Verde 360

Hi guys! Today I have a gorgeous holo to share with you - yay holos! This past Saturday it was almost 60 degrees out and sunny and I was feeling very summery and needed my nails to match that (crazy, since today it was like 20 and snowy...ahh, Kansas weather) so I picked out a lovely polish from new-to-me brand UP Colors. Verde 360 is a scattered aqua/blue-green holo. While I dunno if  this polish is actually all that summery, there is nothing quite like a holo mani in full sun to cheer me up, and this one sure was pretty! Take a look:

 On my nails:
1 coat Nfu Aqua Base
2 coats UP Colors Verde 360

Such a pretty color! I confess I have no idea if the aqua base was necessary or not, but since I have the thing I like to use it under holos, it just seems to make sense, haha. Probably was good though, because I always find that holos that exhibit traditional holo behavior (like terrible wear, weakening under topcoat, streaky application, etc) benefit from aqua bases, and while I didn't bother to test it under topcoat either, it had awful wear within a few hours, alas, and I was able to basically scratch it off. You kind of expect that sort nasty attitude from most holos though, since they are pretty enough to put up with.. and it sure was pretty! Next time though I will try topcoating anyway to see if it lasts longer.
