Keep your holos shiny with Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Fast Dry Top Coat

If you’re like me, you want your manicures to last more than half a day, but with holos, that’s often a problem. A topcoat helps seal in your color and makes your mani last longer, but the thing is that most top coats dulls the holographic effect. So you basically have to choose between having a spectacular mani that chips very quickly, or a longer lasting mani that isn’t as holographic as you’d like it to be.

What if I say that you don’t have to choose anymore? A while back, Karianne gave a tip about a top coat that doesn’t dull holographic nail polishes. This magic potion is called Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Fast Dry Top Coat.

Too good to be true? Definitely not! In the previous post, I’m wearing it over Layla Emerald Divine, and as you can see, the effect is as impressive as ever. If you’re still not convinced, here’s a nail wheel pic of my three Laylas in the sunlight. One half of each swatch is with topcoat, the other is without. Can you tell which is which?

Diamond Flash is easy to use, and it dries very quickly. I’ve been wearing my Emerald Divine manicure for more than a day now, and it’s survived both a shower and general housekeeping.

I got my bottle of Diamond Flash from eBay.

  1. the right sides are with topcoat? (wild guess, but there’s a “shiny line” on all the right sides… )

  2. Well, I can’t tell. I must get me some of that…

  3. Det är konstigt, men jag har faktiskt aldrig stött på att ett överlack har dämpat holoeffekten. Nu kör jag ju i princip jämt med Poshé, men jag har inte sett någon skillnad hos Seche Vite eller de jag testat från Nubar och CND heller.

    Jag vill fortfarande yrka på att det är en myt. :D

  4. Just bought it and I love it, thanks for the tip!! :)

  5. Just a note to tell you that I purchased it and it arrived in my nail mail this week. It is GREAT!! Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. The right side looks shinier. I hope the right side is the one with the topcoat!

  7. Haha…hmmm…well, next time you do a holo paint job, maybe you can try it again and write it down. :p

  8. Hahaha…:p

  9. I normally turn my nose up at Sally Hansen for some reason, but I think I’ll have to check this out! I also wanted to let you know I updated my blog roll (it was needing it badly!) and added links to blogs I follow. You’ve been included! ♥
