Good morning and happy 4th of July! I do have on a 4th of July mani, I shared it on my Instagram account HERE. Hopefully you are enjoying a brew and some bbq - ready to watch fireworks tonight. I am doing all those things later today, but right now I am enjoying a few minutes of downtime after a morning race (which I took 3rd place in) and sharing this fabulous post with you! This is a new-to-me brand, Echoes Polish. If you head over to their website you will learn that Echoes Polish is run by 2 sisters from Canada. And if you look through the shop you'll see tons of polish in a wide variety of finishes. But what I have to share with you today is the brand new Stop, Drop and Holo collection. A set of 6 neon jelly-ish polishes full of holo. This collection had me oohing and aahing, I liked each more than that last. The Stop, Drop and Holo collection will be available tomorrow, 7/5 at 12pm EST. They will be $11CAD each and Echoes Polish does ship outside of Canada. You ready to see neon holos? Me too, lesgo!
Up first is Put My Fire Out! This is a red-coral neon holo with a jelly-like formula. This color is amazing. The holo sits somewhere perfectly between linear and scattered (I think it's a little of both). The formula was fantastic and the application was easy-peasy. I used 3 coats of Put My Fire Out! and 1 layer of topcoat to gloss things up.
Here's Emergency Pink. I know this will be a favorite because pink is such a popular color. Pretty much everyone I know loves pink. Emergency Pink is a perfect neon holo. Bright, loud but girly. We've got another jelly-like formula here and it's prefect for this polish. The formula was nice and smooth, the application was fabulous. I had full coverage in 3 coats of Emergency Pink and 1 layer of topcoat.
My Safety Color is indeed my safety color. When I don't know what to wear I usually find myself reaching for some shade of orange. My Safety Color is an awesome, juicy neon orange holo. Just like the last ones, the formula and application were both stellar. I used 3 coats of My Safety Color for full coverage and finished with a layer of topcoat for a glossy finish.
I really liked all the previous colors, but when I got to You Feel The Ground Shake? my heart skipped a few beats. THIS color is totally killing it! It's an awesome neon sour apple green holo polish with a jelly finish. I loved everything about it, including the formula and application. Both were fabulous. I used 3 coats of You Feel The Ground Shake? for my pictures. You can see that there is still a bit of visible nail line, but it doesn't bother me. You can opt for a 4th coat or starting with a matching base color, but I really don't think you'll need to do that. I topped it off with a layer of topcoat.
Cool And Collected is a serene but electric neon blue holo. I can't help but think of Debbie Gibson when I see this shade of blue, I really don't know why. You're welcome for that useless little bit of information about me. In real life Cool And Collected is just a touch brighter than my pictures. the formula has that great jelly consistency that is easy to build up in layers. I used 3 coats of Cool And Collected, again you can very slightly see the visible nail line here but it's really very minimal. I finished with a layer of topcoat.
Last but not least, especially since it was my other favorite color in the collection, is I'm Trouble. Indeed I am. This is a magenta-purple polish full of holo pigment. I'm Trouble has the most opaque formula of all the 6 in this collection. It's actually more of a creme finish too. I only needed to use 2 coats of I'm Trouble for full coverage. 1 layer of topcoat to shine things up.
