Serum No. 5 Fame

Where did my nubbins go? seems my nails grew faster this time around.  I have a teaser for you.  I know it's bad of me to tease you, but you have to see this.  It's a holographic topcoat that is part of the new Serum No. 5 SS13 Collection.  I will show it again with Part 2 very soon, here is part 1 of the collex.  This wont be available for a couple of weeks, so that's why I called it a tease, but I will keep you updated on restock dates.  Well, this holographic topcoat was different.  It has tiny flakies (akin to CND Sugar Sparkle), so that when you're in the shade your nails look like they have glittery goodness on them.  In the sun they disappear and all you get is this gorgeous, strong holographic shimmer.  At first I thought why are these whitish, tiny flakes here? but then I started loving them.  They also help with coverage because it takes 5 coats for opacity if you want to wear Fame on its own; for a holo topcoat that's pretty good.  I tried this over several cremes.  From the simplest pink (e.g.: Essie Vanity Fairest) to the weirdest green (e.g.: Illamasqua Radium), and it looked great on all of them.  They looked candy coated.  I especially liked it over Chick All A Twitter and other similar aqua lacquers.  Then I had this smirk on my face and thought: how would it look over a gold fleck, duo-chromeish, dark metallic?
