Orly Mirrorball is a silver holographic with small holographic glitters

Who knew that the day would come when I easily found a linear holographic at a brick and mortar store,  I went to Ulta to get some lipbalm for my friend Sue, and there it was, a full Orly Holiday display with this.

Now that I've been frankening a lot, I can tell you for sure, that this is not Spectraflair.  This is, in my opinion, a different product that is five times cheaper.  That being said, it's been proven to be pretty stable in nail polish, so this will not fade.  The only thing, is that it is not as strong or 'rainbowy', and they probably cannot make too many colors with it.  If it is not the pigment that I think it is, then Orly has probably hit the jackpot, and found a new cool-looking holo pigment.

I personally don't like the coverage or the look of this particular kind of pigment.  Not only is the rainbow weaker, but the colors seem yellowed somehow.  Fortunately, Orly has added nice holographic thin glitters that make Mirrorball a little bit better.  I didn't do comparison pics for this one, because there are probably a million out there already.  Edit: or I guess in the next few weeks there will be?  If not, I can take one for the team.  Just say the word and I will try my best to squeeze in a comp post for next week <3
