This is a true, brilliant sapphire blue holo with a soft dusting of shifting crystalline flakes. The flakes aren't super up-front in this polish, but they do give a delightful electric blue shine when you wear this as a regular polish. It reminds me a satiny holiday ribbon. If you are looking for a Hanukkah polish, I think this one is the best 2019 could possibly offer. It is also 100% appropriate for your favorite Whovian...if you are starting your holiday shopping early.
I used one coat, along with this month's PPU top and base duo, for both the manicures in this post. The main this I was worried about with the hyper-saturated blue was staining. I am very inclined to stain with blues and greens. There is just something about my personal chemistry that just makes my fingers want to be one with those shades. This one, blessedly, didn't stain. Even during the stamping cleanup there were no issues.

Oh yeah, this is a stamping polish too! All the SPrinkles are spectacular stamping shades. You don't get a full-on rainbow with the stamping, but you get a healthy serving of the sparkling flakes and a deep rich blue. Even for mediocre stampers like me, the results are crisp and impressive. It almost looks like I know what I am doing!

This beautiful shade is a loving tribute to Amanda's grandmother, who passed away recently. Because her grandmother was an animal lover who made monthly donations to the ASPCA, 20% of the proceeds from this shade will be going to the ASPCA in her honor. I can't think of a better way to pay tribute to a loved one that by continuing to support an organization that they believed in.
This will be available as a pre-order starting on Friday, October 25 2019 at 10am PST. You definitely don't want to miss out. I haven't seen a blue holo stamp this well in a long time.
