This is Nire's Desire Levitate. A beautifully bright medium blue with a soft linear holo mostly in turquoise and gold and some red (let's admit this right here: I did not manage to capture any of the red for my pictures - aaargh). The shimmer is so strong, that it covers the holo effect in most of my pictures but there is the one or the other red spark in the below photos.
I applied two coats of Nire's Desire Levitate over my regular Base Coat. The formula is very creamy for a holo and highly pigmented. The consistent makes Levitate easy to control and already your first coat goes on nearly opaque. However, I would suggest you work rather with thinner than thicker coats as Levitate has a tendency to create polish swirls if applied too thickly. Repeated brushstrokes over the same area while the polish is still wet is not advisable either. You will drag the polish way all over the nail. The dry time is not overly fast though within normal ranges but beware, while the polish feels dry to the touch it is still highly sensitive to dents and even slight pressure. Slapping on a layer of fast drying Top Coat and keeping your activities light for a good half an hour after application is the way to go with this baby.
Final thoughts: Nire's Desire Levitate is beautiful, gorgeous, bright, happy! I love that the shimmer is so dominant and the holo gets a back voice "only" here. Don't get me wrong, I love me some holo but as of late I started to feel a tendency to repetition with them. Levitate looks to me like a step outside that box and onto new ways of working holos into a polish.
I ordered Nire's Desire Levitate with Erin's own Etsy Shop. Erin ships internationally and above all is a super sweet person. I have an inkling, that this will not be the last of her collections I splurged on ;-)
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
