After experiencing big flops that are 3D (gold) and HD (silver), I was looking forward to a little redemption from the Milani 3D Holographic Collection. Milani Cyberspace looks to be super promising in the bottle. The previous non-metallic colors of the collection served me well, so I was full ready to take the leap into Cyberspace!
Blue is one of my favorite colors, and Cyberspace by Milani is incredibly gorgeous. It’s a fairytale baby blue that looks simply enchanting. So now you know I love the base blue, but is it holographic enough?

Milani 3D Holographic Cyberspace Review
Yes! Milani Cyberspace has got a pretty holo effect that doesn’t disappoint. I mostly see a yellow/orange glow that shines from the center of the nails. It adds such a warm glow to the cool blue color. Very nice contrast!
The second predominate holo color from Milani 3D Holographic Cyberspace is actually blue. But don’t think that it’s boring since it won’t contrast with the base color. I would describe it as looking into clear blue water and seeing gems at the bottom of the ocean bed. The blue holo effect adds a glisten to the base color. It’s very pretty!
As with the others from the collection, Milani Holographic Cyberspace has a great formula. I hate goopy polishes that leave a patchy finish on the nails, but you don’t have to worry about that with Cyberspace. The consistency is superbly formulated, allowing for a easy application and an even finish that takes no effort at all.
And the drying time? Fast! I usually let it set for only about 5 minutes before I apply another coat or a top coat without worry. The finish you get is a glassy gloss, so you don’t even need a top coat to add that shine… but wear one anyway to protect your manicure!
The only issue I’ve encountered with Milani 3D Cyberspace is that it’s sheer. This is the same across the entire collection. After 2 coats, you get OK color, but a 3rd coat really makes the difference. You also get a more intense holo effect.
Final Verdict: 9.2/10
This is one of those colors that’ll have you staring at your nails non-stop. The holo demands attention, but it doesn’t take away from the beautiful blue that’s both soft and vibrant at the same time. Love. Love. Love. I would definitely repurchase if I ever run out.
What do you think of this color? Is it your favorite from the collection? Let me know please!
