If you’re a fan of holographic nail polish (who isn’t?), you’ll totally flip over Urban Outfitters Green Holo!
I’m the proud owner of this ridiculously amazing nail polish because my friend, Carmela from Polished Indulgence, surprised me with it as part of a Christmas present! (Thank youuuu!)
You get the entire rainbow in a bottle, and what I especially appreciate is that it translates onto the nail beautifully.
This is a must-have polish, but then again, all strong holographic polishes are must-haves to me! 😉

Urban Outfitters Green Holo Review
Green Holo by Urban Outfitters is more of a light seafoam green rather than a darker green holo like Nubar Reclaim.
A lot of the time, it seemed to verge on looking more blue than green, but that’s okay. I can forgive that because the holographic effect is what I’d call a Hercules Holo because it’s stroooonnnnng! Yeah, flex those polish biceps, babyyy! 😉
But, as you can see in the bazillion photos above, you’ll notice there’s the entire rainbow winking at you. There’s red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and I think I saw a bit of purple sometimes.
This is a spectacular nail polish that’s very memorable. It’s a great celebratory polish that’s very flashy. You’ll surely attract a lot of attention when wearing this. 🙂
The holographic finish is absolutely stunning. It’s a linear holo, too. This means the rainbow forms lines rather than being scattered like pixels. I love both types, but the strong linear ones are often harder to find.
Application & Formula
This is how holographic polishes should be like. The consistency is on the thin side, but it’s easy to control, highly pigmented, and it creates a finish that looks flawless.
Some people say that you shouldn’t apply a top coat because it dulls the holo effect, but I wore my usual fast-drying top coat, and I didn’t notice any difference with or without. However, I used it because I wanted to seal everything in and ensure better manicure mileage. 🙂
Final Verdict: 10/10
This is a mind-blowing nail polish! It’s one of the strongest linear holo polishes I own, so it really impressed me. I’m really thankful that this one’s in my collection, and now I may just have to hunt down the other colours, too! 😉
What’s your favourite linear holo polish? Do you have any other lacquers from Urban Outfitters?
