   Hey guys! Today I have a demo and review of M Polishes To Have And To Holo! This is a silver linear holographic stamping polish that is both 5 and cruelty free. “THATH”  is sold out at this time but I do believe it will be restocked soon and comes in both a mini 5 mL size that retails for $4.25 and a full 15 mL that retails for $10.50. I will be testing this out today over Beyond by Color Club.

To begin I laid down one easy coat of Beyond from the 2013 Halo Hues collection by Color Club.

I topcoated this with HK Girl and allowed them to fully dry. Next I used an unnamed and unnumbered stamping plate I bought in a kit from Claire’s. It has several different tribal looking images, I’ll be using the dagger shaped one on the lower right!

I added a generous amount of To Have And To Holo and scraped firmly and at a low angle with my Born Pretty Scraper and rolled upwards with my Creative Shop Stamper! This is how it picked up:

I had no problems with THATH drying to quickly to transfer or getting it to pick up, and it stamps beautifully opaque! It does dry down matte for a really cool flocked effect, like so:

But all the glitter shines once you add a good topcoat! I used the same image and stamped on all of my nails and added some accent rhinestones from bornprettystore.com on my ring nails. Here is the finished look:
