Say what you may, but you can’t deny the allure of holographic makeup. Far from the subtle pinks or bold reds, this trend taps into the futuristic side of beauty. To get you on board with this funky fad, we’ve compiled a list of products that you need to stock up on.

For Holographic Nails

1. PrettyDiva Laser Holographic Nail Powder

Salivating over all the cool, #holonails you’ve been seeing on Instagram? Join the masses with this silvery powder. First, apply a base coat and then a gel top coat. Cure the polish with UV light. Next, smear the powder on to your tips with the help of a sponge applicator. Finally, add another layer of top coat and seal it with UV light.
