China Glaze - When Stars Collide

I have the second of my Hologlam picks for you today (I already showed Strap on your Moonboots previously), When Stars Collide, this one is a gorgeous deep maroon sort of shade.
It's not a really in your face, vivid holo effect like the OMG collection but it is super pretty!  These pictures are all 3 coats.
Under bright indoor lighting you can really see the holographic effect in action.

Unfortunately I can't comment on how good it looks under direct sunlight as it's Glasgow, it's February and sunlight is in short supply.
 In low light it takes on a lovely silvery hint, I assume from all those holographic particles that are crammed in there.

What I really love about this polish is that it's also so pretty when the holographic effect isn't so obvious, it's a lovely warm plum shade which is really given some depth by the holographic particles even when they aren't out in full force.
When I first put this on I immediately though that my mum would adore it, she's not one for very bold colours but this is such a classic shade that's it's wearable by anyone but it also has a little extra depth and edge added by the gorgeous holographic effect.
