Achieving the holographic look I wanted took a lot of trial and error. I tried several other silver & glitter polishes before I was happy with the combination. Leave it to the crafty ladies on Etsy to make the best stuff! I was totally happy with both of these bottles (application, removal & wear) and highly recommend you take a look around their shops. As for the pearly shade, I've always loved pearls. A classic, right? Supposedly "Megan" means pearl, or perhaps 'little pearl', so that may be why I'm so fond of them.
