Introducing another beauty I got via Hypnotic Polish: this Glitter Gal holographic goodness is called Transfusion.
Transfusion is a plum-ish/red purple shade filled with holographic shimmer. I'm a bit confused with this polish, to be honest. The name suggests the color would be blood red, but it's actually more on the warm purple side. It's also funny how different this polish looks/photographs under different lighting conditions. And also, how it looks when top coat is added. The name 'transformer' would suit it better in my opinion. =)
This is how it looked under artificial lighting: on left without top coat and on right with one layer of Essence Better Than Gel Nails top sealer. As you can see, top coat makes it look deeper and darker, but it also dulls the holo shimmer. It's still visible, although it changes from linear to scattered looking holo shimmer.

Here's an outdoor photo of Transfusion on natural lighting, without top coat. You can see it looks much warmer here and more on the red side of the color scale. The finish isn't as glossy as I would have liked, but I prefer a satiny finish with linear holo effect from glossy with dull holo shine.
Once again: the difference between Transfusion without (on the left) and with top coat (on the right) on natural lighting. The formula of this polish was perfect and the application was really easy. The brush is small, but easy to work with and I didn't have to do any cleanup after the application. That's always a plus. Transfusion needs 2 coats for full opacity and it dries relatively fast. The finish isn't glossy, but somewhat satiny. Adding a top coat over it will make it glossy, but as I mentioned, it will also change the features of the polish quite a bit. I suggest you try it with and without to see which look you prefer.
My little helper was (of course) around again...
