WinMax is a nail polish brand from Japanese 100-yen shop “Daiso” and that means this holographic beauty costs only less than 1 euro! Well, yes, bottle contains only 8mL, but SO WHAT!? It’s still extremely cheap, and also really pretty.

Despite of its low-price, quality is pretty good. Not as well-known China Glaze OMG or Nfu Oh holos, this does not requires special basecoat for smooth application. Dry shiny and a bit glossy, so even after the topcoat, holo is still there. It’s not hyper-strong holo but it still clearly shows great linear holo effect even under the normal room light in the night! At least I can say it has more stronger effect than Cathrine Arley holos…

BUT, sadly I’ve heard that this cutie has been discontinued last year. Also this was not always available in all branch of “Daiso”, so it was already kind of HTF sweetie on that moment…and now it’s really gone! Fortunately I had a chance to go back Japan last year, and one of my local “Daiso” still had the stock, but…actually this holo has 9 sisters and I only could get 5 of them. WHAAAAAH!! COME BAAAAAAAAAACK!!! :(

知る人ぞ知るダイソー玉虫。100玉いわれて親しまれていた一品ですが昨年惜しくも廃盤になったとか。偶然去年急に日本に帰るときがあって、たまたま地元のダイソーにまだストックがあって、色があるだけ全部1本ずつ(全色は無かったorz)買って来たのが幸いしました……が、その後廃盤だと知って箱ごと全部買って来ればよかったと真剣に落ち込みましたorz
ともあれ超いい色ですコレ。オフィスにも行けそうな地味派手ベージュ玉虫って激烈大好物なのですが(の割りにDS-design持ってませんが。何れ買うのだー!)これは本当にキレイに虹色の帯が出るし地色は穏やかだしで非常にお気に入りです。マジで何故1本しか買わなかった。いや100均の宿命で若干分離していた(!)上、棚で微妙にほこり被ってた(!!)ので1本だけにしたんですが……必死に振りまくったら復活しましたよ。見事な玉虫ですよ。暗めの部屋でも見事に輝きますよ!!
本当に何で廃盤になったのか悲し過ぎる一品。お願いです復活して下さい。
