<< For those wary of too much metallic or just wanting to dress down, layer a metallic tank or tee with a chambray shirt and your fave pair of blue denims. Add a neaker of your choice.

Holographic refers to any material where you see shifting rainbows. Iridescence happens when colours change from one to another, creating the effect of a rainbow hue. Several beauty bloggers made this trend of 'unicorn' make-up popular.


Youtuber Cristine Rotenberg (inset) of Simply Nailogical coined the term holosexual, and creates videos of her search for holographic products, be it nailpaints of even coffee. Her channel has 4.6 million followers.
