I’ve been on a quest, a noble but difficult quest. I have been searching for the perfect red holo. I’m talking about primary color red, a cherry-ish true red with a strong linear holo. I’ve seen many try and fail over and over again, most leaning pink, blueish-purple, or orange. So I went asking around my trusty polish-themed Facebook groups and came up with some good candidates.
My first candidate is from Loaded Lacquer and is called Double Shot of Sriracha. I was lucky enough to grab this baby up in a restock. It’s from the Sushi Bar Collection. Perfect, because this polish looks like its namesake, Sriracha!
In this quest of mine, unfortunately this lovely doesn’t quite make it. It’s a bit of a coppery/ orange red. Despite that, I’m still loving it! It’s quite stunning. Strong linear holo, and the color is quite pretty! The formula is really nice too – it applies like a jelly but has perfect coverage without visible nail lines in 3 coats.
Here come more pics:
Just look at that holo under direct light! It even looks a little pinkish here too.

And a close-up:
I have to say, this is a great polish! If you like red holos that lean a bit coppery-orange, you should definitely get this!
But my quest continues… I’ll keep you updated if I find what I’m looking for! Are you on any polish quests? Do you have my holy grail red holo? Let me know!
