Here is a little background on the collection from Lauri:
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge Big Bang Theory fan., When i am working on nail polish my portable dvd player is almost always playing past Big Bang Theory Seasons. Aside from being a funny ass show, it also makes me think about the big picture., and not in a sanctimonious way either. It literally begs me to seek out more information through its' humor., i mean., how freakin' cool is that? I also must admit that me and math have never played well together, i have what you'd call an "Art Brain" and it's not a great science art brain either like DaVinci., mmm'kay?! :D I firmly believe that the part of my brain that has gifted me with my artistic talent at the same time shorted me in mathematical aptitude department., because of this I have the utmost respect not only for the field of theoretical physics., but all of those who are involved in the field itself. They are beyond mind-blowingly intelligent in my opinion.
One of my all time favorites episodes is from Season 6, Episode #5 - "The Holographic Excitation" In this one, Penny surprises Leonard by visiting his lab. During her visit, while showing her all of the "high techie techie., and low techie techie" equipment that he works with every day, Leonard explains to Penny what is known as "the holographic principle" quite beautifully., so much so, that even my dumb ass can understand it. XD
Watch the clip of it here.
Leonard: "You know, there's a foundational idea in string theory, that the whole universe may be a hologram."
Penny: "What do you mean?…..Oh… Wow…"
Leonard: "Well The Holographic Principle suggests that, what we all experience every day, in 3 dimensions, may really, just be information, on a surface located, at the farthest reaches of our cosmos…. So., it's possible that, our lives are really just acting out a painting on the largest canvas in the universe…"
Penny: "Sometimes I forget how smart you are…(laughs)"
…….and there ya have it - the Holographic Principle Collection…
The Holographic Principle is a silver linear holo. Formula was excellent and I used 3 thin coats for full coverage, though it was opaque in 2...I don't really know why I did a third. This polish has added purple flake shimmer that really serves to cool it down a bit and I love that about it! Silver holos tend to lean very warm/yellowish and the purple is the perfect addition to balance that out.
Unified Field is a cool green linear holo. Formula was very nice to work with and I got full coverage in 3 thin coats. This holo has more prominant added shimmer than the others and it really gives it a lot of dimension. The purple/blue just sparkles against the green base and makes this one of my favorites!
Just Another Gravitational Wave is a blue linear holo. Formula was excellent and I got full coverage in 2 coats. This one is filled with purple shimmer that adds some additional depth to the holo effect, but isn't super obvious in photos.
Hey! Get Outta My 3-Brane! is a red linear holo. Another fanastic formula with full opacity in 2 coats. This one leans more pink/fuchsia in real life, so just know that it's a really reddish/pinky shade.
Monstrous Moonshine is a warm purple linear holo. Formula was very easy to work with and built up to full opacity in 3 thin coats. This has a lot of blue shimmer in it to balance it out and add gorgeous depth.
A Volume of Space is a black-based color shifting polish that has a subtle shift from navy to purple and is filled with silver and gunmetal holo glitters. Formula had a nice glitter density and built up to opacity in 3 thin coats with no need for undies. The shift in this one is very nice and the addition of the glitters give it a really spacey look.
Wheeler's Bag of Gold is a gold flake polish with scattered gold holo microglitter. Formula had a nice glitter/flake density that spread easily on the nail and it built up to opacity in 2 easy coats. I love that this is a mostly flake polish, but the addition of the microglitters really puts it over the top by adding additional sparkle. It's gorgeous warm gold tone for the holidays too!
