Roots is inspired by Frida Kahlo’s painting of the same name, in which she lays on the cracked earth, roots extending from her body to nourish the ground around her. Like the painting, this polish has a range of warm colors layered to create complexity and depth.
- Glitter-packed polish
- Clear base
- Color-shifting flakes with shades of red, copper, orange, and gold
- Holographic glitter
- Designed and made in the USA
Opaque in 2-3 coats.
This nail polish dries textured. We recommend applying clear top coat over the nail polish for a smooth, longer lasting mani!
Our photos are taken with daylight bulbs that replicate sunlight. Holographic nail polish looks best under sunlight and concentrated indoor lighting (e.g. halogen lights in the kitchen!).

Perhaps did not survive the heat well?
While the color is nice, the polish was uneven, applied gloppily and patchy, and required three coats to be evenly distributed. It was also rough and so required two top coats to eliminate the roughness. The color is lovely but the quality for the price was not there.

First coat was suuuuper thick and inconsistent. Second coat covered everything, but it didn't feel like it went on smoothly like the others I've purchased. It looks strange and lumpy upon inspection of the nail, but feels smooth under the fingers. Edges chipped after two days, even with top and base coats. This is the one I'm most disappointed in out of all the colors I've purchased.
Roots.... Oh My My My!
Guess who's distracted by her nails at work....? This chick!!! I love Roots so much. Opaque in 2 coats. The first coat scared me because it went on very splotchy. But the second coat did the job. I will add a third coat and at least 2 more coats of clear just because I like my polish thick. Dries fast too. This is almost like a duo chrome with all of the color changes and the holographic sparkles are mesmerizing. I will say that the polish in my bottle seems a bit thick but not sludgy. I really tried to shake it but I don't think it was moving around much in there. I may have to add some SS bb's to it. I am also going to check with customer service for some hints/tips. Otherwise this polish is AMAZING!!!!
Not my favorite from my purchases of this new Frida Kahlo collection but it's pretty decent. It does take a little practice to spread it and as mentioned, it was a little gloopy. However, despite that, I love the color and how it looks in the light. It's a lovely golden almost golden brown color with lovely holographic glitter.
