My Ten Friends: Holtzman Effect and Clusterfrak


I'm quite excited about today's post because I get to share a blast from the past and something totally new from My Ten Friends!

Clusterfrak is one of the original colors in the first launch of the My Ten Friends brand and Mei-Lynn has reformulated it and brought it back for us to enjoy! It's a vibrant almost limey green that sparkles with gold holo, purple shreds, and bright matte blue glitters. This polish is also packed to the brim with micro glitter and shimmer so it's opaque all on its own in just two coats. I do have the original and I think they're different enough from each other to own them both if you love the colors of the polish.

Brand new to the MTF line is The Holtzman Effect. I teased Mei-Lynn by telling her that she must have created this one especially for me because LOOK at the colors!! An indigo base with green shimmers and holo. How could a polish be more perfect for me, right? She appreciated my attempt and got a good laugh from it at least! :P

I'll write the real inspiration as described by Mei-Lynn below, as not to confuse anyone, but I'm still gonna be in my own world when I look at and wear this polish!
The Holtzman Effect is a fictional scientific phenomenon from Dune. While it can do many things, the part I like best is "its ability to fold space and time, and thus allow for instantaneous travel from one side of the universe to the other." (Dune Wiki)


I took a bottle shot because it really shows off the green shimmer and the purple leanings of the base color. On the nail, it looks more indigo or blue.
