Twinsie Tuesday: Holographic Polish

29 May

Tuesday!  Totally feels like a Monday because yesterday was a holiday that felt like a weekend.  I love long weekends.  I had a great Memorial Day and I hope the rest of you did too.

Today we’re all showcasing holographic polishes.  I’ve been holding on to a beauty for a while and I’m glad I did so that I can show it to you today.  I give you Glitter Gal 10 to Midnight.

I’d had been eyeballing this polish for a while and just couldn’t take it anymore.  I wish it was a bigger bottle; it’s just a mini.  I layered this over CND Asphalt which is a dark grey with a blue undertone.

I took several dozen pictures with different lighting settings on my camera and actually under different lighting sources.  It was dark when I did this, so there are no sun pictures.  The first three, above, are incandescent lighting.  Below, are all fluorescent.

Look at that bottle shot!  You can see every color of the rainbow in that bottle!  I love it!

Isn’t that gorgeous!  I haven’t had a chance to see this in the sunlight yet, but I’m sure it will be spectacular!

Glitter Gal Light as a Feather

3 May

I really, really wanted to be blown away by this polish.  I’ve been coveting Glitter Gal polishes for a while and this is one of two that I bought recently.  I thought a white holo would be gorgeous, but I’m underimpressed with it.  Not completely unimpressed, but not in love either.  I ordered this thinking it would be perfect for a wedding manicure.  What better than a white holo, right?

These first three pictures are under regular old incandescent lighting and while the holo effect in the bottle is fantastic, the effect isn’t showing up on my nail.  I wanted this to really be white, so I layered it over Nina Ultra Pro ridge filling base coat in white.

I know the above picture looks like turd, but it’s just to show you the rainbow potential.  This is under fluorescent light.

And lastly, in my desperate attempt to capture a glimpse of the holo that I saw in the bottle, we have direct sunlight.

There it is!  Now that’s beautiful!  It is a little greyer and silver toned than I had hoped.  The moral of the story?  If you’re going to wear this as your wedding mani, make sure you choose an outdoor venue or no one will truly appreciate it.
