I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before (haha), but I loooove holographic polishes. Especially the Color Club ones – they have the most jam-packed holo for good prices. As I recently said, I love it so much I’d pour it all over my body as body paint… if only there was enough in the bottle for that and for my nails!
Gorgeous, right?! I call it my peekaboo manicure because it reminds me of a curtain drape drawing back and revealing the polish underneath. Peekaboo, I seeee you orange polish!
Here’s what I did:
- Base color: Illamasqua Purity, a beautiful pastel peach color that applies so easily. It looks more orangey in the pictures, but it really is more of a cantaloupe peach.
- Taped using an angled sticker (See the next picture)
- Top color: Color Club Eternal Beauty, a beautiful grape purple holo. I only used 1 coat… 1 coat! And it still looks that amazing.
Silly me – I wanted to show the sticker I used, and I showed it flipped around. See how pretty this linear holo is?! Gorgeous!
And more pics – ignore the red lobster hands please!
And I wanted to show another polish I had on recently, Julep Blakely. It’s a really pretty grey shimmer with shifts to purple and green. From what I’ve seen, it’s an exact dupe of Peace & Love & OPI and Essie For the Twill of It. I got it for super cheap during one of Julep’s big sales.
I did a really impatient manicure with this one and ended up with a lot of bubbles. I also used my favorite topper – ILNP (I Love Nail Polish) My Private Rainbow, a holographic topcoat. This topcoat comes in 3 versions: linear, scattered, or a combo. I bought the linear version, and I love it! I mean, the ability to make any polish holographic?! That’s a superpower I never dreamed of! 🙂 It looked really good over Julep Blakely, but the above pic doesn’t do it justice.
