Untried Polish Challenge – Prettiest

I cannot believe that I am more than halfway through the challenge! It is taking me a long time to do it, but that is because I have no time limit and I actually wear my manis until they chip and I need a new one. Doing a challenge on a schedule is a whole different ballgame and something I’m not willing to take on currently.


On my last trip to Maskscara I purchased my first two holographic polishes. After drooling over swatches from Ordinary Misfit and Siobhan of their holographic polishes I decided to get myself one (or two). I was dying to put on something really girly and pretty again, so decided on the prettiest category for my next mani.


As usual I started with my base coat of Tip Top Miraculous Results to protect my natural nails. I then painted two coats of China Glaze Astro-Hot on all my nails. Fair warning, let the first coat dry before painting the second. I had a lot of dragging at my cuticles because I was impatient. The polish looked quite brush strokey while I was applying it, but evened out nicely as it dried. I used my China Glaze Gamer Glam to paint Spanish tips a la Siobhan. I free handed it since I didn’t need to make all my tips look the same. I sealed it all in with my Seche Vite top coat. The result:

Any holographic polish really comes to life in the sun:

What a beauty!


Just gorgeous, isn’t it? What do you think? Do you like holographic nail polish? Would you wear it?
