I made an interesting technique..

I really like the effect but it would be hard to master. I just painted four layers on my nails (two coats per color) and then carefully removed some parts of the layers using nail polish remover. I like it, kinda tye-dye. 

Did I inspire you? Will you try it? Have you ever made up a new technique?

Born Pretty Holo Polish

     So.. I got sent a sample of this to blog about (Yay!) ..

As you can see in the photo one coat of polish gives you a sparkly sheer wash. You'll need two to three coats to get an opaque look, like I have on the second nail. I think as a holographic polish this fails, there are rainbow sparkles in it but if you look at polishes like Color Club's Halo Hues, you can get a helluva more holo effect. It does have a nice shine though, but also the brush (maybe cause it was a mini?) was too 'fluffy' for me, it made the application extra hard.

Zoya Pixie Dust in Solange

     This is from the Summer Edition and I love it! GOLD! GOLD!! GOLD!!! It's so beautiful to look at. It dries pretty fast and it has a sandy, rough texture that I love to rub my figures against. One coat will give you a sheer coverage which you could use as a top coat to give another color some bling. I used three coats for the full coverage effect in the picture below.

I need more!!! :)
