So I have returned from my two weeks in Turkey with a much lighter purse, twelve new polishes and two manis to show you.
Like I said in my last post I took my holographic on holiday with me to see how it would look in PROPER sunlight, not the silly lightbulb strength light we get in Scotland.
I got Catherine Arley's holographic 676 as a birthday present from my mum and hadn't got around to trying it out yet, so I decided a holiday in 100+ degrees was the perfect time to try it out.
The day before I left I did my nails.
I used Rimmel base coat, a coat of Maybelline's Silver Speed and two coats of 676. I didn't apply a top coat as I have heard a lot about top coats ruining the holographic effect and I really wanted to see it in all it's glory.
It fared well for a over a week with minimal tip wear. The only problem was that the chemicals in my suncream seemed to dull the holographic effect a bit which was disappointing. Also the heat seemed to melt the polish a little to it was possible to scrape off a layer with your fingernail quite easily...
Apart from that I was very impressed with the holo. It is much better than what the pictures show, but we all know that holos are notoriously difficult to photograph.
Thanks for reading!
