Joss ~ Alternate Dimension

Joss ~ Alternate Dimension
Warm orange linear holo with a coral tone

I wanted to test if this polish needed an aqua base coat or not, so I just used my regular base coat. And application was easy. I didn’t experience any dragging or pulling on the polish, so this can easily do without the aqua base coat. It took two coats to achieve this look:

Joss calls this “a warm holo with a golden sunset tinge”, and that’s a pretty good description. There’s a tint of coral in it, which I usually don’t like much. But I am not kidding when I say that this the only time I’ve actually liked wearing a coral-toned polish! Amazing. No less than amazing!
More pics for you: 

The colour reminds me of a really delicious dessert or something.

I just couldn’t stop taking picture of this beauty!

And the holo also pops in lower light, which I really like.

I decided to make my nail art really simple, in order not to overwhelm the polish. I made a swirl out of dots. I used a red Astor polish called 025 for the dots. It’s a dark red with golden shimmer, which I thought would be perfect for the sunset-y holo.

I think the orange and the red fit each other perfectly.

Here’s a pic taken in low light so you can see that the holo still “works” :)

The verdict is a thumb up from me. I’m impressed by the quality of the polish and the holographic effect. And I had my breath taken away by the colour, which was a total surprise for me.
