Blue Frankenholoshimmer!



Blue Frankenholoshimmer ~ I only have eyes for you


Do you remember this post, where I showed you my latest frankenpolish? If not, then please go and read it – I’ll wait for you here while you do :D

Back yet? Alright, let’s move right on. I decided to use my frankenpolish for an entire mani instead of just for nail art.

The polish is pretty opaque, but it still takes two coats to make it look great. The polish applies easily and the drying time is reasonably average. Let me show you what two coats (with no top coat) looks like in the sun:


The holo isn’t the strongest but it’s definitely there. I guess the reason for it being less prominent is that I added quite a lot of shimmer to this polish. I love shimmer, as you may know :D Look at this pic:


I also decided to name my creation. I call it “I only have eyes for you”, and to honour that name I picked two other holos, namely Color Club’s Beyond, which is a fantastic black holo from their Halo Hues collection from this spring, and an Urban Outfitters holo called Silver Holo.

I dotted with the silver holo first, and then the black on top of the silver, attempting to make them look like little eyes, LOL! I topped it all with a layer of Catrice Quick Dry & High Shine topcoat, and here’s my final mani:

Another angle:


And the pretty holos:


Here’s an before and after picture from when I made the franken:


I really like this – it really shows how big a sucker I am for holos! I’m so glad to be able to finally wear them after having had them stored away for the entire winter!

Do you like holos as much as I do? If so, what’s your favourite brand/polish?

    1. Layla also make amazing holos, and I love my Gosh too - also for stamping, which it's just perfect for! I think my favourite holos are from Hits :)

  5. Your franken is so pretty on its own! It's a fantastic blue and I love all the shimmers/holos in there. Love the dots you added on top too! :-)
