Perfect Holographic #1


Perfect Holographic ~ #1
Lavendar Linear Purple

I’m so over the moon over the fact that the sun in shining, so I pulled out another one of my holos. This one is from a brand called “Perfect” and it doesn’t have a name, but can only be identified by it’s number: 1!

Let me start out by telling you that this polish needs a lot of shaking up before use. And I’m not talking about half a minute of gentle shaking, I’m talking about shaking vigorously for over five minutes. I tell you: That’s a whole lot of shaking going on.

And another thing: This polish loves an aqua base. I tried with my regular base coat first, but I ended up with a streaky patchy mess, even after the second coat. So I took it all off, and was very happy to find out that the aqua base coat solves all the problems in that department :)

The formula is great though. It applies easily over the aqua base coat, it dries fast and it covers really well. It was almost done after the first coat, so the second coat was mostly for the camera.

Here’s what the pretty polish looks like in the sunshine:


The rainbows nearly blinded me! Here’s another shot:


I picked a simple stamping design for this. I found some stripes on my plate Apipila 01 and used Altered Reality from China Glaze’s Tranzitions collection for the actual stamping. I sealed it up with a topcoat (a mix between Depend and BK topcoat – BK was runny and Depend was getting thick, so I merged them), and here’s the final mani:


I used my squishy XL stamper, and that shows, but I keep practising and at some point I am going to learn how to get the designs exactly right :)


My holos are for the sunshine. Have you got special polishes that you only use in the summer?

    Holo and traning in one. That is practical ;)

    And i really like the stamping. It gives the mani a little edge without taking focus.
