HOLODAY! Oh yeah, let’s make every day a holo day!
My biggest challenge was to figure out which polish to actually use, since I don’t buy much non-holographic polish at the moment.
Since Christmas is near, I chose my new favourite red: The Alchemist from Darling Diva.
I remember when holos suddenly got very popular, and when Brazilian nail polish companies came out with the most beautiful holographics ever! I had two swapping partners from Brazil to fulfil my greedy need for pretty holos. I was always on the lookout for a red, and I was really happy when I received “Ares” from Hits in a swap. Wow, it was amazing. It was almost the red I had been looking for. Since then I’ve tried many red holos, but never really found the one until recently, when I saw The Alchemist. It looks beautiful on the pictures, so I ordered it. And girl, my heart almost skipped a beat when it arrived: It was just as beautiful in real life. Oh, be still, my heart!
Anyway, enough of the talking – The Alchemist is my base colour of this mani:
The stamps are from two different XL stamping plates: K Holiday Design, and H. I stamped with my faithful Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White, and Black from NailNation 3000. I dotted red and green on the Christmas tree with The Alchemist and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri “Jumpin’ Jade”.
I love the goofy looking reindeer! :D
The Alchemist is also beautiful in low lights. Score!
The challenge next week is inspired. I’ll see if I can find something cool to inspire me!
