Glittering Elements ~ Totally Nuclear!



Glittering Elements ~ Totally Nuclear!
Acid gren scattered holo

I have tried something new: Semi customs. Semi customs is a concept where you chose what colour you want, and then Casey makes a polish that colour, but she chooses the finish. That means that you don’t know if you receive a glitter, a holo, a shimmer, a jelly or anything.

I was happy to receive this acid green as a holo!

The formula is a bit on the thick side, so I suspect there’s neon pigment in this polish. I don’t mind thick though – I actually prefer that over thin. This is a one coater too! I wasn’t quite careful enough, so I had to apply a second coat of polish to correct my little irregularities. The drying time is fast and the polish dries up to a satin matte finish.

Here’s two coats in the sun:



And here it is in the shadows.


I stamped on it. I found a round motif on BundleMonster’s plate BM-616 and I stamped with NailNation 3000’s Black. I topped it up with a layer of topcoat and here’s my final mani:


Isn’t this just gorgeous:


If you’d like to try your own semi-customs, you can do it here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/GlitteringElements
You order three at the time, so I have got two others to show you. I’ll definitely do this again. It’s awesome!

Number of coats: 1
Drying time: Fast
Finish: Scattered holo that dries up to a satin finish
Overall impression: I like it! This is going to be great for nail art as well because of the great pigmentation
Buy again: Yes
