Claire's: #69925 Purple Holo

Claire's: #69925 Purple Holo
Purple to magenta and blue duochromatic shimmer

"Purple Holo" is another polish from my recent Claire's-haul. The name suggests that it's holographic but it isn't. It's a duochrome packed with shimmer. I think it's meant to be a topper, but I decided to wear it on its own.

The first coat is sheer. The second coat builds the coverage up somewhat, but I wasn't satisfied before the third coat was added. The drying time is really good. There were still bits where I could see through the polish but I was genuinely happy with three coats. The drying time between coats was really good.

The flowers are from the stamping plate "KADS Flower 039" and I stamped with "Fuchsia", a gorgeous stamping polish from El Corazon. The middle of the flowers are made with "Yellow", another stamping polish from El Corazón.

Here's the final result, including a layer of topcoat.

The duochromatic effect on my nails are a bit more prominent in real life but I couldn't quite catch the full effect on camera.

    Yeah do you notice how some companies get holos and duos confused? I do searches for one and the other comes up! We need to educate them huh? ;-)
