I found this polish quite entertaining - at different angles the base and shimmer looked like different colors.

Different Dimension - You Blew It

COATS:
2

COMMENTS:
This could easily have been a 1-coat blue, but I used two. I wasn't getting enough of the holographic "flame" from it, so I decided to stamp with another holo polish.

Two black holographic polishes? I had to wear them together and compare them - and then of course I couldn't decide which one I liked more.

I had seen gel manis like this on the internet and wanted to try this out myself. My "blobs" didn't turn out as defined as I wanted, but I got the experience.

China Glaze - Hot Flash with IBD - Celfie in Amalfi

COATS:
2 + 1
SOURCE:
Nail Supply House, Skyline Beauty Supply
COMMENTS:
I really liked this color in the bottle, but it looked a little neon on me and I didn't want to wear it just as a solid color. The IBD polish was nearby so I layered it over the red.

Still loving the holos - this one was gorgeous even when you couldn't see the holographic "flame".

Holographic foil mani

COATS:
1
SOURCE:
Aliexpress.com
COMMENTS:
This was a really blingy one! I purchased a set of nail foils from Aliexpress and this one screamed to be tried out first. It's a holo background with a lace print in black - like foil and stamping in one. Application was fine using foil glue over 1 coat of American Apparel Hassid. I started topcoating them with a no-wipe gel topcoat, but that wasn't curing as shiny as I liked, so I redid a few  nails and used a gel-like polish topcoat (Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat) instead.
