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.

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.

These are supposed to be color change gels but they don't change much at all.  I stamped for a bit of added whimsy.

Le Chat Mood Gel - Atlantis - over previous Gelaze mani

1 over previous manicure

Since I knew this temperature change gel would be sheer/clear when warm, I decided to combine it with my previous mani as the base. It was fun watching the color change!

Caption - Caught Your Eye

COATS:
3
SOURCE:
Skyline Beauty Supply
COMMENTS:
This one was tricky to capture on camera because my phone and my camera didn't agree on what it looked like. It's definitely a subtle holo, and I'm a bit disappointed that it required 3 coats for full coverage.
