ABOP Franken - Green holo

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: Yes - Quick Slicker
SOURCE: Franken made with a Golden Rose silver-ish holo and a dark blue and yellow (can't remember which). Tips are made with franken of clear with holo pigment from beauty supply store.

COMMENTS: I wanted a true green holo and made this a few months back. The holo is somewhat elusive, and having no natural light to take my photos doesn't help matters. I decided to jazz up the tips with a holo pigment franken, then didn't like it so much. Soooo I fixed it by using a striper brush to add a line of the green to break up the tip section. The best part? Hubby-approved! He complimented me on them just out of the blue.
*Don't forget you can click on the photos to see them up close and personal!



Below - what it looks like most of the time.
