This is the new version of the infamous Gosh holographic nail polish. It’s fabulous in the sun, obvs!, but it does chip really easily and quickly. It does say on the lid that it’s “For One Night Only”, and they mean it! it’s a chippy mess by day two.
Advertising a holographic polish for use at night time is really silly! It’s only holographic in the sun! It really should say for one day only? It doesn’t sound as glamourous but at least it makes sense! :P
I used BornPrettyStore water decals on my ring finger, I love houndstooth! These water decals are so easy to use, I’m wearing them more and more. Such a great alternative to stamping! (I practice and practice but still end up with polish everywhere but my nails!) These just glide on!

A few days ago, a girl posted a manicure that was all of her holographic nail polishes all at once on reddit and it was ammmA-zing! So of course I had to try it too!
(I can’t find the post now but if you see this please message me and I’ll link to you and give you credit!).
As a base I used a couple of coats of Wet n Wild 2% Milk. It is the most beautiful, flattering sheer nude polish but I forgot to take pictures of it, so I’ll do another post on just that polish at a later date.
Then I added two coats of Hits Hefesto which is a holographic topcoat. (Hits re-released this polish with a new, better, formula and you can buy it here.) Video below!
Then I added two coats of Nails Inc Electric Lane Holographic Topcoat, which is a super fine silver/holographic glitter. Video below!
Then I added a coat of Model’s Own Juicy Jules just on the bottom half of my nails, because I didn’t want to drown out the other, finer polishes. All the holographics! :D Video below!
This was so much fun!

I love this glitter! It’s so colourful and sooo reflective – it really is a party in a bottle. I’m definitely going to recreate this mani for my B-day. :)
I first used two coats of NYC Carrie’d Away as a nude base and then simply painted one coat of glitter the usual way, then the second coat I started about a third of the way down the nail and for the last coat I just painted the bottom third of my nail. The end result is a graduated look.
The glitter looks like it’s falling down my nails! *Squee* It’s so cute!
Plus, it was so easy to do! (It’s the same method I used for my syrup mani.)
I hope you like it and I urge you to try it, it’s so easy to do and it gives a great effect! :)

I went absolutely ga-ga over the Rimmel Space Dust Collection. I bought the only two I could find and they both quickly became my favourite silver and nude polishes. They are the best textures ever because they are sparkly and matte at the same time, very pigmented and they look texturised but never snag on anything.
When I came across the entire Space Dust collection in a pound shop, I bought them all, including a spare silver and nude!
This purple Space Dust is called Moon Walking and it has a much richer colour than you see in the bottle and tiny purple glitter that catches alll the light, and larger hex glitter for extra sparkle. I absolutely loved it and didn’t make the mistake of adding anything to it! :)

In case you missed my previous posts about the Space Dust collection; here’s the nude one, Aurora:
and the silver one, called Shooting Star, as an accent to Essence The Boy Next Door:

I have two gorgeous polishes on today and zero pictures that capture that beauty! (I tried my best!)
Oh My Gosh Cobalt Blue is the Holy Grail of blues for me. I’ve always wanted a polish that is dark blue but not to the point that it just looks like I’m wearing black polish. It has to be dark and also blue, and this is! (Am I making sense? or is this crazy nail polish talk?)
17 came out with a holographic polish some years ago and it’s simply called Silver. (Do you remember seeing it in every Boots ad, in every magazine, coming up to Christmas and then checking the 17 stand in Boots every week only to never find it there? …Just me? Ok. Maybe that was just me.) Anyway…*cough* I found it! I went to Dublin for some xmas shopping and found quite a few wishlist polishes and this was one of the best!
It looks like a plain, dull, white silver in the shade but in the sun it comes alive! You get that gorgeous rainbow effect. I love it. So much fun to wear when you’re going anywhere. (Holographic polish has to be worn to the beach in the Summer!)
Here are the best pics I could take of it :)
Oh My Gosh Cobalt Blue and 17 Silver (Holo)
This is what it looks like in the shade, it’s definitely an outside polish! :)

Do you own any holographic polishes? What’s your favourite?
I’m having lots of fun experimenting with nail art but it’s so scary because it’s very difficult to make it look like it does on Pinterest! Those girls are professionals! (Nail Technicians, not the other kind of professional. ;)
Today I thought, “Why try one nail art effect, when you can try them all?” and I ended up with dots, stripes, chevrons and (always) glitter!
– I used NYC Frozen Metal (silver) under Wet n Wild I Need A Refresh-Mint (green) for the stripes on my index finger.
– My Middle finger is two coats of No7 Snow Wash over I Need A Refresh-Mint.
– Ring finger is Rimmel Disco Fever, hand placed, over NYC Frozen Metal.
– Pinkie is Deborah Lippman Amazing Grace over I Need A Refresh-Mint.
