Twinsie Tuesday: Holo (Pic Heavy)

I forgot that Tuesday was just around the corner. Where has this weekend gone? Wherever it is, I hope that you all had a great memorial weekend! Anywho, this weeks Twinsie Tuesday challenge is: holo!


I own absolutely not a single holo polish and I was totally freaking out because I had no idea what I was going to do for this. Luckily I ran across Spectraflair on a blog sale and purchased it just in time for this. While I love how holo polishes look, I'm not entirely in love with the trend and can't justify spending $10-$15 on a single polish. I have been looking around and there are some that I really like and might even purchase in the near future, but for now my Spectraflair will do it for me!

Now onto the loveliness:

Sorry for so many pictures but I really wanted you to see the holo in this bad boy. I used 2 coats of OPI Road House Blues and 1 coat of the Spectraflair top coat to achieve this. Both polishes were buttery smooth to apply. I sort of wish the holo was more pronounced but I love how subtle it was since I'm not all that into holo polishes. Sometimes when I look it too much, I feel like vomiting. Gross and weird but I wasn't like this until when I was pregnant. Some glitters make me feel this way too. Sorry for the TMI but you gotta love pregnancy! Anywho, I can' wait to try out the Spectraflair topcoat on some other polishes! But in the mean time, I really hope you enjoyed this!

What do you think of holos?

Also, I want to apologize since I haven't been posting as much I used to and as much as I would like, but I can assure you once summer classes are over, I will be posting much more often.


Don't forget to check out the Twinsies' holo polish posts! I bet your wishlist will be longer after...

  14. I actually love big, flashy holos, but this is such a pretty, subtle one! A lot of holos look all faded and flat when they're not being sparkly in the light, but this is still a nice, rich silver-grey, even when it's relaxing. ;)
