Monday's Manicure - Red Holo NOTD

Currently listening to: Foolish by Tyler James

Good evening ladies!

Today was my last day at work for a month :-)  Unfortunately the next month is going to be spent attending college and studying for exams but after my exams I'm going to Amsterdam for a few days so at least that gives me something to look forward to.  And for the time being I don't need to worry about work-appropriate manicures :-)  Too bad I'm going to cut my nails right down next weekend....

The manicure I'd like to show you today is a layering combination featuring Kleancolor Holo Pink and Essence Cherry Juice:


These pictures show two coats of Cherry Juice and one coat of Holo Pink.


 This was the first time I'd tried layering Holo Pink over a colour other than pink and I'm so happy with the results.  I loved having holo red nails :-)


 Of course when I took these photos the sun was hiding so I can't show you the true holographic effect of this manicure but what I like about this holo polish is the "gritty" look that appears in dull light.


 On the second day of this manicure I made an accent nail by adding three black flowers with a dotting tool but I think I preferred the manicure without the accent nail.  What do you think?


Bye for now,
Laura

  1. I think the accent nail is to strong for this manicure but it's very pretty on its own :) Cherry juice looks amazing in the bottle!!!

  2. I really like that holo effect! I think the three flowers may have worked better in white or even pink. :)
