What a gorgeous day! It's been so gloomy lately that I almost forgot what the sunshine felt like. I wanted my nails to reflect the sunshine vibe so I decided to use a gorgeous new holographic nail polish that I picked up at my local Ulta.
I started with a base coat of Essie Mint Candy Apple whose formula I was not happy with at all. It had a lot of dragging and it was one of the fastest drying polishes I've ever used. I have other Essie polishes and have not had this issue before. I knew this polish was not a one coater so I was trying to do two thin coats. If I needed to double dip my brush for the side of a nail I was having issues with the polish pulling as it was already starting to dry. Crazy! If I wasn't applying such thin coats maybe I wouldn't have had such an issue but it was annoying to say the least. I do LOVE the color though!
After two coats I added two thin coats of Layla Hologram Effect in Mermaid Spell. I was my first time using this brand and it might have been human error, but the polish was loosening the base coat and causing a strange glopping effect. After my first two nails I decided to use a thin coat of Sally Hansen Fast Dry top coat before Mermaid Spell and didn't have the problem after that. I think this is one of the best Holographic nail polishes I have seen, which makes it worth the price as it was on the high side. I paid $15.50 and feel it was worth every penny.
Do you have a favorite holographic nail polish?
I'm still brand new to this so any feedback on what you'd like to see will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for checking me out!
