Today I am wearing a holographic funky french over a rich purple creme. I used the Konad sponge nail art kit to layer three holographic polishes from the China Glaze Kaleidoscope Collection: Tickle My Triangle, Octa Gone Wild and Sexagon. I took an assortment pictures of this look showcasing all of the different bottles. I would recommend clicking on the images to enlarge, especially with the Kaleidoscope polishes. You will best see the color variation in the tips when viewed against each of the components.
The dramatic purple creme polish is a European brand, s-he stylezone, color number 464. This beauty came to me by way of amused polish.
China Glaze Tickle My Triangle, s-he stylezone 464, China Glaze Sexagon, China Glaze Octa Gone Wild.
S-he stylezone 464 was opaque in two coats. I can't comment on the ease of application since I was highly caffeinated as I did this manicure. Letting your coffee sit in the French press too long can result in a need for clean up!
I have a couple other s-he polishes to try that I won in amused polish's April Fool's Giveaway. I am excited to share the other shades with you. The package was so much to my taste I felt like I was receiving a present from a very close friend. It was amazing and I am so very grateful!
I have some advice with layering holographic polishes. Check the consistency and find the polish that applies the heaviest and select that color for the first layer. In this case, I began with Tickle my Triangle. I sponged the color over all ten tips. I then added Octagon Gone Wild, followed by Sexagon. The first color should be applied the heaviest and then the other two will be sponged on as accents.
I recently saw a different take on sponge nail art with holographic polishes at Nail Talez & More. Nikki used a kitchen sponge and accented China Glaze Midnight Ride with an assortment of holos. Gorgeous!
Happy painting, ladies!
