Orly Prisma Gloss Gold “sandwiches”

I saw Orly Prisma Gloss Gold in Tran Design store and had to have it.

When I held it for the first time, I said to myself – where is all the shimmer?!? This is how it looked like:

After serious use of muscles for moving metal balls all over the bottle, it turned into this:

After I applied it over Essence Cherry Juice, I thought it to be a bit too much for my taste.

Since holo effect looks best in sunshine I took most of the photos in our backyard.

Base coat + 2 layers of Essence Cherry Juice and 1 coat of Orly Prisma Gloss Gold:

So I applied one more coat of Essence Cherry Juice, to soften the holo effect.

Since Cherry Juice was not sheer enough for the effect I was looking for – I tried with Essence Cotton Candy polish, that Maestra was kind enough to let me borrow for I while.

First I applied two coats of China Glaze Ridge Filler (staining makes it necessity to use something with camouflaging effect :whistle: ) and then three coats of Essence Cotton Candy polish.

This is how it looks with Orly Prisma Gloss Gold on top of it:

I added another layer of Essence Cotton Candy polish and took more photos.

Orly Prisma Gloss is also available in silver version. I paid 3,19 USD (2,4 EUR) for my polish.

I would need sheer jelly polish in vibrant color for the effect I was looking for. I would prefer red or purple. Do you have any suggestions?

So – how do you like my sandwiches? :cool:

  1. :stars: Love all the glitter.  I’ll have to try your glitter sandwich! Really looks pretty.

  2. I’ve been trying to figure out what the finished result reminds me of, and then it dawned on me- OPAL!

    It looks just like an opal, with fire shining from within, minus the “in-your-face-glitter.”

    I have to wait until Monday to re-do my mani, but my mind is reeling with sheer colors I never wear, but would be perfect for this look!

    Would you mind if I did a blog post on this, giving you the credit for the idea, of course?
    Either way, thanks for your inspiration!

  3. You’re welcome. I can hardly wait for you’re post. I just love experiments. :biggrin:
    You’re right – I wanted to avoid “in-your-face-glitter” effect, and achive somethig more subtile but still with a punch. :silly:

  4. Thx. Let me know how it turned out. rose
    I wanted to try this combination with Essie Licorice, so if anyone has the two polishes I would love to see the result. :w00t:

  5. I am a fan of holo topcoats in general, but the subtle shimmer you’ve created by layering it under another coat is so beautiful!
    I will be trying this out with my next manicure for sure…Thanks for the great idea!

  6. I prefer gold because silver clashes with my skin tone. Otherwise I wold be having silver one on my WL too. :biggrin:

  7. I just like Prisma as topcoat or non. I have silver one on WL (how is it called… Orly Prisma Gloss Silver or I like Nubar Angel in silver (can’t find right name now)).

  8. To jaz vedno govorim za računalnike … pa me še vedno ne poslušajo. :devil:
    Hvala za predlog, vendar je meni je še holo too much. :lol: Me veseli, da si našla kombinacijo zase. :w00t:

  9. Evo.. v operi mini deluje… sicer pa na moji telefonski uber cool masineriji bi moglo vse delat :sideways: .

    Sem kupila niti ne toliko podoben lak in stestirala s cherry juice in je uaaaau prislo ven! Cisto totally awesome! poskusi s cim bolj pikcastim? Mislim bolj shimrastim.. :w00t:

  10. Tamara – smo stestirali na dostih mobitelih, pa je vsepovsod pravilno prikazalo.  Nekako je bil dosežen konsenz, da se določene strani in mobiteli enostavno ne ujemajo.

    Micena – jaz sem nanesla 1 debelejšo plast. Če dam  2 plasti, je pa kar konkreten nanos šimra.

    Nati – pri meni je kar rozikast. :ermm:

    Bom probala nanesti Goldija še čez Very Berry in Essie Allure.
