NOTD: Holographic and duochrome combo! Layering is fun!

Wow, it’s hot outside. It’s sunny and hot. I like summer and sun and everything but a bit of rain wouldn’t hurt at the moment. Isn’t it funny how we always complain about weather? It’s never just right. It could always be … a bit better, right? :w00t: But today’s post isn’t about the weather, it’s about my manicure of the day. I haven’t posted NOTD in a long time and in a long time I haven’t bothered to do more than just paint my nails with one color. My Konad plates have been collecting dust for quite some time now. I just didn’t feel like stamping or doing nail art. I even didn’t paint my nails regularly. :shock: Nail polish depression? Maybe. Well … today I felt inspired to do a bit more than just paint my nails. While browsing the net, I stumbled across this beautiful manicure and was inspired to do something similar, but not the same thing, because I don’t want to copy things. I always want to do something that is “mine” and a bit different. So I started browsing through my stash of nail polishes. While searching for some fun holographic polishes I came across this beautiful sheer duochrome – Sally Hansen’s Nail Prisms – Garnet Lapis. And I knew that I had to play with it. And I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I just hoped it would work.

I started with one coat of Color Club – Wild At Heart, which is a beautiful deep holographic purple. (The photo below is an old photo.)

After a couple of minutes, I added a thin coat of Sally Hansen Nail Prisms – Garnet Lapis and hoped that it was sheer enough that the holographic effect and the duochrome effect are going to be visible (at the same time). OMG, I was right! It turned out exactly as I hoped it would! I hope you don’t mind that I included tons of photos … Click to enlarge them. ;)

  1. Whoa, noro, duochromski holografko! :w00t: Odlična ideja! Jaz sem za slojenje precej neizvirna, navadno mi je še najljubše da dam gor kakšne bleščice ali kaj podobnega. Enkrat sem plastila Zoyo Shawn z Ivanko pa je res noro izpadlo, na tist layering sem kar malo ponosna. :blush: Veš kateri se zelo lepo plastijo? Deborah Milano 7 days, tisti sorbetki! :yes:

  2. Wow, ful hudo izgleda :yes:
    Jaz sem tudi na holografskem vlaku (hvala Paroketke :wub: ), ampak pred tem sem pa uživala v kombinaciji zadimljenih modrih lakov z eno plastjo zlatih bleščic (Essence Into the dark + Essence You’re a gold mine)

  3. dobro si ti to iskombinirala :sigh:
    joj da, vrijeme nikako da na bude po volji… ja sam jedna od onih koja stvarno ne podnosi vrućine pa moje vrijeme tek dolazi :wave:

  4. Prekrasno i zanimljivo.

  5. Kdo bi se pritoževal na tono takih fotografij! Ful izvirno in lepo slojenje.

  6. very beautiful!

  7. Wow, Great nails with perfect color… Thanks for sharing and gonna try this one.
