With holo madness making the rounds again, I decided to break out my China Glaze Wireless Holographic topcoat. I always like it when I use it, but for some reason, I always forget how much I like it until I use it again. I should really bust it out more!
I also took this opportunity to test out a polish that I had actually gotten for Konading, China Glaze Awaken. This colour is so gorgeous, I couldn't resist trying it out as a mani. It's so sophisticated and lovely. Sadly, it did not play nicely with my basecoat (bubbling grrr), so the only picture I have of it before my layering experiment is one that doesn't really show the colour much. I apologize!
I decided to use my WHT, but I wanted to see if I could force it to make its own linear holo look by using multiple layers. I stopped at two because the layers were taking ages to dry (I didn't use a topcoat at all through this process because I didn't want to lose any holo effect) but maybe three would've been the sweet spot? Who knows? It was gorgeous anyway, just not what I had been hoping for.
Yeah. Sparkly and gorgeous, but not quite what I was hoping for. Oh well! You win some and lose some or whatever that expression is, right? I have true holos on their way to me in the mail and I can't WAIT to get them!
What do you guys think? I wish there was a topcoat that would give me a linear holo on every single mani EVER.
Thanks for reading!
