I used a baby blue base and topped it with two thin coats of Unicorn Bath. I love the name! Unicorn bath is quite sheer and requires a bit of dabbing to get the bling on but no biggie. It’s made out if large pieces of royal blue, white and holo hexes suspended in a very very light blue jelly base. There are also very very fine slight pinkish shimmer worked in to the base that gives this polish a very subtle bling effect.
What do you all think? I think I will try a pink base with this and see how this combo works for my next mani.
Thanks for reading and till the next time keep polishing! 🙂

I used Hits mari moon modern girl’s Cutie Pie. This cutie is beautifabulous!! Sorry my photos cannot do it justice but the multi chrome is really strong and flashes green, purple, olive and even fushia. Hits’ was a surprise as I really did not expect much of them. I got them from ninja polish when they had their black Monday sale for half price! Can’t wait to try out the rest of the collection.
I then used Crows Toes’ Cheshire for my accent nail. Cheshire is something that I have been lemming for the longest time! Check out the bling! No application issues here and no dabbing required. It’s made up of purple hex in large and small sizes, gold and tiny green flakes suspended in a clear base. Love this and amazingly it somehow reflects the green in the rest of the fingers when I take the pix with flash. Crows toes is carried by Annette from shop eclecticco she is having a storewide 20% birthday sale now!! Check it out before the sale is over!
Thanks for reading and I would love to hear from you!!

I don’t have that many blue shades in my collection cos I always thought its not an easy colour to wear but check out this glitter bomb! I applied this over one coat of light holo blue so I dont have to apply too many coats of Smurf Dance (saving it since its LE). It’s got an assortment of holo, Matt and bling glitter packed in to one neat bottle of polish. I can’t help but stare at my nails all the time cos it’s such a blingy and pretty shade. No application issues whatsoever, in fact I didn’t even dab any glitter on my nail. No fishing needed. Overall a must buy for all you glitter and holo lovers out there. I got mine from mei mei signatures and she ships worldwide. Hurry cos it’s a limited edition and once all sold out it will not be replenished.
Wat do you all think of this shade?
Thanks for reading and I would love to hear from you! 🙂

Can you see my holo holo holo

Standard

Hi lovelies! Sorry for the hiatus cos I have been away in Taiwan for a week long break ^^
Lovely surprise greeted me in the form of color club’s holos ordered from Harlow & Co.

Of course I had to swatch them pronto and I am starting with Cherubic. A light peachy-pinkish holo. My pics can’t capture this well but trust me the holo effect is A M A M Z I N G! Even indoors I can see double rainbows.
I then stamped roses on this mani to make the holo pop.

Formula is a bit thick so I had to apply thin coats. Actually one coat is enough for full coverage but I had to apply two cos I am finicky like that.
I had used nufu oh’s base coat with this polish but it did not do much to prolong wear as mine started to chip after two days.
Will swatch the rest real soon, watch this space! 🙂

I love the jelly white base. No issues with the flakies at all. Didnt even need to use the dabbing method. Doesn’t it remind you of fruity nougat?
I got this polish from the ever wonderfulmei mei. She ships worldwide except for Italy.
Thanks for reading and hope you like this polish! 🙂

Happy Sunday all! Hope you all are enjoying your weekend. Sorry about the absence for Holothon but I am backkkk!

Check out the amazing linear holo of this baby! Confess it’s my fave holo of the month. Even with the blah weather today I can still see the linear holo indoors! The brush works great and no brush strokes or issues with application. The only problem is the polish does not seem to last, I had minor chipping after cleaning out my shoe cabinet.
Of course I cannot leave it along and sponged on a combination of glitter gal’s blue suede shoes and hits dark blue holo.
