Holo Blue Gradient

Happy Friday..want to know my I'm so happy? I'm done with all my holiday shopping...woo hoo!!!

Here is a great manicure gradient I saw on Instagram early this Fall, and I knew I had to try it myself. I do not know the brands she used for her manicure  so I "winged" it and used what I had :)   This was when  my nails were longer. :)

OPI DS "Fantasy", Milani "Cyberspace", OPI DS "Coronation", and OPI DS "Fantasy"

OPI DS "Fantasy", 2 coats with top coat. Deep blue holographic shimmer.  The holographic may not be strong, but the colors is GORGEOUS!

Milani "Cyberspace", 3 coats with top coat.  Light blue scattered holographic shimmer.

OPI DS "Coronation", 3 coats no top coat. Silver scattered holographic shimmer.

The holographic effect is definitely stronger in the light blue and the silver, but I think this trio is amazing together. :)

I topped all 3 with Seche Vite top coat and it did not "dull" the holographic effect. Some holographic colors, when topped with certain top coats, can have their "holographic effect" dulled, meaning there is less of a rainbow effect once topped with a top coat.  It depends on the brand  this "dulling" does not always occur

Oh how I miss my nails being this long. :(

 I have slowly been cutting them down, in preparation for the holidays, cooking and baking, and for the after Christmas shopping. :) They will be back to this length in no time, until then...Keep It Sweet!
Pin It!
