So the story behind these nails… I had a job interview and did not want really crazy nails so I did a classic French manicure. After the interview I had the next four days off due to the Labor Day holiday here in the US and we had planned to go the Lake. Well I can’t stand to have the same manicure for more than about three days. Halfway through the Lake trip I got antsy. We had gone to the Mall and I visited Sephora. I got three new polishes. I got Sephora by OPI “opalescent blasted”, Sephora by OPI “Cartwheels on the Catwalk” and Nails, Inc Holographic topcoat.
I have a horrible habit of picking at my nail polish if it starts to chip. Usually it doesn’t happen because I am at home and can just take off a peeling polish but stuck up at the Lake I didn’t have any of my things. So when the color began to peel I started to take it off. The next day… dun dun dun… I broke a nail. So I decided to take them all shorter and start over.
I did a coat of the lovely dusty blue that makes me think of robin’s eggs. It says it’s supposed to be a green but I didn’t see green at all. I then put the holographic topcoat on top of it. When I got home at the end of the trip I stamped on it with my new Red Angel plates. (I love these plates, really cute full nail designs.)

I absolutely love the Nails, Inc holographic top coat. It is not a linear holographic it is a scatter but what it lacks in linear it makes up in shine. This holographic shows up in almost all lighting; Indoors, shade, outdoors, the Sun. It is so pretty. I love holographic nail polishes but I get disappointed when they are only really sparkly in the sunlight. I work indoors and I want some glitter at work too. So I must say this was a good buy.
These were done with Sephora by OPI “Cartwheels on the Catwalk”, Nails, Inc Holographic topcoat, Pure Ice “Celestial”, and RA 106
