There’s no sun. And I still have two Pupa holos to try out I bought this summer. Well, at least I can wishful-think that wearing a holo will bring out the sun.
Pupa – Holographic No 081 is a light cool green linear holo. The formula and application of this reminded me a lot of the China Glaze OMG collection polishes. As did the stunning linear holo effect. Almost a one-coater and needing careful application on the second coat.
Actually, even if the polish description calls it light green, there’s a pretty strong blueish tint to it.
Here’s yet another one of the Misslyn duochromes from my stash. 🙂 This is Leguan. It is not a Peridot dupe, but in the same family. I’m pretty sure even if not a dupe, it’s pretty damn close to another one of the new China Glaze duochromes.
This polish moves from blue-teal-green-to-olive.
Gorgeous. In some lights it’ll be a yellow-toned green, in others a seafoam-y blue.
And, why, yes, I took a ton of pictures. 😉
I mean, so pretty!
Ok. I think I’m done with my Misslyns for now. Though I’ve yet to try them over black… 😉
This seems to be the autumn of duochromes (I wanted to say “fall”, but that really wouldn’t have worked here 😉 ) so I busted out one of my pretty Misslyns I haven’t shown on this blog yet.
Feast your eyes on Blue Planet. A turquoise to purple duochrome shimmer that’s pretty much amazing.
The colour shift is really strong and the formula is just lovely.
As per usual, the duochrome is at its strongest in low and/or indirect light… however, the colour is beautiful even when looking like a straight up shimmer in direct sunlight.
This polish pretty much slays me. I love that unlike most duo- and multichromes I own this is really opaque and I could actually get away with one thicker coat though I went for two for the pictures. 🙂
Hi there. My name is … and I’m a nail polish addict. I especially love multichromes and holographic polishes, but who doesn’t? 😉
So I was really excited when I spotted a “special effect” topper from Look by BIPA in a store in Austria. It kinda looked like it belonged to the legendary Orly Cosmic FX collection only even more complex.
It’s called Metallic Hollogram (yes, it says “hollogram”) and it basically looks like tons of green, teal, blue, plum, purple foil particles and microglitter with the overall look of switching between cool green and plum purple.
This is a stunner! And super sparkly to boot. I only wish that companies would understand what holographic means with polishes… I mean this is very multicoloured and definitely metallic, but it’s not a holo polish by any stretch of the word.
There was no sun, so I took another pic in artificial light to show off the sparklies. 😀 The light makes it look warmer than it ever is, the overall effect of the polish is consistently that of a cool shade. 😉
BTW. Here’s me. I’ve never been a shorts kind of girl… preferring dresses and skirts, but for some reason my most worn item of clothing this summer has been a pair of denim shorts. Both in the heatwaves and the cool weather of late. 🙂
I guess I’m being converted to pants. 😛 Question time! What’s your favourite item of clothing this summer?
