Purple Holographic Glitter Custom Polish

This week has gone by so quickly. To me today feels more like Wednesday then Thursday. 

Last October I posted a haul that included some holographic flakes. I thought that the flakes might cure my Spectraflair lemming but they didn't. They are much larger. I've got a comparison picture below. One of my readers asked if I had made anything using the flakes and I realised I hadn't really tried them out. So I decided to make a polish to show them (and you).

 3 coats

I used blue and red tints and an untinted lacquer base from Beauty World then added a few scoops of the holo flakes. It turned out a much deeper purple then I was going for but I like it. Here's a comparison of Spectraflair and these holo flakes.

    1. I tried to make a spectraflair top coat. I don't think I got the quantities right. Maybe try adding just a little bit at a time and testing after each? :)

  5. This looks amazing! I don't think my spectraflair would cure my lemming for this... although my Elytras might :)

    1. It does look similar to the Elyta glitter, I thought that when I was editing photos. :)

  7. I still think it's pretty even if it looks a bit chunky.

  8. PPP, I think they look pretty awesome... and I think these are the flakes used in China Glaze Fairy Dust or OPI Teenage Dream... I wanted to buy one. Thanks for showing this :-)
