NAILS | Subtle Summer Holo #ManiMonday

I know, I know, it's not Monday anymore, but I guess because of the long weekend today is Monday for a lot of people. I actually have my weekend now so I'm feeling good, productive and also ready for the pedicure I have planned for later this afternoon. I haven't had a pedicure since June and although I won't let anyone touch my nails, I cannot be bothered to paint my toes. I enjoy the extra foot massage and for today's appointment, I added in 15 minutes of reflexology so looking forward to that!

I have posted a few times about the limited edition Cirque Colors Vice collection and after realizing that I hadn't used three of the shades, this holo taping manicure was born. Yes, I may have a slight obsession with using striping tape and YES, I have less lazy nail art planned for the month, but sometimes when it's all about the pretty colours like these ones, crazy nail art can be a bit distracting.

Nothing too fussy about how to do today's nail, I started off with two coats of the shade, Socialite*, a light lilac neon creme. I then painted half of my nails with one coat of Fame*, a turquoise neon creme. Both shades were super easy to apply with opacity that could have been a one coater.

Next, is adding the holo goodness with the scattered holo top coat We Trippy*, which has a formula that keeps your base colour true to its original shade. Some holo top coats have a silvery/grey base to them which distorts the base colour, but definitely not the case with this one!

Apply some silver striping tape right down the middle of the nail and then add a generous layer of shiny top coat and you are set!

 Most shades of the Cirque Colors Vice Collection are still available at Nail Polish Canada so hurry!
