NAILS | Oooh! It's a Red Holo! #ManiMonday

I wore this holo in the hopes that the sun would come out today for me to take one of those epic holo photos where all you see are rainbows on your eyeballs. Alas, it is bright, but cloudy today in Vancouver so we will have to contend with the ringlight and my telling you that this is the shade Gamma Ray* from the Born Pretty Holographic Holo Series. I have two red holo polishes and though Gamma Ray is nice and juicy, I had some issues with application.

I am wearing three coats of Gamma Ray, but not for lack of opacity. If anything, it probably could have been opaque in one thicker coat, but I had some major issues with patchiness. Remember back in the day of NFuOh when you had to have that special sticky base when using holos? This reminded me of that even though I should have been able to use any base coat.

While the second coat fixed most of the bald spots and lumpiness, I applied a third coat of polish just to level things out. I added one coat of top coat, added some gold beads at the cuticle to two of my nails and called it a day.
