My attitude towards holo is YOLO…

 L’Oréal Color Riche: Green Coutoure and GOSH  Holographic Hero

Difficulty rating: 5

Polish Rating: L’Oréal: 🙂 ; Gosh: A+

More holographic nails, including a frankenpolish and the holographic polish that started it all. 

 L’Oréal Color Riche: Green Coutoure and GOSH  Holographic Hero

For this manicure I used a self-made holographic frankenpolish  made from L’Oréal Color Riche: Green Couture and GOSH  Holographic Hero. I also used some rhinestones which I put into place one by one with a cuticle stick and some clear top coat.

Green Couture is the same green from my 200 Followers Post! The formula before I changed this grass green creme (bordering on crelly) polish to a frankenpolish left a lot to be desired (which is probably why I wasn’t scared to play around with it). It was streaky, had balding issues, and was generally hard to work with. After adding some Holographic Hero to the mix, the formula has improved.

If you’re looking at grass green colors and don’t want them for mixing fun, then I would recommend skipping out on this one entirely. However, if you’re not sure about how wearable a green polish is for you, and you’re prepared to do a 3-coat manicure, then  L’Oréal does have a very affordable range.   L’Oréal Color Riche: Green Coutoure and GOSH  Holographic Hero

 L’Oréal Color Riche: Green Coutoure and GOSH  Holographic Hero Holographic Hero is nearly opaque in ONE coat! I painted Holographic Hero on free-hand, with the brush that came with the bottle, as it wasn’t too important to have the lines perfectly straight. The rhinestones are quite large and mask any tiny slip-ups you may make in that regard.

Having said that, though, the reason I rated this post a 5 in terms of difficulty, is because square rhinestones are actually quite tricky to work  with. If you don’t align them perfectly straight, it is quite noticeable up close — as you can see with my nails! 😦

What do you think? Are you as in love with holos as I am? What are your favorite colors and holographic polishes?
