Let's Ring The New Year in Right

One minute to midnight, one minute to go.

Thank you Irving Berlin, for capturing that hope and excitement.

I think a party polish has to both please, survive the night and surprise you a bit.

Gosh Holographic fits the bill.

It is a knockout.

Two coats over a matte base. I have Borghese Perfetto, a smudge corrector that is actually great over holos because it is very thin.

Let me explain with some ascii art.

Holo has all this light coming off of it.

\\\\\\\\\  <- holo reflection
--------- <- nail

But a top coat will add more depth and mess with that light.

\\\\\\\\\\\ <- holo reflection
=|=|=|=|= <- top coat with light going through it.
---------- <- nail

Thick top coat will change the way the light refracts.

I know, I hate ascii art, too.

Shall we see some more pictures?

It was impossible not to take a good photo.

Even in lower light it has a luminous glow.

Happy 2016!

Thank you for reading my little nail polish journal!
