Holo with a Jelly Twist

Holographic Nail Polish

I love, love, love holographic nail polish.  I cannot stop looking at it when I wear it.  I feel little to no need to add embellishments, which makes it a nice, quick application.  Really, I can’t find a whole lot of cons…except for how they all look alike.  I have a few Color Club holos, and they are different shades, but it is hard to tell.  Then, I had this stoke of genius.  🙂  Add a jelly!

Color Club Sally Hansen

For this mani, these are the two polishes I used.  First, I put on two coats of Color Club Cloud Nine, which is a pink/purple holo.  Then, I topped it with one coat of Sally Hansen Triple Shine Jell-ous?, which is a very sheer jelly polish, that also falls in that pink/purple zone.  The jelly did not take away any of the holo shine, but did enhance the color, especially when the sun wasn’t doing wonders on the polish.

Now, here are way too may pics.  Enjoy.

A little less light. Can you see how the jelly helps it look pink?

You made it through all of the pics!  This was a super easy mani, yet it drew as much attention as any other.  Love it!

Sally Hansen Clearance Palooza

If I had to claim a certain brand as a favorite polish, I would claim Sally Hansen.  I have never had trouble with Sally products, and at full price, they are still very affordable.   AND, if you are willing to be a little behind on the latest trend, they go on clearance all the time.  Yesterday I scooped up 17 new Sally polishes for under $9.  SCORE!

IMG_1763First, I grabbed the Sally Hansen Triple Shine Jellies.  From left to right I have:  Water Melon, Sea Through, Vitamin D-light, Grape Jelly, Jell-ous?, and Ice Tint.  I think these have a lot of potential.  They are not extremely tinted, but I think that could make them more versatile.  I used them late last night to make my watercolor manicure.

Next, I found four new shades for me from the Xtreme Wear line.

From left to right:  Gunmetal, Grey Area, Pacific Blue, and Violet Voltage.  I actually had nail stamping in mind when I snagged these.  They will be good colors for manis too.

Third, I found four colors from the Complete Salon Manicure line.

Left to right:  I Lilac You, Batbano Blue, Copper Penny, and Earl Gray.  This picture is not doing Copper Penny any justice.  I am really excited to use it for some fall manis, adding that spark of glitter.  It truly does look like shiny penny pieces.

Finally, I bought one from the Insta Dri line and two from the Satin Glam.

Left to right:  Moracc-go, Chic Pink, and Taffeta.  The Insta Dri I got for autumn, and the others were just cute.  (For the price, that was a good enough reason.)

I was really happy with my finds.  I have plans in mind for some, while others I just took home because I liked the color.  The jellies are pretty new to me.  The only other jelly polishes I have are ones with glitter in them.  I am looking forward to experimenting with them.

Do you love to find a bargain?  Do you already have these shades?  What do you do with them?

Thanks for stopping by!

Ta-Ta!
