Wishlist: Image Plates From Random Sites

Thursday, March 1, 2012


So a few weeks ago I stumbled across a youtube video, yes it was a nail one: Making Holographic Nail polishes  with SpectraFlait. Well, it had the word holographic in it so I clicked it. And oh my, I felt  like I had won the lottery. After I was done watching that video a few times I started searching like crazy for other guru's or bloggers. And the more I found, just ended with me wanting to get my hands on this "magical" pigment. Finally I found a blogger in Australia who sells this by gram so I talked my husband into using his PayPal account to order      a tiny jar with 1 gram of SpectraFlair. And after 11 looooooooooong days of waiting it was in my mail box. I had some metallic monster beads ready along with a basic top coat I got from the drug store.

As the guru on the youtube video said I only needed a tiny dash of this pigment to the topcoat. And Oh my gosh, it made it HOLOGRAPHIC.  Finally I don't have to go all crazy for finding new holo polishes since I used up my China Glaze OMG Collection ones. I tried Nubar's holo's and they suck, sorry about the language but they do.... When you have to apply like 4-6 coats to get some holo effect on your nails, it's CRAP. And I don't have the money to spend $13-25 for 1 holo polish, not when I use them up in no time. Yes, I admit it I AM A HOLO POLISH JUNKIE......

But back to the topic, there are 3 grades of SpectraFlair 1500-14, 1500-20 & 1500-35. I got the 1500-35 coarse grade and the one that shows the holo effect the most, it is still super fine. And you only need a tiny dash of the pigment so 1 gram of pigment is enough for 8-10 poilishes. Anyways I love it, and I feel like I have found the pot of gold. Here are some swatches and then 2 looks on my nail. The swatches will show the nail color on the left and then on the right the color with the SpectraFlair top coat. I am sorry that on a couple of the swatches you can't really see the effect that well, I had really bad lighting when I snapped the pictures. And again I mixed some into a top coat from Wet n Wild, I will mix it into one of my favorite top coats later.
