World Compass!

Base color in Essie's Blanc with water-marbled OMG A UFO, Take a Trek, and Don't Be a Luna-Tic from China Glaze's Hologlam Collection.  Stamp done with Konad black stamping polish and a Mash stamp. 
I got this idea from the stamp itself actually!  I decided to use more Hologlam colors, because let's be real, these colors are amazing.  The background is supposed to look like the earth with a north arrow!  I hope you like my geography nerdiness!

Zodiac Holos!

Base colors used are from the China Glaze Hologlam CollectionPicture taken with a daylight lightbulb.
Stamps used are Mash with white Konad stamping polish.  Picture also taken with a daylight lightbulb.  With this light source, you don't get much of the rainbow from the holograms but it is much clearer.
This picture taken in fluorescent lighting.  When taken in this lighting, the picture isn't as clear, but you can get more of the rainbow look from the hologram
This picture also taken in fluorescent lighting.  It is definitely not as crisp, but you get more rainbows which is nice!  I have wanted to do zodiac nails for some time now, and I thought this collection would be a perfect fit! 




Galactic Gray

Base color in China Glaze's Galactic Gray from the Hologlam Collection.
Design done with a Pueen plate and blue, red, and yellow Konad stamping polish.  I am really digging on these Pueen plates!  You should try them if you get the chance. :)

China Glaze Hologlam Collection Swatches

I just bought this collection and got it in the mail today.  I absolutely love the colors in this collection, however, the holographic bits in here are not at all what I expected.  Very, very subtle holographic glitter, so the rainbow doesn't POP like it should.  
These colors go on very nicely and evenly.  I'll give China Glaze props for putting out a holographic collection so quickly to keep up with customer demands!  Overall, beautiful colors!

Strap on Your Moonboots
Don't Be a Luna-Tic

Take a Trek
Sci-Fly By
