#52weeknailchallenge: holographic

I find holographic to be a tough prompt. Mostly because I can't seem to photograph it properly and it's more a polish than nail art... I guess the trick is to do something with the polish. Anyway let me show you what I did.

I started with two coats of Pahlish Expelliarmus! on my thumb, index and pinky. On my middle and ring finger I have two coats of Catrice good lack!
I then stamped a geometric image from Moyou flower power 22 with Born Pretty navy on my middle finger. On my ring finger I have a similar image but with a flower coloured in with Expelliarmus! from the same plate.
I kinda like how this turned out. I wanted to try something different and this is definitely not my style. It's very different to what I normally do.
I of course had to add a flash shot to show off how pretty Expelliarmus! is. I wore it by itself prior to doing this mani and I couldn't stop looking at my nails and playing with light shifts.
What do you think? Any suggestions on how to photograph holo's properly?

Thanks for reading!!


  1. That holo is gorgeous!!! And I love the way your ring finger pulls it all together.
    Oh, and if you ever figure out a way to properly photograph holo, please let me know... I manage to kill all the sparkles with my camera :(

    1. Thank you!! The only time I manage to capture it properly is when I don't try!
