A long time ago I did a swap with 2 lovely ladies and they also put in some Spectraflair. I had to look it up because I’m not really into nail stuff other than pretty nailpolishes. But as it turns out, this awesome powder turns nailpolish into holographic nailpolish. And I do love me some holo polishes!
I wanted to try it with a black nailpolish. I have some polishes that claim to be a black holo but in reality they always turn out to be a grey, or at best dark grey, holographic polish instead of black.
In my last blogposts I showed you 2 of the chameleon nailpolishes from Hema, but those aren’t the only limited edition nailpolishes they have in store right now. There’s also a holographic line. And I do love me some sparkly holo’s.
I only bought the one colour I thought was most interesting, because it’s quite dark. It’s called Holographic Bordeaux.
I read about the new Hema Chameleon nail polishes. There are 6 variations and I’m a total sucker for duochrome nail polishes so I really, really wanted to have some of them. In the end I bought 2 because I first wanted to try them out. I figured I could always buy more if I really like them.
I don’t do a lot of nail polish swatches because my nails are not that long but then I realised: I don’t have a problem with that. So why should you? It’s about the colour that I want to show you, not about my nails. So I sat in my garden and swatched my butt off.
Here’s the first polish I really wanted to show you: Hema Chameleon Cobalt. A true cobalt blue, so pretty!
When I was still blogging for Bloggin’ Beauties I did a blogpost about all the Golden Rose Scale Effect nailpolishes. That blogpost was very popular but now that we’ve taken Bloggin’ Beauties down permanently, I figured I could do another blogpost like it, just to help you make a choice between all the flakie goodness.
The thing is: Golden Rose has 15 different Scale Effect polishes which we also know as flake nail polishes. The first time I saw a flake nail polish it was Gosh Rainbow, but then I saw these from Golden Rose and I completely fell in love because are available in different colours! I got these from Enchantra and I’m still crazy about them. I think I can easily say these are my favourite topcoats of all time.
What I didn’t know was that some of the flakes are actually exactly the same but the polish they’re in has a slightly different colour. Because of the different polish colour a lot of people thing the effect will be different but sadly, it really isn’t. The colour of the polish is so sheer that it doesn’t add anything to the effect. So if you don’t want to buy the same polishes, just look at the swatches that I made and you can make a good decision of which ones you like most.
I swatched over black nailpolish because that’s how you can spot the colours of the flakes best.
