My one-of-a-kind black holographic nailpolish
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.
I wasn’t sure if this would work because if nailpolish brands don’t get it done, I seriously doubted a baggy of spectraflair and black polish would do the trick. But since I had the stuff anyway, I just gave it a try.
Here’s the result under lamplight in the bottle.
Seriously full on awesomeness. Ok, in all honesty: I did cheat a little bit because I also added some Gosh Holographic Hero to the black polish. Just to make it a little less opaque black. After that I applied about a rice grain of spectraflair. And oh boy, am I happy with the result!
This is the nailpolish under lamplight, I made these pictures some time ago and I didn’t have nice sunlight. And we all know holo polishes are at their best in direct sun or lamplight. When there’s no direct light, I don’t see as many coloured glitters in it as you can see on this picture, but there’s still some colour in it.
It’s not a linear holo, which is a bit too bad because I love those. But I’m still very, very happy with my own, homemade black holographic nailpolish.
I also made a holographic topcoat with it but the spectraflair always goed to hte bottom of the bottle if I leave it for a day or longer. So you really have to shake the holographic powder through the nail polish, if you want to get a holographic effect from that one.
Other than that I didn’t really know what to do with this stuff so I gave it to my friend Wendy. When I told her about the spectraflair I just saw how excited she was about it, because these days it’s pretty hard to get. So I figured it would be a good person to give it to.
I did tell her that, if she figured out how to make a really special nailpolish, I would appreciate getting some from her. So who knows, maybe I’ll get more one of a kind holographic polish in the future. 😀
Have you ever used Spectraflair? What colour holo nailpolish would you have made with it?
