Holla!-graphic


Day 53

So, I got China Glaze L8R G8R in the mail finally, so I decided I HAD to use it, I'm totally in love with Holographic polishes.. they're so preeeeetty! :-P I'm sad though, I broke my thumbnail while steering trying to avoid the idiots driving through the Venetian parking ramp... and it was all for naught. I was there to go to the Venetian Sephora to check out Illamasqua's foundation in shade 105, the tester looks promising, but alas, they were out. *sigh* I still picked up Illamasqua Rampage Illamasqua Rampage, a gorgeous dark green jelly nail polish. It's lovely. :) So anyway, since I broke my thumbnail, had to chop the rest to match :( short nails feel weird. Since marbling is technically different on both hands, I am posting each one. (Usually I only post the left hand, because the right hand is identical)

Right hand:


I used China Glaze OMG as a base, and used a water marbling technique with two other China Glaze holographic polishes, China Glaze DV8 and China Glaze L8R G8R, a teal and green, respectively. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Holla! :-P I'm such a dork.

  1. I like, I think this is something I would be brave enough to wear (and I don't wear polish)!

  5. Gorgeous! I don't typically paint my nails-- I work with my hands and I can't avoid the chipping-- but if I could figure out how to do that on my toes, I'd be a happy camper.

  8. I have the hardest time with the OMG collection for marbling, they just dry so quickly that other colors cant spread well inside them :(

    Gorgeous results though!

  9. This post totally inspired me to try marbling on my fingernails, even though I'm a spaz with painting them. I found a couple of tutorials on youtube, and it was so much fun, and really not very difficult at all. I have a new addiction. Love your blog!

  10. I like it, i have just studied Marbling today at school. i made some good ones with all the colours it was rainbow almost. but these looks so smooth and flat. some of mine had water bubbles on them and left over big gloops. good job!:)

  11. Wow, I'd like to show my daughter how to do that, because she is starting to be curious about all this kind of stuff, but I am afraid my hands were always so shaky I could never manage to do it.
