That Holo's Super, Man.


For today, I decided that a marble design was in order. I wanted to use a mixture of some of my all-time favorite polishes, the China Glaze OMG collection, and American Apparel Hassid, of course. I LOVE the way that the OMG collection marbles, and the colors remind me of one of the most delicious ice cream flavors of my childhood...SUPERMAN!!! For those of you who have not experienced Superman ice cream, it's a marbled mixture of red, blue, and yellow ice creams, hence the name. The flavors are much argued upon, but the red is generally a fruity flavor, the yellow is either vanilla or lemon, and the blue? well, it can just be described as...BLUE. :-D It's been years and years since I've had it. (and I must say I'm rather craving it now...I wonder if they have it out here in Vegas, I hear it's a Michigan thing) Summer faces of children are adorned with blue lips...and shirts...and shorts... and shoes...and the pavement below....you get the idea. Anyway, to the nails... the thumb has a tiny bit of black where the holo bubbled and popped when it dried.


I used American Apparel Hassid as a base, with China Glaze OMG, China Glaze DV8, China Glaze L8R G8R, China Glaze IDK, and China Glaze TMI marbled over it. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat. I used the Hassid as a base because it gave a different feel to the holographic polishes. I'm glad I did, come to think of it, it looks a little like an oil slick, too.

I REALLY want Superman ice cream now, but does Las Vegas have ice cream shops? No, just frozen yogurt stores... *sigh* Anyone from Michigan wanna FedEx me a cone? :-P

  14. The blue is blue moon. and you're right...it can only be described as blue. I knew right away you were from Michigan when you said that, haha.

  15. Holo is a really good primer but were you able to get your hands on Holo2? That stuff has such a shimmering base coat.

  17. This is gorgeous! It reminds me of the lining in an antique book. Just beautiful!
    And I feel the way you do with Superman ice cream about Good Humor "Bomb Pops" popsicles (they're red, white, and blue too)- the worst thing is that they do still make them, but they don't taste the same... and that's painful...
    I hope you find Superman ice cream and it tastes the way you remember!!!

    Wow your nails are cool! Is this authentic like painted manually or you have to put on something to attach the artificial nails? Just curious about it because I work as a nail artist in our village and I need to explore on a lot of things. thanks.

  24. This looks amazing!! I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite like it... what’s this I’ve been hearing about Holo2?? Is it a better primer?? There is so much detail in the work... I’ve got an old idea but it never seems to fail... flags please. BTW I love the classic superman ice-cream!!
