Fun with Holography

Well, Areej didn't last long.  I wasn't too surprised; when I put it on, I grabbed the wrong bottle and applied a topcoat instead of a basecoat, but I was too lazy to take it off and start over!  So when I washed my hair, it started peeling off in big pieces. Oh well.

Since the sun was out again yesterday morning, I decided to try out a polish from the China Glaze OMG collection, TTYL.  I had gotten three of the holographic polishes from this collection last fall, but hadn't yet used this one.  In the bottle, it looks kind of meh.  I'd thought it would be more coral, but it is more of a clay or dark brownish peach.  Not really my thing.  And it doesn't show as a very strong holo in the bottle.  But on the nail, in full sunlight:


Whoa, Nellie!  I couldn't stop looking at it!  In low light, it does look like the clay color, but in normal light it comes across as more of a peachy rose - very pretty. And when the light hits it . . . well, let me show you again:

It was easy to spend a lot of time looking at my nails yesterday, because I finally sewed Jewel together!  Yes, she is finished and looking lovely.  I'm hoping to take some pix later today.  I also finished Adore in the evening - turns out I was much further along than the 75% I'd estimated.  Yay!
