Recently I hauled some glitter and micas from TKB Trading, and I decided to get their Nite Glow Powder, which is here. I wanted to show you the incredible glowy effect it has, it's really the most glowy thing I've ever seen! I hope to franken it into a nail polish, CG's Glow in the Dark was very disappointingly unglowy.
Look how it glows! And this wasn't even in full darkness!
Anway I also got some holographic glitter, thinking of frankening my own holo polish. This is the first one I tried (I haven't tried any others, micro glitter is really tiring to work with, it goes everywhere!).
I added quite a lot of glitter into a half empty bottle of The Face Shop's clear top coat, then added a lot of OPI Lacquer Thinner,
It looks absolutely gorgeous in the bottle, but how does it translate on to the nail?
This is my big toe.
I like it, it's pretty holo, but it's the scattered holo kind of effect, not the circle of rainbows kind that we all like so much.
This glitter was a bitch to remove. The WORST ever. Really! I didn't use the foil method, but I put the wet cotton on my nails for at least 5 minutes and held it down, which really didn't help that much. Not to mention the acetone really hurt one of my toes because I got a cut near my cuticle. Careless klutzy me- I rolled my chair over my toe by accident.
I'll probably try again with this holo glitter in a dark coloured polish. It'll be interesting to see if I can franken OPI My Private Jet (unlikely to succeed), but worth a shot right?
Does anyone know if, when frankening with holo glitter, it's better to franken with a creme or a jelly polish to get the holo to show later?
