HAPPY HOLO DAY!

Several blogger friends and I decided to do a HOLO Day and today is that day!  Woohoo!
So the objective was very simple-Use holographic polishes in your manicure.  I decided to go with my favorite-A England.  I also decided to do a water marble!  I did both hands differently, so you let me know which one you liked best!  Here are the lovely A Englands I used...
I had been wanting to test my holos for awhile to see if they were water marble friendly.  On my right hand I chose to use St. George, Bridal Veil, and Princess Sabra.
I was too lazy to use a base coat, but I SHOULD HAVE!  I should have put a coat of Princess Sabra and the colors would have really popped.
I still liked how it turned out, but thought I might be able to do better on my left hand!
On my left hand, I used Lady of the Lake, Tristam, Bridal Veil, and St. George.  I still did not use a base coat and I really should have. LESSON LEARNED.
It turns out that Lady of the Lake and Tristam did not marble well. They just did not show up as well as Bridal Veil and St George!
It just goes to show that it is really up to the individual polish whether or not it will cooperate with water marbling. I still liked this hand, but I really think the other hand looked better! In retrospect, I would have laid a base coat down and then used St. George and Bridal Veil alone. THAT would have been crazy!
