Heck yeah. I think I'll try the blue first. I'm seeing the bf later today and he lives blue.

Just thought I'd update that Julep deal. I got an email that you can enter the code SHAREONMAY and get the first box for a penny! Wish I'd found that offer first! *insert curse words here*

Go here:
Nail Polish & Nail Care Products | Julep
Then enter code: SHAREONMAY and it should only be a penny.

Ooooh, sweet. I keep looking at my results and debating.

Will they ask if I was referred? If so, I can give you credit. You can PM me whatever I need to give them if you like.

RCC, that link should be a referral link (if I did it right, I've never used any of those types of programs), but if it doesn't give me credit for some reason no big deal, I just wanted to share the nail polish love.

Layla Ocean Rush.

I did my left hand following directions. I used their buffer, and didn't use top or base coats. I did my right hand using my normal top and base coats. I recommend following directions, lol. My base coats made application very difficult, and my top coat really dimmed the holo effect in sunlight, though indoors they look pretty similar.

Application takes some work, but is better on a plain, buffed nail.

Outdoor overcast. It looks like a shimmery sort of matte.



Outdoor sunny. It looked stronger in person, but this gets some of it.







Indoor near a lamp.



So, unless you have a special base coat for holos, follow directions!

Trying this now. It worked and my total was $0.01, but it won't take me anywhere when I click "Place Order" after entering all my info. I'll try again in a little bit.

ETA: I tried again and realized that when I clicked the box to use the same info for both billing and shipping the site didn't fill in the state. Once I did that, it went through. Yippee! 3 polishes for a penny! Thanks!

Do I like it? Idk That's why I've only done one hand. Nevertheless, it was super fun trying it. I wish the glitter picked up on camera better.

Dammit! If your closets have not been cleaned out, than we have a problem. Hehehe. We'll have to work on that.

Other hand is finished! Now, what shall I do with my toes? Hmmmm...

Sometimes I honestly just wait for this thread to get lots of new posts, and then I get to go through so many pictures of pretty nails, it's the best.

RCC- Layla Holos are now bumped up even higher on my wish list. I want one so bad.
Fifi- You did an amazing job on the animal print nails.

I based this mani on the one in this link.
Nail Newbie: Purple Crumpet Spring Challenge - day 3, small flowers
Wet n Wild Garden hose as the base. I used a dotting tool to make the daisies. Sally Hansen Whirlwind White and a Sally Girl light yellow for the daisies. I wish I had done the index and middle finger at different angles. They are meant to look different, but look pretty similar. I think it looks pretty cool overall.

I bought the light yellow sally girl mini to see if light yellow would work on me. Unfortunately, it makes me look dead, and like I died of liver failure.

This site has some really cute stuff. It's a new blog so she doesn't have much on there yet, but makes it easy to look at her past stuff.

Thank you pedaheh. It was a challenge. I was having one of those days where I would get the first coat on and scrape my hand against something, wrecking 4 fingers. I kept doing that with the left hand. The right hand, to my surprise, went much smoother. Once I got it completely done, I loved it. I watched more videos last night and have my next 3 mani's planned

I love your daisies! They're so cute and happy.

RCC, I really like the blue. I'm a huge fan of blue polish anyway, but that's beautiful. I can't wait to see the other colors as well. I've been looking in stores but I can not find holo polish anywhere, and I know I've never seen that brand. I might have to search on line if they don't stock some form of holo polish soon.
