ABC Challenge: H is for Holo

If you're wondering why you're seeing another ABC Challenge post for the second time this week, there's an explanation. My time management has been seriously crap. Um, yeah, that's all I've got I'm afraid. Quick, let's have a look at today's design, I can feel the awkward silence creeping in!

Can you believe we're on week 8 already of this challenge?? Today's prompt is the letter 'H' and I went for 'holo'. Some time ago I received holographic nail stickers* from bornprettystore.com and thought that this was the perfect opportunity to try them out.

The sheet contains a variety of purple and pink shapes with sharp edges. Half of them have a gold metallic border around them. In the artificial light (or direct sunlight) they have a beautiful rainbow holographic effect but I took the pictures outside on a cloudy day, so you can't really see it. However they ARE holographic so I decided to show you a little comparison in case you don't believe me!

As a base form my design I'm using OPI I Am What I Amethyst from the Softshades Pastel Collection (swatched and reviewed here). I arranged the stickers in a side half moon kinda design, applying them close to one another to avoid gaps. Doesn't it look like jewels?! The gold borders did become a bit more glittery rather than metallic once I applied top coat but it didn't change the holographic effect...not that you can see it from my pictures!

    1. Thank you! I think they look like jewels on the nails so that probably helped with the elegant vibe!:)
