Spring pastels and holo. Erm..what?

Tell you what, I was in some sort of rebel heaven when I was making these! The typical spring pastels paired up with a bright red holo? Don't mind if I do!

The thing is I bought the star of this manicure, Miss Sporty Funtastic Holographic Effect, and was desperate to incorporate it into my spring design in any way I could. I can't quite get over how absolutely gorgeous this polish is. The holo bits combined with the shimmery red are very bright and twinkle like gemstones in direct sunlight.

I tried the paint drip look so many times before and it just always looked 'square' if you know what I  mean. It didn't have that flow. But practice makes perfect, right? Well, in my case more like practice makes it A LOT better than before. I decided the best way for me to do it was to paint half of my nail with the red polish and add the 'drips' with a large dotting tool. I painted my stripes with a brush because as you might know form my previous posts, me and tapes just don't get on.

Btw, sorry for the abundance of stripes lately! I promise I'll stop now!

Do you think this combination works? Would you go for something like that?
