Gradient Linear Holographic Fun!

Hey everyone!!  Yesterday was an awesome nail mail day, thanks to Llarowe!  One of these bits of awesomeness was HITS Hefesto - a linear holographic top coat that turns any polish into a linear!  Anyone who knows me knows I'm a linear lunatic!  So, after a few minutes of thought, my eyebrows looked a little something like this: ~_^


I started with two coats of HITS Demeter, a fun orange holo.


I needed a polish that would be a good go-between for orange and red, so I sponged on China Glaze Riveting for a gradient effect.


I then sponged on HITS Ares on the lower portion of my nail.


For an all over gradient linear look, I then applied one coat of HITS Hefesto!


While it is said that top coats cut down on the linear holo strength, I did finish with one coat of SV, since I had so many coats of polish on.  (The dry time would have been more than considerable without it!)  I honestly did not notice a change after applying my top coat.


I am thrilled with the end result of this!


I cannot wait to see this out in the sunlight, although the sunshine has not paid Atlanta a proper visit all week! But, hey, did that stop me?  No!  Should it have?  Probably!  Hahaha


I hope you enjoy!!!!!
Happy Painting!!!

Colors: HITS Demeter, Ares, and Hefesto, China Glaze Riveting
