When Manis Collide ...

Hey everyone!  I have a bit of a mash up mani for you today!  I was thinking about my Dipped in Deco mani and my Dragon Scales mani, and I was curious what it would look like if I kind of stylistically blended them together!


I started off with two coats of China Glaze Not in this Galaxy, a deep coral holographic.  I followed with one coat of SV.


I applied my striping tape randomly and used a wedge sponge over it to create a gradient with China Glaze Sci-Fly By, Take a Trek, and Strap on your Moonboots.  


Since I was sponging over a bolder color, I sponged on the gradient colors twice in a row before removing my striping tape for an opaque top finish.  I finished with two coats of SV for a smooth and high gloss shine.


I really love the way this turned out.  The gradient colors work so well together and seem to flash bits of purple in certain lighting, thanks to the coral below.


I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

  4. The art itself is very good but the polish if you hadn't told me it was supposed to be holographic I would not have known

    1. Yeah, the Hologlams do have a fairly weak holographic effect, but I just wanted to make sure I was accurate. :)
