Today I have a very interesting combo for you all; a couple of weeks ago I managed to score a Deborah Lippmann duo from a HSN clearance sale one of the polished that came in that duo was Don't Tell Mama, and the other day I had some credit from Copious.com and a bought a Spectraflair Holographic pigment top coat. I thought it might be fun to layer these two polishes for a darker holographic look.
But first I have some pictures of Don't Tell Mama on its own.
Above is two coats of Don't Tell Mama. I have to say I was not as impressed with this color on my nails as I was with it in the bottle. In the bottle it looks like a dark iridescent teal color, but on my nails it looked like a very dark grayish green with minimal amounts of shimmer. I thought the color looked very flat and in most light looked like it was just black polish.
Next I decided to jazz it up with two coats of the Holographic top coat. The top coat is made from a suspension base with 35 coarse grade Spectraflair holographic pigment. From what I have learned about Spectraflair a 35 coarse grade pigment means that the pigment is very holographic even indoors, and it truly lives up to that description! It is so holographic and I am in love with it. I will let the pictures show you the rest.
I used two coats of the holo top coat, but one would definitely show a lot of the amazing holographics too! You can see all the colors of the rainbow and it is so beautiful! I cannot stop staring at my nails!
