So there was this time, at band camp,
when I tried to make a neon purple holo polish?
No, wait! I never went to band camp
& did unmentionable things with a flute.
I have been trying to create a linear holo neon purple polish.
Not there yet!
(more about my frankening adventures next Friday)
It was suggested by my polish pal Sarah Penny Pinching Polish
that I just use a holo top coat over neon purple polish.
Well DUH!, but where's da challenge in that? LOL
But just to show I'm open minded enuf for my brains to fall out,
I thought I'd give it a go & see if it would satisfy my craving
until I can make what I want, what I really really want.
So here's what I did...
Sparkly neon purple holo blingasm!
Da line up ~ Jesse Girl Wild Thing,
Gothic Gala Holo-y Goodness & Shany 15
2 coats of Wild Thing
Da only it had going for it was da color
& it's not like there aren't a bazillion other neon purples
out there that behave much better than this one
& many of those cost less
than da $4 price of this 10ml bottle of bleh.
(run on sentence much...yep!)
1 coat of Holo-y Goodness!
This bling fest goes a long way
towards hiding da defects of da base color!
I 1st bought from this rising star indie last summer.
Da bottles have changed, but not da polish goodness inside!
Cuz I can't leave well enuf alone,
I added green glitter racing stripes using
Shany 15 & my fav skinny striper brush from Essence.
(Da mani on my other hand used similar colors
& adding da stripes to this mani meant my hands sorta matched)
I sealed in da bling with a coat of Seche Vite & called it good.
So yes, adding a holo tc over a plain polish works.
In fact, it's an excellent way to have lots of holo fun
without having to buy holo polish in every color
from every indie & big brand out there.
Not that I let a good idea stop me from buying more polish!
At Christmas, my mom brought Ciri his own pressie
of a particular cat nip toy from a brand called Hot Cat
Sold by Full Circle Herbs in Oregon
using only catnip grown in Washington.
(so they're local for us)
This toys not only drives nip loving cats insane,
they're very well made & last for years,
even with an occasional run thru da washing machine
for hygiene purposes.
So did Ciri like his? I'll let you be da judge...
suck suck suck
nuzzle nuzzle nuzzle
lick lick lick
(I don't know how a cat this small has a tongue THAT big!)
chew chew chew
rub rub rub
I think he likes it a lot!
I have to keep it in a drawer when he's not playing with it
cuz they other cats will steal it,
even tho they each have one of their own.
More about storing it later...
Thanks for stopping by!
