Trying Out the SpectraFlair Top Coat...

A fellow member of the Facebook group Polish-aholics Anonymous created a holographic topcoat using the infamous SpectraFlair holographic powder and some clear nail polish. Mine finally arrived a few days ago, but I have been patiently holding out on using it until we got some sunshine around here. Trust me, it was hard...

I applied one coat over my existing Borghese Berry Confezione manicure to achieve this holo goodness :)

Feel free to click on any of the photos to zoom in...

Outside in the sunshine...

Just look at that gorgeous rainbow... :D

My only issues with this was that the SpectraFlair powder settles out really quickly and tends to stick together/to the bottle. It needs to be shaken for quite a while and still a good part of the powder is stuck to the bottom. I suspect it is due to lack of suspending agents...

Also, while I love the holo effect, the original color almost completely disappeared for me. I am curious to see how this looks by itself and over silver...

Thanks for looking!

  1. If you shake it less, more of the colour shoes through but it will still be very holo. It's kind of a fine line haha But you'll notice when you apply it if it looks super gray or not

  2. Oooh, thanks! I will have to try that!!!

  3. Ah, so pretty. I'd almost be tempted to thin it out a bit with some clear to see if that helps show more color.

  4. Pretty! You must love holos, they're so stunning. ♥

  5. Ohmygosh that is amazing!! Yet another thing to add to my wishlist :)

  6. Thanks for the comments and suggestions! I will try using less of it and see if I still get a good holo effect :D


I love getting comments and reading what you have to say! So don't be shy... comment! :D
