Man, I am terrible at getting holiday nails up in time! I always do a decent job of painting them, and even photographing them on time, but blogging them? Not so much. This time I at least posted them on Instagram, so that’s probably the best way to keep up with the nails I do, if you’re so inclined.
I’d seen a few Valentine nails with an EKG theme, and I loved them all. I love the simplicity, but still the romantic implication, but with a geeky undertone. Of course, I wanted to use some of my new holographic polishes I bought myself for Christmas, and I had a black that was PERFECT.
Of course, it’s winter now, and 9 times out of 10 the sun is not out and taking photos of a holographic nail polish is disappointment incarnate. I love my lighting set-up for most manicures, but it just can’t get the magic of a holo! But in good news, I figured out how to make my flash do it! Before I had only tried with the flash on my iPhone, which did not work at all, but this time I used my actual camera, and they are beautiful. Behold:
I’ve mentioned Chirality before and I still love her polishes. She does an AWESOME job at producing unique colors as holographic, for example some fun muted tones. And of course, a wonderful black holo, definitely one of my favorite nail polishes. This is called Soska, and I love it. And in looking up the link to add to this page, I see she has a new set, called “El Amor de Mi Vida“, which I personally think is TO DIE FOR. I love it. More holographic polishes in muted tones. So beautiful.
There is not much more I have to say about these, so just enjoy the pretty sparkles!
