Oh Mon Dieu Part Deux - Fruit & Golden Oldie Thursday - holo

Hi all!

During the month of July the Oh Mon Dieu Part Deux (OMD2) Nail Art Challenge is hosted by Brijit from Brijits Digits, Jacqui from Craftynail, Jemma from Eeeek! Nail Polish! and Lindsay from Nail That Accent!. There are awesome prizes to be won just for joining up, no judging or voting involved! For more information how to enter read this page.

Again combining two challenges. Fruit for OMD2 and holo for GOT. My first proper holographic polishes are nowhere near over a year old, so I couldn't use any ILNP's. So I grabbed my oldest "holo" polishes to create today's mani.

Today's lovelies:
  • W7 - 28 Black
  • HEMA - 55 Holographic Purple
  • Catrice - 740 King Of Greens
  • Miss Helen - unknown

I started with a black base. On my index and little finger I added one coat of the holo topper I've had for years. It does sparkle! On my other nails I used a dotting tool to add grapes. The purple holo is not holo at all in my opinion, perhaps a tiny tiny bit. I added leaves with King Of Greens and then added details with black and a tiny nail art brush. Topped it with G&G HK Girl top coat as always.

I'm very happy with my grapes, they do look yummy!

Do you own any polishes that don't live up to the name they got, like this "holographic" purple I used? Let me know!
