I started off with Milani Hi-Res and decided to try out a little trick that had been talked about over in the Polish-aholics Anonymous group on Facebook. I layered a top coat between two layers of the holo. It worked like a charm. I managed a couple days of wear with no chipping, even moving around set pieces and strapping someone into full plate armour and getting it off him again!

After a couple days I was starting to think about ways to switch it up a bit without loosing the holo and then I came home to find my package containing a spectraflair holo top coat from the lovely Lori sitting on my laptop stand <3
So I grabbed my bottle of Zoya Malia and free-handed a swipe across the tip of each nail, then I used a stripe of Barielle Lava Rock to demarcate the two.
Then I topped Malia with the SFTC:
Just look at that lovely rainbow action <3 I certainly am! I just can't stop staring at my own nails! And just in case you can't get enough of purple here's a photo I took of Malia herself back when I first got her:
And let's see that holo one more time . . . close-up!
