GR8 is a yellow gold linear holographic from the OMG Collection. As with the rest of the OMG collection, the holographic in these are super strong and very linear. Now… I hate gold on my hands. It really just doesn’t look great on me. I prefer bronzes and bright colors. But it was on clearance!

Lamborghini Manicure: China Glaze Megabyte and Liquid Leather

A little something I did, inspired by a keychain I received in the mail. I wanted a black and green look. In this I found that I have two gold nail polishes. Megabyte and GR8. Which are pretty much the same in that they’re holographic blond golds. Which is not what I was looking for in this. I wanted a deep gold foil, or Minx chrome gold mirror-y… Meh. I was a little upset with the outcome, but I liked the concept.

I added a paint-splatter print using Konad m70. I planned an “oil slick” look. I want to try this again, maybe using a dark holo over black? That’d be cool I think. Maybe I’ll revisit this idea later and do it correctly.
