Well, I tried to capture the gorgeous hologram sparkly microdots that look fabulous in the sunlight, but my pictures are a fail. :-( I just couldn't show how fantastic they look. *sniff*
I am still sporting shorties, as my nails are having it rough this winter. Part of the problem may be that I am not the most self-pampering person, so I tend to neglect moisturizing and lots of nail care or skin care. You are correct, I should be more conscience about that, especially since I do a nail art blog. I try.
I used Avon's Celestial from their cosmic collection, which is supposed to hologram effect, but you can barely tell, even in direct sunlight. It's a nice colour though, and I thought it would be appropriate for this cold winter weather. I also thought it would be a great base colour for my new Northern Lights hologram top coat by INM. I used two coats of the Northern Lights as one coat just wasn't enough hologram sparkle for me!! :-)
