Holo Overload

Ok people-I have pushed the limits of layering farther than I've ever gone before!  Today we have a ten layer mani!  Oh yeah I said TEN layers! I don't recommend this to anyone who doesn't have hours and hours to sit patiently and dry.  I dented this, creased it and that was after hours of dry time!

The cool thing about this is the holo overload I used.  I also used the base coat I started with as my funky so you can see where I started and where I ended up. Are you ready??

First up, the silly bottle shot.

This is Hits No Olimpo Hermes, a gold holo, Essie As Gold as it Gets, Bettina Copper, Bettina Bird and Hits No Olimpo Hefesto, a holo topcoat.  What-you didn't think I was just gonna pile ten layers of the same color did you?

I started with Copper and Bird.  Copper is a metallic copper color and Bird is a stunning banana yellow creme.  I am in love with Bird.  Here are your shots.




Isn't Bird pretty? I'm obviously on a light polish kick aren't I? I then did a layer of Hits Hermes, one layer of Essie Gold, one layer of Hits Hefesto and topped it off with my funky in the color I started with.  Are you ready to be stunned?





Close Up

Oh yeah now that's what I call holo overload! OMG! I am actually loving what Bird looks like.  The Essie gold flakies get lost in all the holo goodness.  But I am impressed with this mani.

What do you guys think?  Should I go for eleven layers?
