Like a lot of my fellow Reddit Laqueristas, I was particularly taken with a dot gradient mani tutorial posted on Reddit a little while ago. Having picked up a strong, gorgeous purple in American Apparel Imperial Purple, I thought it might make a good base to try out the technique. Trying to be a little different, I added the contrast colour using a beautiful silver holo polish called Prism Maker I found from etsy seller saban. The little bottle was only three or four dollars, shipped quickly so if you're looking for an entry holo polish, you can't go wrong. Look at the result!
I love the combination of the deep purple and the vibrant silver holo. What you see here is two coats of Imperial Purple - though you could get away with one - and one coat of the Prism Maker. The dots were created using the dotting tool set from Bundle Monster. You can see it here.
Check out some bonus shots of Imperial Purple on its own. Really pretty.
The verdict: I love this technique! Both polishes were great! Win all 'round!
This looks great!! :D Such a neat design and I love the polishes you chose!ReplyDelete
