Mega Holo with Stripes

This was inspired by Reddit Lacquerista ReneeJade.  The moment I saw her photo I knew I needed to do this with my new Layla “Mercury Twilight” silver linear holographic polish.  (P.S. here’s her Tumblr)

The rainbow effect on this stuff is amazing.  It’s like a unicorn mated with a luck dragon and the magical offspring farted a rainbow across my hands.  The holo effect jumps off of the surface of my nails like a punch in the face by a fairy who screams erotic poetry and sweats the pure essence of orgasms.

What?  It’s got a lot of rainbows.  Was I too subtle?

Holo Stripe Right

Layla's Mercury Twilight and China Glaze's Liquid Leather. And a stupid car. We hate that car, right?

And of course no special effects post would be complete without a creepy Ray Harryhausen style stop-motion gif showing off the light play.  Ready to feel uncomfortable?  Here goes.
