A Cosmic Gradient, and New Ellagee Polish Goodies!!!

Hi darlings! Remember those Avon Cosmic Collection holographic polishes I was so excited about? Well I got my order in: Starlight, Saturn, and Starburst! I was inspired to create a gradient with these as soon as I saw them. Scattered holographic sparkle galore!!!! Problem is that I failed pretty miserably at my gradient; it just didn't flow from one color to the next because of my quick application. We all have our off days! But before grabbing the acetone to nix the whole mani I decided to try my hand at some quick stamping with E napped. What do you think? ;)
Cleaned up with my lovely E.L.F. Concealer Brush and voĆ­la!

Here is what Starlight looks like on it's own:
I pretty much drooled on my hand when I saw this one outside, you guys. Drooled. The color is smashing and the holo is very vibrant. This is two coats (my usual base & top, also) of Starlight to make it completely opaque. It's pretty typical of a good holo; kind of a creme and goes on flawlessly. Reminded me of CC Halo Hues application, actually. I'm also really proud of this pic! I wish it showed more of the holographic effect, but golly that's a great signature shot. Now if only I can duplicate it. :p

So if you have stuck around this long I want to show you my nail mail from the last two days!!!

  1. I must be seriously out of the loop ... I didn't know that Avon had holographic polishes! W-ow.

    1. There are several shades! About a dozen or so and they're very pretty. They are actually only $3.49 a bottle and I might get some more. ;)
      Thanks for reading!!! :)
