My home made pretty!

Hey everyone! Whew, painting the nails is one thing, but actually posting about it is another. Maybe with the colder weather approaching, I'll have less time for outdoor things and be inside all day polishing away!

I'd like to show you a polish that I made all by myself! Not from a premade bottle with eyeshadow or anything, but from scratch! My very first and I love it! I made it a few months ago, but I'm just now getting around to showing you.

This is a bright pink, with hints of blue/purple duochrome. This goes on super well with just one coat, but I had to do two just because.

This pic was taken with flash. The rest were just in my lightbox. This shows the holo effect the best. Obviously nothing will compare to how this looks in the sunlight. It's just sooo pretty in that natural bright light!


 You can see a bit of the color shift in this picture, as well as a bit of the holo effect.


I posted this picture because you can see the color in the bottle pretty well. The blueish tone really shines through in this shot.

I wish these pics showed the slight color shift better, but it's so slight that I'm not surprised one bit that you can't see it very well. Really, you can hardly see it in person when you know what you're looking for.
I love this polish so much! I've been finding myself wearing it constantly. I haven't named it, but I do think it needs one. What do you think? Any good name ideas for this lovely polish??

Thank you so much for reading, and especially thank you for putting up with my few-and-far-between posts!! I hope you enjoyed this lovely indie by yours truly!

  2. Wow! Isn't frankening fun? :) Blue and pink look so good together.

    I find "diffuse" light brings out duochrominess better - like outdoors in the daytime but in the shadow, or if you pull a shade down over a window that still lets some light through - anything very bright but filtered does it for me!
