Sweet Heart Polish O'Connell! over Sinful Colors Why Not

***press sample***


I ♥ turquoise so imagine my delight upon opening this package sent from the lovely Cassandra at SweetHeartPolish! It is described as a "holographic light blue shimmer polish" but it is so much more. Because it is sheer, you can manipulate your final effect.

I chose to layer it over a base of Sinful Colors Why Not which is readily available at most chain stores. I wanted to accentuate the turquoise that I saw in the bottle so this blue cream was a perfect base to coerce the turquoise out of this polish.

The final effect is a soft scattered holographic finish that looks a bit metallic and shimmers more than holofies. Yes, I am making up words! It would be fun to experiment with different base coats to see what other tones of the polish emerge. Next time, purple as a base.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. Please join if you like what you see ☼

If you are a VNL kind of woman or you have shorter nails, you can apply 3-4 coats without a base. The swatch stick on the right best shows the results achieved without a base.

  1. The bright turquoise color is so pretty, it reminds me of summer and the beach :) And the holo effect is great too!
