Sometimes I find color combinations that are really exciting, easy to do, and versatile. I franken colors sometimes out of 5+ colors, but things tend to get muddy. But what I found today can be done in as little as two colors. Excuse the nail polish all over my hands- I was frankening all day!
Check this out:
These were made with China Glaze GR8, which is a gold holo glitter.
This is GR8 by itself.
It’s a kind of warm gold with gold holo sparkle. Adding it to dark colors gives the sparkliest results. I found that a ratio of half color to half GR8 works the best. Bear in mind that the GR8 will add a yellowish tint to the base color- blue will turn slightly green, red will turn slightly orange, etc.
From left to right: Medium orange creme + GR8, Orly Star of Bombay (navy blue creme with slight shimmer)+ GR8, medium purple creme + GR8, China Glaze Red Curl Girl + GR8. These colors are really holographic, especially in the light.
But wait! There’s more!
Left to right: Medium pink creme + GR8, Color Club Explosive + GR8, deep purple creme + GR8, medium green creme +GR8.
All nails are half base color and half GR8.
There is also some silver holos from China Glaze too, but I’m going to try those later. I think these will make a nice pallette of jewel-like fall tones. The silver glitter will probably make a cool tone, better for spring-like pastels. I’ll be sure to franken some of those, but this is about all the glitter I can handle for one day!
