Techniques for creating a Holographic Manicure

First of all, you need to prepare manicure tools for the manicure process. To create perfect holographic manicure we need holographic nail polish, base coat, top coat, and hand cream.

1) At first, you need to take care of your hands and nails. Create perfect nail shape with crystal-glass nail file. Clean the nail plate with nail polish remover.

2) To align the nail plate, use a base coat for the manicure. If you skip this step your manicure won’t be smooth. Moreover, the holographic nail polish will highlight all nail’s imperfection without the base. I used Aora Base Gel from my Mirror Powder Nails Kit.


3) Cover the nails with holographic nail polish. It’s better to start with the little finger. So you won’t spoil the painted nails. When the first coat has dried up, begin to apply the second one.

4) When the second layer is dry, you can apply a top coat. Be sure to wait until the nail polish has dried, or manicure will be spoiled.

5) The final step, apply hand cream to moisturize cuticles and skin.

The range of holographic nail polishes is great. Every fashionista will be able to choose not only the desired shade but also a suitable structure.

I wonder, have you used holographic nail polishes before? If yes, tell me what brand you use and why?
