Holy buckets! So cute appifanie. I did not know you could polish your nails when short, but that looks so good. I have not painted my nails since I was 10, this may have inspired me.

for some reason, zoya doesn't classify electra as a holo... um.

Yes, that's totally holographic glitter. Another example is Techno:

Basically anything that shifts to a variety of rainbow colors is holographic. One of my favorites is ORLY's Rock Solid, and a lot of the A England polishes are subtle holos.

I actually can't find the silver CG holo polish that I know I have, so it looks like my baby pink Color Club holo, A England, or glitter!

The only holo I own is GOSH's one and it's awful to apply.

I just got a compliment on the bus for how rainbow-sparkly-pretty my outer space nails are in the sunlight.

jean do it! i don't let my nails grow too long because long nails creep me out somehow. but i let them get a little longer and then I cut them off and start over, or else i just start biting and tearing.

This thread is so great! I've been following along and not posting, but it has helped me use some of my forgotten colors. And that Sparkling Garbage is amazing!

I really want to get Sparkling Garbage. Mostly for the name...

Sally's sells Orly, right?

They're hella chipped now, but i'm wearing Halo-graphic by Color Club. The holo effect is pretty strong, and when you can't see it the color itself is a really pretty pink. Obviously not my picture:

Ditto!

I forgot to do berry last week so I went with a berry-ish holo/prismatic polish: 2 coats of Orly Miss Conduct with Ulta3 Twinkle Toes over the top

For this upcoming week I was thinking untried polishes. Since I always buy polish in sales I have quite a few that I know I haven't worn yet.

Oh that's easy! I have been buying polish since the challenge started and there are a bunch I haven't gotten to. The only hard part will be choosing.

Unused is a good idea! I know I have a couple that I haven't tried yet.

Here's mine - China Glaze Altered Reality. I really like it!

Edit - these photos always make me realize I have freakishly long fingers.
