My new topcoat

I decided to make myself a holo topcoat. Why I didn't think of this before is beyond me! I love holographic nail polish and I've seen enough holo topcoats. Sometimes I am far from the sharpest knife in the drawer, and this is one of those times. I wanted to make a few bottles up for friends of mine so I made a rather large batch, and I ended up with just shy of 8fl oz left for myself. That is a LOT of top-coat, the equivalent of 16 regular sized bottle of polish to be exact, so I think it will last me a good while! Here's some pics for you:
                                                   One humungous bottle of homemade holo
                                      Two humungous bottles(because one just isn't enough!)

                        A size comparison pic. The bottles next to a regular sized bottle of polish.

      A couple of 'before and after' swatch pics. Unfortunately, I didn't do the colours in sequence. Sorry about that!


So. What do you think? Not bad, huh? I like it anyway. I think it'll last me long enough to get sick of the sight of holo nps.......or not. No, maybe not!
Anyway, I'm going to keep this short and sweet, so I'm off until my next post. Stay safe, be happy, and I'll see you in the near future! Loads of love,



  1. I'm envious. Where did you get the holo pigment from?

  2. Thank you! The pigment is Spectraflair, I bought about 15 grams a year or so ago. I bought the 14 and the 34, and I mixed the two together. I still have a few grams left as it goes. I bought it from a lady on Facebook. She still sells it, but she now sells it in a concentrated base, as opposed to selling the powder 'as is.' It limits what you can do with the Spectraflair unfortunately. It's awesome if you want it for nail polish, but it's no good if you want to use it for something else.
