Yep, I did promise more non-nail related posts next but they're coming (I have a list and everything). I don't typically go for dark colours but this chunky holo glitter was calling out for a matt black base.
The matt finish of the top coat had worn off slightly by the time this photo was taken but I like the non super glossy effect. Barry M's Hologram Hexograms is one of my top 5 polishes as it's so unusual, at least I haven't seen anything similar. It also looks great applied more sparingly all over a sold white or lighter colour.
I applied 2-3 coats over the matt black (any finish would work, this was one I had close to hand) staying close to the tips and the result is multi-reflective confetti that's seriously eye-catching.
