The first is Beyond, a dark gray/black linear holo from the Color Club 2013 Halo Hues collection. I like the CC holo polishes a lot; all of the ones I have are strong linear holos. I like scattered holos and all, but my faves are the linear holos. To me Beyond looks a little more dark gray than black in indoor light, and the holo isn't too noticeable, but take it outside in sunlight and wham! Holy holo Batman! Unfortunately the sun wasn't playing nicely with me today, so I resorted to using flash too. All photos are two coats of Beyond over Zoya Anchor and with a coat of HK Girl on top.
The second polish I have to show is actually still a work in progress. I am still on a quest to find a perfect red holo. I know there are some reds out there, I just have not fallen in love with any of them yet. So in the meantime I frankened myself one. Unfortunately at the moment it photographs more pink than it actually is, and I need to do a little more tweaking. But here is the most recent version.
The holo isn't as strong as the Color Clubs, but I am getting there. :o)
So, have you had a polish in your head that you couldn't find so you frankened it? What was it, and how did it come out? Feel free to tell me about your experiences searching and frankening too.
