Nailnation 3000: Purple Rain

Recently the sweet Marthe at Upclose & Polished surprised me with AMAZING nailmail -check out her lovely blog!-. Don’t know how to thank you hunni! *mwah*
It’s not a secret that I love to collect old, rare, hard to find and discontinued polishes. When I saw that Marthe included OPI’s Crim Sun to the surprise pack, I simply screamed… for real! Is your addiction that bad, you ask? Well, yes it is 😀 (check out my lemmings at my wishlist) Sorry, I just can’t help myself. Anyway, I’ll show you that one later…

There were also 3 creations by Nailnation 3000 in the package! You can find Maria, the star behind Nailnation 3000 on YouTube and Facebook. She offers a large collection of beautiful polishes, including holo’s 😀

Here’s Purple Rain, a lilac purple packed with lots of fine holographic glitter. The application went very easy. I used two coats here. It dries to a slightly rough finish, not annoying rough though! One layer of top coat gives it a smooth and glossy finish without (!) disturbing the holographic effect. The first picture is taken in sunlight which shows the holo effect perfectly. The second picture is taken in shaded daylight. Nice ha!
