Hi lovelies. How are you doing? I just wanted to pop in here quickly to let you know that there’s a new video on my YouTube channel. I made a simple nail art with the amazing holographic powder by Indigo Nails called Holo Manix. I was dying to test the ever so popular holographic powder and when they released their own, I think I went to a holo heaven. In this video I am showing you how to apply a holographic powder, as well as a simple nail art made with it. Let’s take a look.
Nail powders work best with soak-off gel polishes, so that is what I used in this manicure. For the purpose of this video I applied a layer of UNT Peel-off Base Coat, so at the end of the day I could easily remove it without having to soak my nails off in acetone. In that case, I skipped the base coat and went ahead with applying my color. If you are not using any peel-off base coat, start with applying a gel polish base coat. Lately I really like Protein Base Coat by Indigo Nails. It’s a very flexible base that will protect your nails from breaking.
My color of choice for this manicure was a nail polish from the new line with Natalia Siwiec. It’s called Paris Blue and it’s a deep midnight blue. I will be posting some swatches of these gels very soon. They have beautiful fall colors! I applied one coat of Paris Blue, cured in LED and then applied a no-wipe top coat. I used Dry Top Coat Super Shine. It is very important that you use a top coat without the dispersion layer, as the powder will stick to it much better!
To create this simple chevron nail art, I simply applied the nail vinyls once the top coat was cured and then applied the holographic powder on top. I used a makeup sponge to massage the powder into my nails. I should just stop writing and let you watch the video.
I really hope that you enjoy this video tutorial. If you are interested in purchasing Holo Manix by Indigo Nails, please click HERE. The powder costs €9.50 (around $10.60) for 0.5 g of product. This may not seem like much, but you only need a tiny bit of product, so I think this little jar will last forever. Indigo Nails ships internationally.
