I used to feel guilty using holos as a base for nail art because they're just too pretty to cover up! Now, I realize that their special holo and other properties, like the green shimmer in Elevation Polish Gobi, can add a beautiful, subtle effect to nail art.
Even when the shimmer isn't catching the light, Gobi is still an interesting camel/neutral color.
I used Colors by Llarowe Burnt Sugar to make some different-sized dots all over the place.
Then, I went back with Gobi and made some dots inside the dots. It wasn't intentional, but I think it looks a bit like leopard print!
See? That green shimmer still comes through. Gorgeous!
Do you love holos with shimmer, too? What do you think about using them for nail art?
