Spectraflair & Silver Holographic Flake

Spectraflair Top Coat

Swatches are 3 coats over black. How opaque it is rather depends
on how much Spectraflair you put in your clear polish. I think it is better
to have a it thin so that you do not mute out the color you apply it over.

The other swatch is Silver Holographic Flake. I bought
25 grams of Painting Pearls from Custom Painting Pearls,
on ebayNow this is something you use for painting cars.
But they also sell it as Cosmetic Nail Polish Powder.

I would say this is a holographic glitter. I'm thinking it is similar
to: Out the Door Northers Lights - Silver Hologram Top Coat,
China Glaze - Fairy Dust and Cover Girl - City Lights 430 (or the
discontinued Cover Girl - Quicksilver 130). But I can't be sure
as I don't own any of them so I can't make a comparison.
3 coats over black.

UPDATE:
I was asked a good question so I thought I would post
it here if anyone else was wondering the same thing.



I want to ask if the Silver Holographic Flake dries to a smooth or gritty finish when you mix it with a clear polish??

  1. The Spectraflair is so fine so that one dries completletely smooth. But the Silver Holographic Flake is a bit gritty. Not like most glitters but a little bit. But I would apply a top coat on it.
