The second mani in my heritage series is inspired by the Hungarian flag. I used Bésame Cosmetics in “Holiday Red,” Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in “Get Mod” and Holo Taco in “Wicked Potion” for the iconic stripes of the flag, and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in “Game of Chromes” for the thumb and pinkie. And what better way to showcase this look than a bottle of Tony Packo’s Hungarian Paprika!
Last Monday my mani was inspired by my daughter’s college colors; in honor of Senior Night later this week, my inspiration came from the colors of my son’s high school (maroon and white). I used Holo Taco “Crimson Void” and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Get Mod” to achieve the look.
I don’t think I’ve shared a full “skittle” of the Holo Taco “Do You Believe in Magnets” collection, so here it is…”Love Spell,” “Wicked Potion,” “Twice in a Blue Moon,” “Queen’s Curse,” and “Fairy Tail.”
This week’s mani, which is inspired by outer space, was quite a labor of love, and took forever to dry! I did a stripe of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Black to Black” down the center of each nail, and then did a stripe of Holo Taco “Twice in a Blue Moon” and “Queen’s Curse” on either side of it. I added a coat of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Girls Flip” over the whole thing for a little extra twinkle…I absolutely love how it turned out!
This week’s Mani Monday is inspired by summer nights and this Erstwilder brooch. I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Black to Black” with a topcoat of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Girls Flip” on two nails, and Holo Taco “Queen’s Curse” on the rest.
Not only did I get a birthday bottle of nail polish from Holo Taco, I also had enough rewards points to choose another free bottle. I picked “Lavender Syrup,” because you can never have too many shades of purple! I also did an accent of “Crimson Void,” which takes on almost a berry hue next the lavender.
I was inspired by our fairytale-themed summer school (not to mention watching Once Upon a Time!) to come up with an Evil Queen styled mani. I think Holo Taco “Crimson Void” with an accent of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in “Black to Black” is perfect!
In honor of “Stitch Day,” I painted my nails a beautiful, glittery blue using Holo Taco “Frost Light,” which was my free birthday reward from them. I think the nail polish is even prettier since it didn’t cost me anything, and it’s the perfect way to honor Disney’s favorite alien!
Finally, a mani dedicated to ALL the shades of my favorite color, purple! Starting with the thumb nail, I used Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Girls Flip,” Holo Taco “Queen’s Curse,” Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “Anything is Popsicle,” Nailtopia “Daisy Duck,” and Sally Hansen Pure “Laven-Dear.”
I still have royalty on my mind following the coronation, so I decided to use two of the three shades from the “Holo Royalty Trio” (Glamethyst and Royal Crush) for a kind of striped effect. I still can’t believe how pretty the colors are, and just how glittery the nail polish is!
