Now 6th day, time for the Favorite Summer Color <3
Summer means sunshine, and sunshine means time for holo! I have several favorite holos to wear on summer, but today I’m going to show a trial that I did recently for summer. It started from brilliant silver holographic polish from Jessica…

...And then I added the diluted version of KIKO335, vivid marine blue jelly…

...Et voila! This is what I got. Oh yes holographic effect is reduced, but it’s still visible and sparkling underneath the juicy marine blue! I’m hoping to do this kind of layering with a bit more darker colors, but as it’s for summer, this brightness could be already good for hot summer sunshine ;)

Now check it out for other’s favorite colors! 100 people, 100 tastes :D

早くも6日目、一番好きな夏の色ー!わたくし青、それも冴えた青が好きなんですが、太陽が燦々としているなら是非玉虫を塗らねばならんだろう!という観念も持ち合わせておりまして。夏こそコレ!な色は他にもあるのですが、今回はちょっと自分で面白いことできないかなーと思いまして、

トップコートを嫌がる強烈玉虫の上に透明青を塗布

という神をも恐れぬ(?)所業をしてしまいました。……が、やってみたらこれが意外とちゃんと玉虫も出つつ冴えた青はますます冴えて光るという感じになりまして、やっぱり強烈に玉虫だとこうなるのか!と感心しておるところです。ぎらぎら過ぎず、でも玉虫の帯はそれなりにちゃんと出る、いい仕上がりになったと自画自賛中!
まあ問題は希釈倍率が結構難しいところですかね。うすーくして重ねる、というのが調整も含め簡単な気がします。

      I think this sandwich will work better on topcoat-friendly holos, but not sure...well, always not enough holos!!

    1. Thanks!
      I had empty bottles and mixing ball, so I used them ;)
      But you can dilute it using anything for temporary use, as dappen dish or PET bottle cap, and thinner or topcoat...

      What you need is jelly/clear polish which is also a bit HTF
      but it's fun to do :D

    1. Thanks!! I did with self-diluted blue jelly this time, other jellies work pretty well too <3
      One of my recommendation is color club rock candy...
