China Glaze Infra Red


     Today's NOTD is China Glaze Infra Red from the 2013 Holographic Collection. Ive had this in my collection for a few months now. All of a sudden the other day I had an urge to use it.

     Infra Red reminds me a lot of Orly's Miss Conduct. It's not quite as in your face and Miss Conduct though. Infra Red is a deep, rich pink with flashes of purple, orange, yellow and blue. The following picture is two coats of Infra Red plus top coat.

     The next picture I wanted to show you the more subdued side of Infra Red. Even without all the holo goodness I think it's still a pretty color.

    I wanted to keep my nail art simple for this. I didn't want to take away from Infra Red with an elaborate design. And lately Ive been reminded that simple lines or dots can make a big impact.

     I love how this turned out. I thought about adding a few stripes to the other side of the nail and I still might for an accent nail. Jury is still out on that one. Would you add the extra lines?


     Thanks for stopping by and as always, Happy polishing!

  1. What a gorgeous color! A holo doesn't need to be in-yo-face to be pretty, obviously :) Love the accents, too, it looks all futuristic :)

    1. Thanks Liesl! I have a variation of this mani in my head that I need to try with a different polish from this collection.

    3. No, Im kind of kicking myself that I didn't pick that one up. Its a color close to that one though. Sci-Fly By. I should see if I can still get Strap On Your Moonboots from Sally's online. I have a coupon that expires at the end of the month I need to use.

    1. Thank you! I have a weakness for deep rich pink polishes. When I was younger it was the only color I would buy.
