China Glaze Infra Red
Today's NOTD is China Glaze Infra Red from the 2013 Holographic Collection. I've 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, I've 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. The jury is still out on that one. Would you add the extra lines?
Thanks for stopping by and as always, Happy polishing!
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 :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Liesl! I have a variation of this mani in my head that I need to try with a different polish from this collection.Delete
Ooh, which one?? Is it Strap On Your Moonboots? I adore that one :)Delete
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.Delete
Very pretty. I picked this one up a few weeks ago but have not tried it yet. Looks great on you!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I have a weakness for deep rich pink polishes. When I was younger it was the only color I would buy.Delete
This is so pretty! Love it :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Lisa. Im pretty proud of how this turned out. I even added an extra layer of top coat today to keep it looking nice.Delete
I love the elegant art!ReplyDelete
