Blue holo & Nail fails!

Lately, I've been having a lot of nail fails- with holos I've had shrinkage and had the black basecoat becoming very visible around the edges, I've had polishes refuse to dry and become smudge city- just basically hot messes!

I actually started writing this on the 25th because I just wasn't happy with anything I've done with my nails lately, but I decided I'll post anyway- especially since now I broke one of my nails pretty badly. It cracked in the corner and I tried to repair it, but it didn't really work so well.

Does anyone have tips on how to fix your nails when they crack in the corners?

The other day I took a picture of my nails under a blacklight and that was really the only way they looked decent.

This was when I was outside. I had decided to compare a Jindie Nails holo (Blue Ivy), a Joss Holographic (Carribean Blue) and on my ring fingernail I tried the blue Sally Hansen Sugar Coat color- although the texture isn't really standing out in the picture. I also put some Ozotic Sugar on the top of that nail but that also isn't standing out. When I was inside, I thought my nails looked kind of wintery- but not outside! These are some blindingly bright colors!

By the way, I'm still kicking myself for not getting the white Sally Hansen Sugar Coat when I was at CVS because now I can't find it anywhere else! Target doesn't carry it and neither Kroger I've been to even has the Sugar Coat collection yet.

You can see the difference between the colors (as well as the Sugar Coat texture and Ozotic glitter on my ring finger) much more clearly inside.

The Blue Ivy color is darker and is on my pinky and index fingers. The JOSS Holographic is amazingly bright and is on my middle finger.


  1. I haven't tried it, but I've seen a tip on fixing broken nails with a piece of a teabag and nail glue.

    1. That's actually what I tried! It usually does work!
