Anywho, onto the polish! I know that you've seen multiple holos from me and I feel like I am JUST NOW starting to get the hang of proper holo frankening. Here's my secret, you start with a jelly base. When I realized this about a week ago, I was kind of like, "duh Becca" but hey, now I know! Suspending your holo in a jelly pigment means you have far less interference from the base color. Anything with a white, black, or cream base in general tend to overshadow the holo. So if you intend to ever make your own holo, keep that in mind! That being said, this polish is super simple in order to try and keep it as holo as possible. I started with a bottle about 80% full with TKB Glamour Suspension base. I then followed it up with a couple of drops of TKB's Basic Red Jellie (remember, this stuff is super pigmented so use a light hand!) I then followed it up by using a moderate sized scoop of Wonder Beauty Products Prismatic Illusion Powder (which if you remember is a Spectraflair alternative. All the holo, none of the price. Woo!). That's it! I shook it up and created what I call Toxic Tomato

Now while I was able to pick up a good amount of holo, I still wasn't able to pick up just how linear this polish was. It really was eye catching! Swatches show two coats plus one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry (which surprisingly didn't dull the holo!). The polish self leveled well, was perfectly smooth, did not pool, and did not stain!
Well there you have it, Toxic Tomato and it is super easy! Tune in on Friday for a brand new franken! It's lovely and springy and a breath of fresh air! Hope to see you back then! But until I do, remember to keep it classy and creative!
