notd: Nina Ultra Pro Purple-Xing

In my opinion, there are two types of nail polishes that, no matter how much you try, will never EVER photograph accurately. The first are neons (it's just ridiculous how muted they come across on camera) and the second are anything holo. So, when I say that the photo of this color (as well as the big gouge that I didn't even NOTICE until I took the picture) just doesn't do it justice, I really mean it.

I swear to god, I almost got into a car accident wearing this... I was just mesmerized by the sparkle! Sadly, it didn't have the lasting power of Caribbean Blue (where that lasted seven, this chipped at two... though that may also be in part to the different top coat), but oh, how I adore it. I want to make tons of little holographic babies with it.

Base: Zoya Get Even
Color: Nina Ultra Pro Purple-Xing (two coats)
Top Coat: Out the Door's Northern Lights Hologram Top Coat (two coats)

C. said that it looked like an eight year old with impressive nail polishing skills chose my nail color and painted them... but I don't care. These make me so ridiculously happy, even with the short wear. You can get Nina Ultra Pro products at Sally Beauty Supply (if you shop online, get $5 OFF orders of $25 or more. Use Promo Code 555202.)
