China Glaze Infra-Red

I have a pretty polish for you today from China Glaze’s Hologlam collection currently out at Sally’s Beauty Supply. I picked up three of these beauties and I will use the other two in future manicures, so look for Strap on Your Moonboots and Galactic Gray to come soon. I hope you enjoy the photographs, I am still wearing Infra-Red currently, a week later. With zero chipping.

The combination I’ve been using are my ultimate combo of products for iron wear worthy results. I start with one layer of Sally’s Beauty Secrets Moisturizing Base Coat, a layer of Salon Sciences Instant Artificials, and then two to three coats of color, and topped with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Anti-chip Top Coat in the red bottle. This is such an amazing combination for me. It’s exciting to me to be able to get this long of wear from a regular polish manicure.

You can even see some holo effect in my photographs. The formula on this was, as you’ve seen others reporting, thick and streaky on first coat. I didn’t want to go with Aqua Base on my first manicure with it, I wanted to be able to test out my regular routine with a chiptastic polish like a holo. I like the polishes I picked up, but I will probably thin them before I use one again. If you like holo polish, these are quite nice, but they are not screaming holo in your face like Layla or Color Club holo polishes do.

As for stamping, I thought about it and decided it was too pretty to stamp over. Thanks for coming by my blog and I wish you happy polishing.
