On my right hand I applied my polish as normal, with three coats of GOSH Holographic.
On my left hand I used the topcoat sandwich method. I first heard about this method on MUA, and it was used to extend the life of matte or suede polishes.
Here is how it works:
polish, topcoat, polish, topcoat, polish
The key is to use a very thin topcoat. For this mani I used Color Club Vivid topcoat.
And here is the right hand. Sorry it is not the best picture, it is practically impossible to take a picture of my right hand with my new phone. You can see that there are significant chips on many of my nails.
So the next time you wear a holographic nail polish and you want it to last more than a day, try a topcoat sandwich!I was joking around when I took this picture... I almost always take at least one like this on my days off... I was gonna crop it, since it turned out so well... doesn't it look like an advertisement? =)
