Dr Experimentsinstyle wishes you ALL a very Happy New Year! He is celebrating in style with his home made paper hat and a cheeky cocktail – and a very seasonal red glittery manicure using Avon “Ruby Slippers” with a topcoat of Avon topcoat, which compares pretty favourably to Cirque’s “Magic Hour” The Avon topcoat doesn’t quite have the same depth of sparkle from the holographic chips, and not such a smooth finish, as the Cirque , but not bad at all.

The pic here shows Cirque’s “magic hour “depth of sparkle on the left forefinger, and Avon “opal” on the right thumb. (Less sparkle and catches on clothes a bit more due to the less smooth finish)
Have a great evening, everyone, what are you up to this evening?

Holographic nail varnish

Yup, I love holographic nail varnish. And this is just gorgeous. A real depth of colour. It’s Vesuvius by Cirque. It always needs a clear coat, otherwise it is too matt and it isn’t as long wearing as your average nail varnish. A clear topcoat really brings out the sparkles. But even with a topcoat, it doesn’t last that long before wearing at the edges. But I love it so, I will forgive it that. Cheers me up every time I look at it. It is a strawberry red with a holographic finish. And less than a tenner for a bottle of such fabulousness. I like it so much, I painted some on my door key. (Which didn’t really work out that well, tbh. So I wouldn’t recommend you bother with that) I bought it a while ago from this fabulous site :

sadly now sold out. But this Cirque Mink shade in a brown with holographic finish looks like it might also be worth a spin for a more wintery look. http://www.sallymagpies.co.uk/ourshop/prod_3018455-Mink.html
How about you? Have you a favourite nail varnish?
