Boosting the signal.
Raphaelle, the creative genius behind Digital Nails, has become one of my favorite polish creators not just for her amazing polishes but also her amazing personality. On June 21st, she is participating in The Longest Day, an event to honor the strength, passion and endurance of those facing Alzheimer's disease. From sunrise to sunset, she will be singing karaoke to raise awareness and funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
On her personal Facebook page, she told her friends that she would gladly make a custom nail polish, not to be sold in her store, for anyone that donated $35 to her team fundraiser. I immediately signed up of course.
I gave her the following notes - I love purple, coral and silver polishes - don't love gold/yellow, blues or greens. My favorite finish is either holographic or glitter and least favorite is pearl. I love shape glitter but please no butterfly glitter and the more opaque the polish, the better.
A few days later, this beauty came in the mail. Holy shrimp! is an opaque one coater coral holographic polish and I LOVE it. I used a base of Cult Nails Get It On, 1 coat of polish and topped it with Digital Nails Ain't Nobody Got Time For That.
To make sure I had opaqueness in one coat, we had to sacrifice a bit of the holo but I'm still very happy with it. In the sun, the holo peeked out to play.
I really love this in the shade - coral, the shimmer look from the holographic particles. Fantastic.
Finally indoors with indirect light - I couldn't stay still enough to get a sharp photo so it looks a bit blurry but it's still amazing.
