After a few days of wearing Catrice Genius in a bottle I decided to perk it up a bit with a heap of glitter! I've gone mental with glitter polish lately. I don't even mind the removal process to be honest. Some glitters are worse than others and if you have a normal base-colour on I think it makes it a little bit easier :)
After wearing genius in a bottle for a few days I did start to like it but not as much as I had hoped from seeing the swatches before hand. It's good though because it meant I got to use some other polishes that I rarely, if ever, use. This manicure is a huge favourite of mine now. It was so sparkly and eye-catching. I think with a different base-colour this would be lovely for New Years eve!Yeh that's a fair bit away and I'll probably be sitting at home but still! I love holographic glitter so much!!
On top of the 2 coats of Catrice Genius in a bottle I added on one coat of Essence Gold Fever, Catrice Have an ice day from the million styles collection and Essence Hello holo. The pictures don't even show the insanely sparkly goodness that is Essence Hello Holo. I love that glitter so much. I've used up a quarter of a bottle in such a short amount of time. It's a gorgeous polish on it's own too. You'd need 3-4 coats depending on your nail length. It's so worth it.
All of the polishes in this manicure cost less than €3 each. I never really thought about the price of a manicure before but I thought it would be interesting to work it out. Really puts the price you pay for a salon manicure into perspective.
Let me know what your favourite holographic polish is! I really need a few more of them :P
