Topic Tuesday: Favourite Unconventional Summer Colours

I quite like wearing black polish anyway but in the summer wearing a holographic black is nice as in sunlight makes holographic come to life.

GOT: Textured Nails

I used Barry M's Countess from October 2013, A England's Sleeping Palace from August 2013 and A England's Ascalon from July 2013.

For these nails I began by doing a gradient with A England Ascalon and Sleeping Palace. This turned out to be a very subtle gradient. I then added some striping tape and used Barry M's textured Countess over the top of the striping tape and then I removed the tape revealing the pattern below.

Nail Polish: Battle of Indie Polishes

Last year I didn't have a separate battle for the indie polishes, instead they were in with the holographic's or alternative glitters. I don't have the biggest collection on indie polishes, but these are the ones I have acquired this past year.

KPT - Color Therapy | Ninja - Girly Floam | Hare - Why So Igneous? | A England - Ascalon | A England - Sleeping Palace | A England  - Ophelia | A England - Jane Eyre

And the winner is:
Very difficult to chose here, as much as I really like Ophelia and Jane Eyre in general they look black on the nails, which I do like. However Sleeping Palace is going to win this battle because it is a charcoal lilac holographic which is visibly holographic even in standard lighting.
