ABC Challenge: H is for Holographic


Howdy, everyone!  It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another ABC Challenge post!  We're up to "H" now and I had an idea to do something fancier than what I did, but, quite frankly, I'm exhausted, physically, mentally, and emotionally.  It's been a long week and it's not looking to get shorter any time soon.  That said, a great mani always makes me feel better.  And this manicure is pretty darn fantastic.  Without any more gilding the lily, here ya go:


What you're looking at is the slightly dimmed glory of Fascination Street by Cirque.  I say "slightly dimmed" because there was absolutely no sun today for me to get outdoor photographs of this loveliness.  I should mention that the "H" in this manicure stands for holographic.  FS is a strong linear holographic polish with a dark purple base.  This beauty simply stuns you in the sunshine and I highly recommend snagging a bottle from their website as soon as you can!  FS will set you back around $15 but it's so totally worth it!  I've paired it here with a bright purple Color Club polish (no name as it came in a set I got at Marshall's) as a base.


I'm hoping the sun might peek out tomorrow so I can get a couple of photos of this in it's true glory, but, as I scored 4 Orlys and 2 China Glazes at Sally's today for under $30, I somehow doubt Fascination Street is going to stay on long enough for the sun to come out.  So many lovely polishes, so little time!


Speaking of Sally's, they have a great sale on Orly, 2 for $11 plus I had a 15% off coupon on any purchase over $20.  China Glaze polishes are also $1 off with a coupon (found in their in-store circular) through tomorrow.   I do love a little retail therapy! 

Please stop in and take a look at the other gals who are participating in the ABC Challenge.  You can check them out via the thumbnails below.  Thanks so much for reading!

  2. Reached the end of my day and set to crasch but had to finish your great post. Fascination Street is so special. Thanks much for a bird's eye into that gorgeous linear holo. Even outside of sunlight, this polish is fierce. Still...I hear ya: enough of this wintery pall, already.

    Retail therapy is very rewarding. :)

    Happy Thursday!

  3. Winter can end anytime soon - we all need some sunshine, and not just for a day between snow storms. Beatiful polish - looks like a totally different color between photo 1 and 2. You can never go wrong with holos, can you?
