Guest Post: Kerrie from Pish Polish and Polish!

Hello lovely people, the lovely Kim asked if i would do a guest post and of course I jumped at the chance. I love College Polished and the posts here so I feel very privileged to be able to post here.
Anyway I live in England and although we are having torrential rain at the moment, between these we’ve had wonderful bright sun! Sun’s a bit of a novelty here so I decided to wack out the holographic polish while the going was good. Anyway the brands I used for this manicure are not native English brands but you should be able to find them easily if you live in the US. The thing that annoys me about holographic polishes is the price tag. I know you pay for what you get but I am pretty frugal and can’t justify spending extortionate amounts on one polish.

So here we have ULTA own polish brand in Material Girl, a dark plumy wine coloured polish with small holographic pieces. In the sun they give a scattered holo rainbow effect that is so pretty. This is defiantly a cheap alternative to quenching the thirst for some of OPI’S original holographic DS colours.  I then used a dotting tool to create polka dots in Milani Hi-Tech a holographic lime green polish. On the dark base Hi-Tech looks almost like a green-tinged gold. Again in this sun you get a scattered rainbow from this polish.

I think this is a really cute combination and the added holographic element gives this manicure a  fun wow factor in the sun!  Also polka dots for me are the perfect summer pattern for your nails, reminding me of retro bathing suits!

I would like to say thanks to Kim for allowing me to post on her wonderful blog and that I hope College Polished goes from strength to strength! Don’t forget that you can always come check out my blog over at:  where you will find lots more great summer ideas for your nails!
And now over to you dear readers. What do you think is the perfect thing to wear on your nails this sunny season? Do you like holographic polishes? Are you willing to pay extra for them?
Love Kerrie

Special thanks to Kerrie for the wonderful post!
