Holographic Polishes 101: Nailing It

Operations associate, Loren, has a thing for nails- and we can’t blame her. We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a weekly slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related. Check back every Thursday for Nailing It, Birchbox’s dedicated polish series.


Some of you may be familiar with holograms already—almost every driver’s license or ID has a holographic sticker on it. The reason that I bring up the fun, 3D-style images now is that I’m seeing a trend in spring polish collections, and I can’t help but dedicate this post to one of my favorite lacquer effects: Holographic nail polish.

3 Easy Halloween Manicure Ideas: Nailing It

Operations associate, Loren, has a thing for nails- and we can’t blame her. We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a weekly slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related. Check back every Thursday for Nailing It, Birchbox’s dedicated polish series.

Halloween is by far my favorite holiday and what better way to celebrate it than with a spooky manicure? Here are three ideas that are the perfect addition to any creative costume.

1) The Bloody Mani
I wanted the red on this look to really stand out, so I started off with two coats of white OPI Alpine Snow. You can also do a nude base, which would be more subtle but also more realistic. To get the bloody effect, I used the corner of a sponge and dabbed it in Deborah Lippmann’s bright red My Old Flame polish. Starting at the tips, I lightly pressed the red onto my nails and worked my way downward. Once I was done sponging, I just added a top coat and mwahaha — the scariest my fingers have ever looked.

Guest Blogger: The Road Tested Gets Met Ball Reddy

This week we’re lucky to have Natalie Zfat as our guest blogger. As the co-founder of The Road Tested, a product review site committed to delivering honest, fearless critiques of beauty’s biggest brands on the road, Zfat is more than up for the challenge. In fact, she could do this sort of thing in her sleep. Zfat first got into the world of products and electronics while working in the editorial department at Rolling Stone, and now spends her time editing TRT and and working at New York events startup Poison Ivy.

Spring is the perfect time of year to try a bold nail pattern, and Milani’s Specialty Nail Lacquer Jewel FX is just the trick. Check out The Road Tested’s Met Ball red carpet look above: a base of O.P.I’s Big Apple Red glazed with Milani’s Specialty Lacquer Jewel FX in Silver.

Vibrant colors, elegant gowns, and sequins that sparkle like diamonds? A girl’s best friend!
