Layla Flash Black

I feel like my nails keep getting shorter and shorter these days!! Every day of derby practice brings a new little chip or tear and I have to file them down a little more.

But...holos look hot on any nail length-right?

This is 2 coats of Flash Black over my regular base plus a thin coat of the Jessica holo base.

Some people don't like to use any sort of top coat over their holo polishes because it can dull the holographic effect a bit. I have found that *most* Sally Hansen top coats don't cause them to dull. The one I have been using recently is Diamond Flash Fast Dry Top Coat.

Can you tell which one of my nails has no top coat on it?

Happy hump day!

HITS No Olimpo Atena

Last night was an amazing night for me. We had our season home game opener for my roller derby team...and we won! Our next game is April 7th so, I have about a month to recover. Well, not really because we have a tournament to skate in the week before. Lots and lots of derby this month!!

On to the nails!!

This is 1 coat of NYS Hot Rocket Pink (a great neon jelly) with 2 coats of HITS No Olimpo...and a little impromptu accent nail art.

These HITS polishes are very pretty and have a nice holo effect...though they are a bit sheer so they are best to layer over a solid base coat. Also, the bottles are tiny at only 6mls.

A close up of my accent nail. I was going for a tuxedo nail look...and don't think I quite nailed it. I need a different bow I think.

And, as a is a shot of my derby face for last night's game!

My makeup was done by the gorgeous and talented Bettie who runs Candy and Chrome Makeup by Bettie. Check out her website at

Have a great Sunday!!!
