How to pull-off the perfect holographic nails
The shimmering signature effect from holographic nails comes from microscopic pigments that contain magnesium and aluminum fluoride that refract the light in the coolest way possible. That’s why they look so sparkly and gorgeous: these pigments refracts light as you move your fingers, resulting in an irresistible shimmering effect.
You can pull-off awesome holographic nails with the help of regular nail polishes that contain these pigments, or with a powder that’s applied over a first nail polish base. Both methods are great, and you can even do them at the comfort of home.
However, for a smooth and flawless finish, opting for a cool holographic nail look done at your favorite salon might be the best option. The nail artist will choose either method depending on the design you want to create

But regardless of the holographic nail design (or method) you choose, there’s no doubt that your nails will be a sensation. This effect is trendy, cool and absolutely stunning, becoming a go-to option for many A-list celebrities.
