Who needs holos???

Hi Readers--that's right you heard me who needs holos when you can have a gorgeous looks great in the sun and the shade duochrome!  I love duochromes Readers and more importantly I love the first duochromes--the Sally Hansen prisms.  Today I'm wearing knock out prism called Burgundy Orchid.  My wonderful polish wifey Lori got it for me for Christmas.  This is how gorgeous it is Readers--this convo could have happened to me today
Me "What seems to be the problem Officer"
Cop "Ma'am is there a reason you were driving so erratically?"
Me "Me?! Driving erratically are you sure?"
Cop "Yes ma'am it's as if you were constantly turning your hand in front of you to catch the light of the sun and shade--almost like you were staring at your fingers"
Me "Huh that's not ringing a bell at all Officer"


Yes that could have been my conversation today because that's what I was doing!  I had to go to the store for more cotton balls and I had a hard time concentrating on the road because I was staring at the gorgeousness that is Burgundy Orchid.


While duochromes do come out to play in the sun they really shine in the shade.  Look at this gorgeous mani!
This is the beauty that is Burgundy Orchid
With this gorgeous duochrome you see dark purple, burgundy, red and even gold!
Here's a shot that shows red
Here's how it looks in the light of the kitchen, a gorgeous dark purple
Here's a bottle shot--ahhhhh I love prisms!
Of course I didn't stop there!  I stamped over it lol!
I actually tried to do a tape mani with this and it was a HUGE fail so I settled for the abstract image on plate M64 and was not disappointed!
Are you dying yet????
Why would anyone settle for a holographic polish that only truly shines in the sun when you can have something that looks like this?????!!! WHY??!!!!
OMG SERIOUSLY HOW GORGEOUS IS THIS????
I can't stop posting pics of it!
If you don't have this color Readers YOU NEED IT!  I don't care what anyone wants to tell you about the duochromes from Ozotic or Ludurana the REAL duochromes are Sally Hansen prisms!  You can still find this one on ebay for crying out loud!
If I could I would marry this color!


What do you think Readers--are you a holo lover or a duo lover???


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
