Here Is An Easy Way To Hack The Oh-So-Pretty Holographic Nails Trend

It's Instafab.

The ~holographic~ nail trend has been all over Instagram for some time, and it's honestly mesmerizing.

This look typically requires a gel polish and a UV machine, but a lot of people have hacked the process by using gel nail polish. I decided to try it for myself to see if I could DIY the same look!

Next, I took an eyeshadow applicator and rubbed the loose laser powder on top of the dried topcoat. I was honestly impressed how well it stayed on the base of the nail, even if it *did* get everywhere else. (Keep paper towels handy, is all I'm saying.)

Seal the entire thing with the topcoat and let dry. That's it! I was pleasantly surprised how well it turned out. I'm sure it would look more *holographic* with the UV machine, but this little hack wasn't bad at all.

As an aside, after my co-worker saw the photos she mentioned they that looked better IRL. So there's that!
