Native War Paints Holographics

Today I have two holo polishes from Michigan-based indie brand Native War Paints. First up, Rotten Zombie Flesh, an olive green holo shimmer. I used three coats for my swatch; there is a preorder on now for what must be an updated version, as its listing says it's opaque in two coats. The holo in this one is shy in indirect lighting, though it's still a nice shimmer in a great color.

I unfortunately lacked sun when I swatched this but did get some scattered pops of color in direct indoor light.

Ribbons and Bows is the purple sibling to Rotten Zombie Flesh. I used four coats of this one, though probably could have stopped at three (which is consistent with the product listing, though unfortunately this one is sold out now). I could see the barest hint of rainbows in the lightbox at some angles.

Because these were on the sheerer side, I decided to try layering them over a silver base, which I constructed with one coat of Nicole by OPI Give Me the 1st Dance, a silver metallic, and two coats of Morgan Taylor Fame Game, a silver and holo glitter.

I topped the silver with one coat of Rotten Zombie Flesh on my index and middle fingers and one coat of Ribbons and Bows on my other two digits.

I liked these combinations in the lightbox (above) and really liked them in direct light (below).

I bought a few other polishes from Native War Paints at the same time as these, but those will have to wait for another day. This retired life I'm living is still surprsingly hectic.
