here's sally girl grape from yesterday (which i'm choosing to call "graype" because of how gray-ed out it is), with a thin layer of milani hd on top.
i've worn milani hd several times before, and i've never gotten the holo to come out as much as with this combination. something about the grayish base of "graype" made the holo stand out really well. maybe because hd is pretty sheer on its own? i don't know, but i'm so glad i stumbled on this combo. if you own hd and were disappointed in the lack of rainbow on your nails, try it over another color! i've seen other bloggers try it over black and it looks stunning.
again, here are bottle shots of the polishes i used:
