M64 and holo frankens

So I mentioned before that I had picked up this old Sally Hansens Prisms in Blush Diamond which is a totally girly pink and not 'me' at all.  But it's holographic so I decided to try and franken it.  Here is what it originally looked like:

And here's what I've got so far:

The left one is kind of a darker version of China Glaze's Gamer Glam.  The one on the right is just a darker pink and is still a work in progress.  I'm thinking of going really dark with it but I'm afraid to ruin the holo.  Here they are swatched under really shitty lighting and in reverse order:

I think I'm content with the purple shade for now.  I decided to try out the pink shade in my next m64 mani.

This is 3 coats of the above pink holo on my ring finger and China Glaze's Bogie on the rest - 2 coats.

I used konad plate m64 in the same colours on opposing fingers.  Unfortunately the holo polish is a little too sheer for stamping but I really love Bogie...nice colour and did a great stamping job.  I did manage to stamp somewhat straight this time lol.

I'm thinking I may go out polish hunting on my lunch today...I have no willpower dammit!
