We’re in love with the cobalt blue hologram polish used here. Don’t worry, even if you don’t have acrylic nails or a stiletto nail shape this blue color will be the statement you’re looking for.
5Neutral Holo Stripe
Nude polish has been another growing nail trend, it’s chic and simple. We
can’t get over how great these two trends look designed together! The nude polish base keeps this nail design subtle and modern. Adding holographic polish in a straight line down the center of each nail is a great way to rock the trend simply.

Ok…how insane is this holographic nail look?! We can’t get over this. It’s pure hologram perfection. Incorporating hologram polish with purposeful touches of chrome adds a whole different aesthetic to this look.
This design is so perfect for the summer! Summer tends to lends its hand to us wearing lighter and brighter color nails. Pairing essentially clear nails with silver based holographic polished is so stylish. We love the dainty stripes added to the nude nails for added glam.

Another way to get the best of both trends: clear and hologram. This is also a great example of short nails looking incredible with a simple design. Adding holographic finish to a clear base nail gives you a super modern style.

13Dripping Hologram Paint
Cardi B isn’t the only one drippin’ in style anymore. Applying holographic nail polish to just the tip of nails and dragging some of the polish down to create a paint dripping effect is so unique. Keep it simple with a pale pink or light beige polish paired with the holographic coloring to let the dripping be the focus.
Unexpected duos are sometimes the best. This is proof! Add some floral touches to one or two nails instead of leaving them solid hologram. Recreating this at home? Use stencils or nail decals to get a cute floral design.
Black polish is an unbeatable color combination with holographic polish, in our humble opinion! The strong contrast allows both colors to really pop. Plus, black tends to add some edginess to a nail look. Painting the tips of nails black like this gives a completed type of feel to the coloring.
Applying just a touch of holographic nail polish to a nail design can be just as chic as an entire nail. We love that the holographic glitter was added to just the tips of these nails to emphasize the triangular design painted onto white nails.

We weren’t done with the pink nails because….who is?! Pink nails are always a win in our book. Switch it up by combining pastel and bright pink polishes together. The contrast is so pretty, pull the colors together by finishing them with a holographic touch.
Just like mixing shades of pink together looks chic, purple does the same. We love that instead of using solid purple polishes here they’ve taken it up a notch and used holographic purple polishes. All the glitter and iridescence makes this even more special.
