Mani-Pedi Guide: Future-Perfect Polish

With new holographic nail lacquers, tomorrow is at your fingertips

As the tech world dreams of an iPhone capable of 3D projections, beauty buffs have already embraced holography’s glint. Unlike the usual single-shade metallic sparkles, holo glitter plays with the light and changes colour as you move. On Chanel’s spring couture catwalk, it replaced ho-hum liner on lower lids, and at Rodarte’s fall 2014 show, pink and purple lipstick got a twinkling upgrade. Not ready to brave disco-ball shine on your face? Ease in with holographic nail polish. Wear it sheer (no bright undercoat required) for a subtle futuristic flourish as you tap away on your space-age gadget of choice.
