That’s right, I have another powder to share now that I have a method that works for me! I tried to do this before, and I only knew of the gel method and I failed miserably at it. This go around, we’re using the same method I used in yesterday’s no gel tutorial, but instead of Girly Bits Holochrome powder, we’ll be using What’s Up Nails Paradise Powder.

What’s Up Nails carries an assortment of special effect nail powders. They have 9 multichrome variations, silver chrome and a holographic. The one I’m showing is the Paradise Powder, which is a teal to blue to violet to bronze shifting multichrome powder.

Here are all the items I’ll be using for this mani. At the bottom of the post I will have links for everything if you want to pick any up.

To start I did the UNT Base and then Darling Diva Polish’s black creme (I still love that it’s a 1 coater)

Once dry I added Girly Bits Glitter Glaze top coat, waited for it to dry and then added Superchic Lacquer G-Force X.

Much like the last tutorial, I applied Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues peel off latex base around my skin to help minimize cleanup (still can’t find my normal latex barrier)

Next I used What’s Up Nail Paradise Powder and an eyeshadow applicator!

This was just as easy as the holo application. When I was done, I peeled off the latex barrier.

Peel off the latex and you have a less sloppy looking manicure.

Then I topped the powder with UNT Nail Lacquer base and applied another coat of Girly Bits top coat!

What’s Up Nails Paradise Powder Overview

I found the What’s Up Nails Paradise Powder to be easy to use and I like the finish on it! It’s more shifty in person, but because of the lighting I need during my night time posts, it takes away from the shift a bit.

If you missed yesterday’s step by step no gel powder tutorial, make sure you take a look. I used the exact same process here, just with a multichrome powder instead of a holographic powder.

Removal is easy, you use normal nail polish remover like you would any normal manicure.

Here’s where you can purchase everything I used:

UNT Nail Lacquer Base: Amazon | Price: $10.00

Black Creme: Darling Diva Polish Shop | $8.00

Superchic Lacquer G-Force X: Superchic Lacquer Shop | $6.95

Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issue Peel Off Base: Vapid Lacquer Shop | $5.00 (you can also get the real latex barrier, Purple Polish Eater, for the same price)

Paradise Powder: What’s Up Nails | $21.75 (they also have other multichrome color varieties)

Girly Bits Glitter Glaze Top Coat: Girly Bits Shop | $6.10

All items listed above were purchased by me EXCEPT the Paradise Powders. What’s Up Nails sent that for review.

Overall I do like the holographic effect better, but I am also a multichrome lover so I’m not complaining. I’m going to be purchasing a few more multichrome powder variations to try out as well, namely Dragon Powder and Fairy Powder.

What do you think of this look? Do you prefer this to the holographic powder?

  1. Thank you for this. I can’t use Gel anymore because I developed an allergy. But I bought the stuff for it anyway because I’m stubborn lol. Now I’m going to check out these products’

  2. This is another amazing holo. I would be so busy looking at my nails that I wouldn’t get anything done. I hope to be able to do this myself one day.

  3. I cannot get over how amazing this looks – it transformed that black into something so mindblowing! I need all these powders in my life!
