Ever Wondered What Happens if You Layer ALLLLLL the Flakies?

The other day I had quite a lot of fun reviewing five different flakie polishes from Ludurana.  While fun, I felt there could just be MORE.  The polishes tend on the sparse side and it just was too subtle for me.  Why not, then, COMBINE ALLLLLLLLLLL THE FLAKIES!!

What you'll see below is quite the stack of polishes.  First up, two coats of my favourite black, Rimmel Black Satin.  I think I might do a review soon of my favourite blacks, whites, reds and top coats, might be interesting.  Anyway, to start off I added one coat of Essie Shine of the Times.  Next, a coat of Finger Paints Flecked, the blue-green flakie.  Next, I added two caots of the yellow-blue Ludurana Chuva.  I wasn't totally happy so I added coats of Sol and Vento!

And here you have it, quite possibly my busiest nails ever! You're going to want to see the close ups on this.









I love how many different colours you see here.  UNICOOORRN BARF


The Verdict:  What else is there to say other than I <3 flakies! These look completely different depending on the light.  In my bathroom they look all orange-green, under my desk lamp it's all blue-yellow, it's awesome. Comparing them though, Shine of the Times and Flecked are betting in terms of coverage but the Ludurana still have lots of different colours and you can actually buy them...

  3. We have the same favorite black polish! Also "Unicorn Barf" is spot on! This is a GORGEOUS mani! I'm so jealous. I only have SH Hidden Treasure (which I love) but I wish I had something with blue flakies, and maybe something with purple or red.

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop.  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....
