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.

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....

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
