Look everyone! Polishes you probably can't get because you live in North America (statistically) whereas they're only available in Australia! Woo! Or, to put a more positive spin on things, let me show you some of the spoils of my recent trip to Australia!
As you may know, I just got back from two weeks visiting my family and friends and I would be doing you all a disservice if I didn't show you some of the local polishes. I have a few to go through but I'm going to start with the clear stand-out: Australis Speck-tacular, a rainbow flakie polish!
It's quite appropriate that is is an Australian polish as it's the closest I've seen a flakie come to opals, one of the main gemstones from Australia. Much like my only missing polish from the Finger Paints Special Effects collection (can't remember the name), Speck-tacular is packed full of rainbow flakes. I love the flakies that have all the colours, just makes it so pretty. Application was decent - flakies can be a little on the thin side - and it was markedly more sparkly than the Finger Paints. Super shiny too.
The Verdict: I think this just might be my favourite flakie that I've tried so far. By the looks of it this is very similar to some other rainbow polishes but this is the only one I have.
By the way, I'll be using my index finger for closeups for the next little while, my thumb had an accident on the streetcar and is out of action.
