It’s the weekend baby! I am so excited about having some relax time. How has your week been? It has suddenly gone from spring to summer and it is exhausting. I am still battling with this throat issue. Ugh, I just want to feel better already. I am sure that this weekend of rest might do me a whole lot of good and I am hoping it will make next week awesome! Do you have fun weekend plans?
I have a bunch of powders, pigments and flakes and I have NO idea why I haven’t used it much yet. I’ve mentioned before that I have this weird thing where I ‘save my best for last’ and tend to not use my favourite things. It’s totally dumb and when I saw my container of pigments I just KNEW I had to use it. It took me half a day to choose which one and even now I am unsure if it was the right one. It just means I have to use more of them sooner rather than later. Well, let me show you what I did
I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Black on black on all my nails and left that to dry completely. I then used these flakies from Born Pretty Store and a wider brush and applied these flakies randomly on each nail. I wanted to just have bit of them on each nail but it is so gorgeous and addictive I couldn’t stop. I topcoated each nail and then used Lina Feeling Shapely 01 and Mundo de Unas – Black to stamp the diagonal lines on the middle and ring finger. I topcoated that again and that was that.
I think these flakies are soooooo stunning. It was harder to photograph than I imagined and I now feel like these colours are ones I’ve used before in a flakie polish but either way, it’s stunning. I will definitely use others soon. The diagonal lines are much more obvious in real life. Is it visible here? What do you think? Does it work? I feel like this is just so pretty that it didn’t need too much in the way of art. Do you like flakies? Do you prefer polish with flakies or the loose flakies like I used here? Have a fabulous weekend pretty people and I will see you on the flip side
Thanks for reading,
So this flakie business always confuses me… You used a normal polish and normal topcoat? Also you can have my allergies and I’ll take your throat thing, because I’m tired of sneezing and a runny nose for no reason.
Yes, normal polish and normal topcoat. The flakies are really like super thin and fine loose glitter. So it is placed on top. Whereas pigment powder gets rubbed into the based. You can also pack a lot of flakies on to make it more like a solid look or less for more of a scattered flakie. I am really loving these!
Girl!! I am so feeling. I swear I am going to cut my nose off and then drink bleach for my throat. I can’t deal anymore :/. Hope you feel better soon.
*decides not to tell about her week with all sorts of gorgeous views and yummy food, and without allergies, sneezes, sniffles, etc*
I remember there was a time when flakie polishes were SO cool! I guess those are just about extinct now with gorgeous flakies like these 🙂
Have I ever told you how much I love your sense of humour? :P. I am so jealous. I am STILL sniffling a bit. Can you believe it.
You know you say that and I am still obsessed with flaky polishes. It’s been really hard for me to get them here and I feel like I got proper flaky polishes and flaky glitter at the same time. I have some gorgeous flaky polishes I need to use.
