Who doesn't love flakies? They completely transform the look of a manicure, AND removal is pain free. The other day I was browsing one of our local drug stores and stumbled upon a full display of Layla Ceramic Effect polishes at a pretty average price, so I picked up this gorgeous purple flakie polish. I may have to go back and get a couple more :D
To create this look I started by using Gosh Deep Purple as my base, with an accent of the gorgeous Revlon Royal. Then I added one coat of this Layla Ceramic Effect polish (whose name I can't find?), on top of Deep Purple, and Finger Paints Motley over Royal. I really loved this look! My only regret was using such a dark base for the Layla flakies, it masked the pretty purple base and basically made it look like the regular orange-to-green flakies.
Here's a bonus photo showing the colour shift of the flakies. And if you look closely you can see my kitty's reflection in the window (right above my pinky).. if it were up to him he'd photo bomb every single one of my pictures lol.
Hope you're all having a fabulous Tuesday, and don't forget to go vote for your favourite manicure over at the Nail Polish Canada nail art challenge!
