Today we have some swatches of my flakie collection, just because I love flakies and I want to share pretty pictures! Four of these came to me via Ingie over at fyeahilovenails when I won her giveaway, even though there was only one flakie up for grabs; she sent me four cause she's a sweetheart like that!
These are all just one coat over black and white.
1) Golden Rose Scale Effects - 13
2) Golden Rose Scale Effects - 04
3) Golden Rose Scale Effects - 03
4) Golden Rose Scale Effects - 02
5) Nubar - 2010 - G188
Firstly, just one coat of flakie magic, no top coat
This is the flakie polish I chose to receive from Ingie as I've always wanted a blue/green flakie. Such a beauty!
Next up with top coat. I think it was a W7 top coat but I can't remember.
It's much harder to see the flakies over white in general, but is easier to see in the shade.
And last but not least the Matte versions, using Rimmel - Matte Finish
You can see here that number 3 has gives a slight orange tint to the white base.
So which is your favourite out of the bunch? Mine is still number 2 (Golden Rose Scale Effects - 04).
