Claire's Green and Gold Flakie Polish

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 3/14/2011 06:53:00 PM
There are not any nail bloggers I follow that do not like flakies...
I found a little set of flakies on clearance at Claire's.  Ohhh, I almost missed out on them.  This was the last one.
So, this is a continuation of my green Heaven post from earlier.  I used the green flakie over that mani...

and got this...
The flakes are gold and green.  They seem to be a bit bashful.  They are on there but, just don't show up in the super-bright sunlight.
I have on two coats as I was trying to get the larger flakes to adhere.  They are on there, just very sparse.  And this polish is rather thick.  Hey, I don't care!  It's still really pretty and just because it doesn't photo well doesn't make it a loser. :)
So here I have the original polish, Heaven's 'Too Turquoise', then China Glaze's 'Matte' polish, and now I have Claire's Flakie glitter on.  I have no idea why I stopped there; I still could have applied OPI's 'Black Shatter.'  Overkill....yea, I know.

Are you able to get at least a tiny sense of the flakies on this mani?  Do you like using flakie polish?

@MissMidnight I didn't know they were out there, or, if I did, I didn't pay any attention. I'm glad it got it when I did.

@kittypolishnbags Yep, one of my favorite words: clearance ;)

@Christine Yep. I'm looking forward to trying out some more looks with them. I just wish those flakes wouldn't be so...well, flaky!!! ;)
