Lord knows we all love flakes. They are like the be dazzlers of the nail world.
So I was thrilled when piCture pOlish sent me their three new flakes to trial. You better believe I got bedazzling.
Nfu.Oh flakes are the benchmark for flakes. These aren’t quite as complex as the Nfu.Oh flakies but they are still utterly gorgeous. All of the swatches below are two coats and, as you can see, they dry to a smooth, glassy finish.
Best thing about these is the price. Just $11.90 for a full sized bottle. Talk about kicking off 2012 with a bade-bing!
It’s important to match these with an appropriate base colour, and preferably a dark colour.
I matched Festival with the ever resourceful Illamasqua Boosh.
You can see how these dry glossy and smooth. But you will get flakies going everywhere and a perfectly clean finish is almost near impossible.
Here is Hypnotic over Chanel Vendetta.
Splendour is my favourite. Here, I’ve overlaid it over Maybelline Fruit Juice (review on that lacquer coming up later this week). It’s like my nails are on fire.
