Day 309: Finger Paints-Flashy

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun flakie  polish for you today it is called Flashy it is from Finger Paints Special Effects Collection. Flashy is  is a red and copper flakie that has flashes of green.  It seems to me that Flashy didn’t have as many large flakes as some of the others in this collection but it’s still gorgeous! It also looks like a dupe of Nubar’s 2010, Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure and Essie’s Shine Of The Times. I still love it anyways, I will do a comparison post soon. This one is best when layered over another color. I took some pictures of it by itself but I also have it over a black polish to show off the flakie goodness. On to the nail porn, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…….

Day 287: Essie- As Gold As It Gets

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun top coat for you today it is called As Gold As It Gets from Essie Luxeffects Collection. As Gold As It Gets is flakes of gold glitter in a clear base. I have read that this is pretty much the same as the CND Sheer 24K Sparkle effect, I’m not sure because I don’t own it but if I do get it I will compare them for you. The flakies seem a little less dense in the Essie version. For those of you who didn’t want to purchase the whole CND set just for that effect this is a great alternative. The whole luxeffects collection is meant as topcoats for fun effects over other colors, some can be worn alone and some can’t. I wouldn’t recommend wearing this one alone, I took pictures of it alone it doesn’t show up on the nail very well. I also took some over Wet n’ Wild Ink Well, it looks awesome over black I love this one I think it belongs in anyone’s collection. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 270: Sally Hansen – Glass Slipper

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun polish for you today it is called Glass Slipper from Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color line. Glass Slipper is like snow in a bottle of nail polish, it is a  sparkling topper with a mix of different size icy silver flakies floating in a slightly milky clear jelly base. I love this one it was hard for me to find it but I found mine on ebay for cheap but after I received it I found two bottles at my rite aid lol oh well I have it that is all that matters. This is so pretty, in person but it kind of hangs back in photographs. It just doesn’t show up as it does when you are looking directly at it. Glass Slipper is a nicely behaved topper polish. Smooth jelly base and plenty of flakies. This polish applies smoothly and the flakies are easy to work with. They go on a tad unevenly but it isn’t a major deal and easy enough to even out. This topper dries quickly and needs no  top coat to make it utterly shiny and sparkly. I love the faceted bottle it comes in so pretty and a little gem on the front I’m in love. It  is available in drugstores and other retailers that carry Sally Hansen. It runs between six and seven dollars a bottle. A little steep, for Sally Hansen, if you ask me but oh well I love pretty polishes and I will pay it if I want it bad enough lol. I took a few pictures by itself but it doesn’t show up and I also took some with it over Wet N’ Wild’s Ink Well onto the nail porn, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 260: OPI – Meep- Meep- Meep

Hey Dolls,

Today I have a fun polish for you it is called Meep-Meep-Meep from OPI’s The Muppet’s Collection. Meep-Meep-Meep is a beautiful deep, blue toned, reddened magenta jelly base that is full of delicate, iridescent floating flakies. The flakies are magical, flashing back in pink, fuchsia, red, gold and even blue sparks, at the right angle. This polish isn’t really a color I would normally buy or wear but I’m a sucker for a complete collection and glass flakies in my polish. The formula for this polish is OPI-licious. Smooth and easy to work with. I had no trouble controlling how this polish applied as it flowed off of that fabulous Pro-Wide brush. I had very little cleanup and very little dry time was good. Do I recommend that you grab it if you see it? Definitely. It isn’t the longest lasting polish I have ever met, but it is beautiful and well worth owning and wearing. My pictures really don’t show the gorgeousness of the polish – it’s much juicier and glass-flecky and gorgeous in real life. It’s absolutely dazzling, especially in the sun. I used three coats. It covered really well, typical of OPI quality. I think is an all-around pleasing color and that even though it might not be the attention getter among all the crazy glitters in this collection, I bet it’d look great on lots of people if they gave it a chance! On to the nail porn until next, nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 251: OPI – DS Mystery

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun awesome polish for you today it is called DS Mystery it is from OPI”s Designer Shades Collection. Ds Mystery is a deep translucent or jelly-like purple base with tons of gold shimmer flakes. It’s not glitter circles- they’re tiny, super thin little flecks of gold. Irregular shapes. Smooth, not bumpy. On the first coat you can see that the base is a vibrant blue-toned purple with glistening gold dust. I like the way it looks with one coat, but I hate visible nail line so I do three . With two coats it becomes a deep vampy purple jelly with a large amount of gold flakes. This is unique in my collection and it’s amazeballs on the nail. I love this color at first glance in the bottle I thought it was black until I swatched it and found out it was purple it is so yummy. The formula is thin, smooth, very quick drying, and easy to apply. This becomes  very opaque in two to three coats. Love the color, love the brand, love the name, love the brush I love everything about this polish. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 225: OPI – Pepe’s Purple Passion

Hey Dolls,

I have another polish from OPI Muppet’s Collection, this one is called Pepe’s Purple Passion. Pepe’s Purple Passion is a deep purple looked great in the bottle, but on the nail is much more red toned, which adds an interesting shade to the overall plum hue. Equally fun is the tiny flake-like particles in gold and lighter pink, But they barely show up on the nail you cane see the flakies in the bottle. This one becomes opaque in two to three coats, this one is basically a burgundy with submerged flaky particles. The base color is a bit of a snooze, but I like the submerged flecks. If you’re into plum colors, here’s one for you. I’m not into this one so much I just love the flakes, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..
