Nail Polish Blogger Challenge
Good morning! For this first really challenging day of this blogger challenge, I decided to get out my beloved Inglot flakie polish: 202. Sounds boring, is in fact super exciting: 202 is a clear base filled with small orange and golden flakies. Heaven! I used one coat of the flakies over 2 coats over OPI Do you think I’m Tex-y?, which is ‘my’ pink for this challenge.
The Inglogt flakies look their best in natural (day-)light, and I could’ve stopped there and called it a layering success, but I wanted to see how far I can go!
So I put another coat of OPI Do you think I’m Tex-y? on top:
Again, it looks best in daylight (hence no artificial light picture). The flakies reflect natural light best I think. And then, I needed to try something I had been postponing out of fear for a long time: Holo Topcoat over flakies sandwich. For this combination I decided to use Hits Hefesto. Hits is a Brazilian brand, and I got this one from my friend Samantha. Can you believe how awesome it is to have a rainbow on your nails and those flakies peeping out from underneath!!!
Again, I couldn’t leave this be. I decided to layer another coat of Do you think I’m Tex-y? over the holo topcoat. In natural light you can see both the flakies and the holographic topcoat better than in artificial light.
above: natural light, below: artificial light
I don’t know what you think about this heavy layering, but I love it every step of the way! The enresult looks like glass on fire I think. I never thought that layering flakies and holographic polishes could work, as both flakie and holographic polishes are somewhat of a cherry on top. So layering them over each other really is a cherry with a cherry on top!
What do you think about this combination?
