This Colour is Flecked

Today is the 5th post in the SNAARKM challenge it's so close to being done! Just two more days left. The criteria for today's post is My favourite effect. The first thing that popped into my head when I heard this was flakies. 


I was lucky enough to get all 5 polishes in the Finger Paints Special Effects collection thanks to the lovely Kitty of Kitty Polish n Bags. She had extras and sent me all 5! Love her! These flakies look best over a dark base, generally black, but I wanted to put them over something a little different. I used a deep maroon wine coloured polish OPI's Eiffel for this Color. Then I used Finger Paints Flecked which is a green flakie and Finger Paint's Motley which is a green-blue flakie as an accent nail.

Eiffel for this Colour was a part of OPI's 2008 Tour De France Collection and is a seriously hot vampy colour. It reminds me of Black Cherry Chutney. It is freakin gorgeous. Not  the most unique polish I've ever seen around, but love it regardless. It's dark enough to make the flakies really pop too.

When flakies came out they really stole my heart and have to really be one of my favourite things.

    1. Thanks!! The FP ones are basically gone, they were LE so unless you go to evilbay you probably won't find any, but some other brands have some similar ones!

    1. I actually was lucky and a friend from Florida had managed to get some extras sent me them! You can still get some on eBay I believe and other brands will hopefully come out with more!
