Crossing a glitter with a flakie-

My thoughts lately have been about different layering combinations.  Trying to come up with the next cool thing.  Today I decided I wanted to see what happens when you layer a flakie with a glitter.  Yes that's right I said glitter!  I have found a glitter I actually am digging right now!

First up, we have the styled silly bottle shot.


Now how cool is this bottle shot?  This is Barry M Spring Green, Nails Inc The Wyndham, Nails Inc Kensington and OPI Pirouette My Whistle.

I started with Kensington.  This is a blackened teal and I must say as much as I love Nails Inc, this was the first one where the formula just sucked ass.  Thick, streaky, unruly it was just horrible.  Here are the shots of it.

I know it just looks black here-but it does have a pretty teal feature running through it.  I next added a layer of The Wyndham which is a green flakie.  Here is that step.

Pretty cool right?  You with me so far?  Next I did a layer of Pirouette.  I am actually loving a glitter-can you believe it?  Here is that step.

Still with me? Next I dabbed more green flakies in and around the spaces and topped it off with my funky in Spring Green.  Here are the glorious results.  Flakies and glitters galore.

I am really loving how the green flakies peak out between the glitters.  I got a lot of "looks like St Patrick's Day" comments and yes I guess that is true.  I tried doing a layer of a holo on my thumb and it just obliterated the detail of this mani.  So I left it as is.

I leave you with a random kitty shot.


Aren't they cute?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
