Creative musings in bright colors

Green Glades

I keep seeing flakie polishes, and loving them. And yet, I almost never remember to use my personal flakie! I pulled out Zoya Maisie, matched her up with a similar color (to simulate the flakie-in-polish rather than flakie-as-topcoat appearance) and got to work.

Although the green flakies almost disappear into the greenish base, I actually really love this look. It is far more subtle than most of what I’ve tried, but its cool! This is also the first time I have NOT matted a flakie mani.

I then stamped over the design with BM 210, another stamp I’ve been dying to use! It transferred great. I tried stamping with a wet n’ wild metallic polish, but it didn’t work. So I used A England. It is a pity they are so expensive, the polish is AMAZING for stamping!

I’m really pleased with how this came out. Maybe next time I’ll try to make the stamps uniform across my nails, rather then reversing it and messing around. But I was feeling whimsical!

  1. This is so pretty! The flakies give it so much dimension!

  2. Sooo pretty, I’m always worried about stamping with the same colour, different shades, but yours show up really good, and the flakies add another dimension, super cute design.

  3. This are so pretty, love them! 😀
