So continuing the theme of posts from Monday, first up tonight is a catch up post of last Wednesday's theme. I have a Pinterest board for my nails but I must say I never use it for pinning anything else, I mean to, but just never get around to it! So in this instance I simply searched for 'Nail Art' and scrolled lol... I spotted a stunning matte flakie mani with gloss black french tips, exactly what I fancied!! Pretty hapy with how they turned out considering my nails are still a wee bit nubby at the moment :)
I started with two coats of the indigo and followed that up with two coats of this ever so pretty flakie. When that was thoroughly dry I did two coats of the matte topcoat in pretty quick succession. Finally I added the gloss black tips just using the bottle brush. First time I've used this new Barry M flakie and I just love it, can't wait to try it out over some other colours!
Barry M - Indigo, Crystal Glaze, Rimmel - Matte Topcoat, Barry M - Black.
...And here was my inspiration, shared on Pinterest via stylecraze.com :) I did have a redish flakie but thought I'd go for the more pearly colours for mine!
