ICING Pampered & Primped Swatches
I am so tired right now and I think I'm going to hit the sack early tonight since I haven't got proper sleep lately. I wanted to post one or two post before passing out.
What I love about flakies is that they make your nail look like opals with their color shifting iridescent quality. It's like wearing a semi-precious stone on your nails. I purchased Pampered & Primped at Icing for just a few bucks. It is a sheer raspberry jelly polish with flakies shifting from gold to blue and purple. Just mesmerizing when I look at the bottle.
Beside glitters, I also love flakies but not all flakies are the same unfortunately and the flakies on this polish don't wanna lay flat, well most of them will lay flat but some with stick out, which is pretty annoying.
The base is a lot sheerer than I would prefer and the formula is thick and goopy, which makes this polish hard to get an even application. I definitely will need to put a few drops of nail thinner in there.
I have 3 coats on the swatches and I'm not really happy about how it looks on its own but I think might be able to make this work over another polish.
