Aqua flakie skittlette

Hello sweeties and happy Friday! If you have read my blog pretty much at all, I’m sure you know I luuuurrve I Love Nail Polish. It was my first indie brand, and I am a loyal fan of pretty much everything Barbra puts out! When the multichrome flakies were released, I went all grabby hands and got pretty much every single one (I won 6 in an instagram giveaway, aaaand then I bought 6 more lol). I haven’t featured them on my blog a lot because I have such difficulty photographing them! They’re like little shifty ninja polishes!

Like these ninjas:

Get it? hehe

Get it? hehe

Yeah, the multichrome flakies want to show up about as well as the ninjas at their parade!

Anyways, I wanted to use one of the flakies for this manicure and decided to pair it with more springy colors. And then I freehanded some odd spiky flowers on top!

I kind of just started doodling with those flowers – they weren’t supposed to look like anything in particular. I do like how the middle finger came out!

I tried and tried to get a good picture of how great I Love Nail Polish Supernova looks on the nail, but it was just so shy and didn’t want to play. It was totally gorgeous in real life though!

Supernova was even shy for her closeup too! These pics don’t do it justice at all. So here’s a bottle shot:

I mean right?! Look at all that shiftiness! It totally looked like that on the nail in real life, and I really loved it over that KBShimmer aqua. In the past I’ve paired the ILNP flakies over darker colors, but I really like it over this bright pastel aqua!

Polishes used:

  • Index & middle fingers:
    • Base color: KBShimmer Eyes White Open… I still totally want to call this Eggs White Open – no idea why! And this time I’m not hungry haha! The more I use this, the more I love it! It’s such a great white creme.
    • I then freehanded those odd spiky flower things with KBShimmer Shore Thing… this is a gorgeous bright aqua that I got as a gift. And I love it! Spring is such a great time for these beautiful teal/ aqua/ mint polishes, and I’m so happy to see this color back on everyone’s nails! It’s my favorite!
  • Ring finger:
    • Base color: KBShimmer Shore Thing
    • Topper: ILNP Supernova… as you can see from the bottle shot, it’s chockfull of multichrome flakies that shift from teal to emerald, kelly green, blue, fuchsia, purple, and even gold. It’s stunning!
  • Pinky: KBShimmer Shore Thing

What do you think? Are there any spiky flowers out there? And if you’ve photographed these multichrome flakies, what are your tricks you wizards??

And now for your daily David Tennant (and Donna, because she’s the most important woman in the world!):

Sparkly Leopard Print Manicure

Hello sweeties! I had a dream that I returned from my vacation to find that my holy grail red holo (Darling Diva’s The Alchemist) had faded like a mofo and was now an ugly pink. I know the minute I walk through my door, I’m going to check on that – what a nightmare! Have any of you had dreams/ nightmares about nail polish? You know you’re an addict when…

Anyways! For today’s manicure, I basically just grabbed a few polishes I hadn’t worn yet and played! I hadn’t done leopard print in a real long time, so I decided that needed to happen, and I accented it with a gorgeous vivid coral and a flakie top coat.

Despite being one of those quickly thrown-together manis, I think it came out pretty cohesive! I usually do leopard print with the lighter shade as the base, so this was a bit different for me. Instead of using three colors (one for the base color, one for the blobby spots, and one to outline), I just used two since I couldn’t think of a good color for the blobby spots.

I really like how the shimmer of the coral Digital Nails still shows up in the leopard print! It’s such a gorgeous polish!

Leopard print + shimmer + flakes = love!

I bought the Digital Nails polish (Super Temp) solely for the name. It’s Doctor Who-themed (surprised much?!) and based on Donna Noble, who is definitely in my top 2 companions on the show (and the most important person in the world). So even though I bought the polish just for sassy Miss Donna, I am in LUUUUURVE with it!

Oi Spaceman! Here’s a closeup:

I also decided to finally utilize a flakie top coat that was a huge lemming for me and was recently squashed. Zoya Chloe is perfect red-orange-yellow-green shifty flakie goodness all in a little bottle. I’ve had Opal (which is the blue-green flakie version) for awhile and have been lusting over the hard-to-find Chloe. So happy to own it now!

Here’s a closeup of Zoya Chloe:

Polishes used:

  • Index & middle finger:
    • Base color – OPI Malaga Wine… this is a gorgeous deep brick red creme. It’s such a perfect polish – I need to wear it again! I think it’d also be a great pedicure color.
    • Leopard print – Digital Nails Super Temp detailed on with a small dotting tool
  • Ring finger: Digital Nails Super Temp… this beauty is a very bright coral orangey-pink with gold microflakies and some golden shimmer. I love love LOVE this polish!
  • Pinky:
    • Base color: OPI Malaga Wine
    • Top color: Zoya Chloe

Do you buy polishes if the name or inspiration hits you where it counts? I’m such a sucker for themed polish – I hope I’m not the only one here 😉 I think I probably own [number not listed due to utter ridiculousness] Doctor Who polishes, and I just know that if another well-named one comes out I’m going to snatch it up too!

I hope everyone’s New Years has been safe and happy! It’s 2015 y’all!
