Polish Me Silly Multichrome Flakies

Last year the nail trend was textured polishes, and now this year the big thing (in the indie world so far) is multichrome flakies! I love me some flakies, now they are multichrome which makes them even better, and endless color combos!

Of course I had to mattify them! Here are some more pictures from different angles.

As you can see, these are very hard to take pictures of. Adding a matte top coat usually helps with photo taking.

The color I used here is Polish Me Silly- Party Hearty. I used two coats over OPI- Sapphire in the Snow. You can see her that it is fairly opaque, but you may need like 6 coats to get it fully opaque. I think that goes for most of the multichrome flakies except the I Love Nail Polish ones.

I really enjoyed this one, and I wore another one recently but a little differently, stay tuned for that!

Happy New Years!

These aren't anything really that special or "New Years" themed. I just wanted something bright, glittery and fun on my nails, plus all but one of these are polishes I got for Christmas.

The glitter on my ring finger is the one that was purchased by myself, and it is KB Shimmer- Hexy Bikini (6th Anniversary Collection). This a textured polish, and it is amazing of course since it is KB Shimmer. It is primarily silver holographic glitters, but has a lot of blues, pinks, and purples as well which is why I paired it with these other polishes.

The cremes are all Barry M. My fiance's sister goes to school in London, and was previously living in Northern Ireland the last like 5 years, so she got me one of these for Christmas like 2 years ago, and 2 of them for Christmas this year. The one on my index finger is Mint Green, which is part of their regular nail paint line, and was two easy coats. The bright blue on my index finger is Guava (Gelly Hi-Shine Collection). I have wanted to try these for so long, and now I know why all the UK girls rage over these! This one was nearly a one coater, but I used two coats here. Formula was perfect, and it dried super shiny! Now we will have to see if it stains. The purple on my pinky is Prickly Pear (Gelly Hi-Shine Collection). This one was a little thinner, but covered the nail in two easy coats. It also dried super shiney. I am definitely going to have to send some money over with her to get some more!

I painted the glitters over the chevron Nail Vinyls after applying a fast drying top coat. All these glitters were gifted to me by my Keithland. I never ask for polishes as gifts, but this year I gave him a list and links, and he got me a bunch of indies! These three are all from Glam Polish's Mid-Winter's Dream Collection for Winter. I loved every polish from this collection, but figured I would put these 3 to better use. The names form index to pinky are:

Polar Lights
Below Zero 

I used a thickish coat to get these opaque, but I am sure if you wore these on their own they could cover in 2 coats.

Hope you enjoyed these and had a fun and safe New Year's celebration!
