Hey everyone~So, what do you get when you layer a flakey top coat over a flakey filled polish? Lots and lots of flakies, of course! And while I'm a huuuuuuuuge lover of flakies (♥♥♥), I'm not actually sure I like this end result *shockhorror*
I started off with two coats of Orly Fowl play, which has beautiful blue-orange-red shifting flakies in a plum jelly base. I proceeded to add one coat of Nubar 2010 over it, but didn't like how the denser green-yellow-orange flakies over powered the base. So I decided to layer one thick coat of Australis Speck-tacular to re-emphasise the base flakies. I don't think it really did much seeing as Speck-tacular has really sparse flakies. And because of that, I still think 2010 looks too overpowering and makes the mani look a little...ugly. Definitely has to do with 2010 - maybe it just isn't meant to be with Fowl play.
While I consider this a fail layering, I'll be trying more flakey layerings in the future...I just need more different flakey polishes first! What do you think, is this too much? :P
Thanks for reading.
