Flakies!!!!!!! Do you know what a flakie is? Chances are if you are a nail polish junkie like me you do, but if you are just getting into polish, or read our blog just cause you love us, you don't. A "Flakie" is a nail polish that is usually sheer or has a jelly consistency, which jam packed full of "flakies." They are literaly flakes of very think sheets of some kind of iridescent material. One place I read on the web says opals, but I'm not sure I believe that. They give the polish a great texture and look and often create a duochrome (two color) look. Long and short they are awesome. Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure is one. So when I did a little Nfu-Oh haul (my first one), I picked up 5!
So as promised, here is Nfu-Oh #50 over Rescue Beauty Lounge Purple Haze. Nfu-Oh #50 is a pale purple sheer jelly base packed (and i mean packed, this is one coat) with blue iridescent flakies. I totally loved this manicure. I snapped these pictures after the second day or so when the sun was shining, so there is a bit of tip wear. I really need to learn to be better to my nails!
