Nfu-Oh #50 over Rescue Beauty Lounge Purple Haze

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!

I'm so happy I got these flakies.  I can't wait to try the others.  I highly recommend these polishes if you like the look.  You can get them for $12.50 each on FabulousStreet.com.  Shipping is a little steep though, so pick this one up one you are planning a large order.
