From The Vault: Mermaid Like

Some time ago we arranged a little swap with Ophélie from Tartofraises. I sent her some Golden Rose polishes of her choice, and she sent me some nail art goodies in return. I always wanted to have some hexagon flakies, and she sent me two jars of them in red and clear =) Both red and clear have a green flash.
I tried a quick hexagon covered manicure, and I think it turned out quite decent. The base color is this blue Claire's polish, and I put on the flakies while the topcoat was still wet. Then I covered the whole thing with another coat of topcoat. Although the pictures don't do the real life version any justice, I finally decided for posting them here =D




And finally, the mattified version:

Both versions looked so great in real life! Every time I moved my fingers, they looked like as if covered in fish scales or like a weird disco ball =)

  5. Thank you for the feedback, Dudis =)
    Hey Charis, those nails are a masterpiece! She did a great job! But I'm afraid it would be so hard to use them & remove them =)

  13. Very pretty :) I've tried adding flakes like this before but I could never get the edges all the way flat. They were popping up on the corners and it just drove me nuts! I took it all off before the paint was even dry!

  14. Yeah, I had the same problem, too =) I tried to push with a dotting tool to make them flat, but they stuck out a bit =) It didn't bother me too much, but I still removed it the same day =DDD
