Matte Flakies

       Last night, I put on a England Lady of Shalott, a prominently blue shimmer with a bit of pink and purple in a blackened base. While it was perfect on its own, I needed something more. I mentioned it to my friend Karly and she had the best idea ever. Add a blue/green flakie polish and make it matte. Genius I tell you! Pure genius! 


Two coats Finger Paints Motley over two coats a England Lady of Shalott
Two coats Butter London Matte Top Coat


       I haven't worn flakies in such a long time. I actually forgot all about them until Karly mentioned it to me. Motley is a great mix of blue and green. It looked good glossy, but it's more mermaid like with the matte top coat. 

       Please don't mind the bit of tip wear I have. I didn't bother touching up the edges before adding the flakies and top coat. It looks fine in real life.


     Do you have any flakies? After seeing how great they look with a matte top coat, I don't think they'll be forgotten from now on.
