Nail Challenge Day 8: Flakie Idol

Oh how I love flakies! Chunks of gold embedded in a clear base. It has the power to transform just a regular coloured polish into something special.


Here's the base colour used, L.A.Girl Color Addict polish in Idol. It's a greyish blue with subtle golden shimmer.


So flakies polishes like this one I used, China Glaze Luxe and Lush from the Hunger Games Collection, two coats of it should be enough to create enough golden chunky sparkle. It's so much prettier in reality, the camera seems to not be able to perfectly capture the sparkles.


Stay tuned for more nail challenge inspired nail art and don't forget to check out my challenge buddies.

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
