Wheel W12: Flakie Toppers

The green cremes are taking a break this Nail Wheel Wednesday to make room for flakie topcoats. Some of these have the more "sticky up" mylar shards, some the more well behaved flat flakes. Most of these are just flakes, but a few have glitter, too.

(all are over black base on half the tip and have clear topcoat in addition to flakie coats except as noted below)

1. Butter London Leccy (2 coats) [99% sure this is Leccy; the label got wiped when I was trying to clean up from the great polish crash incident]
2. Butter London Brass Monkey (2)
3. Native War Paints Special Effects Life in a Glasshouse (2)
4. Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy Moon Dust (1) [all these Moon Candy needed thinner, some a lot of it, and some had their brushes pull out of the stick part of the handle when I tried to open them; again, not sure why I bought so many of these type when I know they frustrate me so]
5. Sally Hansen Triple Shine Pearly Whites (2)
6. Nfu-Oh 40 (2)
7. Maybelline Colorama Shimmer Girl (2)
8. Maybelline Colorama Flares of Gold (2)
9. Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy Cosmic (2)
10. Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy Universe (2)
11. Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy Supernova (2)
12. NYX Pink Ave. (2)
13. Funky Fingers Beautiful (2)
14. Sparitual Opaline Matte Top Effect Luminary (2, no topcoat)
15. Orly Matte FX Pink Flakie Topcoat (2, no topcoat)
16. Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy Satellite (2)
17. Maybelline Colorama Pink Pinata (2)
18. Maybelline Colorama Sonic Sunset (2)
19. Maybelline Colorama Ruby Rays (2)
20. SinfulColors Deep Red Ocean (2) [this is the mostly glitter version; there is an older more flakie version called just Red Ocean]

  1. These do look and they always look fab over black - really pop out! Right up my street <3

    1. I thought about doing the tips all black ... but wanted to be able see the tint in the base that a few of the flakies have since that can affect how they look over lighter shades.
