These two polishes are not terribly new but worth a review. I got a shimmer and a flakie and they work together perfectly.
I got both polishes at Icing, Claire’s Boutique’s sister store. First, here is the shimmer…
Even in real life, ‘Orchid’ is stingy with showing her shimmer. At first, I thought it was a creme. But when you can look closely at the area where the sun is shining really bright, that gives you a glimpse of it. The shimmer color is like 2 shades lighter than the base color so it is very demure.
Oh, just a tiny bit of shimmer showing here.
I have mentioned in previous posts that I’m just not a big pastel color lover. ‘Orchid’ is about as pastel as I care to go. I have on 3 coats but seriously, 2 would have been just fine.
This next polish I picked up was the only one left. It was so mine. You’ll see why…
This is ‘After Party’, a multi-color flakie polish. The colors are not holo, just colored flakie glitter. Keep going to see what 2 coats look like.
Ready to see them together?
It isn’t a perfect flakie; it tends to drag on up to the tips and it is bumpy. And let’s not forget, a pistol to remove. I didn’t need to do the foil method, just did some heavy rubbing.
But, I’m willing to lower my standards for a look like this. Yea, I had to work for it a bit however, I’m in love with the look.
‘After Party’ looks exactly like its name; glitter confetti everywhere!
I know these are lillies, but I planted something and it bloomed! I planted a long row of these along the side of my front walkway. The purple in the lillies looks very similar to ‘Orchid’ polish…
