Flaky Flecked over Holly-Day Display

Go ahead…say that title 3 times really fast. Hee hee.

Yes, the Glitter Giveaway is still going. You have to enter here before Sunday, 1/8 at 8 PM EST.

Did you get a ton and a half of Holiday polishes like I did? I still have some to swatch but don’t want to seem like I’m not moving on, you know?

I am, however, still in love, and will be forever probably, with my Finger Paint’s Special Effects (aka FLAKIES!) collection. So I am looking for ways to take the Winter collections and marry them with the Finger Paint polishes.

Gotta love me some dark green creme polish…

‘Holly-Day’ is from the 2011 China Glaze Holiday collection. This is a green that I would pick if I could only wear one green polish. It’s a Goldilocks polish; not too dark, not too light, juuuuust right.

Next, I paired it up with the green flakie from Finger Paint’s named ‘Flecked’.

‘Flecked’ makes ‘Holly-Day’ look like it has lights blazing in it. And it was fascinating to flash my nails back and forth for the dazzle effect.
 
 

 I didn’t apply ‘Flecked’ on my thumb so as to show ‘Holly-Day’ standing alone. So, I have 2 coats of China Glaze’s ‘Holly-Day’ and one lavishing coat of ‘Flecked’, then the Color Club’s Vivid Color Intensifying top coat.

Yeah, I’m happy to have found a way to use ‘Flecked’ again. 

Are you scouting out ways to use your Finger Paint’s Special Effects?
