Hi everyone. Happy Friday! I am very glad it's the weekend, I have been struggling with my early mornings this week!
I recently snapped up a bottle of Color Club - The Uptown from a Facebook sale group as I have wanted that polish since it was first released. I don't own many flakie polishes so I was very excited to play with this when it arrived. I saw a picture of someone on instagram (for the life of me I cannot remember who it was) who had mattified their flakies which just blew me away.. so I got my matte topcoat straight out and got to work :).
Isn't it a beauty?! Read on after the jump for more.
As a base I used China Glaze - Fade Into Hue.
Once that was dry I taped off half of my nail and painted the other half with Color Club - The Uptown.
Then using Cherimoya - Neon Blue I painted the stripe down the middle with a striping brush.
My photos do not do this manicure justice at all, The Uptown is so much more beautiful in real life. You can get a better idea of what it looks like from the bottle shots. I do love a good mattified flakie! I wore this for three whole days which is practically a lifetime for me.
How do you prefer your flakies? Glossy or matte?
Thanks for looking.
