Alright, something a little different today. I'm kinda burned out on color. In case you didn't notice I posted roughly a bazillion swatches this week (okay maybe not a bazillion, but a lot!). I needed a palette cleaner I guess, so I went nude-ish. Mani's like these are almost my favorite. They look so crisp and classic but are still fun to look at. I started out with a base of BB Couture Paradise. I got this in a blog sale a little while back and it's so pretty! It's kind of a chameleon, at first I thought it was a pink/white but the more I wear it the more it looks like a pink/beige...whatever it is I approve haha! There is a subtle shimmer in the bottle but it doesn't transfer onto the nail. I've worn this before and hadn't had problems with the formula but we had some issues this time so I needed 3 coats :(
Over Paradise I put on of my favorite flakies, Maybelline Colorama flakies in Blazes of Crystal. I like these flakies because they flash all the colors of the rainbow. A lot of the newer flakies only seem to flash like 3 colors. You could get a similar look to this using something like Nubar 2010 or any of the Inglot flakies, they just wouldn't flash all the same colors!
A different shady spot, it makes my skin look all yellow-ish but look at the flakies!!Blog Gadgets
