Good morning guys! Hope you all had a good weekend, I did! My wallet had a very sad weekend, both Dollish Polish and Nerd Lacquer re-opened their stores on etsy yesterday and I went a bit nuts. Did anyone else go crazy like me (please say yes!!)? Today I have some flakies to show you....yay!! These flakies are from a new to me brand called Up Colors. Up Colors is a brand that Leah Ann from Llarowe will now be carrying in her store, in addition to these awesome flakies they also have some great looking holos!
Make sure you check out a ton of photos of these beauties after the jump!
For all the photos below I used 1 coat of the flakie over black. These are all nice and dense and you get good flakie payoff with 1 coat! These do dry a little dull looking, I used a top coat in all the photos and all photos were taken in the shade!
Balada! is red to orangey gold flakies in a sheer magenta base. There are also so small green to teal flakies sprinkled in the mix but they are sparse!
Banho de mar! is bluple and green flakies in an aqua base. What you see is pretty much what you get here, there isn't really much of a color shift with these flakies.
Base is green to blue flakies in a clear base. Even though I have a bunch exactly like this I love this so so much....I could photograph flakies that flash like this all day. They are magical lol!
Beijo na Boca! is green, red and blue flakies in a sheer reddish pink base. This is my favorite of the bunch, it looks like Christmas on my nails depending on the angle.
This photo is a bit blurry but it was the only one that caught the color shift of the green flakies!
Carnaval! is green and red flakies in a yellow/brown base. This one is very very similar to Beijo na Boca!
Viagem a 2! is red, gold and green flakies in a yellow base. For some reason I couldn't capture the green in my photos but this one is very much like Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure.
Since these are all in different color bases I put them all on a nail wheel so you could see how well the base color translates onto the nail. Most of them don't show up but a couple do! I numbered the polishes on the nail wheel, they correspond to the numbers below.
1. Banho de mar!
2. Viagem a 2!
5. Beijo de Boca!
Up Color flakies can be purchased from Llarowe, they are $8 each and the bottles hold 10ml!
