Picture Polish Festival

Firstly I would like to say a big thank you for all of the lovely comments you have left for my Beetle Water Marble manicure, I have been utterly bowled over by your support! Also I'd like to say thank you for following my blog, you are all wonderful and as a thank you when I finally reach 500 followers I will be holding a fabulous giveaway!

Anyway on to todays post. I am joining in with Llarowe's brand of the day showcase, here is my contribution to the Picture Polish range.

This is Festival, the first flakie polish that I have had on the blog so far. Festival is a combination of every possible colour flakie in a clear base. I have found that layering flakie polishes over a dark base is the way to get the best colours out of a flakie polish.

The flakies in this polish are a little bit sparse so for these swatches I used three coats of Festival over a base of Cult Nils Nevermore and topped it of with one coat of Seche Vite for added gloss.

Here you can see the gold and red flakies
