Fun With Flakies

If you follow me on Twitter, you saw a sneak peak of this one last night. I am still a color short for the winter collection, but I know I want a flakie. I have been working on a flakie for another blogger, and ideally that will be the flakie, but I couldn't help but play around. In my mind I wanted something like the infamous "unicorn pee" but with flakes instead of shimmer. I didn't quite make it, but I fell in love with it as it is, so I stopped there. I lovingly named this Unicorn Puke. That will not be the official name, but for now it works.

 Here it is on it's own. It is a very sheer purple with multi colored flakes and shimmer.




I was wearing a dark purple creme polish when I was mixing colors and decided to layer it over that polish. I LOVED how this looked with one exception. See how alone it looks like blue flakes, over the dark color it looks more green. (In the bottle it looks green too!) It has too much of a Christmasy vibe with the green flakes. I really would like the flakes to be blue.

I am sending this one to the lab anyway with instructions to see if they can change the green flakes to blue flakes. If they can, I think it will be perfect. Well actually I would like some of the flakes to be a little bigger.

I warn all you polish companies now, take this polish and I will be vocal! I know a few polish companies follow my blog and some of my mixes are making it to other lines. Um I can tell you follow me, so when that happens it is obvious! Don't make me call you out as an unimaginative thief! Just sayin'!
OK with that out of the way, my daughter decided to try it over several other colors. The very left is over the purple I am wearing above which is a potential future color. OK who am I kidding, it is a future color, all my friends are asking for it, so I have to make it happen! The blue is the one I am working on for another blogger, so ignore that one, the third one is a berry with blue shimmer that failed miserably. You can't see the blue shimmer at all. Boo! The fourth one is over a light purple, the fifth is over a bright blue, the 6th over Quench and the last one is over the upcoming Time Traveler.
You can see over the red and grey/black it takes on a very Christmasy look. No likie!



This shows it on a few more colors. The very left is all alone, the second one is I can't remember what color it is. The third is another take on the blue for the blogger, the fourth one is I can't remember, anyway you get the idea.
And this last one is how I am wearing it now. Over a light purple. I couldn't get the flakies to stand out in the photo, but in person it is intense! I keep getting asked about this color. I have had it on since Sunday. I am going to wait until tomorrow to change it. But I kind of want to put it back on. I was thinking I will wear it over Devious Nature. Let's see.

  9. I need this! Over the dark purple it kind of reminds me of OPI Merry Midnight, but with flakies instead of glitter. I think with blue flakies instead of green it would be perfect.
