Flakie FAIL

So I wanted to see if I could make another flakie as good as or better than Iconic. I actually had two fails, but this one was huge! The idea on this one if so cool - the outcome - not so much!

 I do have to say this looks WAY better in person! It is a rich purple with turquoise flakes. The flakes are super vivid in person!

 Unfortunately it came out so thin and watery, the flakes wanted to stick up all over the place and were dragging the polish, so I ended up with patches.

Although I like the idea of this one so much, that I think I will keep working on this one! You hear that polish companies who are following me? If you steal this, I will out you!

OK so the pics are alright, and in in real life it looks pretty friggin awesome now that it's dry, but the application - YUCK! 

I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone that, a percentage of the sales in August will go to the HollyRod foundation. We are also working on a way to raise some extra money by raffling off two bottles of Unicorn Puke! Keep an eye out for that post with details this weekend!
