What a Flake!

Stop Flaking Fingers

Not that I objected to having someone else hold the creative reins for the past month of the Oh Mon Dieu Nail Art Challenge, but there’s a delightful sense of liberation that has come with knowing that I can paint WHATEVER I WANT (at least for the next month until September’s 31 Day Challenge begins.) And what I want right now, nail art-wise, is something simple with major kick – something pretty, glittery and beautifully eye-catching.

And so to accomplish just that, I looked to a favourite rainbow flakie polish, Polish Me Silly’s Stop Flaking On Me. I have sung its praises before, but it’s a sentiment worth repeating – Stop Flaking On Me is a fabulous polish, aesthetically and, almost more importantly, in terms of its formulation, which is flawless. Stop Flaking On Me applies beautifully, to be sure, but most impressively, it also removes well – just like the creme polish you most likely layered it over (here OPI’s Fanta-hued A Grape Affair from their Coca-Cola Collection.) That’s the beauty of the colour-shifting chromatic flakies – they do not stick to your nails during (and after) removal like iridescent flakies will. And what of that fun, chromatic colour-shift? Well, it’s awesome, of course! To say nothing of Stop Flaking On Me’s native state, which I think looks like many, many, many rainbow-coloured foils ground up in a blender and added to a bottle of suspension base (for anyone curious, that’s a good thing!)

    • Thank you – the dark purple I used here is from that OPI Coke collection, but the flakies are from a topper I got from an Etsy retailer called Polish Me Silly. It makes everything you layer it over look completely badass!

      • Hey, that’s cool! I think it may have come out this time last year – maybe that’s why there’s all the renewed interest. I also think Nicole by OPI has a Coca-Cola-inspired line, and that one may be newer, as in released this year. I got the mini multi set, which has mini bottles of every colour in the line but the Orange Fanta one (which is an orange glitter.)
