Sea Glass

Sea Glass

Although I remain somewhat unsold on the utility of flakie polishes (polishes with shards of iridescent or holographic glitter in them,) they do create a beautiful, textured sea glass-like look that’s perfection when layered over ocean-toned lacquers.

Here I mixed and matched a few readily available drugstore polishes, both sides of Revlon Moon Candy in Orbit, a double-ended lacquer featuring a dark purple cream polish on one end and a flakie on the other, as well as Hard Candy’s glittery Mermaid Magic and ’80s standby Wet and Wild’s turquoise Caribbean Frost.
