Good morning lovelies & happy Sunday!
Sorry for the quiet on the blog this week. Last weekend, I got the devastating news that my Grandad had passed away, so I’ve really been struggling with posting. But prior to that, I had taken advantage of the Canada Day sale at NailStuff.ca & splurged on a whole slew of new polishes (including some new to me brands) so I’m really excited to share them with you over the coming weeks!
First up, let’s start with some holo & flakies! I’ve never owned a ‘Ard As Nails shade before, but as soon as I saw Fairy Flakes I knew it was the nail polish I’ve been missing all my life.
2 coats over Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Lilac Insomniac plus top coat
Look at that close up in the bottle. ‘Ard As Nails Fairy Flakes is chalked full of holo glitters & chameleon flakies. I love the combination of the two, because you get that amazing holo but also the shift from the flakies. & depending on what colour you layer this over, it changes the over all look. It’s just absolutely stunning!
I picked this base shade to test it out first, because it was nice & bright & summery, but also brought out the fuchsia tones in the flakes. I definitely want to try it out next with like a deep, dark plum or purple, or maybe a beautiful dark teal. I feel like it will be perfect come Fall as well.
& for fun, a macro shot. Look at that holo. I’m in love.
& of course, I wanted to get a sunshine shot. I wish this had captured the holo a bit better, but I do think it’s so beautiful. Holo always looks the best in the sunshine.
What do you think about this beautiful holo flakie topper? What is your favourite nail polish topper/transforming top coat? Let me know in the comments below!
& if you’re looking to add this shade to your collection, NailStuff.ca currently looks to be sold out. But they do have a ton of gorgeous other shades from ‘Ard As Nails to choose from! &, as always, you can use my code affiliate COFFEE10 & save 10% off your purchase. & stay tuned, because I have even more polishes to share with you from my Canada Day shopping spree.
