Finger Paints Special Effects Top Coat aka Flakies!!!

Flakies!!!  Finger Paints Flakies!!!! Weeeeee!!! I am loving these.
So, I have 3 of the 5 polishes in the Special Effects Collection by Finger Paints, of which, Twisted is my absolute favorite. I actually think that Twisted trumps Cult Nails' Clairvoyant because it has the same awesome wowness as Clairvoyant, but I prefer the Twisted clear base over Clairvoyant's bluish jelly base, as it has more versatility.  There are 2 more polishes Asylum and Motley but I opted to pass them over.  -I'm now kicking myself that I did get Motley, but it's sold out at several of the Sally's I have been to.  If you see any one of these and don't already have a clear base Flakie, don't think it over, just buy it.  You won't regret it.

All of these swatches are 2 coats of Flakies over 2 coats of plain old black polish.  I used a cheapie 60 Sec black polish.
Here they are...



Aaaaaand  Twisted!!!


What do you think?  Cool, huh.
These were going for $5.49 @ Sally's without a Sally's card and $4.99 with.  I love that these are so affordable.  I bought a 2010 Nubar for a tad more and it's basically the same thing as Flashy aaaand I didn't have to buy it on Ebay.  I loo-oove that these are transparent and imagine that they will look fantastic over just about any color.  Seriously, it's like a hundred different manicures in one bottle (well, depending on how many polishes you own, of course ;o)

Until next time...
