WE WANT MORE POLISH!!!
Shopping today in Priceline, I was looking at the Australis range - which mind you is a brand I have not worn since I was about fifteen.. Low and behold, they have a flakie polish!!
I have spent months, drooling over the Nfu Oh brands and trying to decide if I want to pay a small fortune for one from eBay. It seems to be the easiest way to purchase and have sent to Australia! But, I have had other things to pay for and well, I couldn't make up my mind on which Nfu I would buy first. So when I saw THIS - I had to have it. It is called "Speck-tacular" and was only $8.95!
Another polish I got for Christmas was OPI's heavenly 'Ate Berries in the Canaries'. It is a gorgeous purple/pink creme which applies like butter. I already had painted this on my toenails so I decided to match and experiment with the flakie.
On the bottle Speck-tacular is classified as a top coat, however I still applied Seche Vite over it to ensure that it would remain smooth and glossy.
Because this is the only flakie I own, I cannot compare it to any other type. I found that I needed to apply two coats because I wanted more flakes than what one coat would provide. Are the flakes usually brushed on sparingly? Would love to know how this brand rates in comparison. Maybe I really need to buy some Nfu Oh's for "educational purposes"....
