Fishbowl Friday *039*

by - 7/31/2015

Bonjour and Happy Friday! I've had a little bit of a crazy week and am definitely ready to just reeeelax! Anyone else feeling the same? I've been sick since Monday, and I'm fiiiiinally coming out on the other side. Yesterday, I pulled my prompt and got FLAKY. Here's a mani topped with a little something I very originally dubbed Franken Flaky... (I know!)

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Mesmerize
2 Coats Franken Flaky
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

In December of last year, I mixed together a bunch of my flaky polishes to create Franken Flaky. I layered it over black back then, but I've gotta say, I like it over a deep purple much, much better! Not gonna lie, I was trying to emulate Unicorn Puke from Cult Nails by creating this.

I'm not sure if giving this a little time to settle made everything mesh together a little better, but I feel like the flakes are better spread out here. I also used one less coat, so maybe that had something to do with it too. Either way, I seriously looooove this mix of glitter and flakies. I wouldn't be against making a larger bottle of it, either. There are days that I wish I would've bought backups for every polish in the Special Effects Collection from Fingerpaints. I definitely had the foresight to get a backup bottle of Twisted, but I guess I just didn't think I'd need/want the others?

Note to Self, you will always, a-l-w-a-y-s need the others!

Before I painted, I thought about going a little bit lighter with my polish, but decided to go dark. Just
call me Ridley! Can't say I'm really sure what's with all the vampy colors lately... something a little bit different, I suppose? Don't expect me to start waxing philisophically about sweaters and boots yet, though. Salted caramel coffee I can do, but I'm not ready for cold weather anytime soon!
