Happy Flakie New Year!

Hello, Fireflies!

Happy New Year! I know, it's just another day.. but we've been brainwashed into thinking that there is something magical about it, that suddenly we can CHANGE, that we can be better people. 

Nothing wrong with working on being a better person.  But, please, take time to recognize how wonderful you are, how beautiful, and kind, and good.  How you love and are loved - just as you are.

I decided to start off the new year with a couple of new-to-me polishes.  Lancome Noir Caviar is a dark grey crelly. 

Lancome Noir Caviar

It's an interesting texture - very jelly-like in application, requiring 3 coats for opacity, and having a little more balding than I'd like.  The shine is really nice, though, and I love the color.

I first came across Sweet Color W015 on Nail Polish Wars, and I fell in love at first sight.  I ordered it from Born Pretty Store right away... and then waited 2 months for it to get here from China!

Totally worth the wait.  Have you ever seen a flakie with so many colors? The yellow and purple! It's like Mardi Gras on my nails.

Even though I'm rocking uber-short nubs (the holidays wreaked havoc on my nails!) I had to show this off on both hands. 


I hope your 2014 is as wonderful and fun-filled as I think this polish is!  I can't wait to see what it will bring!

  2. Oh yes I don't like that Lancome polish on its own, but WOWSERS, that flakie top coat is amazeballs! I need to order that!!!! And the Lancome makes a great base for a flakie!! Happy New Year to you, like you said, no need to put pressure on ourselves to become totally different people just because the calendar is a new, full 365 again!!!

    1. Flakies are soooo much easier to remove than glitters, too. No soaking, or anything like that. Another reason to love them!

    1. It doesn't usually! Although a month is not unusual for me. I think the holiday season slowed *everything* down.

    1. I agree! I haven't seen one with so many colors in it before. But, I've never seen Cult Nails Unicorn Puke in person, either. :)

Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
