Guess who's GOT blue?


Hello, Fireflies!

Welcome to April's Golden Oldie Thursday challenges!  Today's challenge is pastel.  And, I guess I could have picked something a little more pastel-y, but it really is a gorgeous cornflower blue.  This is a polish I wasn't looking for, but when I saw it, I had to have it:  Sally Hansen Diamond Guess Blue?

Sally Hansen Diamond Guess Blue?

I used a cosmetic sponge with this unnamed Cosmetic Arts mylar flakie polish and loaded it up and sponged it on.  In hindsight, maybe it was a little heavy on the flakies.  What am I saying? Can't have too many flakies!


I used two coats of Seche Vite, but I probably should have used one coat of Gelous or a glitter tamer and one coat of Seche instead.  Some of the flakies were pointies and scratchies!


Even over a light blue, these flakies ROCK.  Finger Paints who? (well, just the second collection.  The first is still awesome.)

  1. Nice pairing. I used to own that glitter too but I sold it before I really starting getting into nail polish.
