Faded Neon Rosebud

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekends. Sadly for me I have to be at work on Monday. No holiday for me. :-( 

Today I'm showing you a fun striped look with two Indie polishes. My base is Floss Gloss Faded. This is a greyed out denim blue. It's a really unique color and I'm a huge fan. This is two easy coats. 




I then used straight Nail Vinyls to add stripes of ILNP Neon Rosebud. These multi-chrome flakie polishes are everywhere lately but they are SO GORGEOUS! Neon Rosebud goes from blue to green/yellow and magenta. It's so stunning and I love the way it accents Faded. 




As a final touch, I matted the whole look with my Revlon Matte topcoat. I much prefer it matted vs. shiny. 




What do you think? Flakies or no flakies? Matte or shiny?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

    1. I think the flakies lend themselves to nail art, which is so great.

  4. This is gorgeous! I hope we get some flakies out here. I have the Revlon moon candy ones, but they are not nearly as cool as these!

    1. The sheer ones like Moon Candy are so different from these chrome ones. I can't get enough of the chromes.
