Chameleon flakes from BeautyBigBang

Hi guys, today I have some flakes from BeautyBigBang to show you!
A few weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to try some of their products and I said yes. The Chameleon flakes caught my eye, so I chose to try three of their colors.

The Chameleon flakes are on sale right now for $2.99 (original price $5.99) and you can find them here. Each box contains 0,2 g, and they’re available in twelve different shades.

As you see in the picture above each box of flakes comes with a double sided eye shadow applicator. To apply the flakes you can either use the applicator they come with, your finger, a fan brush or another type of brush.

To get the flakes to really pop and get the most colorful result I’ve applied them over two coats of black nail polish, and they’re topped with a quick dry glossy top coat.

First out are these gorgeous blue to purple shifting flakes called J2443-2A. In some lights they even shift a little bit to green, which you can see on my ring finger in the first picture.

Next up are these purple to green shifting flakes called J2443-3A. Out of the three flakes I got, I think these are my favorites!

And the last flakes I got are these orange to green shifting flakes called J2443-4A. These flakes look like there’re on fire!

I also tried the flakes over white, and even tough the color shifting isn’t as obvious as over black, I’m totally in love with the result! I think my favorite over white has to be J2443-3A.

From left to right I’m wearing: 2A, 3A and 4A.

The flakes were really easy to apply and the result is stunning! They shift beautifully in different lights and you wont be able to take your eyes off your nails with the flakes on them.

The application can be a little messy, also be careful when you open the box otherwise you’ll have flakes everywhere. Some scotch tape is really hand to pick up excess flakes around your nails or on your working space. You can also rinse off the flakes on you skin with some water after you’ve applied your top coat.

Whats up nails Mermaid flakies

Last week I got some new lovely products from Whats up nails to try! The package included flakies, magic shifting powders, glitter confetti, nail vinyls and water decals, and as you probably already know I’m a huge fan of their products.

Since I haven’t used any flakies before I decided to try them first. The flakies comes in a jar that contains 0.4 grams, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but it actually is quite a lot! The jar is packed full of the flakies and I think they will last for years.

I applied the Mermaid flakies over two coats of Lady in black from OPI, and I applied them while the polish still was wet. The application was super easy, and I found that the finger was best if you don’t want that much coverage, and using a fan brush was best if you want a lot of flakies over the whole nail (like I have here). You don’t need to finish with a special top coat like when you use powders.

I think the flakies are so beautiful, they give such depth to the mani! I could not stop staring at my nails while wearing them. Depending on the light they shift from green to blue, in some lights they are just green, in others they’re just blue.

You can’t have mermaid nails without a little bit of mermaid scales patterns on top, can you? Though I didn’t want to cover up the beautiful flakies too much so I just stamped the pattern on two nails.

Hope you like these as much as I do!

Pahlish Dumbledore’s army

I recently bought some polishes from Pahlish and three of them were mystery Pahlishes. The mystery Pahlishes are a bit cheaper than their other polishes and I thought it would be a fun surprise to get a few of them. And a fun surprise it was indeed, one of the polishes I got was Dumbledore’s army. Can you imagine how excited I got!? This polish was a Black Friday exclusive that I missed out on so I’m so happy to be able to add it to my collection now.

Dumbledore’s army is a green jelly with multichrome and holographic silver flakies and it covers in two coats. The finish and formula reminds me a lot of piCture pOlish’s (which is a brand I love) and the polish was really easy to apply.

I pretty sure you will be seeing more of Pahlish here on my blog pretty soon.
