Since I started drooling over everyone elses' blogs, I knew I had to get some "Flakies" polish. I don't know what makes them flakie, only that they look freaking AMAZING. It's not like glitter, though it does give off a bit of a hologram/duochrome twinkle. But it looks like it's suspended in the polish which gives it a deep feel.
My 16yo daughter began this nail polish journey with me, but lives life in the fast lane. So unlike my nail tutorial, she wants to paint and go. And Zoya's Sasha--a deep jelly-like red--didn't cut it for her. So I inherited it. Yay me! I had been digging thru all the Zoya Reds trying to find the right one--and here it was!
I also heard rumblings on blogs about this mystical Nubar 2010 that had flakies very much like the sought after Nfu Oh flakies. It looks clear. The flakes have maybe a tiny hint of color so you can see them in the base but that's it. Only when you layer it over a darker color does the magic begin :)
Behold: Zoya Sasha + Nubar 2010:
