Hi everyone! It's flakie time! I don't often drool over flakie polishes because I don't like the typical orange/green color shift that most have. But these ones... These are special.
This is Nfu-Oh 50 which is turquoise flakies in a sheer purple base. Here I have layered it over China Glaze First Mate to create a deep mermaid-like look.
At some point I will also layer this over a purple to get the bottle-look but I am in a dark phase and love wearing dark colors! (I know, who am I and what have I done with Rebecca?)
On certain angles the flakies completely change color which I was not expecting! They become a gorgeous dark blue. I couldn't stop staring.
I do have a complaint though about this polish - I got crazy bubbling. I'm not sure if you can see it in any of the photos but each nail was totally bubbled after a few hours. It was hard to tell on the nail, but I peeled off a few nails while studying and each one looked like a galaxy of bubbles when I held it up to the light.
The formula on the flakies is really thick and this was 2 coats plus 2 coats of First Mate, and then Seche Vite. The thickness might have added to the bubbling but I wear thick manis pretty often and don't experience it. So it's weird.
I can deal with bubbles for mega prettiness though!
Now I have my eye on #51...
