Hello dear readers! This layering mani I’m showing you today is one of, I think, the most gorgeous matte flakie manis I’ve done, so I’m really excited about it! 😀 I actually did this twice because I had to do some swatching after the first time and I had to take it off, but then I wanted to wear it longer so badly so I did it again! I think this design is so soft and subtle, but the flakies give the whole look a lot of depth.
I used a pastel dusty pink creme from LAKA as base, then I layered a coat of Finger Paints Motley over, then a coat of Essie Shine of the Times on top of everything. And of course I had to mattify it with Essie Matte About You! Motley flashes blue and green, and you can see it running through in the middle; Shine of the Times mostly flashes gold/orange. So you can see the contrast between the two flakie polishes, which I think created a lot of depth to this mani. Also of course mattified flakies is one of my all time favorite looks! 😉
I think this design is so gorgeous and I would really wear it a hundred times! It’s nude without being boring and it just makes my hands look super clean and elegant! 😀
What do you think of this flakie layering mani? Do you love matte flakies as much as I do? Do you like this nude look? Please leave comments below!! <3
