I was in the mood for something a lot more subdued than usual so I pulled out my Essie Sand Tropez . While I don't wear it often I do love it. I wore it as is for a day and then came across the new Finger Paints Special Effects Flakies Topcoats. Hello, must have all of them!!
Not being the patient type, the moment I got in the car I pulled one randomly out of the bag to try (yes, I painted in the parking lot.)
Turned out that I grabbed Asylum which consists of orange and purple/blue flakies. Oh be still my heart! I quickly topped off my Sand Tropez and while the pictures here do it very little justice, you will have to trust me that these top coats are as amazing over the more pale colors of polish as they are over the dark ones.
Asylum tended to show up more in shade or indoor lighting situations when what light was available would hit it just right and cause a flash of color. I can't begin to tell you how many people noticed and loved my mani, which NEVER happens when I'm wearing a pale polish.
I know that most of the swatches you've seen of the Flakie top coats have been over darker colors, but I hope you'll give them a try over your lighter polishes too. The are amazing and add a subtle bit of zing to an otherwise simple manicure.
