My latest mani is something I enjoy wearing for the past few days, it's so pretty that I don't even want to change it. It's really simply yet soooo beautiful I just stare at it all the time.
I really wanted to try the Innisfree flakie polish that I got a while ago, I actually got it because I was looking for a dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Sweet Dreams, which is a gorgeous pink flakie. This one was pretty close and just looked fabulous. The polish you see below is actually more pink toned in real life and it shows more orange because of the color I layered it over. So in these photos it's not a really good example for it being a dupe for DL's Sweet Dreams, but it's so gorgeous!
I started with one coat of GADE Fruit (which I swatched alone in this post), it wasn't opaque in one coat, but I was going to layer more coats of the Innisfrre polish so that didn't bother me.
Then I applied two coats of Innisfree Cherry Jelly (99) which is a pink-red toned flakie, in the bottle it looks very similar to Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams. I guess if I layered it over a bit more pink toned base, it could have been a better example to show you how similar they are.
The Inisfree polish was opaque enough with 3 coats, and on it's own it was pretty close to the look I created with the base color, but a bit more sheer.
It was really pretty with a glossy top coat, but I decided to try the matte look with Revlon Matte Top Coat which I came to love love love since the first time I tried it.
The result was stunning! It looks like flames on my fingertips, simply gorgeous. I even love that it didn't come out as I intended it to be (hoping to create a dupe look), but something more interesting and beautiful.
