One week of possibilities : Essie Lapis of Luxury Day 3 Golden Rose Scale Effect 01

I have decided to experiment a little bit this week. I chose a nail polish, Essie Lapis of Luxury and I'll try and use it to post a different combo each day until sunday.
Today I have a matte rainbow of flakies with one of the Golden Rose Scale Effects. In case you're curious, you can see the whole Scale Effect collection review here.
This particular one, 01, is a green to orange and yellow flakie when hit by the light and pink to purple and blue otherwise.

Overall :
Flakies over pastels... That's my favorite way to wear them! But I must confess that I've always loved them even better mattified!
What's your favorite base color for flakies?

  2. Wow! It looks great! I must say that I've never tried flakies over pastel colors. I usually use flakies over dark colors (black is my favorite).

  5. Another one who never thought of using it over pastels. AWESOME idea. I do the matte thing cuz I like matte often on my nails. Very well done.

  7. Beutiful! As the other girls said, it's something different, everyone uses flakies over blacks and dark colors, this is more subtle but looks great too!

  9. aaaaaaaaaaaaah! I want that! badly! I have to go change my manicure and put on flakies! :)
    Question though - I read that round nails are "in" again - would you change your nail shape according to fashion?

  18. Hi girls, I'm happy you like the flakey over pastel look and the matte version!
    @goodlacknail Actually I love almond nails but I don't think that they'd suit me. I find them so feminine and delicate though :(
