31 Day Nail Challenge | 08 Duochrome, Flakie, or Holo


Out of the three options for this challenge, a flakie mani was chosen! This is OPI's I Lily Love You that I received from a dear friend, over Essie's Chinchilly. I Lily Love you has a lovely array of flakies and glitters. Chinchilly is a greyish shade, but I Lily Love You's pink sheer base really transformed the look. I hope everyone had a lovely first day of April!

Please be sure to check out what my fellow challenge ladies created for day 8:
Masha @ Lost in Lacquer
Naomi @ Bellezza Bee

  2. It's beautiful - I would never have guessed it was a flakie by looking at the finished result - I thought it was a micro glitter. But flakies are so cool that way LOL
