ILNP Atlantis

Flakies, duochrome - count me in. I didn't know if I wanted to put ILNP's Atlantis over black or something else. I settled on KBShimmer Low and Be Bold, three coats to be exact.

The final result was pretty, but didn't show off the colors as much as I had hoped for. Guess I'll have to keep messing with this beauty.
Do you have a favorite base other than black for your flakies?

Salon Perfect Pa-tri-otic


Total. Slacker. I know I really need to get it together. I've just been in a creative and blogging slump lately and my untrieds cry out in abandonment. Between two jobs, the summer sun calling my name and being a single-doggie mama - it's a lot!

I had to do something festive for the 4th of July and picked between a few of Salon Perfect's special top coats. I went with Pa-trio-otic. Red, white and blue triangles suspended in a clear base. First, two coats of Icing True Blue so all three colors would stand out.
Then one coat of strategically places triangles. For the accent nail, two coats of Cover Girl Snow Storm stamped with BBF 01 and China Glaze Hey Sailor and Sally Hansen Blue Me Away. Hope you all had a happy and healthy holiday!
