I Love Me Some Flakies

I fell in love with flakie polishes the first instant I saw them. I was lucky enough to be able to snap up Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure when it came out like 2 years ago. I was torn between using it all the time because I loved it so much and never using it because I loved it so much and didn't want to run out, haha. So I was glad when polish manufacturers finally realized how awesome flakies were and they became more readily available. If you don't own one you need to rectify that situation immediately! I know Essie runs a little bit on the higher side for a drugstore polish (although it used to be salon only!) but Shine of The Times is a must own (it's basically a Hidden Treasure dupe).

This was back when my nails were long and pretty. Sigh. I need to start taking my biotin again...

This is 2 coats on Nicole by OPI Party in The Penthouse with a coat of Essie Shine of the Times on top.

  1. I love this combo!! You were the one to introduce me to Hidden Treasure! I have Nubar 2010, but I think I need Shine of The Times now too! (PS, if you ever need a cheap Essie hookup, I'm your gal- I can get them with my license ;)

    1. It's always good to have backups! I need some Nubar polishes too. I don't know how I've gone so long without any. And ooooh about the Essies. How much do you get them for?

  2. Omg, HOW pretty and summery! I love flakies too - if I ever feel the need to be "smart" and wear a nude polish, I always stick flakies on it :D

  5. I once saw Hidden Treasure at Walgreens for $10, and I considered buying it even though the price was more than what CSM usually costs. Sigh. I skipped out on it. I think I'll get Shine of the Times or Nubar 2010 instead.

    Jessi, if you get a chance, fill out this week's Tuesday Talk. I want to hear what everyone has to say about #3. :D
