Warm brown flakie

Barielle Elle s Spell 2

This beauty is Barielle Elle’s Spell. A red flakie that shifts to gold and then blue/green. The flakies are suspended in a burgundy jelly base. Since the base is sheer, I decided to layer the polish over black. It is kind of a prerequisite for me to test a flakie over black since in my opinion that is when it shines.

Violet is the last color I am sharing with you from the polishes I’ve sampled from this line.  This was super hard to capture correctly, as my camera tends to hate purple shades.  But I got this pic which I think is accurate and gorgeous.  I love the shimmer in this color, there’s definitely some hidden pink hues trying to peek out!  Plus you can’t beat that shine.

Illamasqua facet 2

Described as “Grey Crystal” on the website, Facet is part of Illamasqua’s Sacred Hour collection. It’s a grey/taupe base packed full of coppery shimmer flakes, and is completely stunning! It’s simple yet still somehow unique in my stash. I think Raindrops will always be my favourite Illamasqua shade, but this comes very very close.

Cult nails seduction 5

I have the last polish in the Cult Nails Divas and Drama Collection for you today, Seduction. This polish is a simply gorgeous purple/red jelly base absolutely filled with red, blue and pink iridescent flakies.

It doesn’t have the most imaginative name but it pretty much sums up the polish, a gorgeous black with fine holographic glitter. In the photos I applied two coats but because the formula is pretty thick and opaque you could get way with one coat.

I made dots with Fashion Addict (unfortunately I don’t have a holographic version of this beauty ) and a dotting tool. Easy and quick.

Definite tip wear! So typically when this happens, I take the polish off and put a new one on… but I just wasn’t ready to part with Carly!

Blue Lagoon is another sheer one, again 4 coats and still a lot of VNL. This blue jelly polish is filled with aqua glitter, light blue holo glitter, and tiny silver glitter/shimmer. I can’t wait to layer this one over a dark blue!
