Finger Paints Flashy over OPI Midnight In Moscow

went to the Virginia Living Museum today... and found i had forgotten to charge my camera's battery! so frustrating :( but since we're members it isn't that big of a deal, i guess. all the animals were out playing today which was awesome! my husband's favorite animals are otters and i love... well, all animals, but especially anything canidae :) they have red wolves there, i am happy just to stand and watch them for hours. the museum participated in the government's captive breeding program a few years ago; the three wolves they have now are the father and two sons. how cool is that?!

and now, the polishes of day... and i'm happy to report we are back to the flakies! today's flakie is Finger Paints Flashy (get the Special Effects collection at Sally's now *January 2012*) layered over OPI Midnight In Moscow (Russian Collection). this combination is my favorite so far, everything about the polishes complement each other!

MIM is a dark, dark burgundy which can appear black. it has very subtle wine colored shimmers which give it depth, so even at a distance it looks much warmer than pure black. the formula will scare you, it is a sheer, streaky mess on the first coat. luckily, the second coat evens everything out!  this is such a sexy nail polish, perfect for a date... but i wear it whenever :)

two coats MIM topped with one coat Seche Vite.




Flashy is a combination of green and orange flakies... there is really nothing bad to say about this polish!  it is so easy to work with, one thick coat is all you will need. on the other flakie post i said that they should be topped off with two coats of Seche Vite... this one dried so shiny it could almost have been left alone. adding just one coat of SV made it SUPER shiny!




hope you're having a great weekend!! Ria :)
