Fantastic Flakes

Happy New Year to everyone!
It seems like it has been forever since I have had a chance to post a mani on the blog. Since Christmas, I've been out visiting family (many who live without internet) and haven't been able to write anything for you. Thankfully, Brittany has been viligant with keeping you updated :)

Today's mani is one of my favorite that I've done in quite some time. It was so simple, but looked beautiful. I love the way flakes look out in the sun and was happy that I had gotten another flaky polish. Ulta (one of our main sources of polish) was having another great sale when I picked up both of these polishes. I had a coupon for buy one - get one on Ulta cosmetics and picked up Grin & Berry It. (It's getting to a point that I constantly have to look at what we have or check the inventory so we don't get doubles since we own so many Ulta colors.) I also picked up a few other polishes along with Essie - Shine of the Times (this is gorgeous... go buy it :)

For this mani, I put on 2 coats of Grin & Berry It and then topped with Shine of the Times. As usual, I used a quick dry topcoat (Seche Vite). I was lucky enough to catch a few rays of sun to take some photos in (something I'm longing for on a day like today with lake effect snow coming down outside).

I hope everyone had a happy holiday season! For those of you in this snow with me, keep warm!

Hey! If you love flaky polishes, finger paints (available at sallys) just launched a whole collection of 5 different flaky polishes in different colors, there is an orange, blue/teal, red/blue, rainbow, and a green I think. I'm gonna get some once payday comes around lol!
