Flakie Sandwich10:22 AM
I have another swatch for you today!! Sort of. This is actually a jelly sandwich even though it looks like it's just a few coats of polish. I've been wanting this color, I Lily Love You, for sometime now but it's kind of hard to find since the collection has been out of stores for awhile. This is why I love my Kroger. It seems like while they always have the newest collection, they also always have random collections popping up. I remember passing the new Burlesque display half a million times and asserting that I wasn't interested in them. Months later when I decided I loved them I was heartbroken to find that they were ridiculously expensive on eBay. Then...Kroger!! They popped up again. Same with Shrek and same with this gorgeous jelly. I Lily Love You is a flakie jelly and it's a beautiful bright pink color. I also like that the flakies are sort of iridescent. It's just stunning BUT it requires quite a few coats to build up the color. So...I decided to pair it with what is quickly becoming one of my top ten polishes; Zoya Paloma. I used two coats of Paloma underneath the I Lily Love You and then topped it with one more coat. The effect is to die for. Paloma is nearly exactly the shade of the I Lily Love You base but it packs much more of a punch AND you don't have four layers of overlapping flakies since there's only one coat of the I Lily Love You on there. :) Loving this.
