Parrot Polish Flakie Goodness

***Press Sample***

Y'all, I am super stoked.  SUPER stoked.  Yesterday, something fantastical happened.  Something every mother *loves* to happen after giving birth.

I fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans.

No more maternity pants for this lady!  I am on Cloud 9!  Nothing can stop me now!!

So let's celebrate with some nail polish flakie porn!  Aw yeah!  Parrot Polish released 3 flakie toppers, and guess who got to swatch them?


Please note, all toppers were swatched over "Pitch Black," a one-coater black creme by Parrot Polish :)

We'll start with "Ice:"


Full disclosure - this one is thick, and the flakes stick up/curl a bit.  The base seemed to bubble as well (best seen in the matted photo), though that could very well be user error - I've seen polishes bubble on some people and not others.  Otherwise, it's got great coverage, and I just looooove the blue!  

Next up is "Hemisphere:"

The green flakes in Hemisphere are more opalescent to me which really adds to the effect.  This topper is a lot more sparse in application, so if you want more coverage, you'll either want to do 2-3 coats, or sponge them on.  All of my nails above have one coat except the ring finger, which has 2.

And lastly is the most beautiful of the three - "Oz:"

Where are my Ruby slippers - I wanna LIVE in Oz forever!!  This polish had the best coverage with no fishing required, and my nails looked like opals!!  Truly a completely stunning topper, and easily opaque in 2-3 coats.  

You can purchase these flakie toppers at the shop link below:

What do you think of these toppers?  Are you as crazy about Oz as I am?  Let me know in the comments!


Polishes were sent to me for photography purposes.  All experience with the polishes are my own and my disclosure remains 100% honest.
