Karine's Birthday Flakies

So I owe the untried month a few posts but as it has now past I'll just keep this as my  last official untried post, although I seem to have so many polishes that most of my posts are untrieds! Anyway, today I have some awesome flakies to show you.

I was lucky enough to be able to purchase some beautiful flakie polishes from a blogger called Karine. Many of you probably know her as she's very active on many of the facebook polish groups and she's an absolute sweetie!

These polishes were originally made for her birthday club but we are lucky that she has offered them for wider sale.

I picked up 4 of them and love them so much that I've ordered another 2 which are on their way to me now.

These are the ones I have so far:

Firstly I wore Oui, Je Le Veux. This is a kind of pink, coral, peach jelly with lots of flakies and a little subtle glitter. It would look great with a tan, unfortunately I don't have one but it was still extremely pretty! I wore 3 coats and there was a tiny bit of VNL which I didn't mind at all as it was so pretty, but if you did you could easily just layer it.

Here you go (in the shade):

Next is Noir Desir. This is a black jelly with flakies and glitter. It's really sparkly and gorgeous! I used one coat of black opaque polish (GOSH Nero) and two coats of Noir Desir:

I can't wait to get my next order in my hands (or should I say on my hands, lol), I've got Ooh La La and Romance a Paris on their way.

If you would like to look at other swatches or the rest of the collection look here or to place an order look here

Thanks so much for commenting. I took off the annoying verification thing so I thought I better add some moderation to avoid spam messages, you know what the internet is like!

Anyway, it's great to get comments and I'll verify them as soon as they get to me.
