Swatch & Review: Paint It Pretty Polish – Flakies, Flakies, Flakies


Hey y’all, welcome! *singing* “Flakes, flakes everywhere. Flakes, flakes I don’t care. Flakes, flakes in my polish. Flake, flakes…… yeah I don’t know, I’ll stick to my day job. But when I say ‘flakes’, what comes to mind?

I for one think… cereal, yep, Frosted Flakes, Corn Flakes, I love them all! And because I constantly have food on the brain, let’s say crushed red pepper flakes too. Yum, pizza… with pineapple and bacon. Wait, I’m getting carried away.

There’s also snowFLAKES and while they are great, they are not as tasty as cereal or pizza. Then again, neither are as pretty as the flakes in the collection that I have to show you today. Today I have the Flakes, Flakes, Flakes collection from a brand that is new to the Queendom, Paint It Pretty Polish. Maker and creator, Sherri sent me this quad and let’s just say, I’m seeing flakes in a brand new light!

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid, Tonic Topper  by Tonic Nail Polish (shiny) and Matte Me topcoat by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Overall Thoughts – Paint It Pretty Polish – Flakies, Flakies, Flakies

Formula / Application: no issues to report

Opacity: swatches shown using the sponge technique and All Flaked up is shown in 2 coats over a black base.

Availability: Friday, August 4th

Price: $10 CAD = around $8 USD

Overall: I thoroughly enjoyed this quad but if I can be honest, my first impressions were, “these polishes are going to take 2-3 coats of topper to give them a smooth, glossy finish and “they will never be opaque enough on their own.” Both fears were dispelled and the final looks were amazing. The sponge technique is not new for me and I often use it for glitters, so applying these polishes in that manner was fun and allowed me to test them on their own. That being said, I am confident in saying that these polishes would look glorious as a topper over a similar base color or as show above… all by themselves.
