Flakies and Glitter manicure- Tutorial

Good morning!
I'm wishing you a beautiful start of the week! I'm exhausted as I spent time packing and u hauling. I got to go to the beach, which was the only relaxing part of my week end. I'm taking a deserving break and wish it could last more :) Ok on to the nails. I didn't know what to do so I picked some random untried polishes and came up with this reinvented french manicure. Hope you like it!

I started with one coat of OPI Ski Teal You Drop, yep one coat. I love this brand

I then dabbed one coat of Ludurana Sol, a clear base with yellow, green, copper, and orange flakies.

OPI DS Temptation was needed to agreeably complement it in a side french manicure

I finished with my Kleancolor black striping polish. 

One coat of Seche vite to smooth it out and voila!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Oh my gosh Karine this is stunning x

  2. Wow, so pretty! It's very diffrent and I like it!

  3. I really like this! All the different textures of the polish look great together!

  4. thank you so much! I really wanted something different lol

  5. Love this! I hope you don't mind if I try it myself in the future :)

  6. This is so creative and unexpected! Nice job, Karine! :)

  7. You have inspired me to pull out my Ski Teal You Drop and cover it with one of my Finger Paint Flakies - that's a great look - dusty teal with a nice flaky. I am so wrapped up in brights right now - pretty soon I will want to reach for another darker look. I saw that after just painting my toes with Barry M Bright Red and starting some nail art on them with Stripe Rite for the 4th of July celebration tomorrow!

    1. Ski teal you drop does not get enough love! I love this shade so much but its not a summer tone but you can always pull it off like this
