Nubar 2010, Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure, Nfu Oh Opal series…I used to be seriously CRAVING to these polishes which is called “flakies”. I’ll say I “used to be”, because thanks to lot of brands there’s pretty many flakie polishes available now; I’m happy about that, but honestly, now I think it’s even a bit too much :P

So here’s Elle’s Spell from Barielle. This is red jelly with flake glitter. Iridescence effect of flakes is not so unique - it’s Nubar 2010-like red-orange-green flake - and also red jelly with glitter is not so unique too - AKA Ruby Pumps - I think mixture of these two resulted as pretty unique shade.

As Ruby Pumps, because it’s pretty sheer I applied over a coat of red polish. I did 3 coats to get dense flakes on my nail, but maybe 2 is already OK…it sparkles THAT much! Of course how it blings are bit different from Ruby Pumps’ glitter, but it’s really beautiful; I’m just happy that I own BOTH. Can’t really compare!! :D

フレークラメポリって以前からちょいちょいあったのですが何故か去年~今年にかけて結構流行りましたな。私自身はこのフレークラメ凄ーく好きで、以前から海外系ブログを眺めてはずっといいなーいいなーと思っていた身なのですが、……正直、ちょいとばかり増えすぎちゃいませんかねえ(´・ω・`)と思っている今日この頃だったりします。
とはいえ相変わらず好きは好きなんですがw普通のフレークラメトップコート系は面白くないなーと思っている中、BarielleのElle's Spellは買って良かったとホクホクしているポリの1つです。かの有名なChina GlazeのRuby Pumpsの類似色なのですが、ラメが粒ラメでは無くフレークラメなのが特徴です。これが粒ラメのぎらんぎらんとはまたちょっと違うきらきら感で非常に素敵なのです。Ruby Pumps派手過ぎる、でもパールのキラキラ感はつまらないって人にはぴったりかな。ペディにもぴったりな素敵赤でオススメな1本です!

  2. I think it still looks gorgeous and adds a nice twist to the otherwise 'same old, same old' red mani :)

  3. I still think it's pretty unique, I haven't seen many different colours of flakies. The red is gorgeous though! Definitely something I'd love to have.

    1. Flakie topcoats are already a "standard", though colored one...I think we need MORE :P
