You'll Be Obsessed With These Glittery, Color-Changing Nail Polishes
One of my favorite Instagram activities is obsessing over nail polish swatches. Top nail bloggers often show off indie brands on their nails, introducing me to new worlds of finger fabulousness. And while I own an enviable stash of lacquers, I lack (and admire!) the patience that it must take to test and photograph an entire collection's worth of manicures. The best of both worlds came together when I discovered that swatching queen LacquerLoon teamed up with the expert brand of glitter polish KBShimmer to show off every single shade from its upcoming Summer collection, The Flakes.
First off, if you're not familiar with KBShimmer, you should be. The company produces insanely complex colors (multichrome holographic lacquer, anyone?), flawless glitter-cream blends, and even hand care products. But The Flakes is something superspecial, even for these seasoned sparklers.
Flake varnishes (or flakies, as they're known in the polish community) are made of glitter pieces that look like small flakes and are typically holographic in nature. A few coats of a polish like this are spectacular on their own, but when you layer it over a color (especially black!), the real magic occurs. The lacquer takes on dimension and looks like a galaxy on your nails. Prepare to be totally blown away, but act fast — the collection is extremely limited. Once it's sold out, it's gone forever.
