Neutral Mondays: Essie Chinchilly with Flakies!


Ah, Monday we meet again. Actually, with no job, Monday's aren't all that bad! :) Especially while wearing a nice neutral like Essie Chinchilly. 


Now I've seen a few different versions of this color some that are more brown or more grey. But either way it's a lovely taupe-y grey color that is just perfect. I decided to add a little fun to it.


Flakies! Remember when these were all the rage? Especially the Finger Paints Flakies? I bought the entire collection that first week they were out, but I haven't used them that much. But here I used Finger Paints Twisted. I used NYC In a New York Minute as my top coat.

Honestly I forgot how fun flakies are. They can brighten up a simple mani and add a bit magic to your mani!

Are you a flakie fan?

  1. I only have one flakie polish, from my only Moon Candy double-ender (Milky Way). I like it alright, but for some reason I've not been highly tempted to add more flakies to my collection.

    1. I don't have that many, and I don't use them all that often either.

  2. Pretty! I did the same exact thing with the Fingerpaints flakies... I got a backup bottle of Twisted, and I'm glad I did. It's one of my favorites... :)

    1. Thank you! They were all the rage and now they are released them again, at least I think they are the same but different names?

  3. I love flakies, but I tend to forget about them. This is a nice neutral mani with warmth from the flakes. Pretty.
