Finger Paints “Flakie” Topcoats!!

Hello Guys and Dolls, today I have an important announcement:

*over a loud speaker*


Finger Paints L-R: Asylum, Flecked, Flashy, Motley, Twisted

Oh Yes, that’s right. An inexpensive brand has come out with line of 5 “flakie” glitter polishes! WHOO HOO! The Down side? they are limited edition and selling out quick. RUN- grab your google & find the number to a Sally Beauty supply near you and see if they have them.. that is after you finish drooling over my swatches.


Here I did 2 coats of each “flakie” over 1 coat of Wet ‘n’ Wild black. Please excuse my messy polish application, the brush of the Wet ‘n’ Wild polish gave me a tough time.

Thumb= Flashy

Index= Flecked

Middle= Twisted


Pinky= Asylum



Did I mention these look particularly cool with a matte topcoat?

I used China Glaze Matte Magic

Price- $5.49-$4.99 with Sally Beauty card

Availability- Sally Beauty Suppl Stores (I haven’t seen these online yet)

Final thoughts- LOVE! The only one I’d Skip is Asylum because it’s too sparse, the milky base is too strong, and you could recreate it using Flashy and Motley.

    Holy crap! Thank you for the post on these, Cora! They’re amazing! And since its my birthday I know who’s taking themselves to Sally’s as soon as they open! I really hope they have them! These look fantastic! <3

    I have them. Love them. These are so pretty and definitely worth the money and the time and effort to track down.:D

    I decant my Wet-N-Wild Black Creme into another bottle with a great brush for use. Wet-N-Wild makes surprisingly nice polish but their brushes are atrocious. 🙁

    I love using my matte top coat over metallic nail polish, but I don’t really like the flakes. 🙁

    Love these! So glad to see dupes for the Zoya Flakies! I must have been living under a rock, because I just discovered you on YouTube today and I love how genuine you are! Had to come check out your blog since I am a blogger as well. Great site! Keep up the great work! xo Amber

    I love flakies so much! Too bad I can never find any where I live (for some reason). I think flashy may be my favorite of all these.

    Hey Cora!! I finally got my flakies and let me tell you I had to go to great lengths to get these little gems 🙂 I called every Sally’s within 250 miles of where I live with no luck whatsoever. Then I thought I would just give it a shot and call the Sally’s in my grandparents state…lol! (don’t know what made me decide to do that) Low and behold they had every single one. I put them on hold under my g’pa’s name and called him up, he picked them up and shipped them out. Gramps saved the day!!My 80 year old super hero..hahaha. I am so excited I was able to get my hands on them because they are just as awesome as you described. LOVE FLAKIES!! Just thought I would share my flakie adventure 😉

    Hi! I am new, but saw these on here earlier this week and when i was at Sally’s tonight they had a special. Buy two ion hair dyes and get 1 fingerpaints nail color free. I was worried these wouldn’t count ( like the china glaze crackle was excluded from certain Sallys CG deals) but it worked just fine. I may have to go stock up on dye *and* flakies!

    It’s ok, but I prefer to use loose glitter that I get in art stores. Much more creative freedom/control here!

    Thank you so much for doing this review. I subscribe to you on YouTube and knew that you posted pictures here so I was able to look up the website and use your photos to decide which polishes I wanted while at the store. It’s nothing major but I was really glad I could use your photos as reference. 😀

    I bought flecked without knowing what it really was…my daughter and I just LOVE nail polish so we thought we would try it. LOVE IT! Since orange is my favorite color I am going to search for Flashy 😉 Love the tutorial!!!
