Rusty Manicure with Butter LONDON Wallis

Hey lovely Ladies,
This post is about flakies …again. I hope you are not tired of it yet (no one can be possibly tired of flakies, right?)

As a base I used one of my favorite polishes of 2011 – Butter LONDON Wallis. It’s already has an touch of antique look to it.

At first I thought just to cover it with Essie As Gold as it Gets, but it didn’t quite work out. Top coat wasn’t seen at all.

So, I used Relouis Crystals 443. This is also a flakie top coat. I bet you have never heard of this brand before. It’s a Belarusian brand of makeup. 443 is one of the polishes that I picked up during my recent trip to Russia. It has a very thick coverage unlike most of the flakies. I used only one coat.

On top of the flakies I matified it all with Essie Matte top coat.

    KarenD - the brand is very local and have a small variety of products. I believe it's not sold outside Belarus:) I'm glad I checked it out though.
