Matte flakies gradient

Here is a mani I wore earlier this week.  My base is one coat of OPI DS Fantasy, I then applied sections of three flakies polishes, the first is blue at the top, then green and then yellow.  The flakie polishes I used were Inglot 203, 204 and 205. Then I decided to make it matte, because flakies look awesome matte.





The Inglot flakie polishes are packed with flakies, which is good, cause the bottles are tiny.  This was just one dabbled layer of each of the Inglot polishes.  I never remember to matte any polishes. I must try to remember to do it more often. I particularly like the soft touch feel that matte polishes give.

  6. I love these flakies. It doesn't look like these polishes are easy to come by here in the U.S.. Any advice?

    1. They are available on the Inglot website and at really large Macy's. Also, there are plenty of other flakie polishes available in the US market.

    2. There's an Inglot store in Newport Beach, California at Fashion Island. Mass market: you might want to start with Essie in Shine of the times, available at CVS and WalMart for example, or Revlon has a few out right now that are double ended with a base color on one end and a flakie coat on the other. Sally Beauty Supply has a few flakies. The prettiest ones I've seen are online in various Etsy stores.

  12. Thanks for sharing this mani. There are not many swatches of Inglot flakies out there, so not many nail fanatics know how awesome they are!
