Blue negative space with flakies

Other mani inspired by one I saw on Instagram, this time by @kgrdnr aka  

I started with a layer of base coat, and when then was try I taped off the two vertical stripes on each nail.  I then painted my nails using OPI DS Fantasy.  DS Fantasy is an outstanding one coater, so after just one coat I pulled off the striping tape and then added top coat.

Next I applied two thin coats of Dance Legend Cany Flakes Sun Still Sleeps.  Sun Still Sleeps has a bright blue jelly base and is full of red to green colour shifting flakies.  To finish the mani I added a stripe of matte top coat down the flakie, cause everyone knows flakies look better mattified.

I really loved the matte/glossy mix together with the negative space design.
