31DC2017 - Orange - flakies and stamping

Welcome to day two of the challenge.  Today's mani is a bit of a let down in photos, cause it looked much better in real life. My orange base is Mango from the Grace-full Fruit Salad collection.  I then sponged on some Colours by Llarowe flakes called The eyebrows.  The flakes have a strong orange, red and green shift and whilst the blended in with the base colour really well, they gave off this iridescent glow, especially with the matte top coat. 

I wish I was able to create more elaborate designs for every prompt. But sometime you just have a mani work and other times is just doesn't. This one is ok I guess. I can already go through the list of manis I've prepared and know which are the better ones, but I know we are always our own worse critic, aren't we! I guess we can't always be hitting home runs, right!
