Hey everyone. Hope you are having a fun day. I would like to share this Iridescent Loose Flakies Nail Design with you all that I did recently. Added little Geode detail and it looks so pretty with the stunning flakies. Read on to know how I did this Nail Art.

Items and Tools I Used

  • Base Coat Nail Polish
  • Black Nail Polish ~ Maybelline Color Show Onyx Rush
  • Iridescent Loose Flakies
  • Pearl Nail Polish ~ Essence Sparkling Water Lilies
  • Wine Red(dark) Nail Polish ~ Avon Wine and Dined
  • Aqua Blue Shimmer Nail Polish ~ Colorbar Peacock Blue
  • A Toothpick
  • Nail Foil Glue
  • Nail Art Fan Brush
  • A pair of Scissors and a Tweezer
  • Top Coat

How I did the Nail Design

The Geode detail in this nail design is one of my DIY nail decals. I did this nail decal a day before painting my nails. It’s fairly simple to create this geode effect. Take a plastic bag/freezer bag and clean the surface with a cotton pad soaked in polish remover.

Apply a think layer of pearl nail polish. Add few drops of wine red over it. Drop in couple of dots of aqua blue shimmer polish. Now get a toothpick and swirl through the polish to get some interesting patterns. Leave it overnight to dry. Then peel the decal off the plastic cover using a pair of tweezer. Cut out a pattern of your liking to use it in the nail art.

Now onto the Nail Art! Apply a good base coat on all the nails and let it dry for a smooth and long lasting manicure. Apply a black polish on all the nails. Give it some time to dry. Apply foil glue on middle two finger nails. When the glue dries clear, sprinkle some Iridescent Flakies using a fan brush.

Apply some clear polish on the index finger and pinky finger. Place the cut out nail decal using a tweezer. Now seal the whole design with top coat and you’re done! The flakies I used in this design are from Born Pretty Store (PR sample). These multichrome Iridescent Flakies are breath taking as you can see in the pictures.

A black base color makes it pop and brings out the best effect. It also works on white base color but I have yet to try it over a white polish. The flakies I got is Item # 40879. I would highly recommend to try this Flakies. You can get this at for less than $2. Use the code DEMIG10 for 10% off on everything you buy.
