Takko Tuesday! - Surrealistic

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Today, I have an older but oh so beautiful Takkito to share with you.  A few summers ago, Takko Lacquer came out with some fantastic shifty flakie polishes.  "Surrealistic" was one of them.  This is a clear based polish that is jam packed full of color shifting ultrachrome metallic flakies.  They are fairly small in size and lay smooth on the nail.  You can wear it as a topper but I prefer it full coverage to get the most flakitastic effect.  I am showing you three coats on its own in these swatches.  Both with a glossy top coat and a matte top coat.  Gotta matte all the flakies, yo!

Using two light sources at different angles, I am able to show off the shift of this polish better for you.  These metallic flakies shift from gold to green to pink to purple.  I would say the overall color effect is a golden green but the pink and purple peak through at an angle.  So pretty!

    1. They are so lovely. I am partial to the shimmers but these flakies are to die for!
