Blue Opal Manicure

Howdy, everyone!  Check me out, 3 posts in 3 days!  Woot, woot!  I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far.  Before I get to my manicure for the day, I wanted to remind you all to enter my giveaway.  I'm accepting entries until 1/16, so make sure to get yours in!  

Now, for the nails!  Today's mani is a simple, but gorgeous, combo.  Take a look:

I started with 2 coats of Essence Colour & Go in Let's Get Lost, a lovely turquoise blue creme.  LGL is one of my favorite blues ever; a perfect, bright, summer-y color.  On top of that gorgeous blue, I layered 2 coats of Zoya's Opal Flake Effect Top Coat, a blue to green flakie in a clear green base.  Wow!  This combo was knock-your-socks-off lovely!  I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to get a great shot of the color, which is much more green than these photos show.  There really is nothing like a flakie for wow factor.  I wanted to do a matte top coat on this but, unfortunately, I got a few chips after one day of wear and didn't want to redo the whole thing...maybe next time.  

Here's another view:

You can see the flakie a bit better in this one I think.  

I've got some great manicures planned over the next few weeks, so I hope you'll stop back in to check them out.  Thanks so much for reading!
