NOTD: Joe Fresh Gold Rush Twinkle

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I am in flakie heaven!

Wasn't planning on posting 2 NOTD posts in a row, but I thought I should finish the "Joe Fresh week" on a higher note with this flakie duo. I did hint of how cool these 2 individual flakies look. What can be better than that? Them, 2 flakies, layered :)

Joe Fresh Gold Rush, appropriately named, has gold flakes and Joe Fresh Twinkle, also a great name for it, has silver and blue flakes. Together, one coat each, they are explosive!

I was totally in photographing zone, trying to catch the setting sun, and forgot to switch the prop, so Gold Rush got full bottle shot attention in these 3 pics.

Did anybody tell you how hard it is to photograph flakies? Well I tell you now. They go into hiding under flash or direct sunlight, regardless how blingy they look IRL (see the last pic below). So the best option is low light, which blurs out the pics a bit. Gah I can't win.

Hope the pics I managed to get here give you enough motivation to try them yourself still :) And if you are wondering, the base is Catrice London's Weather Forecast, just one coat.
