I had got a bunch of Inglot polishes and a few flakies some time back.
There has been a lot of interest generated around flakies.
Below is a swatch of Inglot nail Enamel 835.
Cost: Rs.490/- for 15ml ($10). It was quite sheer, what you see below is 3 coats.
Its a purple with pearl finish with a really small blue shimmer.
The bottle looked like it would be a duo-tone polish, but it isn't.
Surprisingly the brush of Inglot's nail enamels is really small. I had to put atleast 3 swipes to cover my tiny nails..which can be a bit tiresome if you have broader nails.
Inglot says: these are toluene- formaldehyde- dibutyl phthalate (DBP)- camphor free.
Below is a bottle pic of #203. See how the flakies dance in light.
Cost: Rs.490/- for 8ml. ($10)
Inglot has 2 kinds of flakies.
One of them is the series from #201 to #207 which are smaller bottles ($10/Rs490/- for 8ml) in size but have densely packed flakies. One coat is quite sufficient to give the flakie effect but you can do 2 for more shine.
The other one is the XL series. ranging from XL1 to XL7: These costs the same but have a bigger quantity (15ml). These less dense than the #201-207 series. I got XL7 from this series (will swatch soon.)
This is one coat of #203 over #835.
These flakies give a nice jewel toned effect.
#203 is duo-toned; changing from blue to green in various angles of light and will also reflect a bit of the base colour.
These feel pretty smooth and not at all gritty and were easy to remove as well. Not at all like the glitters.
Hope you liked #203. Will soon swatch the other flakies too.
