Glam Polish Over the Rainbow Flakies Part 3

We are just days away from the release of part 3 of the Over the Rainbow Flakies Collection! You can refresh your memory and check out part 1 HERE and part 2 HERE.

Part 3 goes on sale April 1st 5pm EST time USA, which is April 2nd 8am AEST time Australia. At this time the April collection will also be released.

For each of my swatches I used three thin coats plus a glossy top coat, then added a matte top coat. I like the use of the matte top coat over the flakies because it helps to cut out some of the harsh lighting and it can make the flakies more visible.





"Kilauea" - Named after one of the volcanoes on the Hawaiian Islands. A black jelly base with subtle holo and packed with rainbow iridescent flakies and rainbow glass flecks. For me this is the best one out of the whole collection. It is the definition of the collection with so many beautiful colours reflecting through the base. I just wish I could have captured it the way I saw it!

"Lehua" - Meaning flower of the Ohi'a tree (and also the name of one of the islands). This polish is a beautiful berry red holo with green/teal iridescent flakies and turquoise glass flecks. Simply stunning (oh, how I do love my reds)! The colours of the flakies gives such a pretty contrast against the base colour when the light catches them.

"Moana" - Meaning ocean. A bright blue subtle holo base with indigo/teal iridescent flakies, deep blue and light blue glass flecks. Reflecting the beauty and mystery of the deep depths of the ocean.

"Mauna Loa" - Names after one of the Hawaiian volcanoes.  Flame red base with holo and filled with green/yellow iridescent flakies, green, gold, and blue glass flecks. I would call it a flame orange base, but the description given to me by Rachel says flame red (I would be totally lost with out Rachel's polish descriptions). It is like my nails are on fire! This polish is so bright and with the flakies and holo it is simply illuminating. The name and meaning behind the name suit the look of the polish perfectly!

"Lani" - meaning sky or heavens. A beautiful subtle holo with rainbow iridescent flakies, with blue, purple, and magenta glass flecks. I would describe the base colour as a blurple. At times, especially depending on the light, it looks more blue or more purple.
