Happy Pink Wednesday!

Yep, it's Pink Wednesday again!  Sometimes, it's a little difficult to come up with a mani for this specific day every week. I don't want to bore everyone with the same look, but on the other hand, there are some looks I'm just loving right now, such as today's feature.

Can you guess what it is?

If you guessed flakies, you're right! :P It's even colors I've showcased before, but I changed the mani just a little bit this time. Started with 2 coats of Be a Dahlia Won't You? from OPI. This is perhaps one of my favorite pinks; it's a medium pink chalk full of glass flecks to make it sparkle. Just lovely.

I let that dry, and applied 2 coats of I Lily Love You! and topped that with SV. Once that was all dry, I applied on coat of Matte-ly in Love from Hard Candy. This is the first I've matted something other than a creme polish, and I really like how it turned out. BADWY? practically glows even though it's matte. Take a look!

Oh, and I was right about yesterday's mani. That was prolly one of the most difficult glitters I've ever had to remove, and that was using acetone >.> As fun as it was, it may be awhile before I use it again lol.
