Alter Ego Nail Enamel; Fantastic Flakies Group Custom Abie's Irish Rose

Afternoon beauties.  I was super busy this past weekend so I didn't have a chance to post anything for you to read.  Sorry 'bout that!  I play in a sand soccer tournament, my son was in a tournament and I also had regular league games.  So yup, I'm officially tan.  And now I'm catching up again (aren't I always?).  So let's start with this green, flakie polish from Alter Ego!  It's called Abie's Irish Rose and it's a custom for the Fantastic Flakies Facebook group.  You know the must be a member to purchase the polish!  I'll provide you with the links below.  Abie's Irish Rose is available now to members and is $4.50/$9 depending on the bottle size.  Ok let's jump in and check it out!

Abie's Irish Rose is a sheer green full of shimmery particles, dark green (maybe charcoal?) flakies and large metallic green flakes.  It's a gorgeous shade of green, vibrant and fresh.  I did feel the formula was a bit too sheer and would have really loved to see this in a full coverage shade.  But It will be easy to throw on a matching base shade to get that VNL to go away.  But I also feel the sheerness shows how delicate the polish is, much like the picture of the rose that inspired it.  I used 4 coats here and finished with topcoat.
