And now for the rest of my swatches of the Sparkle & CO. Mylar Flakes. Each one has it’s own special magic! Be sure to read the first part to see the rest of the Sparkle & CO. Mylar Flakes swatches (HERE)!
• My Tips for application: For the more metallic, heavier flakes, use a heavier gel type topcoat for a coat over the flakes. I like Gelous (available at Sally’s). This makes a heavier top coat, 1-2 coats, for a smoother finish. The larger the flakes, the stiffer they are so I just don’t use the big ones. The more curved the nail, the smaller pieces you want to use. I use a thin coat of clear top coat (with regular polish) then while wet apply flakes as desired. Let dry then top with clear, thicker top coat. Another good gel like top coat is from Walmart (but there are lots of brands out there) is Nail-Aid No Light Gel Top Coat. It is in a black bottle. For gel polish just apply flakes over top coat, cure, another top coat, cure.
Another method is a dip method for extreme coverage. Dip wet nail into flakes, or sprinkle on, press as desired, cure, or dry, add top coat, or two.
CONCLUSION: How fun are these? I know mylar has been out for a while and real nail artists (me excluded) can come up with some super creative ideas and ways to use them. For purposes of getting them swatched quickly I went for fairly simple. My excuse and I’m sticking to it! lol Anyway, they are fun and as easy to use as any nail art gem. You are only limited by your creativity!
