I of course can not pass up any new gel polish. It’s basically impossible since I’m so obsessed with gel polish. I only picked up one of the trends to try. I picked up Rough Around The Edges which is an flakie top coat.
I used Gelish Garden Teal Party as the base coat, then followed by two coats of Rough Around The Edges on my ring and thumb finger. It applied with no problem. After I used the top coat it smoothed out the flakies that stuck up out of the polish which were very few to being with.
This polish is so hard to capture on camera. It’s such a lovely golden and light pink flakie. I really think this flakie would shine better over a red polish.
Below I painted this polish over the tips of the swatch nails. On the far right is one nail swatch completely covered with Rough Around the Edges. As you can see it can’t really be worn alone, this must be used as a topper.
I know these swatches don’t look that impressive I still really like this flakie top coat. First Gel polish flakie I’ve seen. I can’t wait to try this over a red polish!
Sally Beauty Supply all in December 2013 is having a buy 2 gelish polishes for $20 excluding base and top coat, and treatments. I suggest picking up this trend polish in this deal!
