Classy ivory lace over white gold flakie base

HELP I'VE BEEN KIDNAPPED AND SOMEONE SLAPPED SOME CLASSY LACE NAILS ON ME. I have no idea what happened srsly, where are the colours?? The gradients?? The in yo-face BOLDNESS?? Nope, it's not there. It's 'pastel floral' week for this week's weekly nail art challenge (WNAC) that I co-host on Instagram along with lovely ladies Kristin of Lacquerstyle and Tracey of MissBellaTracey, and obvious I was like WHY THE EFF DID I AGREE TO THIS I HATE FLOWERS AND PASTEL. So this was what I came up with... a very unusual interpretation of that theme, obviously.

WHITE GOLD CHROME FLAKIE + HOLO BASE MAKES THIS MANI ACCEPTABLE TO ME. I drew inspiration from a random Sephora make-up bag I got ages ago in some kit I got cause I thought it would make me glowy and flawless or whatever. The only thing glowy and flawless about me now is that I used FUN Lacquer's epic PayDay (H) white gold chrome flakie linear holo polish under the mani... ALDJF;JA;JA;F;JA' classy flashy bitch right hurrr.

So, erm yeah, how come it seems just as easy as buying one of those overly fancy tiny detail nail art brushes in elaborately pretty packaging to make amazing detailed nail arts?? As I found out, this is not how it works. My lines aren't nearly as skinny as the lines some of the other girls can do, I DUN UNDERSTAND. The paint brush is skinny tho?? WHAT AM I DOING WRONG. 

Freehand definitely isn't for everyone I guess... I'VE BEEN PRETENDING TO KNOW HOW TO PAINT ALL ALONG, GOTCHA APRIL 24TH FOOLS. K no but seriously, you're still a nail artist even if you can't paint for shit in my books. There's so many other techniques out there that require serious skill that don't involve a stupid skinny paint brush! Forge forward, abstract art sistahs!

Simply Peel latex barrier - a must-have for flakie and glitter sponging!

I kinda think the nail that I wasn't filming (ring nail) came out better. Sigh, freehand while on a weird camera filming angle is never easy.

Polishes (or rather liquid products) used:
- Acrylic paints
- FUN Lacquer 'PayDay (H)' (white gold chrome flakie with linear holo)
- Simply Peel latex barrier (watch my video review here!)
