I should probably declare October to be Flakies Month, but that would inevitable make me not want to swatch all the flakies. Anyway, don’t be surprised if you see loads of flakies in the near future.
China Glaze Concrete Catwalk
Concrete Catwalk is a deep grey crème. It’s always hard do say if a grey is truly neutral, the lighting can easily play tricks on you, but to me it does look quite stark. However it has an innate creaminess which softens it a bit. Two coats are perfectly opaque.
This polish has a perfect formula, it’s slightly on the thicker side, yet applies smoothly and mostly evenly. The first coat had a few bare spots, but it was utter perfection upon applying the second coat. As always: China Glaze’s round brush is nice, but not great.
Here’s Concrete Catwalk in two coats with top coat (which on all photos was super-reflecty. Boo):
This time I used Golden Rose Scale Effect 04 to add some flakiness to the grey:
Now as for swatching the flakies: I’ll definitely do some kind of skittle swatch. Would you prefer to see the same base on each finger with different flakies or differently coloured bases with the same flaky polish layered over them?
