Pastel Skittle featuring Flash Nails Bubble Bath

Another quick vault post for you, featuring another birthday present. Mr Magpie bought me two Flash Nails glitters, Disco Lights and Bubble Bath. I wanted to try Bubble Bath, but I couldn’t decide what base colour to use. So, I used all of them!


I love the way different colours of the glitter pop on each base! This is the only pic I took, unfortunately. I will have to recreate it again soon!


Here’s what I used:

Thumb – 3 coats Sally Hansen Smooth & Perfect Sorbet
Index – 3 coats Essie Romper Room (horrible thin, runny, streaky formula!)
Middle – 2 coats Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor One Big Happy Fame-ily
Ring – 3 coats Sally Hansen Smooth & Perfect Sea
Pinky – 3 coats Sally Hansen Smooth & Perfect Air

The Sally Hansens I picked up from Poundworld recently, they are a bit on the sheer side but do build up nicely. I love the big chunky square bottles too! The Essie was horrible, I can’t seem to find a pastel pink creme with a reasonable formula. I couldn’t find a lilac creme in my stash (I do have one just misplaced it!) so I used the OPI which was fine except for a shimmer. The glitter in Bubble Bath mostly hid that though.

Bubble Bath contains big pastel circles, with a kind of satin finish, and silver micro-glitter. It is very unusual, and I love the effect! I didn’t have to fish for the circles, in fact I had to be careful not to get too many on my nails at once.

Flash Nails polishes are available from, and you can follow them on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
