Nails Did: Rainbow Flakie Car-Inspired!


Whether or not you’re into cars, here’s a car that will definitely catch your attention: Derek Kloog’s S13 Nissan Silvia. I was so inspired by the outstanding hood decked out in rainbow flakes that I had to recreate the look of this drifting machine onto my nails.

To get this look, I painted my nails purple, then used tape to block off the sides. This serves to mimic the paint job around the hood. I painted the middle black, removed the tape and carefully topped the black with two coats of holographic glitter. I finished off the look with a clear top coat and voila! Nails as smokin’ as one of Kloog’s drifting runs – minus the burnt rubber. 😉

    That’s awesome. I’d try to recreate that but I hate trying to remove glitter polish from my nails and I’m lazy!

    You’re the best Eileen!

  3. Lol have you tried the foil method for removing glitter polish? It’s supposedly really effective, but I haven’t personally tried it since I don’t mind the removal process too much ;P

  4. I have read about that method but again – I’m just that lazy haha.

    I usually drench my nails in pure acetone remover when I use glitter bomb type polishes.
