I have to come clean… when all these flakies were coming out (Finger Paints, Essie, Zoya, a few others here and there) I was thinking I was already over them. I love my Clairvoyant, and I thought I’d grab a couple of the Finger Paints flakies but honestly they all looked pretty similar. Well, I take it allllll back. I ended up buying all the FP flakies and I love them all. They really are different. Even after I had already bought Motley, Flecked, Flashy and Twisted I thought I didn’t need Asylum and… I was wrong again!!! I bought it on one of my major Sally Beauty hauls with my coupon in January and I just finally got around to trying it. It’s AMAZING!!! I thought Flashy was my favorite… but this might be the new fave.Let’s have a look!
Asylum is a multicolored (color shifting orange and blue) flake glitter polish in a milky/clear base. The flakes are densely packed, and what you see above is two coats over FP Black Expressionism.
I love the formula on this flakies. It’s thick enough to build up, but not problematic at all. Also, it dries really quickly and the milky base doesn’t change the color of your base polish at all. You can layer FP Asylum over anything.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Do I really need to say??? It’s a heck yes, please!!! I love this polish, I love it over black, I think it’d look great over navy blue and I really love how it looks with a navy blue chevron at the tip. Would you like to see those pics? I knew you’d say yes! 😉 Here they come…
Asylum with Cult Nails Time Traveler Chevron:
In real life the chevrons were a little more subtle, which I really liked. I LOVED these nails! They’re dark and vampy yet interesting with the flakes and the blue tip. The blue tip brings out some of the blue flakes and the whole design just goes together and complements the various polishes. After all my talk about being “over” flakies…. I think I’ll be wearing them a lot in many different color combinations.
