The Chameleon Brocade Series from Born Pretty is a four polish collection of toppers. Each topper has color shifting flakies in it similar to those used directly on the nail from smaller jars, just in polish form! I had a lot of requests to try these out and let people know if they looked similar to using actual flakies, were easier, had any kind of actual color shift, etc. and in my opinion they definitely do, if you sponge them on you can even get a full flakie effect going on as well.
Each of the swatches shown below is one thing coat of of the topper over “Little Black Dress” from Glisten & Glow and then one layer of HK Girl Top Coat from Glisten & Glow unless otherwise noted. All images are shown under natural sunlight bulbs as well. To watch the live swatch click here.
“Dream Castle” is a mix of large and medium flakies that have a dual color shift from blue to purple.
Heart of Ocean
“Heart of Ocean” is a mix of large and medium flakies that have a dual color shift from blue to green with a hint of turquoise in between.
“Forest Secret” is a mix of tiny to medium flakies that have an insane amount of color shift of green to purple to gold to orange, like a mix of a forest and the sunset.
“Roaring Flame is extremely similar to “Forest Secret” it has the same size flakies and same color shift but it also has a hint of more purple and blue within it and the colors have a bit more depth.
Overall these are pretty much the same as throwing on some flakies out of the jar, if you want a fuller look you can get it by sponging them on the same way you would with a chunky holographic glitter.
