Berlin in 2010

Mavala Berlin topped with a FlorMar and then Nubar 2010. Only ever so slightly washed-out by the flash. Really loving this Mavala grey.

Wish things weren't named after specific years though. Whatever happened to 1984? I could never reread the book now. And 2001? One of my favourite films but the actual 2001 was such a sore disappointment that even that is now somewhat spoiled.

You see, I was born in 1955 and when I was small I thought of 2000 as the science-fiction-future. After all, I'd be 45. Forty-whole-five! I really believed we'd all be time-travelling. I looked at Dr Who and Star Trek (and indeed 2001:Space Odyssey) as pretty firm predictions. I was thoroughly convinced I'd have a small aircraft/vehicle of my own - very much like Fifth Element.  We all know the rather pedestrian reality. 

How horribly off-topic I have strayed. What I really want to know is this. What flakies are available in the UK apart from the Nubar and GOSH Rainbow? I have Barielle Elle's Spell and a Kinetic with flakies but surely there have to be some others. It's driving me nuts!



  1. This is so pretty! I'm sending some followers your way!

  2. So pretty! I'm all about the flakies and glitter at the moment. I'm going through nail polish remover and tin foil quite quickly due to this though! :) The UK has a severe lack of flakies! xx

  4. Hi I have some Andrea Fulerton Gemstone Overcoat
    from Superdrug.They appear very similiar to the flakies you already have, but cost a princely £4.99.

  5. That is gorgeous! I must try it. I love watching old things set in the 'far distant future' like when marty Mcfly goes to 2015 and there's hoverboards. We BETTER have those in 4 years or I will feel so cheated!
    Inglot do some flakies! :)
