Laid-Back 31 DC: Duo Chrome, Flakie or Holo

Today is day 8 of the challenge and the theme is duo chrome, flakie or holo. Sadly I have exactly 0 holo polishes, so duo chrome and flakie it is. I swear the base polish looks like duo chrome in the bottle, but on my nails I get nothing. It should be blue with a shift to purple, but it just doesn't translate.
Here are some angles to show the color shift of the flakie. I started out with a thin coat of black (just in case) but I didn't really need it. One coat of this shimmery blue/purple polish covered really well. It's a polish from E.L.F. which apparently has no name other than 20417. Someone needs to tell E.L.F. that's lame. Half the fun of polish is the ridiculous names. I added a coat of Finger Paints flakies called Flashy. I'd say this one lives up to its name. I love to watch it shift from red/orange to yellow/green.

Here's a closer shot. It shows the blue shimmer really as well as the full color range of the flakies.

I'm really excited to see what everyone else came up with for today. These are definitely some of my favorite types of polish.
