I told you guys, I’m on a roll today with catching up and getting these posts published like a mad woman! Here we have the May Fandom Flakies box, and this month the theme is The Umbrella Academy! I’m ashamed to say I have not seen it yet, but trust me this mage plans on binging it ASAP since I’m on summer break! This month’s box features guest maker Dollish Polish, let’s get to the pretties!
Night Owl Lacquer Ut Malum Pluvia – this was inspired by their uniforms and the crest. Described as a black base with blue/navy/violet & red/copper/gold UCC flakes, gold crystal flakes and white shreds.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels like a rich, glossy jelly and applies very opaque on the nail. I was so mad that my swatches and video really don’t do this one justice as there’s loads of sparkle and flakes that contrast against that inky black base. No texture after topcoat.
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula feels like a true jelly and gives a lovely pond effect with the shimmers and flakes. I think depending on your preference 2-3 coats will work, though two coats gives a more delicate bluer appearance with three coats appearing more vampy.
Ribbit Stickit’s waterslide decal sheet (can be added to the box for $5) Be sure to check out my swatch video to see a quickie tutorial on how I made this mani!
The box will be $30 plus shipping, and you can add in extras such as a themed wax (this month is No. 6- inspired by Ben, a ghostly blue wax melt that smells of clean rain with hints if tropical fruits and smoke) and water slide decal sheet for $4.50 and $5, respectively.
Thanks so much for reading!
