Hello again readers! We take a welcome turn to the Halloween season creeping around the corner with this month’s Fandom Flakies box! Our guest maker is Ethereal Lacquer, and the theme is Scary Stories: to tell in the dark! Those book scared the hell out of me as a kid, and I still love them today… though they still give me the creeps haha! Let’s get to the swatches!
Ethereal Lacquer: Scarecrow– Inspired by the scary story Harold. Described as a dusty and deepened teal, almost grey base with iridescent colorshifting flakies that shift from red, copper gold and green and a heavy dose of complimenting aurora shimmers.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is rich and dense and builds quickly to opacity. The flakes and matching shimmer are crazy shifty, you’ll see them as a rich coppery red in bright lights with an easy shift to green and gold. No texture after topcoat, and the flakes applied even and flat for me.
Night Owl Lacquer: High Beams – a blackened purple jelly with lots of purple/red/copper crystal chameleon flakes, platinum flakes and silver holoflake glitter.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels like a rich, dense jelly and again builds crazy fast to opacity. The silver flakes give a reflective sparkle along with a strong scattered sparkle from the glitters and the chameleon flakes give a lovely rainbow pond effect. No texture after topcoat.
Bees Knees Lacquer: The Pale Lady-inspired by the story The Dream, this is a pale griege polish with eerie teal shimmer, scattered holo, and multichrome flakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels jelly like and builds up quickly, those with longer nails may need to go to three coats. The flakes behaved easily for me, and the shimmer is lovely appearing as an aqua green in the background of the larger flakes. No texture after topcoat. In person this is a touch more grey than my swatches (which I feel are leaning more white).
Lastly, you can add the lovely Ribbit and Stickits waterslide decals to your box for $5, here I placed them over High Beams and a lightly sponged white in the background to make them pop:
Boxes go up for sale 7/12 at noon EDT, and ends 7/19 at 11:59pm EDT. The box includes all three polishes for $30 plus shipping. You can add the waterslide decals to your box for $5. Be sure to check out my swatch video to see these beauties in action!
Thanks so much for reading! ❤
