Hello again lovely readers! I’ve been quiet this week because I have been working like crazy on many posts for this weekend! I’m kicking it off with August’s Fandom Flakies box! This month we have guest maker Quixotic Polish and the theme is The Office! YAASS. Funny jokes aside, we have three gorgeous polishes and some fun extras for your box too so let’s get to the swatches!
Bees Knees Lacquer- Yellow or Dijon?: a mustard colored polish with a glowing red to green aurora shimmer and red to gold multichrome flakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels rich and creamy on application and builds very quickly to opacity. The flakes are of the small, medium, and large variety and you’ll get a lovely pond effect even with that rich base. The aurora shimmer is crazy strong here and gives off a strong red glow with green at angles. No texture after topcoat.
Night Owl Lacquer- Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.: a light khaki crelly base with holographic flecks and lots of violet/plum/burgundy/copper ultrachrome chameleon flakes.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels like an ultra smooth crelly on application. I’d say for opacity, you’ll need 2-3 coats, though I felt like two was just fine for me. Overall this photographs almost like a white crelly, but I’d like to note that the base color has just at touch of khaki to it. Like a pale grey with a neutral undertone. There’s lots of tiny sparkles to see here, and no problems with the shifty flakes. No texture after topcoat.
Quixotic Polish- Extraordinary Jellybeans: a blackened berry holo with small multichrome flakes that flash gold/copper/green.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula has a heavy, creamy feel on application and builds up very quickly. The holo is very strong and the flakes are of the smaller variety and add a scattered glow overall. My swatches are leaning red on my monitor so please note in person this is more berry toned. My swatch video will give you a better idea of the base color. No texture after topcoat.
Ribbit and Stickits waterslide decals. You can add these to your box for an additional $7. I made a spilled chili
or is it blood to show off Kevin’s awesome chili on my nails!
The preorder for this box is currently open, and will end on August 16th at 11:59 EDT. This month in addition to adding the waterslide decals, you can also add in a lip balm in honor of Kevin in chocolate scent for an addition $4.50 from Bees Knees. The box with the three polishes is $30 plus shipping, and the waterslide decals can be added for an additional $7. This month’s box also includes two vinyl stickers from Ribbit and Stickits (I am Beyoncé always, and Bears Beets Battlestar Galactica). I’ll link you guys below to the shop to grab your box!
