PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for an honest review

Hello again lovely readers! It’s the beginning of the month, so you know what that means! Fandom Flakes has a new box for us, and this month is the theme Studio Ghibli, specifically the movie Spirited Away. I love this movie so much, if you haven’t seen it, go watch it now! Our guest maker this month is none other than Illyrian Polish, so let’s take a peek!

Bees Knees Lacquer: If You don’t Play With Me, I’ll Cry– a mid-toned nude full of green to blue to purple iridescent flakes and bright gold flakes.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like with a touch of squish factor. This applies very smooth and opaque, and I can see most getting away with two coats.

Night Owl Lacquer: Can’t Beat the Power of Love– a turquoise blue crelly filled with violet/red/gold crystal chameleon flakes and silver/white fleck shimmer.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like with lots of squish and smoothness here too. Those with somewhat longer nails, or if you polish on the lighter side might need three coats.

Illyrian Polish: Thousand Questions– a mauve base packed with silver holo flakes and glitter as well as a mix of orange/green, aqua/indigo, gold/green, and orange/gold iridescent flakes.

Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is jelly like but applies very opaque and builds up quickly to opacity. There’s loads of flakes and sparkles here, but after topcoating I had no texture.

Ribbits and Stickits Waterslide Decals $5

You can add this sheet of decals to your box, they’re so cute! I did a gradient with some free handed ‘stars’ and then applied the images from the sheet with a clear stamper with white painted on the back. You can see a full tutorial on my swatch video!

Ribbits and Stickits Soot Sprite Sticker $5

Another add on for this box is this adorable holographic vinyl. It’s quite large, and roughly the size of my palm (I have large hands, and you can see the comparison in the swatch video too).
