PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for an honest review
Hello lovely readers! Today I’m showing you all the August 2020 Fandom Flakies box! This month we have the guest maker Amanda of Cuticula and our theme is Maleficent. I’m such a fan of the character and movies, they’re so good and this box is awesome. Let’s take a peek!
Bees Knees Lacquer: There’s No Such Thing– a blackened polish with rose gold magnetic pigment and gold to green ghost flakes.
Swatches show three coats with topcoat/magnetized. The formula is jelly like, and feels quite metallic on the brush strokes. I personally preferred going to a third coat to get lots of pigment on the nail for the magnetic effect. The pigment easily moves with a magnet, and it’ll leave those shifty iridescent flakes in the background.
Night Owl Lacquer: Hello Beastie– a blackened burgundy with blue/violet/red crystal chameleon flakes.
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is jelly like, but builds up quickly. This is loaded with larger types of flakes, so I’d suggest going in thin on your coats to really maximize the amount you’ll get on your nails. In indoor lighting it’ll appear mostly at that lovely sapphire blue and at extreme angles they’ll shift over to violet. The base color heavily flirts with black and I’d suggest a good glossy topcoat to give that juicy appearance.
Cuticula: I Revoke My Curse– a deep blue jelly base with shifting chameleon chrome flakes that shift green to blue and lilac to golden green, and green, blue, and purple metallic micro flakes
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like, and builds up quickly. This has a lovely dense type of formula so depending on your preference, you can probably get away with two coats. There’s loads of sparkles against that very flattering base color. This also dries down heavily flat, so I’d suggest a good glossy topcoat to get those sparkles to pop.
