October 2016 Customs for Holo-Maniacs and Fantasmic Flakies: Swatches and Review
*Sent by makers for review*
Long time, no blog! I'm back today with the October 2016 customs that were created for both Holo-Maniacs and Fantasmic Flakies, two groups that I created on Facebook. Each month, we have two featured makers who create gorgeous polishes based off of member-submitted and voted inspiration pictures. Let's take a look at what we have for this month!
Holo-Maniacs Customs for October 2016
Sassy Pants Polish Dark Opal (Holo-Maniacs Custom #8)
Nail Hoot Lacquer Holo-Maniacs Custom #9
The second featured brand for Holo-Maniacs is Nail Hoot Lacquer! Brandie of Nail Hoot created a polish that is described as a deep red linear holo. Holo-Maniacs Custom #9 had an impeccable formula (it was my first polish from Nail Hoot), and I was able to get it opaque in two smooth coats. Shown is with one layer of glossy top coat.
Fantasmic Flakies Customs for October 2016
Lou It Yourself Trip the Lights Flaketastic
Lou from Lou It Yourself created a deep but bright blue polish packed with glass fleck and purple flakies. The formula was nice and smooth, and it dried quickly to boot! Shown are three thin coats, plus one layer of glossy top coat and one layer of matte top coat.
DIFFERENT dimension Raindrops on Roses
The second maker for Fantasmic Flakies is Missi from DIFFERENT dimension, and she created two different polishes! The first is called Raindrops on Roses.
DIFFERENT dimension Raindrops on Roses is described as a medium violet jelly with added shimmers to create a duochrome effect. Added multi-chrome and sterling silver flakies. As with all DD polishes that I own, this was opaque in three thin, easy coats. Dry time was great, both between coats and when completed. Shown is with one layer of glossy top coat and one layer of matte top coat.
DIFFERENT dimension Storms Don't Last Forever
The second of Missi's creations, Storms Don't Last Forever, is described as a violet to copper to gold multi-chrome polish with added multi-chrome flakies, shimmer, and holographic flakies. Shown are three thin, easy coats, plus one layer of glossy top coat and one layer of matte top coat.
