Doesn't that look promising?!
Too Fancy Lacquer Fantasia is, as I said, a deep dark blue jelly with shimmery copper flakes. It has a lot of depth and sparkle and really needs to be seen in real life to be fully appreciated. The formula was okay, it applied evenly in 2 coats and finished with topcoat it dries down very shiny.
Too Fancy Lacquer Keep Calm and Love Unicorns is a lilac holo with what seems to be a pink flash. I already used this shade before in my blobbicure and I love it as much by itself as well. The formula was a bit thinner, less creamy, so I used 3 coatd for full opacity, but it was heavenly to apply. Not runny or pooling my cuticles. Finished with topcoat.
Too Fancy Lacquer Pink Flames is a very red leaning shade, especially on my skintone. Seeing other swatch pictures I am starting to think my bottle might be mislabeled..? Who knows, it might just be a batch difference combined with different lighting and such. The formula was similar to Keep Calm and Love Unicorns, thinner but not runny nor pooling, so again I used 3 coats for full opacity and topped with topcoat.
Especially now the days are getting warmer and sunnier, the holo's are speaking to me again, and Keep Calm and Love Unicorns is a gorgeous shade for those days (besides having an awfully cute name. Fantasia was definitely a positive surprise to me and it's great to see Charlene creates beautiful shades even though they aren't her signature holographic ones! Pink Flames might not look pink at all, but it's a stunner either way.
