Happy Friday and it’s time to see another set that was set to release today, but the brand decided to kick it off a day early and released this yesterday! We’re going to be looking at the Baroness X Polish Cloudspotting Collection.
The Baroness X Polish Cloudspotting Collection consists of 3 fluid art polishes that can also be used as standalone polishes, as well as a flake topper and a shimmery multichrome polish. There is also an acetone antidote in the set.
For the fluid art polishes I followed the same method and made decals first. I have a silicone mats (affiliate link) that I bring out along with the polishes I want to use. Then I start with a creme polish and add drops of the creme to the mat. Then I use the fluid art polish of choice and drop about 6 drops on top of the creme polish. Then I use a 3rd polish (usually a creme) and add about 5-6 drops of that polish on top of the fluid art polish. Rinse and repeat until I have a nice 6 layer blob of polish sitting on the mat.
Then I lift the mat and start moving it around so the blob spreads out. I watch the fluid art polish for cells and see how it does. If cells aren’t forming like I want, I add more drops of fluid art polish to the top of the now spread out blob and keep going.
I want to spread it out thin enough to be able to dry in a couple hours, but thick enough that it won’t rip as I apply the decal on the nail.
I used to wait 12-24 hours for the decal to dry, but I’m finding 2-4 hours works best for me. This way when I apply it, I can gently “stretch” the decal a little if it’s cut just a smidge too short for my nail. It also doesn’t feel as brittle and overall applies better for me. Everyone has their style and after playing with it for a bit, you’ll find yours too (or you already have)
When the decal is dry, I cut out a piece that roughly is the size of my nail. I try to cut it a little bigger because you can use nail scissors, an orange stick or acetone on a clean up brush to fit it to size. Once I cut the pieces I’ll be using to shape, I apply a thin layer of sticky base coat, let dry so it’s just tacky and then apply the shaped decal over it.
If I cut it a touch too small, I can now manipulate the decal and stretch it a little if needed. Otherwise, I can start using my orange stick to gently press the decal down and then the clean up brush with acetone to clean up edges.
There are other methods and YouTube is a great resource to find other ways of applying fluid art polish.
Let’s jump into this collection though and see what we have going on.
Baroness X Polish | Gloaming (Glow In The Dark)
Gloaming is a white multichrome jelly base with a blue to purple to red to pink to orange to gold shift, black to red multichrome flecks, blue unicorn pee sister pigment, and blue glow in the dark pigment. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This polish will also work as a topper, however – in order for the glow in the dark effect to work well, it is best to layer it over a lighter polish vs a dark one.
Baroness X Polish | Cotton Candy Clouds
Cotton Candy Clouds is a mix of 4 different iridescent flakes that shift opposite colors over black or white, subtle scattered holo, and blue unicorn pee sister pigment. I used 1 coat over a white creme and black creme for these photos.
Baroness X Polish | Light Show (Fluid Art)
Light Show is a medium grey fluid art polish with purple shimmer. I wore this alone on pinky and index in 3 thin coats. For the fluid art I used Maniology Pistachio and Zoya Suzie.
Maniology Pistacio I purchased, Zoya Suzie is PR.
Baroness X Polish | Noctilucent (Fluid Art)
Noctilucent is a deep, glowy blue shimmer fluid art polish. I used this polish alone in 2 coats on pinky and index, and then I did fluid art with Noctilucent, Zoya Palmer (PR) and Vapid Optimist.
Baroness X Polish | Partly Cloudy (Thermal Fluid Art)
Partly Cloudy is a deeper sky blue (cold) to milky white (warm) thermal fluid art polish. I used it alone in 2 coats on pinky and index nails, and I did fluid art with Partly Cloudy, Maniology Chestnut and Vapid Optimist.
Baroness X Polish | Acetone Antidote in Cloud
Acetone Antidote is an additive for your acetone to protect your skin from the harshness of acetone. It contains glycerin and jojoba oil to help protect and moisturize your nails, skin, and cuticles during polish removal. Plus, no more ashy, dry skin! Simply shake up the vial and pour into your polish remover. I generally pour a full vial into a 10 oz pump bottle, but I recommend shaking it and pouring half in and adding more if you feel you need more.
Cloud is a dupe of the Ariana Grande perfume of the same name. I actually had never smelled this perfume, so this was my first experience with it and it’s a winner.
Top: Lavender Blossom, Juicy Pear, Bergamot
Middle: Crème De Coconut, Indulgent Praline,Vanilla Orchid
Base: Sensual Musks, Creamy Blonde Woods
This is a smooth, musky, floral like scent that almost has that late teen/early 20’s flirtiness.
