Happy Tuesday! I’m a little early – but it’s time to take a look at the Fandom Flakies Box for December 2022… and the theme is The Great British Bake Off!
I can’t believe this is the final box of 2022! To finish off the year, LynBDesigns is the guest maker, and they picked the theme ‘The Great British Bake Off’. Check out the YouTube video below if you’d like to see these in action and swatched.
So basically Fandom Flakies Box has 2 constant makers – Night Owl Lacquer and Bee’s Knees Lacquer. Ribbits Stickits is also a familiar face to the box – bringing fun add ons to the box to really bring the theme to life. Then there is a guest maker. The guest maker each month picks the theme for the box and the themes range from video games to tv shows to movies. Sometimes others – but those are the most common. Basically anything with a possible “fandom” is fair game in this box.
Every month when the shop opens there are 40 Ready To Ship boxes made. Usually it will be said as “RTS” and that’s what that means. They are ready to go.
When you purchase a box, you will only receive the 3 polishes. It’s a flat rate of $33 plus shipping for the 3 polishes, and if you want to add Ribbits Stickits goodies – then the price goes up depending on what is added. But the baseline is $33 for the 3 polishes shown.
Want only the Ribbits Stickits addons? That’s perfectly fine – you can buy those alone as well.
Once the 40 RTS boxes are gone – they essentially go into preorder. The preordered boxes will ship between 2-4 weeks after the shop closes. They do aim for sooner but as we all know – USPS has a mind of its own and it’s just not always possible.
All polishes within the box are exclusive to the box. I believe the Ribbits Stickits items are as well.
Let’s jump right in.
Bee’s Knees Lacquer | No Soggy Bottoms
No Soggy Bottoms is a medium grape purple jelly base with purple to red to gold to green multichrome flakes and silver holo flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Night Owl Lacquer | Bake It Till You Make It
Bake It Till You Make It is a sheer burgundy jelly base loaded with fuchsia to red to gold shifting micro flake shimmer. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
LynBDesigns | Septuagenarian Velociraptor
Septuagenarian Velociraptor is a sheer, muted denim blue jelly base base with scattered black micro flakes, green to blue to purple shifting flakes and scattered holo sparkle. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Ribbits Stickits | Acetone Additive
Frogetaboutit Acetone Additive is a small vial of liquid that you shake up and pour into your acetone to lessen the harsh effects. It takes away that ashy look acetone can leave behind on your skin, plus gives a burst of scent to sort of cover up the smell of acetone.
If you are new to Acetone Additive, I suggest you shake the vial, pour in half, test the acetone and then pour in more as you see fit. Depending on your skin type and what type of remover you use, the amount of additive needed with vary. If you tend to have oily skin – too much will make you oily, too little and it won’t seem like you used any. It’s a balancing act so add a little, test and add more as needed.
The December scent is Mary Berry’s Gingerbread House: fresh baked bread with spice notes of cinnamon, clove, ginger, nutmeg and vanilla beans.
The scent is pretty dead on – before reading the description, I knew it was gingerbread.
This is an add on item and will be $4.50
Ribbits Stickits | Vinyl Sticker
The vinyl sticker this month is a gold holo star and black font that says “Star Baker”
Instructions on how to apply will be included, and I show it in the video at the top of this post.
This is a $4.00 Add on
Ribbits Stickits | Water Slide Decals
December’s box brings one sheet of The Great British Bake Off themed water slide decals!
These are like temporary tattoos for your nails. I usually cut the image I want off the sheet, set in water for 10-15 seconds, then remove the image from water and place face down on a stamping head. Then I slide the paper backing off leaving just the image on the stamper. Then I stamp the image down onto my nail firmly, lift stamper and then top coat.
Decals are an add on for $7.00

Remember – you can grab the Ribbits Stickits items without grabbing the box, as well as the box without grabbing the Ribbits Stickits. I keep saying this because it’s probably the #1 question I get regarding this box.
