Fandom Flakies Box July 2023 | Barbie

by Lisa Heath


Happy Wednesday! Who’s ready for the next Fandom Flakies Box? The July 2023 box has a theme of… Barbie!

For July – Painted Polish joins the Fandom Flakies Box and they selected the theme Barbie. Unfortunately due to time constraints – I do not have a video this month – but I will have one next month.

If you are newer here, let’s go over the Fandom Flakies basics! 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. 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.

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.

All polishes within the box are exclusive to the box. I believe the Ribbits Stickits items are as well.

You can also sign up for subscriptions! This allows you to basically auto pay for the box each month to be sure you don’t miss it. Each month the subscription auto renews on the 13th (or 15th?) and you have until the 1st of the month to “pause” the sub if you don’t want the next one. There are 2 subscription options, the $33.00 options for just the 3 polishes, and there is a $43.00 options where you receive the 3 polishes and $10 worth of Ribbits Stickits goodies (usually water slide decals or vinyl sticker)

Okay, hope that was clear… it was a lot. But let’s dive in and take a look!

Bee’s Knees Lacquer | Beach Off

Beach Off is an aqua crelly base with pink to blue iridescent flakes and pink to gold to green ultrachrome chameleon flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Night Owl Lacquer | Did You Bring Your Rollerblades?

Did You Bring Your Rollerblades? is a bright but mellow yellow crelly base filled with iridescent red to orange to green to yellow flakes and fuchsia holographic shreds. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Painted Polish | Let’s Go Party!

Let’s Go Party! is a Barbie pink crelly base with blue metallic flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Ribbits Stickits | 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.

Ribbits Stickits | Un-Frog-gettable Hand & Cuticle Cream

This hand and cuticle cream is thick enough so it can be used every day in small amounts, or slather it on at night for a more intensive treatment.

The July scent is ‘Life In Plastic, It’s Fantastic’ and the official description is:

Blend of berries, vanilla, toasted coconut, and a touch of Hawaiian punch

This is a sweeter scent that is mellowed a bit by the vanilla and coconut. It’s nicely done and I’ve been using this non stop.

Fandom Flakies Box July 2023 | Barbie

The entire time I was swatching this, I had Barbie Girl by Aqua in my head. If memory serves – that song came out when I was in 8th grade? Possibly early Freshman year.. around that time period.

I have already convinced Jacob to see the movie with me when it releases too. I see all the Star Wars movies with him, so.. he owes me.

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.
