Happy Sunday! I have the Fandom Flakies Box for March 2023 up today – and the theme is Squishmallows!
For March – Fair Maiden Polish joins Fandom Flakies and they selected the theme of Squishmallows! To see this entire box swatched and demonstrated, check out my YouTube channel below:
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 | Gengar Style
Gengar Style is a pale, cool toned purple jelly base loaded with holo flakes, gold iridescent flakes and matte black flakes. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Night Owl Lacquer | Sloth Kisses
Sloth Kisses is a clear pase loaded with violet to pink to gold shifting shimmer, as well as micro flakes in a mix of taupe, rose gold metallic and holographic. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Fair Maiden Polish | Shake Your Tailfeathers!
Shake Your Tailfeathers! is a vibrant blue jelly base loaded with green to blue to violet shifting shimmer, as well as iridescent and multichrome flakes in a rainbow of color shifts. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
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 March scent for Squishmallows is Toasted Coconut S’mores and it’s described as a sweet, rich blend of coconut, chocolate, graham crackers with a butter cream and vanilla base.
It smells almost exactly as described, but the vanilla and butter cream are the stand out notes. I only detected some coconut and the chocolate is a super soft player in this game.
This is an add on item for $7.50 (it is 2 ounces)
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.
This month there is only 1 sheet for Squishmallows and it is as an add-on for $8.
Fandom Flakies Box March 2023 | Squishmallows
I honestly don’t own any Squishmallows and my son isn’t into them, but this is still a really fun theme. I did expect more pastel or bright polishes to go with the theme – but the polishes are still beautiful. Just more personal observation – but maybe I’ve only seen brighter/pastel like Squishmallows?
Price: $33.00 + Shipping (Polish Only) | $43.00 + Shipping (Polishes + Waterslide Decal sheet & Vinyl) | Hand & Cuticle Cream: $7.50 | Acetone Additive: $4.50 | Waterslide Decals: $8.00 | Cow Vinyl: $4.00

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.
