Happy Friday! It’s time for another Fandom Flakies Box, and for May 2022 the theme is The Mandalorian!
The guest maker for the Fandom Flakies Box for May 2022 is the thermal queen – Fancy Gloss! As always – the guest maker selects the monthly theme and Fancy Gloss selected The Mandalorian!
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 in and take a look at the May box!
Bee’s Knees Lacquer | This Is Acceptable (Reflective)
This Is Acceptable is a clear base with densely packed holo micro flakes, red to gold multichrome flakes, as well as red light reflective glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Despite the flake content – this polish didn’t have a lot of texture and I was able to smooth with one coat of top coat.
Fancy Gloss | The Child (Thermal and Reflective)
The Child is a jelly based thermal that shifts from a slightly dusty Spring green (cold) to a shade that’s in between gold and champaign (warm) with gold to copper flakes and gold reflective glitters. I used 3 thin coats, a thin coat of glitter smoothing topper and a glossy top coat for these photos.
If you don’t have a glitter smoothing topper – 2 coats of top coat should work fine. This shade does dry down with texture, but the thinner the coats, the less texture there will be.
Night Owl Lacquer | This Is The Way
This is The Way is a sheer blue-grey crelly base (that leans more into jelly) and is packed with teal to cobalt to indigo to violet multichrome flakes and bright silver flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This shade could act as a topper over darker colors. The base is sheer enough to lightly tint a darker shade, but it may look muddled if over a lighter/white shade.
Ribbits Stickits | Frogetaboutit 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 will 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.
For May the scent is Yummy Gummy Frogs! This smells like the sweet fruity gummy candy! I’m addicting to gummy candies and I love the smell. I especially love sour gummy candies, but really – any gummy candy will do.
I’m very candy/food motivated.
This is an add on item for $4.50
Ribbits Stickits | The Mandalorian Water Slide Decals
Finally we have 2 sheets of The Mandalorian inspired waterslide 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.
There are other ways to do it – this is my preferred method.
Decals are an add on for $10.00
Fandom Flakies Box May 2022 | The Mandalorian
Another fun month… but I have to admit… I’ve never seen The Mandalorian. Nick and Jacob have, I have it on “the list” but I haven’t really watched anything new other than Netflix shows.
I feel like with the memes I have seen all the important parts though.
Price: $33.00 + Shipping | Acetone Additive: $4.50 | Waterslide Decals: $10.00
