Fiendish Fancies Review and Swatches

Good morning everyone! Happy Monday! Once again we have some lovely Fiendish Fancies for your viewing pleasure. Again, these all have fabulous formulas and capture their respective inspirations so, so well.

Our first polish is very seasonally appropriate as we have now officially entered the wonderful season of Fall! Spaghetti Tuesday (every Wednesday) is an orange jelly with orange and brown multi-shaped glitter (spaghetti and meat balls) inspired by Menu planning in Cell Block C. This is for all the Walking Dead fans and it's part of the Fiendish Fancies Dead Walk Collection. 

I am wearing one coat over OPI A Roll in the Hague. You could build this up on its own but I love it over this vibrant orange creme. 

Next is Hunted by the Devil from the Penny Dreadfuls series. Hunted by the Devil is a black with solid gold shimmer inspired by hair as black as a raven wing. So stunning! I seriously love this polish so much. I am wearing two coats with top coat. Get this!

Lastly is I Can Feel Myself Rot. Okay, I love the name and this polish is so unique and captures rotting zombie flesh so well. It is described as a deep Moss Green with Iridescent flecks inspired by the unkempt graves at the Resurrection Cemetery. I am wearing two coats with top coat. 

These polishes are now available in the Fiendish Fancies shop as individual bottles. You can follow Fiendish Fancies on Facebook and Instagram for updates and more swatches from other bloggers. *Products were provided for our honest review.*

Lynnderella Pink Starfish + Fiendish Fancies It Eats You Alive

For anyone who is a Lynnderella fan, you know about those polishes. Those polishes that literally everyone lusts over and those polishes that have some sort of epic status among fans. In my mind, Lynnderella Pink Starfish is one of those polishes. I got really lucky and fluked into this polish by total chance. I am happy to be sharing it with all of you today. 

Star glitters. Let's talk about them for a minute. I seriously love them. They might be one of my favorite types of glitter and those nano stars that Lynn uses?... Heavenly! This polish is packed with stars... pink satin stars, pink holographic stars, nano stars... all in a hot pink jelly base packed with microglitter. Yummy! This polish like bubblegum for mermaids. 

See what I mean? That macro is drool-worthy. And Fiendish Fancies It Eats You Alive was the absolute perfect base for the Lynnderella. I used 3 coats of It Eats You Alive and 1 coat of Pink Starfish. I topped everything off with a thick coat of Gelous and a thick coat of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze... My OTP of top coat for glitters. 

Lynnderella polishes can be purchased on eBay or Storenvy. Fiendish Fancies can be purchased in their online shop.

Feature 3: Invasion by Fiendish Fancies - Swatches and Review

Here it is folks! Feature 3: Invasion from Fiendish Fancies. We are so excited to share this amazing collection of polishes with you on this beautiful Monday in September. If it isn't already abundantly clear, we LOVE Fiendish Fancies! The Invasion collection is especially awesome... see for yourself in our swatches below. 

We have 3 shots of each polish: sun, shade and flash so you can see how complex these polishes really are.

All Out of Bubblegum is a "denim blue with indigo holo shimmer inspired by 80’s denim and aliens exposed." Stunning, the holo is to die for and I love the finish. One of my faves. 3 coats  + top coat.

Some of You Are Still Human is a "pink shimmer with iridescence inspired by the Gelatinous flesh of an imposter." Okay, now this is dainty and I love dainty. 2 coats + top coat.

Beware The Stare is a "pale yellow pearl inspired by Midwich Blondes." The inspiration for this polish is super spooky and I love the interpretation. It's definitely not our favorite of the collection but the finish is good for a pearly polish. 3 coats + top coat.

Mean Green Mother is a "lime green scattered holo inspired by Seymour’s flower-shop friend." We loved this spring green with holo! It's so fun and bright and pretty. 3 coats + top coat. Excellent formula.

Ack Ack Ack is a "lagoon iridescent shimmer inspired by Martians attacking." This is one of our favorites from the collection. It glows in the sunlight, as you can see. So stunning and an excellent formula. 3 coats + top coat.


Finally, we have Some of It Eats You Alive which is a "hot pink scattered holo inspired by Carnivorous Pink Goo." Okay, my absolute favorite from the collection. A total knockout polish with a stellar formula and stunning finish. This is WITHOUT TOP COAT! Look at how shiny and glossy it is! I'm dying over here. If you love pink, you need this polish. NOW.
The Complete Aliens Collection is now available in the Fiendish Fancies shop as a set or in individual bottles. You can follow Fiendish Fancies on Facebook and Instagram for updates and more swatches from other bloggers. *Products were provided for our honest review.*

Lynnderella Golden Rules + Fiendish Fancies Who's Laying These Eggs & Lynnderella Le Sigh + Fiendish Fancies Just A Little Twitchy

Hello beautiful people!
I just thought I would pop in for a quick hello and post two recent manicures I have worn.

Fiendish Fancies Who's Laying These Eggs? felt like the perfect base for Lynnderella Golden Rules and so I paired them up. This combination was the perfect early fall mani for a hot September day. 

Fiendish Fancies Just A Little Twitchy lent itself beautifully as a base for Lynnderella Le Sigh. Totally not seasonally appropriate but I felt like something bright and ethereal and this mani definitely fit the bill.

Lynnderella polishes can be purchased on eBay or Storenvy. Fiendish Fancies can be purchased in their online shop. *Fiendish Fancies were provided for my honest review.*

Swatches and Review - Fiendish Fancies Feature 2: Aliens Collection

Another week has passed and we have Fiendish Fancies' Feature 2: Aliens Collection to share with you today. This is a really fun and eclectic (in the best sense of the word) collection of polishes and we think you will like them as much as we do (which is a lot). This set of 6 polishes is inspired by the classic films of Ridley Scott and James Cameron.

Who's Laying These Eggs? is a "golden army green/gold shifter inspired by the Alien Queen's nest of ovum." I don't know about you but the thought of alien ovum kind of horrifies me out but this polish is so gorgeous! I don't think pictures do it justice because it's so complex and unique. The formula is buttery and reminds me a lot of Enchanted Polish circa the Beatles collection (the good old days). I used 3 coats plus top coat. It starts out sheer but builds perfectly and easily. Who's Laying These Eggs is my favorite from the collection.

Jonesy is a "Ginger-beige pearlescent shimmer Marmalade kitties." This polish is definitely not my personal cup of tea but I think a lot of people will really like it. I had some issues with streakiness on this one but overall it wasn't a deal breaker because this polish is so unique and delicate. It's a fun neutral because of the pearlescent finish. This is 2 coats plus top coat.

Next up is Get Away From Her (You Bitch) which is a "Speckled neon yellow with chunky black glitter inspired by Loaders and Airlocks." I chose to layer this one over OPI Did It On 'Em and I really like how it turned out. The base was different enough that the yellow glitter was still visible. You can definitely wear this on its own in 3 or 4 coats depending on nail length and your preference for VNL or not. This is one coat over the OPI with top coat. I did have to fish around a bit for the black glitters but they came up easily and it was worth the extra effort. 

A Xenomorph May Be Involved is a "metallic silver black microfine glitter inspired by Secreted resin and Alien jaws." Now I really love this polish too. This one was opaqe in two coats and smoothed out beautifully with top coat. I love the microglitter in here because it makes this polish so sparkly and adds a lot of depth. I will definitely be wearing this again. 

No Indigenous Life is a "indigo/blue shimmer with scattered holographic glitter Inspired by The foggy twilight of LV-426." What a stunner! The formula on No Indigeous Life is similar to Who's Laying These Eggs which is to say buttery and flawless. This is 3 coats and top coat but it dries really glossily on its own which is always a plus. This polish is also super complex with holo sparkle and a stunning shimmer. We will definitely be wearing this again too! 

And last but not least is A Little Twitchy which is a "milky pearl white with iridescent glitter inspired by the (Alien) Queen taking Bishop (apart); Ripley smashing Ash." This polish is great. I love a good white polish and this one is no exception. The pearly white finish and iridescent glitter stole my heart. I also love the inspiration behind it and the creative interpretation by Fiendish Fancies. This is 3 coats and no top coat so you can see how shiny and smooth it is on its own. 

Overall, this is a stellar collection. I would say the only polish that isn't perfect is Jonesy because of the issues I had with streaks. The wear time on these polishes is great too. We got 3 days without any chips and minimal tip wear before removing the polish at the end of day three. These polishes are beautiful interpretations of Alien classics!

The Complete Aliens Collection is now available in the Fiendish Fancies shop as a set or in individual bottles. You can follow Fiendish Fancies on Facebook and Instagram for updates and more swatches from other bloggers. *Products were provided for our honest review.*

Fiendish Fancies - Special Edition: Twisted Twins Inspired by American Mary

Happy Humpday everyone! 
It's a rainy September morning and my thoughts are drifting to October, more specifically Halloween. So, I thought it was fitting to feature Fiendish Fancies' Special Edition Twisted Twins which will be available in October. This duo is inspired by American Mary which is a Canadian horror film about a young woman who gets lured into the world of freakish surgeries for easy money.  

The Twisted Twins are I'm Completely Harmless (an orange-leaning red with red microglitter) and Connected To Yourself (a deep eggplant with purple shimmer). 

I'm Completely Harlmess applies perfectly in two smooth coats. The different lighting really shows off the richness of this fresh blood red polish. It's absolutely perfect for easrly fall because the glitter catches the sunlight and the shade of red reminds me of harvest time. This polish needs a top coat to really enhance the glitter and smooth it completely. 

Connected To Yourself is just to die for. I can't get enough of vampy purple/aubergine polishes. This one is so complex and, again, the different lighting options show how truly complex and gorgeous this polish really is. I used two coats for complete coverage. This dried pretty glossy on its own but I used a top coat to really bring out the shimmer which is just so so beautiful. I can see myself reaching for this polish often in October and November. 

The Twisted Twins will be available in limited quantities starting in October in the Fiendish Fancies shop. You can follow Fiendish Fancies on Facebook and Instagram for updates and more swatches from other bloggers.
