5 polishes (in this post)

Ethereal: Melisseus

Ethereal continues her Greek Mythology theme with Melisseus, the Greek demi-god of honey and beekeeping. Melisseus is a honey-tinted super linear holographic polish.

And I just don’t have the words to describe how in love with this polish I am.

When Meagan says “super holographic,” she means it. The holo flame on this polish is not of this world.

It does pull the teensiest bit green on me, but I don’t even mind it. Not when the color is almost overwhelmed by the flame. On me it’s an ultra-flashy neutral. I put it on my right hand as soon as I could, and there it will stay…forever, quite possibly. Forever and ever and ever.

2 coats + top coat

Femme Fatale: Foiled Again

Femme Fatale continues her candy theme with this polish inspired by foil wrappings on Easter eggs. Foiled Again is a glitter topper with all sizes of metallic and holographic shards and flakes. I’d say the dominant colors are gold, magenta, purple, and blue, with significant accents of red and teal.

I’m showing this in lots of different ways, as FF toppers always inspire lots of fun combinations!

Index to pinky: brushed glitter gradient, sponged on, 1x over black, 1x over Ethereal Melisseus; 2 coats of top coat for all

Great Lakes: I Am Melon Lord

GLL continues her Avatar: The Last Airbender theme with this polish inspired by Toph. I Am Melon Lord features a melon green base loaded with orange/gold/green shifting shimmer. This polish feels like the green sister of The Avatar State. The shimmer is almost microflake-esque, so I love the sparkly effect. There’s also a subtle scattered holo effect that is quite lovely.

2 coats + top coat

Kathleen & Co.: Lava Rock

Kathleen & Co. continues her Nature theme with Lava Rock (the name on my bottle is incorrect), which features a black base with red/copper/gold shifting shimmer and scattered holographic sparkle. I can really imagine the fiery coals of a volcano through this color palette!

Lilypad: Whispers in the Dark

Lilypad continues her Magical Images theme with Whispers in the Dark, which features a petrol blue jelly base with silver holographic microglitters and a rainbow of iridescent flakes. The jelly base is difficult to photograph, but it’s a very green-leaning blue color. Since it’s a jelly, it can be built up to this darker color in three coats, but can be left at two coats for a brighter look.

3 coats + top coat
