Fantasmic Flakies December Group Custom ft. Contrary Polish

10 comments

Hiya guys! After recovering from my back injury and a crazy whirlwind holiday week, I realized I had this post sitting in my drafts. I'm SO embarrassed! Luckily though I'm still sharing it in time for you to get your polish buying on. Enabler mode activated, haha.

Today I'm sharing swatches for the gorgeous The Lady is a Vamp by Contrary Polish. This shade was created exclusively for the Fantasmic Flakies Facebook group. As you may have guessed by the name, this Facebook group was created to unite all flakie polish lovers. Since this shade was created for the group, you have to be a member in order to purchase it. If you're not one yet, click here to head on over and join!


The Lady is a Vamp will be available for purchase December 5th through December 31st via a “hidden” listing that will only be posted in the Fantasmic Flakies group. Each full-size bottle will retail for $11.00 and in mini-size for $5.50.


The Lady is a Vamp can be described as a deep purplish red jelly with pink ultra chrome flakes, holo flakes, and black microflakes. The shade is inspired by a photo of a vampy dress that was submitted to the group and voted on by the members.


The formula has a sheer jelly-like application, but builds up evenly for an opaque finish. The flakie distribution per brush stroke is amazing! The flakies layer themselves between layers almost creating a pond-mani like effect. It dries down smooth and with a nice natural shine on its own. However it has such a squishy jelly look after just one layer of topcoat! So stunning. Shown in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.


Thankfully I received my matte topcoat just in time for this swatch session. Of course, I couldn't help myself you guys and had to see this beauty matted. And it payed off! It totally made this vamp-icious shade even vampier.


Glossy vs Matte... which one do you guys love? I can't make up my mind on this one, haha. In either case though this shade is definitely a must-have for us vamp-lovers.

To recap, The Lady is a Vamp will be available for purchase December 5th through December 31st via a “hidden” listing that will only be posted in the Fantasmic Flakies group. Each full-size bottle will retail for $11.00 and in mini-size for $5.50.

  4. Gorgeous! I love it glossy for its vampiness and depth and matte for its unique look... both looks are too different to choose a fave, I love both.
