The A to Z of Untried: Foxes, Flowers & Floaties

Hi lovelies!

I have three more untrieds to show off today, so let's get right into it!

FOX & OWL Pretty Evil

Fox & Owl - Pretty Evil

My first polish by Fox & Owl finally gets a look in! I adore black and pink together, and the added silver hexes and holographic pieces complement the vibrant pink really nicely. I did a test swatch and knew this would be too sheer for my liking so I did 2 dabbed coats over black undies and I didn't feel like I lost much depth. I did need a good lashing of thick top coat. Overall, a nice introduction to Fox & Owl.

ARCANE LACQUER Flower Bomb

Arcane Lacquer - Flower Bomb

This polish from Arcane Lacquer was a nice little surprise in the drawer - I think I must have bought it in Boxing Day sales, I definitely spent far more than I should have at the time. Flower Bomb is so impossibly dark that I had trouble capturing it without some serious exposure compensation. It's a blackened teal that actually leans far bluer than my pictures show. I did three coats to cover up VNL, but I think I should have left it at two because I think it pushed the darkness a little too far. The sprinkle of micro flakies brings a lovely subtle glimmer of light from within the dark base that I love.

SALLY HANSEN Floaties

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Floaties

What's this? A plain creme from a mainstream brand? Though not seen often around these parts, I still have plenty in the collection. Floaties was a summer impulse buy when I was seeking a nice neutral peach shade. Obviously I remembered I don't really wear simple neutrals, so it ended up in the drawer.

Usually I can rely on Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes to have a good formula but Floaties was lacking a bit which I'm putting down to the pastel shade. It was still a bit patchy at 3 coats which was disappointing as the colour is actually really lovely.

And that's all for today, see you soon! x
