Fickle Fairy Potions

Today I'm trying out Fickle Fairy Potions.  Fickle Fairy is made by Tonya (IG: @rainey_day_nails) who puts love and care into these hand crafted polishes.  She was kind enough to send me these three polishes to review.

Foxy Lady is a beautiful violet crelly.  Crelly is a mix between cream and jelly meaning you can have a sheer look with one coat and build it as you go.  I used three coats.  The coverage was fantastic and color has a nice shiny finish to it.  I found Fickle Fairy Potion's to be a bit more viscous than other polishes but it didn't impede my polishing at all, it was just a bit easier to pick up the product and cover my nail in one swipe.

Time for me to complain a little, fasten your seat belts.  I have seen indie polish makers create every type of polish known to man from thermals to glitters to creams.  One type of polish I have not seen much of from indie makers are mattes.  I was so pleased to see that Sinfully Sweet dried with a pretty matte finish! Indie mattes are definitely a niche that has not been filled. With Sinfully Sweet I did notice that it did not harden quickly like other polishes.  I was still able to dent this polish a few hours after application.  The color is full coverage and a dusty red that looks great on me.

You Fashizzle my Nizzle is a pink jelly with lots of different glitters throughout in green, blue and purple.  I was able to paint this with one coat for a very thin pink and build it up to a more robust pink shade.  Because I've found Fickle Fairy to be a bit more sticky I was able to get all types of glitter in every dip into the bottle!  There's nothing I hate more than not being able to pick up glitter.
