My swatches are 2 thick coats of polish and topped with 1 coat of top coat.

For this topper I see the grey / gunmetal stand out when looking at the bottle, but also the rainbow of flakies.
I did actually do much thicker coats when swatching this topper, so there are definitely more flakies on my nails than my swatches of “Clink, Clink, Fish!”. This is a gorgeous rainbow of flakies and really all I see is just sparkle. This is such a fun topper and possibly my favorite of the 3! I also took photos of the topper over black and white as shown at the top of my blog post.
This polish applied super easily and everything laid down nice and flat with only one coat of top coat!

Now I do love popcorn, so this is definitely one of my top picks of this collection! It applied super easily and 2 thick-ish coats was enough for full coverage! I love this white crelly though. It’s almost unassuming–you look at it quickly and may not notice the flakies in it, but look again and there’s just all the sudden a ton of shimmer! This polish is great on its own, or would make a great backdrop for some nail art too!
I really can’t wait to wear this one again soon!

What a cute delicate polish!! I actually think 2 thicker coats will get you full coverage but I did 3 just because I felt like I hadn’t done a good job with my own application (nothing to do with the polish itself, just me 🙂 ). I love this delicate light blue / lilac color of this polish though. It definitely reminds me of cotton candy and now I really have a hankering for some! The pink flakies are also an incredible perfect addition.
The polish applied super easily (like all REL crellies honestly) and I adore how this polish looks matte! It somehow reminds me even more of cotton candy that way!

For this topper I see the green stand out when looking at the bottle.
There definitely appears to be more green when I see it on my nails as well. I only used one coat of top coat and I feel no texture which is great with so many flakies! I also did very thin coats of this topper so if you did thicker coats, I imagine it would have much more coverage like my swatches of the other toppers. 🙂 OR maybe you just want a thin coat of the topper! It would look great either way.
Now for toppers, I always swatch them alone as I love seeing them by themselves, but I also took photos of the topper over black and white as shown at the top of my blog post.

I’m not normally one for greens (as I probably say too much) but oh my gosh how fun is this one?! The mix of flakies and shimmer is just 100% nuts and pretty dang unique! The mix of green and purple flakies look fabulous together and the shimmer just sets everything off. I’m not sure if I was able to capture just how pretty the shimmer is, so I definitely will say that this is one you will want to see in person!
It also applied ultra easily and everything laid down nice and flat.

For this topper I see the blue stand out more when looking at the bottle.
I did once again do much thicker coats when swatching this topper, so there are definitely more flakies on my nails than my swatches of “Clink, Clink, Fish!”. I love how the blue metallic flakies are the focus in this one (I love blue so much, so I am a little biased). They just shimmer and shine. I also took photos of the topper over black and white as shown at the top of my blog post.

Butter Salty and Sweet – Lip Balm

Price: $4.00 USD
Description: A custom blend of sea salt caramel and good old movie theater butter!
Inspiration: Caramel Corn

Well this lip balm really has me hungry now. It smells just like caramel corn and honestly it’s blowing my mind a little at how buttery smooth the texture of it is. It really left my lips feeling moisturized for a quite a while. So this lip balm is definitely true to its name AND inspiration!


I love the theme of this collection and the lip balm just really helps clench it. You get to have bright and shiny nails to represent all the sights at the carnival and you also get the scents via the lip balm! I love it!
