The Lady Varnishes Fantastic

Disclaimer:  These polishes were offered at a reduced price or at no charge to manicuremanifesto.com in exchange for published reviews.  All reviews are fair, honest and reflect my personal opinion.  

In general my favorite polish colours are darker jewel tones so when I saw Fantastic (The Ninth Doctor) from the Bigger on the Inside collection I might have drooled a little bit.  Fantastic is a black jelly polish filled with silver micro glitter small green glitter and medium blue, fuchsia and black hex glitter.  The listing calls the fuchsia glitter 'maroon' but in my opinion it's more pink than red.

Considering how much larger glitter there is in this polish it actually applied very easily.  I didn't need to use the dabbing method to get the larger glitters fairly evenly distributed on each nail.  The pictures all show one coat of Fantastic over The Lady Varnishes Raven King Duochrome (a very dark blurple) with one coat of Gelous as a top coat in natural sunlight. 

There were a couple nails where I could have potentially used a second layer of top coat due to the placement of the largest black hex glitters.  I can still feel their edges a little bit in some places.  They aren't curling.  This is just due to their size.  Unless you are super picking about have a 100% flawless glass sheen at every angle though one coat of Gelous is enough.

Overall, I love this polish! How could I not?  It pretty much contains all my favorite colours.  If you love it too you can get a bottle of your very own from her Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLadyVarnishes.  What do you think of this glitter combination?
