Maleficent Duo from Baroness X + Firecracker Lacquer

What do you do when two of your favorite brands, Firecracker Lacquer and Baroness X, decide to do a duo inspired by your favorite Disney character? After flailing like a fool, of course, you start begging to be one of the lucky ones to share it with the world. I mean...my first-born is a pretty fair price, I think.


(promotional samples ahead)

Tragedy of a Faerie
This is a super complex pewter holo with green-blue flakes and a dusting of holo glitters. Every angle gives a new shine and shimmer. If you normally like dark colors, but want a bit of a change, this is right in your comfort zone while still being different. I used two thin coats plus a layer of Seche Vite.

Dragons are a Girl's Best Friend
The color palette of this holo just makes my fangirl heart pitter-patter. This one is a deep inky almost-metallic violet filled with tiny lime hexes and holo sparks. If ever there was a color scheme that screamed Maleficent, this would be it. And no one does these glitter + holos better than FcL. I used two thin coats here, plus a Gelous/Seche Vite sandwich for this ultra-luminous look. If only the sun had stayed out for a few more minutes, I could have shared the twinkle of those holo sparks.

  5. Dragons are a Girl's Best Friend is absolutely unique! I guess I'm getting older though and I prefer the first one which is more of a classic!
