Glam Polish Fantasia Multichrome Flakies

Multichrome Flakies have exploded onto the indie scene in the last couple of months, and I for one am so excited to see a new finish!  These multichrome flakies bring all the glorious colour shifting qualities of regular multichrome polishes, but because they are flakies they have a metallic reflective shine that makes the sparkle so bright.

Today I have three of the four multichrome flakie polishes recently released by Glam polish.  There was a little mix up with my package which meant I received two bottles of Eternity Dragon and no Star Shadow, but I gave my extra bottle to my mum, who was delighted with the polish, and promptly layered it over Lacquistry Amazeballz (and it was awesome x1000)

Let's take a closer look.  For all of these pictures I decided to show off the polish without layering it.  I really wanted to see the effect of the polish all on its own.  These polishes are definitely layering polishes, but it's very easy to achieve full coverage on the nail without a thick gloopy mess when you use a make up sponge. 

I started with a single layer of the polish and then working one nail at a time with the sponge.  Paint some polish onto a small bit of sponge, and then dab it on.  The flakies transfer perfectly and the base polish is soaked up by the sponge meaning you don't end up with any thickness.  The key though is ensuring you use a small sponge and only dab on your nail, because otherwise you will end up with flakies all over your skin which are a pain to remove (unless of course you use Liquid Latex or Liquid Palisade)

Comet Storm - The flakies are mostly purple and pink in this one but they colour shift through to green and yellow.

Dreamscape - The base flakie colour is actually a reddish copper colour which then shifts through green to yellow and blue.  The main base colour is best seen in the photo in the sun.

Eternity Dragon - a warm copper base that shifts to light green.

I'm really loving these multichrome flakies and am excited to see so many indie brands coming out with them.  I've always been a huge fan of regular iridescent flakies that you need to layer over dark colours to get full effect.  But because these multichrome flakies are totally opaque, you can wear them over any colour and still see the full colour shift.

The Glam Polish Fantasia Flakie Collection is available from Be sure to keep up with the Glam Polish Facebook page for more Fantasia Flakies and postage details for Christmas - yes there is still time!


  1. I, too, like to see these new multichromatic flakie polishes on their own but I've never tried application using the sponge technique you describe -- genius! I love the dappled, mosaic effect that you show so well in your close up macros. Another thing I love about the finish on these is how the reflectivity of the flakies produces a scintillating sparkle in direct sun, although indirect light and shade make the entire spectrum of colors more accessible. I think my favorite of the polishes you've featured today is Dreamscape. Outstanding photos, excellent post!

  2. These look so amazing! I love your photos :-D

  3. Thank you for such gorgeous posts of such lovely polishes, Aussie indies really do blow my mind.
