Quixotic Polish Island Flakies Collection

Hello, lovelies! I have a gorgeous new collection from Quixotic Polish to share with you today.

The Island Flakies collection consists of 3 flakie filled polishes and a topper. This collection will be released on 7/8 at 10 am PST and will be $40 for all 4 polishes. I will list the individual prices along with the descriptions. Let’s dive into swatches, shall we?

Tiki Torches is a soft neon orange crelly filled with gold to pink to green shifting iridescent flakes and will be $11.50. I loooove this polish! Orange is not a color you see a lot of lately and I love it! My swatches show 3 thin coats and a quick drying top coat. The polish applied well and removed easily, too. 

Hoohiwahiwa is an aqua crelly filled with vivid pink to green shifting iridescent flakes and will be $11.50. This one is another stunner! The name of this polish may be a mouthful (yes, I googled how to say it and the meaning🤓) but it’s so fitting since it means to be dear or greatly beloved! It was definitely greatly beloved by me! It was opaque for me in 3 easy coats and I topped it with my favorite quick drying top coat. 

Poolside Luau is a vivid periwinkle crelly, loaded with pink to green shifting iridescent flakes and will be $11.50. I adore this color and the flakes make this polish really beautiful. My swatches show 3 thin coats and a quick drying top coat. 

Lei It On Me is a flakie topper packed with pink to gold to green shifting iridescent flakes and will be $10. This polish looks stunning over darker base colors but I also showed it over some brighter and lighter colors. My first swatches show 1 coat of Lei It On Me over black and white. Look how amazing it is over black! It looks so pretty over white, too! Very elegant.

For my next swatches, I showed Lei It On Me over red, neon pink, green and purple. I really love the way it looks over so many different colors but the green and purple are my favorite out of these 4! 

This collection is gorgeous and perfect for summer! I love the colors and the Flakies. The topper allows for so much versatility, they’re all just fabulous and definitely must haves. Thank you for reading!

Rusalka, Rusalka is a soft navy cream with crushed gold flakes. I love blue and gold together so this polish is stunning! I’m really in love with the crushed gold flakes that Shannon has been using in her polishes! This polish was opaque for me in 2 easy coats. The formula was perfect as is the norm with Pahlish. Removal of the polish was easy as well. The gold flakes did not require any extra scrubbing at all. 

Wild Rushes is a cool toned olive cream with crushed gold flakes. Shannon does olives so well, I end up loving them all! This be…
