Bellaluna Cosmetics: October Birthstone "Fauxpal"

***Press Sample***


It's still hot, FYI.  We'll just leave it at that, I feel like I'm beating a dead horse.

Today I've got the October birthstone polish by Bellaluna Cosmetics to show you!  It's called "Fauxpal" and it's based off the Opal birthstone.







Fauxpal is a sheer white packed with large solid white flakies and tons and tons of rainbow shimmer - it very much resembles an opal!  Despite the larger flakes, this still applied quite smoothly and evened out with each layer.  I am wearing three coats in the photos above with a topcoat for added shine and to really make that rainbow shimmer pop!  Because the formula is a tad thicker in order to keep the flakies suspended and not falling to the bottom, this did take a little longer to dry, and also dried to a very light texture.  However, a quick-dry topcoat (in this case, Pahlish's Magic Mirror) smoothed everything out, and I was able to do normal things with no damage to the polish after 10 minutes of dry time.

You can get this beauty at Bellaluna's new shop HERE.  You can also follow the Facebook Page and Instagram for updates on current and upcoming releases.

What do you think of this polish?  Are you an October baby, or a fan of opals?

Polish was sent to me by the maker for photos and a review.  Any and all experiences with the polish are my own and my opinions remain 100% honest.

  3. This is a very pretty polish, although I'm not sure I'm a fan of the larger flakes. It's been way too warm here as well. It's Fall; I'm ready for cooler temperatures (and the ability to have chili/soup almost every night!)
