Fall Together - a blackened teal with bright copper shimmer & lots of red/copper/orange/gold ultra chrome chameleon flakes. The first coat I applied, definitely showed the teal but as I added another coat, the polish appeared nearly black. I like this because if you wore it over a light cream base, you could get two different looks from this polish. Shown is two coats with topcoat.

The flakes are shown using four different techniques.
index: I noticed the cap had a very fine almost powder like coating on it when I took it off, so I ran my finger through it and then rubbed it onto this nail.
middle: I used tweezers to grab and place the flakes.
ring: I dipped my fingernail right into the pot. Mashed the flakes down then brushed off the excess.
pinky: I sprinkled the flakes from the pot onto my nail to give them a light dusting.

Under A Hula Moon's last wax melt in their series inspired by their love of the Beatles.
"With a Little Melt from My Friends" wax melt is a blend of fall traditions. Sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows, sipping warm maple bourbon on a cool night after a day spent pumpkin picking. We'll be singing, "I Get By With A Little Melt From My Friends."
No cap.

True to it's description, I definitely get a syrupy maple note and further into melting the campfire and marshmallows come through. I've melted two cubes from this pack and the longevity is fantastic. It's been in my warmer for at least a week, turning it on for 5-6 hours at a time.

All the polishes had good formulas with no issues to report. Great formulas are or have become the norm for most indie brands and it feels a bit redundant to mention in my individual comments, so plopping it down here at the end. :)
