Bee's Knees: Throne of Glass series


Bringing you three flakie polishes today, of which I was unfamiliar with their names so I did a bit of research. These are derived from the Throne of Glass series written by Sarah J. Maas.
These launched today and are available right now at https://beeskneeslacquer.com/

-Manon Blackbeak-a deep red with ghost flakes, the larger flakes that shift red to gold to green, similar to UP.

Such a squishy, deep, dark, true red. In person, it was actually slightly darker than the photos show. It looks like candy - and those flakes!
Two coats/topcoat.

-Abraxos-inspired by Manon's wyvern Titus, this is a charcoal polish with ghost flakes, the larger flakes that shift red to gold to green, similar to UP.

I love me a grey crelly with flash! The flakes in this are subtle until the light hits them, then blam! There they are.
Two coats/topcoat.

-The Thirteen-a blackened blue loaded with UP and ghost flakes, the larger flakes that shift red to gold to green, similar to UP.

Woo! What a vampy UP polish! It is definitely teal. Shown in two coats really darkens it. This would be a bit lighter if layered over a lighter shade of teal. Quite versatile, and look at the green flash!

The formula for each of these was good - smooth and easy to apply. I especially enjoyed Abraxos from this set!
