Indie Wednesday (On Thursday): Fanchromatic Nails

Hello a day late, everyone!  As I mentioned yesterday on Facebook, we had pretty nasty storms all day yesterday.  I had attempted indoor pictures of these colors, but they just didn’t turn out great and I didn’t want to post without pictures that could at least attempt to show the polishes off.  So I waited until today, and thankfully the sun was shining!

So for today’s Indie Wednesday, I’m going to be featuring 2 lovely polishes from Fanchromatic Nails!  This shop opened up for business just a month ago, so they’re still pretty new!

This shop specializes in ‘Geek’ nail colors- in other words, inspired by all things awesome.   I’m glad lots of ladies are stepping up to fill the void that NerdLacquer left!

For my first order, I bought the 2 Limited Edition shades- Astrometrics and Spatial Anomaly.  These are only available in mini size for $4.75 each, and they’re limited edition due to the ingredients- it’s not guaranteed there will be more available.

Would you LOOK at those sparkles?  I will freely say- this is what these colors look like on the nail, though a tiny bit toned down.  I tried so hard to do these justice but really feel I came up short.  If you’re looking to get your money’s worth with an indie purchase, this would be it.  These babies are filled with a TON of different glitters- shapes, sizes, colors.  All while remaining fairly subdued and wearable.

First up is Astrometrics!

From the Etsy listing: ‘Astrometrics: measuring the movements of planets and other celestial bodies. This is some DEEP space science stuff. Fortunately, when translated into nail polish, “deep space stuff” just means you’ll really enjoy staring at your nails.’

Both of these colors were inspired by Star Trek- which I’ve never watched.  One of the very few things we haven’t watched in this household, too!

These pictures are all 3 coats, plus 1 coat of Color Club topcoat.  I could’ve gotten away with 2 coats, but it wasn’t completely opaque.  I didn’t need any cleanup- which is to say, the polish behaved well 🙂

Next up: Spatial Anomaly!

Again from the Etsy listing: ‘Something’s there, but we don’t know what it is and we can’t explain it. That’s right, we discovered a spatial anomaly!’

This color is such a pretty shade.  It’s a shimmery grey, filled with different colors, shapes and sizes of glitter.  There’s come color shift, some holo, some sparkle… it’s so fun to look at!

Like Astrometrics, this was 3 coats, though 2 would have been fine.  No cleanup at all was needed.  Both dried quite quickly as well.

As a disclaimer- I’ve spent the better part of 2 weeks referring to this one as ‘Spatial Anatomy’, so I apologize if you catch that misspelling anywhere 🙂

You can find Fanchromatic Nails here on Etsy, and you can follow here on Facebook to keep up to date on news.  There’s also an awesome Game of Thrones collection (Seven Kingdoms), along with the rest of the Star Trek inspired polishes (Strange New World) to check out!

  2. I was checking this store out the other day and decided I need these 2 pretties. Also, it will be very easy to convince my hubby of this need since they are based on Star Trek. Yay for geeks! 🙂
