Swatch and Review: Fancy Gloss Black Heart

Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have a swatch of Fancy Gloss Black Heart to share with you! 

I am a new customer for Fancy Gloss. I am always scouting Instagram and Facebook groups to find new brands to try and when I saw someone's swatch of Black Heart, my jaw hit the floor. Let me preface this review by saying that I own very VERY few thermals because its my understanding that they have a shelf life and I have so many bottles of polish that I just know I won't use them before they stop shifting. I knew Black Heart was a thermal and I tried to resist the siren's call but I failed. Once I got this in my grabby claws, I had NO RAGRETS! 

Okay, okay. Enough babbling. Let me show you my swatch. The first photo I have is just the plain swatch with no nail art. Formula wise, Black Heart was a bit on the thicker side as it has a very jelly/crelly like consistency. Application was very easy though and I was able to use thin coats despite it being a thicker polish. Each coat self leveled nicely and dried to the touch within 5 or so minutes. My swatch shows two coats plus topcoat. 

But I didn't stop there! Of course I didn't. I decided that I needed some sexy black stamping over this gloriously glossy thermal. I picked M Polish Cayuga as my stamping polish so that it would disappear like a magic trick when my hands were cold. I was only able to get a good photo of it during transition because I got busy over the few days I was wearing it and forgot to grab a cold and warm photo. Boooooo...and I call myself a nail blogger. :'D 

From what I know about Fancy Gloss, she has scheduled restocks which means that Black Heart isn't currently available but you can sign up for a newsletter on her website to notify you of restocks. She also has a fan group that you can join HERE, and you can follow her on Instagram for news about future restocks and new polishes. 

What's your favorite thermal?

  1. Wow this is beautiful, I love the stamping. I was lmao at the NO RAGRETS! My fav thermal is prolly the first thermal I ever bought from Cameo Colour Lacquers called Becky's Intriguing Indecision

  2. I love this!! Fancy Gloss was the first indie I bought from and they were thermals. Two have stopped working but they're glitters and still very pretty!

  3. OMG, yes!! This is what stamping on a thermal should be. LOVE.

  4. So pretty! I haven't tried FG before, thanks for the review!

  5. Absolutely stunning. And the black stamp is genius!

  6. This is a lot of fun! They just released a blue one I desperately need! I haven't tried this brand, and I need to!
