Swatch & Review: Sasatinnie FCGL002

What's in a name? A polish by any other name may be as pretty, but one this awesome deserves better than the alphanumeric soup that is Sasatinnie FCGL002, a recent find from the bins at Sasa. It's a deep purple polish with gorgeous little flakes of opalescent colour. But unlike with a typical "flakie" polish, these don't depend on the changing light; the multi-coloured awesomeness is built right in!

Sasatinnie FCGL002 swatch


Shown above is 2 coats over Revlon Colorstay Bold Sangria, which is a good match for FCGL002's dark purple base. It probably would have layered up just fine by itself, but I figured I might as well conserve the awesomeness (I sure am saying "awesome" a lot about this polish!). From all the swatches I've seen online, FCGL002 is a very near dupe for Orly Fowl Play and OPI Merry Midnight, both of which are extremely hard to find these days, and it costs less than $3 US a bottle (downside, I have to doubt it's 3-free). It hasn't killed my Fowl Play lemming, but FCGL002 is definitely a fantastic find. Another score for the Sasa bins!

Ooh, in scheduling this post, I just realized it should be going up on Friday the 13th--good luck today, everyone!

  1. Beautiful! Orly Fowl Play is now in the core collection by the way! And where in the US are you that you have access to this brand? JW. (=

    1. Thanks! And I was so happy, I found Fowl Play while I was in the States last month, so yay, another lemming slain!

      I'm not actually in the States--I live in Hong Kong, which has a chain of beauty supply stores called Sasa, and Sasatinnie is kind of their "house brand" polish, which is just set out in big bins for you to dig through to find a colour you want. Potluck what you'll see on any given trip, but it's kind of fun too. ;)

    1. Haha, hope you like it! No idea what it'll look like, but that's part of the fun of the bins. ;)

      Had such a ridiculously fun time combing Columbia's nail shops together, and hooray for Ulta!! The rest of the trip was all kinds of busy, running a million errands and things, but it was wonderful to see family again. ♥

  7. This color is beautiful, even if it doesn't kill your lemming. And that price...don't you love those?

    1. Thanks, Amanda, and totally yes! I wasn't a huge fan of digging through the bargain bins at first, but after some of the great (and cheap!) polishes I've found, I'm coming around to thinking of the mystery digging as part of the fun. ;)

  9. I grabbed up Fowl Play recently from Ebay for about $7...not too bad and I saw many bottles on there.
    Some people hate Ebay but I've never had any issues with buying polish on there...I just steer clear from uber-rare polishes because I feel I'd get a fake and never even know it.
