I reviewed the entire Flora & Fauna collection by CND last year and was surprised to find I really liked Fragrant Freesia as I tend not to wear a lot of nude polishes or pinks. It is least pigmented of the collection but is absolutely beautiful when worn. A pearly nude pink with light flecks similar to those found in Wild Moss from the same collection.
It is fairly sheer, so three coats are needed to get full opacity and hide the visible nail line but then you get three layers of those pretty flakies that are almost the same colour as the polish, just a little iridescent.
Since it is alphabet nails day, I am trying to do a nail art for each polish so stamped OPI Meet Me On The Star Ferry (review here) over Fragrant Freesia in a floral swirl design using one of the stamping plates from the MoYou London The Pro collection available in Canada at Trade Secrets or direct from MoYou.
The gold shimmering purple was dark enough to show over this gentle pink while not being too in your face. The shimmer barely shows in the OPI stamped design, but it breaks up the purple base colour enough to make it less in your face too.

This is lovely! I also don’t wear nudes much, but those flakes make it something special.
Very pretty and delicate. 🙂 I really like the stamping you did on top.
This is such an elegant, wearable shade!
I love this polish so much! A beautiful nude with a little something extra. It’s lovely on you!
I am difficult when it comes to nudes, but this one is gorgeous. And that stamping, perfection.
that is such a pretty neutral.
