Today I have the June exclusive polishes from Llarowe's A Box, Indied (just barely getting them posted in the month of June!). As previously mentioned, Llarowe in an online indie stockist which has a monthly subscription box. The box's theme was "Nauti(cal) Indied" and took inspiration from sailing and the ocean. The box is still available for single month purchase for a reduced price.
Now let's get to some swatches.
First up is Stormy Seas created by Colors By Llarowe. Stormy Seas really does look like a stormy sea...when the light in the sky grows dark and the water darkens. It contains purple iridescent micro flakes, turquoise iridescent flakes and magenta shimmer in a royal blue base. Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.
Next is Girly Bits Cosmetic's contribution called Pirate Booty. This polish is a gold glitter bomb filled with gold hexes in multiple sizes. After two coats there was clear patches of visible nail, so I did 2 coats with a sponged on layer and it was textured with each layer. I love how sparkly it is in the daylight bulb. Photos show 2 thin coats plus 1 sponged on and 2 coats of shiny top coat.
Hare Polish's contribution is called Lost on Abalone Shores and is a grey crelly that contains purple and green iridescent flakes as well as green holographic flakes. The color combination is quite original and nothing I have seen before. Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat (1st and 2nd photos) and matte top coat (3rd and 4th photos).
The last polish in the box is Different Dimension's Ships Ahoy! Ships Ahoy! is a blue holographic polish is green small hexes as well as green iridescent flakes. I love how this polish looked in my daylight bulb. Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.
Matte Top Coat: Polish Matte'rs from www.girlybitscosmetics.com
Loves: I really like the imagery that this collection portrays...sailing, oceans, pirates! My favorite of the group is Serum N5 because it glows in the dark and really paints the picture of a sailing adventure.
Wishes: For a summer box, the colors were quite dark (more winter/fall), so I imagine this may be why the box hasn't sold out (and is actually on sale for a reduced price).
Which is your favorite?
