November, A Box Indied

Greetings & Nailutations!

I look forward to the start of every month now.  I receive two monthly boxes at the start of every month.  My Julep Maven box which is a Seattle based company and 5-free (does not contain 5 of the harmful chemicals) and my A Box, Indied.  What I love about A Box, Indied is that there are 5 indie (non-mainstream) nail polishes in it from 5 different indie makers and all limited edition made only for this box.  The October polishes were great & I got to try 4 new indie makers!  This month is similar & I got to try 3 new indie makers!  There are a total of 10 indie makers that contribute, but I believe others are looking into contributing.

Let's get into the show & tell!!

The first one is full of holo goodness.  This is AMAZING...and it's called Amaizing.  This nude holo was absolutely stunning.  In my light box it was a toned down nude but as soon as I stuck it under the light bulb in the kitchen the holo was ignited!  Look at those colorful sparkles and these are still photos!  This is my first Different Dimension and not my last.  Formula was spot on for a holo, not thick & easy to apply.

Next up is a Dollish Polish glitter topper called Indian Corn.  As soon as I saw this I knew I had to wear it & not just swatch it.  It debuted in my Instagram with some nail art of a fox.  This glitter topper contains purple, orange, gold, copper colored hexes.  Again, this was my first Dollish Polish and I was pleased with the formula. Each dip of the brush brought consistant numbers of glitters.  One of my favorites from this box.

Third polish is a Freak Show Polish called Harvest Hayride.  This blue is gorgeous, it was a creamy jelly with shards of different glitters.  Brush & formula glide on smoothly like butter.  It dries to a matte finish which made the glitters very difficult to see, so a top coat was necessary. The glitters drop to the bottom, so make sure you give it a good shake prior to use or turn it upside down while applying your base coat.  Not my first Freak Show Polish, I mean who isn't attracted to a Freak Show?

Fourth polish is Fall In New England by Liquid Sky Lacquer.  I have a few holo goodies from Liquid Sky Lacquer & this was my first glitter bomb from the line.  I am typically not a fan of orange on my skin tone (I'm too pale to pull it off), but orange glitter with green, purple and orange medium hexes made me see the fall foliage in New England.  Being in Arizona...we don't really have a fall season, so I don't get to see the beautiful leaves.  This polish made me see it.  As with the other Liquid Sky Lacquers the formula is top notch and easy to apply.  There is no undie in this photo (for non-nail speakers this means I am not wearing a solid color underneath....all glitter baby!).

Last polish is from Wicked Polish called Black Friday.  This is a black jelly with gold holo bars & little gold glitters.  This was my first Wicked Polish and it looks absolutely stunning.  The only thing I had trouble with is that it was a bit thick.  Still happy with it overall....I mean it's polish!!  haha

If you are interested in purchasing A Box, Indied visit Llarowe online store.  As boxes sell out, at the end of the month they switch to selling the polishes individually.  So if you have a favorite, keep watch!

Happy Polishing
